Hot Golf Course Properties in Sun Valley!

It is not a surprise to most that we have world class skiing, but some tend to forget about our summer activities, and that Sun Valley also boasts world class golfing! Sun Valley Resort was most recently recognized by Golf Digest as one of the Top 75 resort courses in North America!
With five separate golf courses spanning the valley, there are many choices for living the lifestyle.

If you prefer a smaller course, and close to Ketchum, try Bigwood Golf course for in-town golfing. Bigwood is a challenging, yet friendly 9-hole course, 6904 yards, and sponsors numerous tournaments.

This beautiful home is located in a fantastic neighborhood, off of the Bigwood golf course in Ketchum. The floor plan is very comfortable and well thought out with many custom high-end features. The tall ceilings and windows allow for plenty of natural light and give the home a grand feel. The large master is located on the first floor.

The city of Sun Valley holds three courses; Trail Creek, White Clouds and Elkhorn golf courses, with plenty of real estate right on and off the actual courses! Trail Creek, a traditional Alpine course, is 18 holes, 6,968 yards, with a par 72. The White Clouds course boasts 360 degree views of the valley and it's mountain ranges. It is 9 holes, 3605 yards and par 36. The Elkhorn golf course, redesigned in 2005, is 18 holes, 7214 yards, and par 72.

This is an incredible opportunity to own one of the very best lots on the Sun Valley Fairways. The west side of Fairway Road is considered Sun Valley's "Gold Coast" and this property is perhaps the most private and spectacular. It boasts over 400 feet of golf course frontage, is across the street from historic Proctor Mountain and has unimpeded views of Baldy and Trail Creek. The home is a classic Sun Valley home with Cherry Creek Rock fireplaces, beautiful wide plank wood floors and traditional architectural lines. View more photos and information here.

The three bedrooms on the main floor are complimented by baths with travertine floors and slab marble counters and a large soaking tub in the master. The upper level bedroom has vaulted ceilings, skylights, and private bath. Slab granite kitchen counters are complimented by high end stainless steel appliances and ample counter space. The living room and dining area enjoy vaulted ceilings, a river rock fireplace, "Fine Art" chandeliers and sconces. The expanded deck off the living room is large enough for entertaining but private enough for sunbathing. Ownership comes with membership privileges to the two Elkhorn pools, and multiple tennis courts. Nestled in the mountains and both private and quiet, this is the perfect escape!
