Few people in the world have more money than the Huntsman’s, yet Jon chose to stay true to his Idaho roots and built the Western retreat in Driggs, ID rather than in famed Jackson Hole, WY a mere 35 miles away. David McLay Kidd was given an unconstrained budget and open canvas to transform a large marsh area into a highly acclaimed links course in the shadows of the Teton mountains. Four million cubic yards of earth were moved during the project which was facilitated by the endless supply of available sand from the nearby dunes in St. Anthony. The result is a undulated property boasting 153 bunkers, crystal clear water, and huge fairways/green that play firm and fast. It is one of the finest links experiences off the coast you can find.
