With mild temperatures throughout the year, you can golf almost every day in the Royal Gorge Region. Gorgeous scenery delights golfers as their balls soar longer distances in the mile-high elevation.

Cañon City boasts the Four Mile Ranch Golf Club, which is sometimes referred to as a gentle giant—at times frustrating the professional or rewarding the novice. It has won several awards that include: Golf Digest 2008 #4 Best New Public Course in the United States, Travel and Leisure Golf 2008 Top 10 Best New Courses, Golf.com Top 10 New Courses You Can Play, and Colorado Avid Golfer Best New Course Public/Resort.

In Florence, golfers can play at the Sumo Golf Village, a world-class Gary Player Course that’s as exciting as a course can get. This par 72, 7,200-yard championship course has been built into the high-desert terrain, so it takes on the appearance of a Scottish or Irish links course with the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop.
