Course reopening April 1st

Coronavirus Update >>

If the current state of our world has taught us anything, it is that things can change very quickly.  We at the course, are paying close attention and making the best decisions we can with the information we have on a day to day basis.  That being said, we have decided to reopen the golf course April 1st and here’s why.

Over the last week we have been monitoring the state of golf on a national, statewide and local level.  We have leaned on other operators to share their experiences and information.  We have reached out to local officials for guidance with the grey area that golf courses around the country find themselves in.

There are currently no directives that require us to be closed and in fact more evidence that suggests that the recreation opportunity provided by golf is a much needed outlet for our community at this time. Not only that, but the natural space that occurs during play facilitates social distancing.

We have observed many in our community entering the course for personal recreation purposes this last week, feeling the space at the course offers a safe opportunity to get outside while complying with the 6 foot rule.  We couldn’t agree more.  It is hard to argue that we should remain closed when so many see the golf course as a the perfect space for recreation right now.  This is the very nature of the game of golf.

We have been proactive with our enhanced guest safety measures.  These, along with additional measures will be in effect and applicable to all guests.  Please see the list below.   As always, we will keep our eye on the changing environment and ask all of our guests to help us keep the course a safe and OPEN space for golf.

The Homestead will be open for grab and go breakfast burritos, hot dogs, beverages and the full take out menu will be available after 4:30.

Golf at River Valley Ranch, Aspen Golfing

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!
