The Board met on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021 and we’ve decided that the anticipated conditions will allow us to safely run our Golf-Trout tournament 10-12 September, 2021. Because it is over 180 days away, we are optimistic that there will be significant progress on the COVID issue. Of course, we will comply with all current guidance from the State of Colorado and Routt County at that time; even if it means canceling the tournament and refunding all monies. Regardless, if you determine that the risk factors are not right for you, we will, of course, offer refunds.

What the heck is Golf Trout ?

A busy weekend of Events

Friday, September 10

The annual Golf Trout Tournament begins Friday evening with registration, cocktail reception and buffet dinner hosted at the Catamount Ranch and Club. Following dinner, there will be bidding on private water for Saturday’s fishing event. Teams will be paired with their guide to determine equipment needs and fishing strategies for the next day.

Saturday September 11

Saturday begins with an entire day of fully guided fly fishing on some of the finest trout waters in Northwest Colorado. Teams will be scored for the most trout, biggest trout (smallest trout!), most species and for completing such tasks as catching a trout on a dry fly, nymph, and streamer.

The day closes with teams, guides, spouses and special guests assembling at Three Peaks Grill for libations, dinner and recapping of the fishing portion of the tournament. Everyone will have a chance to purchase raffle tickets and join in a silent auction to win prizes from a selection of fishing/golf/outdoor gear, art and certificates for dining, lodging and travel.

Sunday September 12

On Sunday, the teams and their guides will meet at the classic Robert Trent Jones II designed Rollingstone Ranch Golf Course in scenic Steamboat Springs. Golf is of the shotgun start, best ball format with all the traditional “opportunities” to make or lose money along the way. Mulligans will be available for purchase all three days until tee time. The weekend events conclude with the  award and prize presentations.
