Five great Colorado golf course breakfasts

CASTLE ROCK
The Ridge at Castle Pines North. Catch the morning light on the Rockies from the stone and timber dining room of the Ridge Restaurant. Jump-start your day with a breakfast burrito smothered in green chili. $. 1414 Castle Pines Pkwy.; 303/688-4575.

COLORADO SPRINGS
Patty Jewett Golf Course. Take in the view of Pikes Peak towering above the tree-lined fairways as you dig into classic eggs Benedict at the Patty Jewett Bar & Grill inside the equally classic 1910 Spanish-revival clubhouse. $. 900 E. Española St.; 719/385-6944.

DENVER
Willis Case Golf Course. Overlooking impossibly green fairways against a dusky sweep of the Front Range foothills, this spot satisfies early-morning cravings with the Hungry Golfer's Special: three eggs, home fries, bacon, two pancakes, and toast. $. 4999 Vrain St.; 303/477-9512.

LAFAYETTE
Indian Peaks Golf Course. Regulars return to the Indian Peaks Grill for the hefty breakfast sandwich ― eggs and a choice of filling stuffed in a toasted roll ― and views to Longs Peak, Indian Peaks Wilderness, and the Flatirons. $. 2300 Indian Peaks Trail; 303/666-9597.

LITTLETON
Arrowhead Golf Club. At On the Rocks Bar and Grill, fanciful views of red sandstone formations are served up along with signature three-egg omelets like the Arrowhead ― stuffed with maple-pepper bacon and pepper jack cheese. $. 10850 W. Sundown Trail; 303/ 973-9614. ―James Boone
