Are you looking for an outstanding golf vacation experience this season?
This May 2014, The Snake River Sporting Club, a private club and residential community in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, will reopen its award-winning championship golf course. To oversee all facets of the reopening, Snake River has tapped Kali Quick as Head Golf Professional – making her the first female appointment in Teton County history. The Club has also engaged Tom Weiskopf to redesign some of the holes and add a premier short game facility, which will compliment a large practice green and range facility. With a $2 million rehabilitation underway, the 7,500-yard course will incorporate the natural landscape with a varietal design that weaves through native pines, cottonwoods and willows just yards from the famed Snake River.
