The resort is implementing a contingency hole on its Trail Creek Course to enable ongoing play. The remodel includes a redesigned green, a widened and re-contoured fairway landing area off the tee, and a fairway bunker and pond-side green will be made smaller.
Starting September 14, the No. 1 hole on Sun Valley (Idaho) Resort’s Trail Creek Course will be closed for a significant remodel. The resort is implementing a contingency hole to enable a full 18-hole experience for players.
The par-5, 530-yard 1st hole will receive a redesigned green, a widened and re-contoured fairway landing area off the tee and a fairway bunker and pond-side green will be made smaller.
The scheduled completion date for the project is July 2013.
“Sun Valley is excited to begin the Trail Creek Course first-hole renovation,” said Rick Hickman, the resort’s Director of Golf. “The hole will be made more player friendly, with improved playability and conditions, and without taking a hole away from golfers, thanks to our extra hole. This is the latest in our ongoing commitment to ensure Sun Valley is a world-class golf resort and destination.”
Sun Valley offers 45 holes of golf combined on the Trail Creek, Elkhorn and White Cloud courses, in addition to a 25-acre practice facility, two clubhouses, an 18-hole putting course and many other golf amenities.
