Adventure awaits at 13 western Colorado courses with Rocky Mtn Golf Card
EAGLE COUNTY — It’s an annual dilemma that’s actually become a cliche — there is always someone on your holiday list who seemingly has everything.
But they won’t have a Rocky Mountain Golf Card, yet.
The new product from the new events and promotion division of Colorado Mountain News Media offers two-for-one and other discounted rates at 13 Western Slope golf courses and it goes on sale Thursday, Nov. 16. The card sells for $99 and will be valid throughout the 2018 golf season.
“If you got to all of the courses on the card, you can save up to $950 in greens fees,” said Holli Snyder, of Colorado Mountain News Media. “But it is not just a discount card, it’s also a way to experience all these great western Colorado communities.”
As she was compiling research for the Rocky Mountain Golf Card, Snyder found that recreational golfers were eager to venture out from their respective communities. For instance, her own husband started planning a trip that begins at Grand Junction, loops up to Meeker and Craig, swings over to Steamboat Springs and heads down to Glenwood Springs before dropping in on the courses of the Eagle Valley. From there he can hit the Leadville and Summit County courses.
The 13 courses that are participating in the Rocky Mountain Golf Card program are:
Eagle Ranch Golf Club, Eagle
The Ranch at Roaring Fork Golf Club, Carbondale
Raven at Three Peaks, Silverthorne
Mount Massive Golf Course, Leadville
Glenwood Springs Golf Club, Glenwood
Yampa Valley Golf Club, Craig
Vail Golf Club, Vail
Haymaker Golf Course, Steamboat Springs
Iron Bridge Golf Course, Glenwood Springs
Eagle-Vail Golf Club, Eagle-Vail
Lincoln Park Golf Course, Grand Junction
Tiara Rado Golf Course, Grand Junction
Meeker Golf Course, Meeker
The discounts include several buy one, get one rounds. Other courses will offer special pricing. Some restrictions apply. At the Eagle Ranch Golf Course, for example, the card special is $60 for 18 holes for two people prior to July 1. After that, the prime season card special with be $90 for two people.
“We are only selling a limited number of passes, so we encourage everyone who is interested to grab one before they sell out,” Snyder said.

The good news is there’s sustained snowfall predicted for areas of the mountain west. The bad news is that Colorado isn’t part of that forecast.
