I was looking for a reasonably priced alternative to the Jackson, Wyoming very expensive ($160+) green fees for a round of golf. This is the place to play. Hale Irwin is an unheralded golf course designer. Play this course and you will appreciate his work. This course was built as part of a now failed country club/home development on the west side of the Tetons (Idaho). It is approximately 30 minutes by car over a beautiful mountain pass from downtown Jackson. The price is less than $35 and the golf is fantastic, if you appreciate moguls and fast, breaking greens. The course lacks trees and water (minimal), but it is very challenging, particularly if the wind blows. Sand traps are abundant, including fairway traps that come into play. I played shortly after Labor Day 2012 and had the course virtually to myself. One interesting Irwin design twist is that that he configured the holes to have them oriented in equal numbers to the four points of the compass. This means that, when the wind blows (as it tends to do frequently and with force in this part of Idaho and Wyoming), you will experience the effects on the wind in every possibe direction across, with, and against your ball flight.
