The Best of the Best 2003: Golf Communities – Roaring Fork Club

<< Back to Robb Report, Best of the Best

At its base, Roaring Fork Club in Basalt, Colo., is an invitation-only private club designed to appeal equally to golfers and fly fishermen. Members can purchase home lots or rustic log cabin estate homes, but many instead choose to avail themselves of the comfortable members’ cabins that are scattered throughout the 290-acre property.

Although unusual, the membership structure succeeds in attracting a homogeneous group of active families. In spring, summer, and fall, they tackle the Jack Nicklaus–designed golf course situated along the banks of the Roaring Fork River, or they take classes in fly tying before wading into the river or one of the nine stocked ponds.
