Meeting on the green can mean something different for everyone. Here, it means meeting at the base of a mountain with the natural sounds of swaying cottonwoods and rushing river enveloping you. The Snake River meanders along the course and millions of acres of national forest stretch into the distance. Hours can be lost here; swings honed. Yet why does it feel like no time has passed at all? Sometimes in places of extreme beauty we feel a touch of magic and are transported to a timeless place.
A TOM WEISKOPF DESIGNED COURSE
World famous golf course designer Tom Weiskopf approached the Snake River Sporting Club the way his boutique firm has approached creating some of the finest courses in Scotland, South Africa, and the Caribbean. He paid painstaking attention to the natural swale of the land, honoring the porous border with the wilderness in every tee and fairway. Ranked the #1 private golf course in Wyoming for 2015 – 2018 by Golf Digest, with Architectural Digest’s #1 Clubhouse in Wyoming, the Club is matchless, just like its setting.
