Rocky Mountain Golf Cards on sale

Staff report

Country singer Vince Gill and friend Steve Stark are all smiles after teeing off of their first hole at the Snowmass Club last summer.

The Rocky Mountain Golf Card is a great way for golfers to experience some of the best Western Slope courses during the 2018 season.

The card, a new product being offered by Colorado Mountain News Media's newspapers, offers two-for-one and other discounted rates at 13 Western Slope golf courses. The card sells for $99 and will be valid throughout 2018.

Since sales began in mid-November, Colorado Mountain News Media events manager Holli Snyder said there have been several repeated questions from individuals interested in the card.

"We thought sharing those questions and the answers would be helpful to those interested in purchasing the card," she said.

Here are the questions and answers:

Question: What does buy-one-get-one refer to? Does it mean if I buy a card my partner can play for free?

Recommended Stories For You

Answer: Yes, the card allows two to play, with one paying full price and the second person playing for free.

Q: Can I use the card more than one time at each location?

A: No, each card is good for only one discounted round per course. While we understand someone might want to play multiple times at a single course, the idea is for golfers to experience the wide range of courses in the high country.

Q: Does the buy-one-get-one deal include all 13 courses?

A: Yes, with the exception of the Eagle Ranch course which offers a discount for both golfers.

Q: Can I play one round myself one day and use the free buy-one-get-one round a different day?

A: No, free rounds must be used the same day at the same time as the paid-for round.

Q: Does the buy-one-get one rate fluctuate with the season rates at the courses?

A: Yes, the rate will reflect the daily rate at the course on the date of play.

Q: Is the card transferrable?

A: Yes. You can allow others to use the card, meaning if you buy a card and cannot use it, you can allow someone else to take advantage of the deal.

Q: If I play all the courses on the card, how much would I save?

A: If you got to all of the courses on the card, you would save as much as $950 in greens fees.
