Keystone Ranch Golf Course is a Resort 36 hole golf facility located in Keystone, Colorado. The facility has two 18-hole championship golf courses. They are The Ranch Course and The River Course.
Ranch Golf Course first opened for play in 1980. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
The Ranch Course, which is part of the Keystone Resort, is located at 9,300 feet above sea level, making it the second highest course in the U.S. The course was built in one of Colorado's most picturesque mountain valleys, so expect the impressive peaks that surround the course to add to its beauty. Some holes are lined by pine trees, while others were designed to play through sage meadows. Water hazards (most notably a nine-acre lake) come into play on seven holes.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,090 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,582 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 18, a par-5 that plays to 589 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 12, a par-3 that plays to 171 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 6, a 564 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at the Ranch Golf Course is # 12, the 171 yard par-3.

Fairways were in great shape, rough a little unfair for anyone, needed to be cut badly especially with the marshall's focus on fast play. Marshall was kind of a dick, wanting our group to pick up the pace even though we were less than a hole behind the group in front of us and two in front of the group behind. Have no idea where he thought we'd go. Now for the kicker, some of the WORST greens I have seen anywhere this year, dry, dead spots, rutty and just plain crappy. No excuse for them being that horrible this time of year. Other area courses had fantastic greens. Would call this about a $50 track at tops in the shape it's in right now. Starter was great.

Fun course with friendly layout from both men's tee's. Staff was friendly for the most part as well. The conditions were really wet when I played due to recent rain storms, but still above average condition.

A wonderful course in the Colorado Rockies. Challenging to learn to read the greens. A super combo of links style and mountain style golf. The Ranch course seems to play at a faster pace than the River course.
