Sun Valley Resort (Elkhorn course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1974

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 accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.
