Winter Fun at River Valley Ranch!

Family Friendly Sledding Hill

When snow conditions permit, we welcome the public to enjoy our driving range sledding hill! Perfect terrain for all ages. Please park at the golf course clubhouse. Portable restroom is available in front of the golf course pro shop. Use of the sledding hill is at your own risk.

Cross Country Ski Trails

In the winter months, and when snow levels permit, our golf course superintendent will groom trails on our front nine that are free and open to the public.  Classic and skate trails are available.  Well behaved leashed dogs are welcome (please pick up after your dogs).  Please stay on groomed trails and do not enter bunkers or ski or walk on greens.

Make Time for a Round at River Valley Ranch

The picturesque course at River Valley Ranch was designed by Colorado native and golf hall of famer Jay Morrish.  His award-winning, 7328 yard, par 72, 18 hole championship public golf course in Carbondale, Colorado, is a not to be missed destination for mountain golf.  Expansive mountain views and pristine river waters flank four unique holes of play on a course set in perfect harmony with the vast natural river valley.  Our guests will be challenged by elevation changes, river and native area carries as well as challenging bunkers and firm, fast greens.  Superintendent, Chad Weaber, and his team keep the course in exceptional shape throughout the season!
