The River Course At Keystone

The River Course at Keystone
155 River Course Drive
Keystone, CO 80435
(970) 496-4444

Keystone's newest 18-hole course was designed by award-winning Dana Fry and Michael Hurdzan, Ph.D., landscape architects renowned for their environmentally sensitive golf course designs.

The River Course features a 194-foot drop from the tee to green on the par-4, 509-yard 16th hole and finishes with a challenging navigation through 12 bunkers on the scenic 18th hole. Keystone offers two scenic courses - Keystone Ranch Golf Course and The River Course at Keystone.

With the front nine oriented around the path of the Snake River and the back nine threaded through a lodgepole pine forest, this par-71, Hurdzan-Fry course brings an element of drama to your game. Impressive elevation changes, variable bunkers and water hazards combine to challenge golfers of all levels. Add to that the magnificent views of snow-capped peaks and its easy to see this is a golfing experience unlike any other. Features of The River Course include a 200-foot drop in elevation and five to six tee boxes per hole.

"The River Course, designed by Hurdzan-Fry, is an eco-sensitive marvel that skirts bike paths, wetlands and the Snake River on the front nine before ascending to higher ground on the back, where the views of the Gore Range and Continental Divide are spectacular - and the 200-foot drop at the par-four 16th is dizzying."
-Golf Magazine, February 2002

Keystone Ranch Golf Course

Keystone Ranch Golf Course

The Ranch Course features a traditional Scottish links-style design on the front nine and a traditional mountain valley layout on the back nine.

At the center of the top-rated Ranch Course lies the award-winning Ranch restaurant. The AAA Four-Diamond restaurant serves gourmet meals and golf lunches in an historic log homestead.

Challenge yourself and take your game to a higher level on this classic mountain golf course. Winding through lodge pole pines, around sage meadows and across a nine-acre lake, this par-72 course features slight elevation changes and many bunkers. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the Keystone Ranch Golf Course follows the legendary links-style of a Scottish course on the front nine, while the back nine presents a traditional mountain valley layout. Total yardage 7,090.

"Keystone's Ranch Course, laid out by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in 1980, is an open, high-meadow design with sagebrush and native grasses bordering many of the holes. The centerpiece of the course is the Ranch, on old log homestead that houses the clubhouse and a superb restaurant specializing in six-course meals served with Western flair. 'Best food in Colorado', commented one reader."
