Will it be the River Course or Ranch Course at Keystone?

The River Course at Keystone

Upon arriving into Keystone, you’ll see the River Course at Keystone winding alongside hwy 6 and the Snake River. This is the perfect spot to elevate your game (quite literally) with the par-72 course that winds through the Snake River on the front nine and rolls through a lodgepole pine forest on the back nine. The 18th hole will awe you with its perfect panoramic view of Lake Dillon and the beautiful Rocky Mountain peaks. If you start playing in the early afternoon, you can end at the 18th hole just in time for sunset over Summit County. Hurdzan-Fry designed this 4,762 – 6,886, par-71 course.

Summit Daily Dream 9 Favorite Holes:

Keystone River, No. 7, par 3, 195 yards

This par 3 is called “The Snake” for good reason. Pay close attention to the prevailing wind on this challenging 195-yard par 3. Tee shots should be played to the middle of the green to avoid hazards located in front, left, right and behind the green.

Keystone River, No. 16, par 4, 509 yards

Golfers should be at the peak of their game on this 509-yard par-4 hole, which features a dramatic elevation drop of nearly 200 feet. Stay right on this hole and enjoy the challenge, as well as the views of Keystone Ranch Golf.

The Ranch Course at Keystone

Located near the historic Keystone Ranch, the Ranch Course at Keystone takes you back in time with breathtaking mountain, historic buildings and the beautiful nine-acre Lake. Come play this links-style layout for the front nine before it transitions into a traditional mountain course for the back nine. Both the ninth and eighteenth hole feature a demanding over-the-water shot to test your skills (without losing too many balls). Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed this 5,582- to 7,090-yard, par-72 course.

Summit Daily Dream 9 Favorite Holes:

Keystone Ranch, No. 5, par 3, 190 yards
If one hole can accurately describe this great course, this is it. The most challenging par 3 comes in at 190 yards and is as intimidating to the eye as it is to play. This hole requires a solid tee shot that will land softly on the elevated green. Good luck there.

Keystone Ranch, No. 9, par 4, 368 yards

You might have noticed that pretty much all of these holes are ridiculously long — even the par 3s. So, here’s a short par 4. It is a risk-reward hole that allows golfers to take aim at the green. Knock it on, and you will have a great chance at eagle or birdie, or lay up to the fairway to set up a short approach shot to the green.
