The River course is a gorgeous mountain golf experience that winds along the snake river on the front nine and rises to feature dramatic elevation changes on the back nine. The course opened in 2000 and was designed by Dr. Hurzdan and Dana Fry. The 18th hole is the signature hole offering a breathtaking view of Lake Dillon and the Gore Range as a backdrop.
