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!
