With their sprawling layouts and impressively appointed greens, these four private clubs, all of which were awarded four stars from Golf Digest,
merit a special look over their city-operated counterparts simply because of their more-rural settings. On any Denver-area course, though, out-of-town golfers should keep in mind that the high altitude affects golf balls like it does baseballs—which is why the Rockies have so many more home runs when they bat at home. It's generally agreed that your golf ball will go about 10%-15% farther in the thin air here than it would at sea level.

1 Lake Circle
Colorado Springs, CO
After a more than $200-million renovation, the B, as frequent guests call this hostelry, truly shines. The Old World ambience in Broadmoor Main—the signature pink building with the Mediterranean-style towers—was gussied up; small rooms were made larger, bathrooms were remodeled, and craftsmen restored the frescoes, walls, and ceilings in public areas. The spacious rooms in the cozier Lakeside building, most with fireplaces and either patios or balconies, are standouts. The South Tower's newly renovated rooms vary in size from snug to immense—request one with a lake-view balcony. In summer, families gather around the large infinity pool, which appears to flow into Cheyenne Lake. The award-winning spa offers innovative treatments such as a pearl glow body therapy, which uses pearl powder combined with a body lotion to hydrate and exfoliate the skin, and a range of massages including Thai, Swedish, hot stone, and Ashiatsu. The tennis center and its instructors are excellent. Pros:
you'll be thoroughly pampered at this world-class resort, choosing where to eat may be difficult because there are so many good options.Cons:
very expensive, rooms in the original West building are the least desirable. www.broadmoor.com. 993 rooms, 107 suites. In-room: safe (some), Internet. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf courses, pools, tennis courts, gym, spa, children's programs, parking, some pets allowed. Credit cards accepted.
3225 Broadmoor Valley Rd., 80906
Colorado Springs, CO
At this 217-acre resort on the slopes of Cheyenne Mountain, superb swimming facilities (including an Olympic-size pool), a variety of tennis courts, and a Pete Dye championship golf course tempt you to remain on property, despite the easy access to the high country. The main lodge is an attractive setting for relaxing and dining, with a massive stone fireplace and thick wooden beams supporting the soaring ceiling. The elaborate Sunday brunch is delicious. The guest rooms, in eight separate buildings on the hillside, are simply but attractively decorated, with private balconies. Most have white walls and wood furniture with colorful spreads on the beds. The views of nearby mountains are outstanding. Pro:
despite the many business meetings here, the property has a resort ambience, especially if you stay in a room that overlooks the golf course.Con:
you must walk outside to get to the main building. www.cheyennemountain.com. 311 rooms, 5 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bar, golf course, pools, tennis courts, gym, children's programs, business center, parking. Credit cards accepted.

103 W. Ryus Ave.
The shady courtyard, with its fireplace, is a selling point at this inn in the historic district of La Veta. There are some antiques in the guest rooms, but it's not a fancy place. The restaurant serves three meals a day. Pros:
next to galleries, a few blocks from Tom Weiskopf's Grandote Peaks Golf Course.Con:
