“Great trial ride, with easy horses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Nice one hour ride, they offer 2, 3, and 4 hour rides as well. The horses are well taken care of, the trail is filled with wild flowers. It has rained often in Summit County this summer, so the wild flowers are abundant. This was our third time visiting the Kestone Stables, so obviously we enjoy their stable.

I rode Hunter/Jumpers until I was 20 years old, so I would have enjoyed "a little more horse" but hey these are quiet trail horses that grandma or a 5 year old can ride. They are actually priceless, very hard to find nice quiet horses that are not in the least bit barn sour. We had a great time!

“Great hiking and mountain biking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Hiked and biked all around the Keystone Ranch trails north of Keystone Resort. Sad to see the pine beetle damage but still incredible views and scenery. Locals very cool and helpful - some resort areas can carry some arrogance. Definitely would return.

“The River Course at Keystone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We just played the River Course at Keystone and found it to be fun and challenging. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and course was in incredible shape. The golf pro and his staff were very accommodating and the grill was a great place to grab a bite afterwards. If you're in the area, it's a great golfing experience.

“Keystone Ranch Golf - very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We always play at the Keystone Ranch course every summer as we have the Colorado VIP golf book (2 for 1). Greens fees for when we visited were $125 so that is a nice savings. The course is in a very pretty valley, no sweeping vistas but nice views. They had a tournament the day were were there so things were a bit slow and with the afternoon rains we only got in 17 holes. The course is in good shape with many natural areas - forget about looking for an errant ball. Green conditions can change during the day, slow at first then way too fast, a tap sends the ball flying. Also many greens have multiple breaks, the course info cards in the cart help but greens are a challenge. The restaurant is nice and you can order a sandwich at the turn.

“Keystone Ranch Golf Course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The design of this course is of championship caliber. Which means it can play very difficult for the casual golfer. The greens are hard and almost impossible to hold and few holes allow you to run the ball up at the pin. Usually, you are coming in over traps or hazards.That makes for challenging golf in determining club selection and shot shape. That was made even more difficult the day we played by the strong, gusty winds. I don't know if it's just the weather and resulting growing conditions in the mountains, but the fairways had many bare or dead spots and the lies were very thin. It seemed you were better off in the short rough. A few greens suffered from the same conditions. But, other courses I've played in the mountains suffer some of the same conditions. We started our round at 10:30 am in 80 degree sunshine and finished in 4+ hours in 50 degrees and rain. I've played this course and experienced all 4 seasons in one round, including snow. There are some nice views and, as I mentioned earlier, the design allows for interesting holes. The price was a bit high I thought but probably within reasonable limits for a resort course.
