The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed Keystone Ranch Course is set on historic ranch land where original structures and old western heritage remain throughout the course, providing a nostalgic feel amongst the breathtaking panoramic scenery. The Keystone Ranch restaurant, a 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 views in Summit County.
Named by GolfDigest 2016 Editors’ Choice as one of the five best golf resorts in the Rockies/Great Plains, Keystone boasts a beautiful 36-hole golf facility with two authentic and distinct courses. The Hurdzan-Fry designed River Course offers impressive elevation changes among a modern course design that has been built into the surrounding landscape.
