Golf Tees off at Keystone Resort Friday, May 13

KEYSTONE, Colo. — May 12, 2022 – Keystone is headed into summer with golf leading the way. The River Course at Keystone is set to open on Friday, May 13 and The Keystone Ranch Course will follow on Friday, May 20. Keystone’s full 36-hole golf facility with two authentic and distinct courses is set to operate daily through October 2, as weather and conditions permit. 

The Hurdzan-Fry River Course at Keystone is an exciting and dramatic course, featuring unbeatable views, impressive elevation changes, variable bunkers, water hazards and five sets of tees on each hole to challenge golfers of all abilities. The par-71 course offers different kinds of wonders offered by the Rocky Mountains including a 194-foot elevation drop from tee to green at the 16th hole, a spectacular view of Lake Dillon at the 18th hole, tracing the Snake River on the front 5 and winding through a lodgepole pine forest on par-36.  

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., The Keystone Ranch Course is set on historic ranchland where original structures and old western heritage remain throughout the course, providing a nostalgic feel amongst the breathtaking panoramic scenery, lodgepole pines, sage meadows and a nine-acre lake. The course sits on historic ranching land that housed multiple homesteads in the 1900s, with many outbuildings remaining on the course today including The Keystone Ranch restaurant. The AAA Four-Diamond outlet, set to open May 20, features a stunning dining room plus sitting room, as well as a breathtaking patio overlooking the course’s back nine, providing one of the best views in Summit County. 

The River Course at Keystone and The Keystone Ranch Golf Course offer a variety of private lessons, clinics, and programs designed for golfers of all abilities and ages. Keystone’s PGA teaching professionals provide private lessons and weekly offerings designed specifically for women, men, juniors, seniors and groups. Additionally, there are multiple social play and development programs offered each week, including short-game clinics, Birdies and Betty’s ladies’ play days, Boomers on the Links, and junior golf clinics.

Golf rates include a variety of options, including 9-, 18- and 36-hole rates, twilight rates, numerous season passes, memberships, and junior rates. For additional information, including booking a tee time, visit
