What an awesome 3 days of golf!!?? Red Sky Ranch's member-guest golf tournament, The Trailblazer, was an outstanding event, both on and off the golf courses.? The championship Fazio and Norman courses were in fantastic condition for this match play tourney.
The format?was 5 nine hole matches, with 13 flights of golfers based on handicap, w/ each flight consisting of approx. 6 teams.? For each hole your team won, you recieved 1 point, for each halved hole, 0.5 pts. and 0 pts. for a loss respectively.? The highest cumulative point total determined the flight winners, and each winning team then advanced to the Shoot-out.? The Shoot-out was a 3 hole alternating shot playoff (scotch format), with the top 3 teams advancing to the final.
The Vail Valley will?now see a new planned development in Wolcott.? For generations a sleepy ranching community, Wolcott is set to be the last large (2600 acres) upper valley acreage that will see a master planned community.? Wolcott will be developed with its history as?a factor, an important factor for the Jouflas families that have owned this land for decades.
The plans are in their infancy, but both?Eagle County and the developer, Hermes Resort Properties,?want?to do it right.? This beautiful stretch of the valley is home to Red Sky Ranch, has miles of river frontage, and acres of valley floor and alpine ranch sites.? Located just west of Edwards, Wolcott could become the new heart of the Vail Valley if built out well.
Stay tuned for more updates as this exciting project becomes more detailed and works its way through the county.
