Colorado Getaways 2022: Keystone Golf

Keystone Combo Keystone Ranch Golf Club and The River Course at Keystone

THE 36 STUNNING HOLES at Keystone Ranch Golf Club and The River Course at Keystone offer dramatically different interpretations of mountain golf.

Set among the original homestead and barns from an early 1900s lettuce and dairy farm, the older Ranch course, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, weaves through parkland, sage meadows, pine forests and around a 9-acre lake. Four sets of tees ranging from 5,041 to 7,017 yards—as well as a orange short-course orange tees at only 2,635 yards—give golfers of every level a chance.

So do the 2,561-yard orange tees that complement the five other teeing areas (4,748 to 6,886 yards) at the Hurdzan/Fry designed River Course. Here, from elevated tees, shots float against bluebird-sky backdrops featuring the Continental Divide, Soda Creek Valley and Lake Dillon. The front nine holes play around the path of the Snake River and the back nine holes wind up and down through a lodgepole pine forest.

Both courses offer a fully stocked golf shop, with the Ranch featuring the AAA Four Diamond Keystone Ranch restaurant, a Wine Spectator DiRoNa winner, and has been named by the prestigious Zagat Survey as Colorado’s best restaurant.
