The Lure

Shaping a shot between distant peaks on the horizon adds to the lure of golfing in the Tetons. The sport tends to take a backseat relative to other outdoor activities in our region, but is growing in popularity as more options become available. For visitors, the opportunity to tee it up in such a unique setting adds to the appeal of the sport.


Jackson Courses

Public access is limited to only two courses in Teton County Wyoming: Teton Pines Country Club, Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club. Each course ranks as a top facility in the state. Players are guaranteed meticulously manicured grounds, incredible vistas, and challenging layouts. Players are also guaranteed greens fees that correspond with the quality of the course.

Teton Valley Courses

Idaho’s Teton Valley has become one of the most desirable golf retreats in the past few years with new, premium championship golf courses. Noteworthy events this summer include the grand opening of Huntsman Springs as well as the 2011 Idaho Amateur Open, hosted by Headwaters Club at Teton Springs. Many golfers in Jackson drive Teton Pass to take advantage of the cheaper play offered in Teton Valley compared to Jackson.
