Awards roll in for the Raven

SILVERTHORNE – With the awards that have been rolling in since the Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks opened three years ago, this season’s haul is just par for the course.

The Raven was recently named Course of the Year for 2002 by the Colorado Golf Course Owner’s Association. It was the first year of the award. Then, the latest issue of Avid Golfer magazine named the Raven the best mountain course in Colorado. That was followed by the Environmental Leaders in Golf Award – formerly called the Environmental Stewardship Award – which the Raven won for the third year in a row. Much of the credit for the environmental award goes to course superintendent Brian Tanner for dealing with water, toxin and wildlife issues.

“Our staff works really hard, so it feels good to be recognized,” said Raven director of sales and marketing Dan Guinle.

These three awards are the most recent in a series of industry recognition for the course. The Raven was also named one of the top mountain courses in the country in 2001 and won honorable mention for best new course that year.

“It’s pretty much been what’s happening since day one,” Guinle said of the recognition.

The 2002 Course of the Year award was based on the quality of the course and its management, its relationship to the community and its contributions to the game of golf.

The Raven plans to open May 16.
