The Roaring Fork Club in Basalt was named one of the 10 best mountain golf courses in the October 2005 issue of The Golfer magazine.

Courses were commended for their high-alpine topography, dramatic elevation changes and spectacular scenery.

Nestled on 282 acres to either side of the Roaring Fork River, the Roaring Fork Club’s par-72, 7,312-yard Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is sculpted along the contours of the river valley. Says the club: Nicklaus’ course design incorporates a variety of classic golf experiences: traditional small greens; tight approaches,; changing elevations; fine bent-grass tees and greens; and stunning beauty.

The Roaring Fork Club is a private golf and fishing development comprised of individual cabins, lodge residences and a member’s lodge.
