Venue Features
The Scene:
With vision and dedication, The Garden of the Gods Club Grand Opening celebration was held in June of 1951.
Early accommodations were limited to only seventy at a time so to allow as many members as possible, the fete was spread over 3 days with entertainment by radio and movie legend, Rudy Vallee, “The Vagabond Lover,”, along with his orchestra and dancer Dan Dailey. On any given night of that summer, one might have found Robert Mitchum and Claudette Colbert, resting after a long day of shooting “The Korean Story” nearby, or entertaining their guest Jayne Russell.

Colorado Springs residents Judy Mackey and Brenda Smith purchased the Club in 2013, making this the first time it has been locally owned since it was sold in 2007. Today the Garden of the Gods Collection is celebrating a 65 year legacy and beginning to realize the vision of the owners. They are building on this iconic legacy and elevating the Club to one of unparalleled elegance and grandeur; being recognized as a premier private club in the Western United States. Mackey and Smith are excited to be in a position to shape the future of the Garden of the Gods Collection and to create a destination to welcome members as well as guests with the addition of the International Health & Wellness Center.

What we hear most from Members, guests and visitors is when they step through the doors of Garden of the Gods Club and Resort and see the majestic view it literally takes their breath away. 
Standout Venue Features:
It’s here: chiseled from the million-year-old rocks whose fingers touch the sky, shining from the vibrant brushstrokes of color that paint every sunset. These moments of bliss exist in every corner of Colorado Springs. And we’ve taken great joy in gathering all of it in one place. So that you and the people closest to you can spend a lifetime exploring a place with views to heaven. But a lifetime is not something to rush. It’s something to savor. To sip. To enjoy. To make part of the everyday fabric of your life. That’s why we built our one-of-a-kind club and resort in a place that reflects the natural wonder in which it’s immersed. Because when you’re lucky enough to live in a place like this, you need to make sure it’s properly enjoyed. Make your event magical by saying yes to Garden of the Gods Club and Resort.

Discover your new favorites, from Curry Fries, to Sweet Water Ranch Bison Sliders. They pair perfectly with our locally sourced Snakehips or a Rocks Punch.
