Summit County is full of amazing golf courses.  Picturesque mountain views at every hole, wildlife and massive distance off the tee for you big hitters.  Check out the top 5 spots:




1.     Breckenridge Golf Course: (Voted Top Ten Golf Course in Colorado)


Located just a few miles north of Main Street, this is the only golf course located in the Town of Breckenridge. Often included in the annual top 20 courses in Colorado and built on an old mining encampment, the Breckenridge Golf Club offers a truly unique golf experience. The course consists of three unique 9-hole courses all designed by the Jack Nicklaus Signature team. With incredible panoramic views of the Rockies at over 9,000 feet in elevation, playing a round of golf here is a must, even for casual fans of the game. 


2.     The Raven 


The Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks is touted as the best mountain golf course in Colorado and even one of the best courses in the country. Towering forests of pine and aspen frame the rolling fairways and manicured greens on this scenic layout. The crystal clear creeks and trout-filled lakes are a striking contrast to the lush green of the course and the snow-capped peaks in the distance. The golf course is known for more than its scenery though, its challenging design is a test for all skill levels. The steep-faced bunkers have deeply furrowed edges, which can be tricky but they also serve to contain tee shots that might have an increased carry because of the course’s dramatic elevations. There are also water hazards to contend with on several holes.


3.     Keystone Ranch Golf Course


The Keystone Ranch Course is not your typical mountain style course.  It almost has a linksy feel to it as it plays in an expansive mountain valley with only a few trees.  It doesn’t have big mountain drops or towering pines lining holes or much that makes you feel like a typical mountain course.  Instead the mountains surround the course offering great backdrops and scenic views in the distance.  Even though it isn’t a true mountain course, it still plays at a high elevation so your ball carries further and for the resort guest that  has a higher handicap, they will enjoy this course. 


4.     Keystone River Golf Course


This course features impressive elevation changes, variable bunkers, water hazards, and five sets of tees on each hole to challenge golfers of all abilities. The 16th hole features a 194-foot elevation drop from tee to green and the scenic 18th hole offers 12 bunkers and spectacular views of Lake Dillon. Add to that the magnificent views of snow-capped peaks and wildlife and it’s easy to see this is a golfing experience unlike any other. Keystone Golf (Keystone Ranch and River Course at Keystone) has been rated as one of the Best Golf Resorts in America by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest and have numerous other awards and accolades.


5.      Copper Creek Golf Course: 


Copper Creek Golf Course, with a starting elevation of 9,700 feet and a tee at 9,863 feet, is America’s Highest Golf Course. Designed by Pete and Perry Dye, the narrow fairways and dramatic changes of elevation make this par 69, eighteen-hole course one of Summit County’s best. Avoiding water is the name of the game on the front nine and precision through the scenic back nine is necessary to come in with a good score.
