AboutWe're proud of our pioneering past — and future
The Ranch Country Club in Westminster, Colo., continues to reflect the pioneers whose appreciation for hard work and natural beauty first settled its lands more than a century ago.
Today, The Ranch is a member-owned, dynamic and charming retreat serving Colorado families with world-class sports and fitness facilities, fine dining and an array of fun events that encourage lasting friendships.
Our history is colorful and dates to February 22, 1884, when our 160-acre site was known as the Marion Land Claim, named after Joesph H. Marion. He was the young scout dispatched to find help for General George Custer’s troops — and the only member of the 210-man expedition to survive the “Last Stand” at Little Bighorn. After also escaping the cave-in of a coal mine in Leadville, Colo., Marion and his wife, Philena, looked for safer environs and decided to homestead what is today our beautiful grounds with breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains. After years of hard work, the couple received the land deed on Aug. 24, 1891.
Just as it is today, the Marions’ land — a working ranch until the 1940s — was a wonderful place for families to appreciate the value of good work, the importance of reaching for goals and the necessity of making time for friends and a whole lot of fun.
