What to Expect:  Since opening in 1987, Teton Pines has been a perennial contender as Wyoming #1 course on Golf Digest’s Best in State rankings. In classic Arnold Palmer fashion, the par fives create the backbone of the course while The King utilized the stunning Teton Mountain range backdrop on the signature par three 16th hole. Water, water, and more water is the theme throughout the track with H20 being found on virtually every hole; about a dozen times located around the tee and another dozen times around the green. The intermountain west is notorious for having low slope and rating values compared to the rest of the country and Teton Pines is a perfect example. Featuring just a 131 slope is a mild figure for a course that stretches out over 7400 yards, hosts bunkers on every hole, and features almost as much water as there is fairway to contend with. Conditioning is solid but not spectacular for a course charging triple digit green fees. A modest driving range is found on the property with limited flight balls that die in mid-air to stay contained within the acreage. Jackson Hole is the heart and soul of Wyoming golf and Teton Pines is the best public access offering in the historic town, however the steep green fees are more of a reflection of the wealthy full and part-time residents then it is the quality of the golf course.
