Redstone Resort, where every hole is a photograph, opened early this year on Wednesday — nearly two weeks before opening day in previous years. The course is open and ready for use.

Normally most fairways at the Rossland golf resort would be covered in snow this time of year, but what is bad news for the ski hill is good news for golf enthusiasts.

An early season isn’t the only news for Redstone, however. Golf professional Edwin MacDonald will be taking over operations at the pro shop as well as organizing tournaments, lessons and much more.

Manager/owner Carry Fisher is excited to get a lot more use out of the event section that was created some time ago. “We built it two years ago and ran a few events as a sort of trial last year,” he said.

Things went well enough that they decide to make it a permanent addition. Fisher said he is certain it will see a lot of use and people have already been inquiring.

The area features a 30×40 foot tent, kitchen/wash area and pizza oven.

“It’s pretty unique. Especially in the summer. You can have a band set up under the gazebo while people dance or eat or have their retirement party. It’s very private and there’s not really anything like it in the area.”

Further down the road in June, the folks at Redstone will be hosting a men’s open tournament, something that has been missing from the resort for several years.

 

Topping off the improvements at Redstone this season is a new kitchen staff that will also be providing “something a little different” on Fridays and Saturdays.
