Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis was the first 18-hole championship golf course in Teton County. It began to take shape as it is known today in 1967 when purchased by Laurence Rockefeller, who promptly hired Robert Trent Jones Jr. to rework the existing course. Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis has a long-standing membership component but is open to the public for play. The course is located approximately 6 miles north of the Town of Jackson, an area that affords some of the best views of the Tetons in the valley. However, travel to the Jackson Hole Mountain resort in the winter requires a U-shaped path over the Snake River Bridge that can place travel to the ski area in the 40-minute timeframe depending on traffic. As a counter to this point, the north-of town of location facilitates ready access to the National Parks.
