Sun Valley Resort Welcomes Golfers for 2012 Golf Season

Idaho Golf Resort Officially Opens 45 Holes of Golf This Week

(SUN VALLEY, ID) – Sun Valley Resort (, the historic mountain destination in south central Idaho, has officially opened all three of its courses for the 2012 golf season, offering guests 45 holes of play and the introduction of its Premier Unlimited Golf Package.

Favorable spring weather has created near-perfect course conditions on its Trail Creek, White Clouds and Elkhorn Golf Club layouts.  This is the first full season that Sun Valley will offer 45 holes of resort play, after acquiring the adjacent Elkhorn private club last summer.

The resort’s Unlimited package takes advantage of long summer days from June 23 to September 3, offering preferred tee times on the three courses throughout the guest’s stay, plus overnight accommodation and shuttle transfers between courses, starting at $320 per player, per night.  It includes complimentary access to the 18-hole Sawtooth Putting Course, as well.

“Word is spreading that Sun Valley’s golf offering has broadened considerably with the Elkorn addition,” says Rick Hickman, Director of Golf Operations.  “By including a championship private course experience to our popular resort play on the Trail Creek course and White Clouds alpine layout, we’ve increased the value of our golf packages for individuals and groups.”    

Golfers looking for May play can reap Early Birdie benefits with golf packages starting at $119 for golf and overnight accommodations.  All packages can be booked online via the resort’s new golf portal at  Golf season passes are also available for local play.

Via the website, golfers can also explore the variety of resort activities and amenities offered at Sun Valley, including fly fishing, skeet shooting, boating, mountain biking, fine dining and live entertainment via its outdoor amphitheater and ice shows, as well as an abundance of family activities.

The resort is accessed via nearby Friedman Memorial Airport, with direct service via Delta and Alaska Airlines from major western cities such as Salt Lake City, Seattle and Los Angeles, and via several direct flights daily into Boise Airport.

Alaska Airlines is currently offering airfare deals for golfers from select cities in Washington state directly into Friedman Memorial Airport from now through May 28, for stays from June 3 through July 31.
