Built in 1898, Patty Jewett Golf Course is one of the oldest public golf courses west of the Mississippi, and is also one of the busiest courses in Colorado.
On June 25, 1919, William Jewett deeded the property (at the time it was called the Colorado Springs Golf Club) to the City for $1. His conditions were that it be maintained by the City for the primary purpose of golf, and for the course to be named after his wife, Patty Stuart Jewett.
Today, Patty Jewett remains a public golf course and operates as an enterprise. As an enterprise it is fully funded through greens fees and other money generated at the course.
The City also operates Valley Hi Golf Course. It is one of Colorado Springs' hidden gems, offering wonderful scenic views of Pikes Peak and Cheyenne Mountain. Constructed in 1956 and purchased by the city of Colorado Springs in 1975, Valley Hi has seen extensive improvements, making it one of the finest courses in the region.
