The Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed Keystone Ranch follows the legendary links-style of a Scottish course on the front-nine, while the back nine present a traditional mountain valley layout.  Winding through lodgepole pines, around sage meadows and across a nine-acre lake, this par-72 course features slight elevation changes and many bunkers for a scenic, challenging round of play. The course has been awarded several notable accolades, including “Best Wedding/Party Venue” and“Best Mountain Course” by Colorado Avid Golfer.

Before or after play, golfers may relax at the comfortable Ranch Clubhouse, enjoying breathtaking views and full-service facilities including lockers rooms, professionally stocked golf shop and the Keystone Ranch Restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and après snacks and beverages daily. The Ranch restaurant, an AAA Four Diamond outlet, features a stunning dining room plus sitting room, as well as a breathtaking deck overlooking the course’s back nine, providing one of the best sunset views in Summit County. Whether enjoying a casual post-round beverage or indulging in a five-course meal from Executive Chef Steven Vlass, the Ranch is the perfect way to end a great day on the links.

“The golf offering at Keystone is truly unmatched in Colorado,” said Keystone Resort Director of Golf and Recreation Steve Corneillier. “We have 36 holes designed by world-renowned course architects, the perfect summer climate to enjoy play throughout the day and a lively resort atmosphere making it a destination the whole family can enjoy.”
