Sun Valley Resort (Elkhorn course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Sun Valley Resort (Elkhorn course) Est. 1974

Where2Golf says: 

Sun Valley Resort is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses: the resort's signature Trail Creek layout and the Elkhorn course. Like its sibling, the Elkhorn course is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.
