GRANBY -- The Heart of Grand County

Founded in 1905, the sleepy mountain town of Granby, Colorado offers a friendly atmosphere, great climate, and a comfortable drive from Denver.

Wildlife is abundant. Anglers catch brook, brown, cutthroat, rainbow and golden trout in the secluded serenity of the clear mountain lakes and streams.

With most of the county's main attractions, including Granby Ranch and Winter Park Ski Resorts; Rocky Mountain National Park; Grand Lake; and Hot Sulphur Springs, within a 20-mile radius of Granby you'll be perfectly based for exploring. Granby is no longer Colorado's best kept secrets; shhhh

From a hearty breakfast to get you going in the morning, to a nice dinner with a good bottle of wine, Granby has the dining options every traveler desires.

Granby is brimming with exciting activities year round

All summer long you will enjoy hiking, world-class golfing, mountain biking, boating, rafting, horseback riding, Gold Medal Waters, and trophy lake fishing on any of the lakes surrounding Granby. In Fall the star attractions are our aspen trees as they turn gold. During the winter, Granby is not short of things to do: skiing at Granby Ranch, explore our white forests on cross-county skis, snowshoes and ski-skates. Head out for adventure and spend the day snowmobiling, ice fishing, or dog sledding. Or find a quiet spot with a thermos of coffee or cocoa and your Smartphone to share the beauty around you.

Granby's 4 courses are known together as "Grand Links"

GOLF GRANBY RANCH is an 18-hole championship mountain golf course that features 7,260 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. Designed by Mike Asmundson of Nicklaus Design.

POLE CREEK GOLF COURSE is ideal for families with three 9-hole courses. The Ranch 9 and The Meadow 9 wander through lush fields, while The Ridge 9 showcases what golf pro JT Thompson calls "the most spectacular view in Colorado."

GRAND ELK is the Rocky Mountain's only Scottish-Style Heathland Golf Course. Designed using the rolling terrain and natural contours to influence shot making, it's perfectly suited for all golfers because of the five tee boxes and family tees.

GRAND LAKE GOLF COURSE borders Rocky Mountain National Park and has a variety of challenging holes with spectacular views from every tee. The course was designed by Dick Phelps, renowned golf course architect, its rolling fairways and undulating greens are surrounded by colorful native flora.
