RVR golf earns recognition

The Golf Course at River Valley Ranch has been named among the top three Golfer’s Choice: Best Public Courses for 2019 in the state of Colorado by Golf Advisor. 

Golf Advisor, an independent source for worldwide golf course rankings and information, reviewed 113 public courses in Colorado. Twenty public courses made the list with River Valley Ranch being the only local course to make the cut, finishing third behind only two front range courses.  

“We couldn’t be more proud and thankful for all of the support the course has received in our first year,” said Cunningham Golf General Manager Red Cunningham. “To see this amazing property come to life and be embraced by this community is the exact reason we took over the business of the course and the Homestead restaurant.”
