Benefits of Golf

Nestled at the base of M. Sopris, less than a mile away, River Valley Ranch Golf Club has a diverse layout that stretches from the rolling valley floor to the banks of the Crystal River. The natural contour ad wetlands were fully utilized to create a challenging and scenic golf course. Clients can take in breathtaking views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains. Although it is important to have some form of exercise in treatment, not every exercise is appropriate for everyone.

Playing golf provides the key benefits that are associated with exercise, but also offers an element of relaxation that may not be available in other forms of exercise. The gentle movements are easier for individuals who may have damaged the physical body due to substance abuse.
