About Sun Valley Golf Courses
* Trail Creek is one of Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Resort Courses” in North America.  Consistently delivering enjoyable and challenging rounds for golfers of all abilities, the Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed traditional alpine layout features a full complement of stream carries and ominous bunkers well positioned to catch errant shots.  Crystal blue skies and majestic views of the surrounding mountains throughout the 18-hole, 6,968-yard par-72 course also keep golfers returning.

* White Clouds opened in 2008 to rave reviews.  In contrast to Trail Creek, the nine-hole, 3,605-yard, par-36 course of alpine-links style tests golfers’ mettles with sand trap shots, side-hill lies, risk-reward decision-making and blind shots – not to mention the 637-yard, par-5 No. 5 hole.  Adding to the drama, White Clouds is perched at 6,000 feet for stunning, 360-degree views of Pioneer, Boulder and Smokey mountains. Ernest Hemingway’s house can be seen along golfers’ journeys.

The course also overlooks the 58,000-square-foot Sun Valley Club that is open to the public with a restaurant, bar, wrap-around terraces, pro shop, locker rooms, club storage, club rental and indoor golf simulators.  A new 25-acre, state-of-the-art practice facility, the wildly popular 18-hole Sawtooth Putting Course and PGA instruction augment golfers’ memorable experiences.

* Elkhorn was created in 1974 by the famous father-son design team of Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Robert Trent Jones, Jr.  After an extensive renovation in 2004, the club re-opened as private.  Upon Sun Valley’s acquisition last July, members as well as resort and select other guests enjoy the large, undulating greens, a front nine renowned for its hills and a back nine for water hazards on eight holes.  Despite its 7,214 yards from the championship tees and more than 100 sand traps and bunkers, the par 72 Elkhorn provides the perfect blend of bark and benevolence for experienced and novice golfers, respectively.  An upscale, 16,000-square-foot clubhouse boasts a restaurant and bar with patio seating and large TVs for game-day cheer as well as relaxation.
