Long recognized as the state's superior golf resort, The Broadmoor's accolades have suddenly grown a bit more, well, broad.

Golf Magazine announced that the Colorado Springs mainstay had been named the No. 1 golf resort in North America, securing a "runaway win" in a poll of more than 8,000 readers on criteria that included golf, lodging, service and food and drink.

"It is a tremendous honor for all employees of The Broadmoor to be acknowledged by the readers of Golf Magazine as the No. 1 golf resort in North America," said Russ Miller, director of golf, in an email to The Gazette. "We are all very proud and thankful for this recognition."

The magazine cited propertywide renovations as a major factor to the survey results and readers selected The Broadmoor at the top spot in the service, lodging and food and drink categories.

The property is home to three 18-hole courses and has hosted 22 major championships, including seven PGA championships. The grounds laid witness to the first major championships for three players who would go onto earn spots among the greatest to play the game, including Jack Nicklaus (1959 U.S. Amateur), Juli Inkster (1982 U.S. Women's Amateur) and Annika Sorenstam (1995 U.S. Women's Open).

The 2011 U.S. Women's Open, won by South Korea's So Yeon Ryu, was the most recent major hosted at the 3,000-acre resort at the base of Cheyenne Mountain.

Last year The Broadmoor was recognized by "Colorado Avid Golfer" for "Best Resort Course" and "Best Course Conditions" in the state and was included on top 10 and 25 lists for best resorts globally.
