A Game of Golf on Cloud Nine

When standing atop the White Clouds, your eye captures a 360-degree wrap-around view of the Wood River Valley encompassing Bald Mountain, Dollar Mountain, the Pioneer Mountains, Angel's Perch, Devil's Bedstead and the home of Ernest Hemingway. Approaching the 5th tee box, golfers first notice Sun Valley Resort owner's words inscribed in a stone marker, "This is not all about golf."

These few words commemorate his vision when he dedicated this 135-acre parcel of priceless ridge top for Sun Valley Resort's newest nine holes.

The White Clouds at once becomes a mysterious challenge full of intrigue and complements the Trail Creek Course by presenting contrasting play with more sand trap shots, side-hill lies, risk reward and blind shots.

Pro Tips

On this long downhill par 4, tee shots stay in the air forever, but need to favor the right side of the fairway due to a severely sloped fairway. The second shot plays downhill and should also favor the right side of this large undulating green. Avoid the deep bunkers and fallout area left of this green.
