Plan Your Summer Golf Outing at Keystone Resort

If you are looking for an unforgettable golf trip this Spring or Summer, look no further than Keystone Resort, Colorado.  There are two amazing golf courses at Keystone Resort, just a few miles apart in the rolling hills surrounding Keystone.  Staying at Keystone, you will also have access to a number of other courses in Summit County, no more than 10 to 20 minutes in the car, including The Raven at Three Peaks, The Town of Breckenridge Golf Course and Copper Mountain Golf. Drive a little further down I-70 and you will reach multiple courses in the Vail and Beaver Creek/Edwards/Avon areas. The Keystone Ranch and Keystone River Courses both offer amazing mountain views and spectacularly maintained, challenging courses. There is no question that you'll love to tee off at Keystone Resort.  The golf season in the Rockies typically kicks off in mid to late May and runs until as late as September or early October, depending on the weather.  Weather can change quickly, so always come prepared with extra layers, gloves, and sunscreen.

Keystone Resort offers golfers an experience they won't have anywhere else with its beautiful mountain scenery and high altitude game.  Remember that both courses require a collared shirt and non-metal spiked shoes.  As always don't forget the sunscreen, because Colorado gets on average 300 days of sunshine a year!
