Ouray is fortunate to have a world-class golf course only 20 minutes north of town. Divide Ranch and Club (formerly Fairway Pines) , located just outside of Ridgway, is a championship course that was rated 4 stars by Golf Digest in 2003 as one of the best courses to play in the U.S. Also, the publication Golf For Women recognized Divide Ranch and Club as one of the top courses for female golfers.
With the magnificent views and the resident wildlife, keeping your eye on the ball is not an easy task. You may find yourself waiting for an elk or deer to clear the green before taking your approach shot.
Relaxing in the 108-degree mineral hot springs hot tubs, and relating your outstanding T-shot on the ninth hole, is the way to end a perfect day at the links.
