Beautiful Jacobsen Hardy course tests experienced golfers with more than 7,300 yards of classic mountain golf, it also offers family-friendly options, with youth tees on every hole and a three hole short course golf park.
CHALLENGING GOLF FOR ALL, FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Built along the site of historic Roslyn Mines No. 9, No. 10 and Tipple Hill, an impressive 120' coal tailings rise, this Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design is named in honor of the miners who precariously balanced themselves on the roped coal cars that maneuvered the steep mine shafts. Though Rope Rider challenges even the most experienced golfers with more than 7,300 yards from the tips, it also accommodates family golf vacations, with youth tees on every hole and shorter three and six-hole loops for quick sessions with the kids.

Great starting hole Par 5 with the opportunity for a good start to the round. Dogleg right with an elevated tee. An aggressive tee shot over or around the fairway bunker on the right creates an opportunity to be near the green in two.
Beautiful Par 3 with water left and large greenside bunker the right. The front half of the green slopes away from the player and may cause the ball to jump forward before settling on the putting surface.
A sporty short Par 4. A long tee sheet creates to opportunity to get near the green but may lead to a difficult short game shot off an uneven lie. A fairway wood or iron can leave an opportunity a full shot to the pin from a relatively flat lie.
A strong Par 4 playing slightly uphill. The green is divided from front to back by a ridge and it is important to be on the correct side of the ridge. A difficult hole where par will always be a good score.
A strong Par 5 with emphasis on the drive being in play. A choice has to be made at the layup to play short and right of the fairway bunker or the longer player can attempt to clear the bunker for a short third. A left hole location can be tricky with a small false front; important to carry the ball all the way to the flag.
A beautiful Par 4 that plays back toward the clubhouse and can finish a 6 hole short loop. An aggressive drive over the fairway bunkers will yield extra roll toward the green. Pay special attention to the approach shot as the back half of the green slopes away and will often not hold a shot.
The first of 3 holes to play around the historic coal tailings pile known as tipple hill. Holes 7-9 create an opportunity to play a 3 hole loop. The tee shot should favor the left hand side for the best approach. A long green so it important to check the hole location for the proper distance on approach.
A strong Par 3 with a long and narrow green from front to back. Deep bunkers guard the green and it is important to have the correct yardage to the flag as putts from below the hole will be more manageable than above.
A beautiful returning hole to the clubhouse with fairway bunkers on the left and right. The approach shot plays uphill and the green is receptive, so an extra club may be required.
A downhill Par 4 with 2 large douglass fir trees guarding the left side of the green. A kidney shaped green is guarded by deep bunkers.
A traditional risk reward Par 5. An aggressive drive down the left side will yield extra yardage toward the green. The green is protected by water right and bunkers left. The opportunity to be near the green in 2 shots is possible and will often be rewarded if you can navigate the greenside hazards.
A long and strong Par 3 when par will always be a good score. The green is divided left to right with a ridge where the back portion of the green slopes away.
Probably the toughest hole on the back nine. A picturesque hole with a view of Peoh Point in the distance. A large deep bunker guard the right side of the green.
A strong par 4 that plays slightly uphill is core golf with the 15th hole on the right. The water on the left side is hidden and ponderosa pines protect the left side on the drive. A straightforward green awaits a well placed approach.
Hole #15 plays a bit shorter than its yardage with the fairway sloping downhill from the fairway bunkers. The green in slightly elevated with no greenside bunkers and an approach shot is required toward the center of the green as shots landing near the edges can often roll off.
A short par 3 with a precise approach required. The front half of the green slopes left to right and will be difficult to hold. The back half of the green slopes away. The green is guarded by a deep bunker left and a small bunker right.
A strong 3 shot Par 5. A precise tee shot is required with forest to the right and hazard left. The layup is straightforward and should favor the left. The green is protected by bunkers short and right and will be receptive to a well struck shot.
Hold on to that lead if you can!! A beautiful and difficult final hole with water on the right from tee to green. A tee shot to the left side of the fairway and away from the water is recommended. The green is shallow and slightly elevated. A great finishing hole.
