While Jackson Hole is known by many for its world class skiing and wondrous mountain views, those who enjoy the warm weather pastime of golf, know that it is home to some of the most beautiful and well manicured courses in the country. Although most of the courses situated in the Jackson Hole area are private clubs, several do offer public play in addition to their membership status. The incredible mountain views and western scenery make for great golf but these courses also are home to nearby equally stunning and sought after real estate.
We have gone through each course in the area, with a few on the other side of Teton Pass in Idaho and Alta, WY, to dissect what makes each course, their other amenities and surrounding real estate great, as well as providing important details for those that are interested in visiting or looking into the golf course real estate in the Jackson Hole area.

The Jackson Hole Valley, east of the Teton Range has no fully public courses; however, just on the other side of Teton Pass there are three great courses that are easily accessible from Jackson and have very reasonable greens fees.
The Targhee Village Golf Course is accessed by driving over Teton Pass and is a favorites of locals on both sides of the pass looking for a relaxed golfing experience. The course is has a wide open layout, with fairways often being separated from each other by scattered conifers. Greens fees are reasonable, with walkers paying $18 and those opting for a cart paying $29. Notably, this property recently sold, but is under covenant to remain a golf course / open space area, so play at Targhee Village Golf Course will continue!
Teton Reserve was originally designed as a private resort development center around a Hale Irwin-designed 7,426 championship course. However, the plans for Teton Reserve were thwarted by the recession beginning in 2007 and was ultimately sold off in phases to various investors. The course is now operated as a public course that is owned by the homeowner’s association of the platted development. Ownership of the surrounding real estate includes developers that are building homes both on a speculative and contracted basis. Presently, homes in the 1,500 to 2,400 SF range are noted to be offered in the $590,000 – $800,000 range. Teton Reserve is located approximately 5 miles north of Victor, ID and is an estimated 40 minute driving time from Jackson.
The Links at Teton Peaks
The Links at Teton Peaks was designed as a public course with no ties to a particular residential development. Golfers can choose between 12 and 18-hole options and choose to golf with or without a cart. The links was built as an 18-hole target golf course. Located approximately 3.5 miles east of Driggs, it can be easily accessed by driving east on Bates Road and then heading north on County Road N 4000 W. Approximately 35 miles 50 minutes from the center of Jackson. Real estate in the area is largely comprised of larger-tract private land holdings and is a mix of residential and agricultural uses.
