GOLFING IN SUMMIT COUNTY

The time is now.  

Dust off those clubs and get out to the driving range. Summit county golf season is in “full swing”.

 

OPEN – The Raven Golf Course at Three PeaksRavenLogo
The challenging, but eminently playable Tom Lehman and Hurdzan/Fry golf course design, features lush rolling fairways and immaculate greens surrounded by towering stands of pine and aspen, snow-capped 13,000-foot peaks, crystal clear creeks and trout filled lakes.

 

OPEN – The River Course, KeystoneKeystoneLogo
This par-71, Hurdzan-Fry course brings an element of drama to your game. The par-35 front nine is oriented around the path of the Snake River and the par-36 back nine winds through a lodgepole pine forest. Impressive elevation changes, variable bunkers, water hazards, and five sets of tees on each hole combine to challenge golfers of all abilities. The 16th hole features a 194-foot elevation drop from tee to green and the scenic 18th hole offers 12 bunkers and spectacular views of Lake Dillon.

 

 

OPEN – Breckenridge Golf ClubBreckGolfLogo
The Town of Breckenridge can boast that it is the only municipality in the world to own 27-holes of Jack Nicklaus designed golf. The 27-championship holes of golf are situated in a beautiful mountain valley at an elevation of 9324′. At this elevation, the golf ball flies farther and straighter than at lower elevations, as there is less air resistance. The air not only allows you to hit the ball farther, but also offers temperatures that make you forget about the heat of the summer.
