Summer is right around the corner and the links are all returning to their famous freshly mowed lush green. Steamboat Springs has beautiful golf courses, three of which are located just minutes from our luxurious lodging around the Steamboat Ski Area and downtown Steamboat!
Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones II. This amazing course opened for 18-hole play in the summer of 1974. The course features stunning panoramic views of the lush Yampa Valley, Flat Tops Mountains, Fish Creek Canyon and the Steamboat Ski Area. Fish Creek winds majestically through seven of the holes, while abundant groves of aspen trees protect the bluegrass fairways. Seventy-two bunkers challenge golfers on the 6,902-yard course that can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels. While currently carrying a slope rating from the back tees consistent with the top Colorado courses, it maintains comfortable playing characteristics from the less difficult teeing areas and can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels. With full turf coverage for generous landing areas, the Rollingstone Ranch Golf Course is an attractive alternative to some of the target course designs that other mountain golf courses offer, adding to its popularity.
The Keith Foster-designed Haymaker Golf Course is open annually from May to October. The treeless, links-style course has been labeled an “environmental wonder.” Haymaker preserves the open space and the course itself was molded to resemble the contours of the surrounding valley and mountains. This 233 acre, city-owned public course features at least four sets of tees per hole, playing from 5,059 to 7,308 yards. It also has a substantial practice area – driving range, sand trap, chipping and putting green.
Take Your Golf To The Next Level!
