Sheraton Steamboat Resort’s “Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club”
July 20th 2009 -
2009, Steamboat Springs, Colo., … Fresh from a $2.2 million renovation project, Sheraton Steamboat Resort’s Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club is ready and welcoming golfers back to the mountains this season. Rated 4.5 Stars in Golf Digests’ “Places to Play,” the Troon-managed Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club beckons golfers to see just how much farther their drives fly at altitude!

The 2008 upgrades to the course included a complete remodel of the irrigation system, new main lines, sprinkler heads and an upgraded pump station. The goal was to not only improve the overall quality of the turf, but to also reduce and conserve water with the addition of a new pump station. A new entrance to the golf course was created, more parking was added and 14 of the holes received new tee boxes.

A Robert Trent Jones II designed golf course, Rollingstone Ranch originally opened for 18-hole play in the summer of 1974. The surface consists of bentgrass/poa annua greens and bluegrass/ryegrass fairways and roughs. Sixty-six fairway and greenside sand bunkers come into play on all 18 holes, with almost 70% of them protecting the large, undulating greens. Water hazards appear throughout the course in the form of a small strategic lake on holes #8 and #9 and the scenic Fish Creek flows through six of the holes. Aged aspen and evergreen trees shape the majority of holes on this magnificent layout, enhancing this unique pristine setting. Built on a parcel in excess of one hundred fifty acres, this championship-caliber course provides the player with stunning panoramic views. While currently carrying a slope rating from the back tees consistent with the top Colorado courses, it maintains comfortable playing characteristics from the less difficult teeing areas and can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels.

With full turf coverage for generous landing areas, the Rollingstone Ranch Golf Course is an attractive alternative to some of the target course designs that other mountain golf courses offer, adding to its popularity.

Additionally, the Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club is home to the Fish Creek Grille. Fish Creek Grille serves traditional American cuisine for lunch. Golfers and non-golfers alike enjoy the breathtaking views of the beautiful golf course and charming Yampa Valley from the clubhouse’s second level outdoor patio. Lunch is served 7 days a week during golf season from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. After 3 p.m., guests can enjoy Fish Creek Grille’s happy hour and appetizer menu.
