"Patty Jewett is more than a golf course, it's truly one of the major community hubs of Colorado Springs," said Pat Gentile, Patty Jewett superintendent. "I am excited for the next 100-year chapter of bringing together golfers, diners, businesses and residents alike as we work together to honor the legacy of this historic course and find ways to innovate and upgrade for future generations."
The celebration will include remarks from Parks' director Karen Palus, Mayor John Suthers, and Gentile. It will also feature an 18-hole putting green, music at the driving range, appetizers and a cash bar.
Built in 1898 and known as the Town and Gown Club, the course was purchased by William Jewett in 1910 and renamed the Colorado Springs Golf Club. After Jewett gained full ownership of the Suburban Land and Water Supply in 1919, he deeded the course to the City for $1, under the condition 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.
