The River Course at Keystone

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2000

The River Course at Keystone is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout. The Hurdzan/Fry design comprises a flatter front-nine oriented around the Snake River. In contrast the back-nine winds through an attractive lodgepole pine forest. This tree-lined and mountain style course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

Impressive elevation changes, threatening bunkering and water hazards all play their part in providing plenty of golfing challenge. Usually good upkeep also contributes to the appeal of this well-crafted design. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
Pick of the holes: the memorable closing stretch includes the long par-4 16th, featuring a 194-foot elevation drop from tee to green. The scenic par-5 18th is awash with bunkers, and also provides wonderful views of Lake Dillon.

Stay&Play at Keystone: luxury onsite accommodation available a short drive from the golf course; see Where2Stay section below.
