One of the most popular sites at the Academy is the Eisenhower Golf Course. A modern scenic facility with two 18-hole courses: the championship Blue, and the stunning Silver.
The Blue Course was previously named the top golf course in the Department of Defense by Travel and Leisure Golf magazine. Eisenhower Golf boasts two outstanding courses at very reasonable rates. The Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed Blue Course stretches to almost 7,500 yards and offers wide fairways and challenging greens, there are 5 sets of tees to accommodate players of all skill levels.
The Silver Course is a demanding course with a premium placed on accuracy rather than length. The course measures 6,519 yards from the championship tees and 5,559 from the forward tees. In addition to open play, a full tournament schedule is slated for spring, summer and fall months. Both courses offer stunning views of the Rocky Mountains.
Reservations for tee times are recommended, especially during the busy summer season. Eisenhower Golf offers golf instruction, golf clinics and a summer junior golf program, all of which are conducted by the PGA staff. Eisenhower is also the home course for the Air Force Academy’s intercollegiate golf team which plays host to a Division 1 tournament each September.
The newly built clubhouse features The Grill, which serves up excellent breakfast and lunch fare, the Eisenhower Room, the Pro Shop and locker rooms. Golf clubs, power and hand carts are available to rent from the Pro Shop.
Whether you’re coming to play or just enjoying lunch and some spectacular views, Eisenhower Golf is a must destination.
