The early arrival of spring in the Northern Rockies is good news for golfers. The Driving Range, as well as the Practice Putting and Chipping Greens at Sun Valley officially open for the season April 1—and, no, this is not an April Fools joke!
While the pro shop keeps getting in this season’s newest and hottest merchandise daily, Jeff Petersen, Sun Valley’s director of golf, said they are hoping to “potentially and weather permitting” open both the Trail Creek and White Clouds courses and Putting Course by mid-April.
Hole 1, Par 5
This opening par 5 requires an accurate tee shot between the fairway bunker and the trees on the left. Longer hitters can reach this green in two, but the lake on the left, the hazard on the right, and the two large greenside bunkers make it a daunting task.
