We hope that you’ll be able to make the trip to spend the day or even a few days in Colorado Springs next week and be a part of history. I’d also like to mention that we still have a few rooms available at our Lodge. For rates and information about the different packages that we offer, please visit our website, LodgeatGGClub.com. You’ll probably feel inspired after watching the ladies play, so we recommend taking advantage of our golf package, which will allow you to play our 27-hole Kissing Camels Golf Course. It’s a popular option this time of year!
In addition to enjoying amazing mountain views, anyone who books a Lodge room at the Club will have access to our free shuttle service to/from the U.S. Women’s Open. Our shuttle will transport our Members and guests from Garden of the Gods Club to the U.S. Women’s Open and back throughout the day (7:30 am to 7:30 pm) starting on Thursday, July 7th, and ending on Sunday, July 10th. So just leave everything to us, and we will take very good care of you!
