Very solid course

Solid course and was in great shape. Best thing is you can actually walk this course. Not a bad hole on the course with a great setting and cool clubhouse and practice area. It is a little over priced but that is what you get in CO mountain towns.

Great Pace of Play

The outside staff presented a positive first impression of the facility. The pro shop staff was courteous and helpful. The course was in very good shape, especially coming out of the winter. The greens reflected a less than pleasant winter. The hole layout, fitting to the eye was excellent. The hazards were well marked. Pace of play was excellent, the four of us shot our handicaps or better, completing the round in 3:45. I prefer the Ranch course to the River.

Eclipse Day golf on a great course

Aug 21 our annual Colorado Golf Binge played Keystone Ranch during the eclipse. We had a great time playing this special course with very weird lighting on holes 8 thru 11. The course is in great condition and a favorite of our group.

Following a long winter and a very wet Spring including a 2' May snowfall both Keystone courses are in the best shape ever this summer. Some improvements have been made to the tee boxes for this season and the blue tees are a bit more foregiving than in the past.

I struggle often with the front nine especially holes 4 thru 6. I've donated lots of balls to the meadows there. But I still love the course.

Built in 1980 Keystone Ranch is the older of the two Keystone 18 hole courses. It's a perfect compliment to The River Course at Keystone. Part of your challenge in playing The Keystone Ranch is finding it! From I-70 follow Highway 6 through Dillon past The River Course at Keystone. Take a right on West Keystone Rd. Follow the signs to the Ranch Course across the Snake River. Take a right on Soda Ridge Rd then a left on Keystone Ranch Rd just before the Keystone Stables. Follow this up a steep slope past some great River Course back nine holes then down through the Ranch Course entrance. You'll see the quaint old log Ranch House (this is a super restaurant and the Ranch Pro Shop). Keystone Ranch offers 4 tee boxes (blue, white, gold and red) to fit your game.

The Keystone Ranch Course opens with a tree lined par 5 and par 4 similar to The River Course. But the remaining 16 holes are a beautiful mix of Scottish links and mountain meadow holes. #3 is a blind dogleg right par 4 protected by an old Lodgepole Pine sitting in the front, right sand trap.

An exciting shot from an elevated tee on #4 drops you to the meadow for the remainder of the front nine. #5 plays 190 yds from the tips (blue tees) and provides a glimpse of Keystone Ranch's history with the weathered old barns and ranch equipment backing this shallow green.

#9 is an exciting par 4 with a heavy dose of risk/reward opportunities for those daring to carry a large pond and a marshland inlet from an elevated tee.

The front nine has 29 bunkers while the back has a staggering 41. #10 throws you into these challenges. It's a long par 4 and the number 1 handicap hole. You'll learn that most balls break away from Westridge (on your east) toward the west and down the valley toward Buffalo Mountain and the Gore Range.....regardless of what you think you read.

#18 is a classic finishing par 5 with a required carry over water and marshland off the tee to a fairway skirting the large pond. See marble slab diagram of The Ranch Course or pull up the scorecard and diagram at www.keystoneresort.com . Keystone's Stay and Play is a great deal for the perfect sampling of Rocky Mountain golf, fishing, hiking, biking and dining. And the air is cool, fresh and clean. Check it out.

Beautiful mountain golf with great conditions.

I've played Keystone Ranch several times. Following a long winter and a very wet Spring including a 2' May snowfall both Keystone courses are in the best shape ever this summer. Some improvements have been made to the tee boxes for this season and the blue tees are a bit more foregiving than in the past.

Great Mountain Course

This is my favorite course in the area! It's better then the Raven, as well as, the sister River Course. The Ranch is definitely a players course and makes you think on every shot. It is a great summer play to beat the heat of the city!

Unexpexted Good Course

I was not expecting as good of golf course as it turned out to be! I think there is one hole I didn't like, all the others were great. The course has a little of everything.
