Liked It

Played two loops of the nine hole layout while on vacation in Ketchum. Walked on as a single at around 8:30 with no wait. Played with different groups each nine.

Course conditions were pretty good with nice fairways and playable rough. The greens had a couple bare patches, but rolled well at a consistent speed.

Pace of play was good at around 4:30. Staff was low key. Only quibble was my cart running out of juice after 14 holes. Was able to get a replacement on the 15th tee.

Skip this one

The most over priced and poorly kept golf course in the state. $50 for a round of 9 holes, add $10 to that for the cart. The greens are horrible, lots of bare spots, you can't really putt on them, it's more like playing Plinko. Staff attitude is very bad, if they're not sitting on a cart below the clubhouse glued to their cell phone, they're out on the course yelling at someone on the next hole over.

If i were you i'd drive an hour to play a well kept 9 hole course, or if your up for beautiful 18 holes go into Sun Valley and play Trail Creek, or play 9 on White Cloud.

Or you can play this one just to see if it's really as bad as my experience, but don't say i didn't warn you.

First Time Playing

Fun relaxing round

My wife and I recently played Bigwood Golf Course in Ketchum, ID for the first time. We elected to only play nine holes and walk the course. My wife rented a Clickgear 3-wheel push cart ($3 for 9-holes). The day we played there was only one staff member working the pro shop, he was very friendly and helpful by giving us an overview of the course, restroom locations, and assisting with picking out a push cart. He even sent us out early ahead of a threesome. By the third hole we were one full hole ahead of the threesome and only saw them on the 9th hole (We even let a single play through on the 7th hole). We really enjoyed the course, it was an easy walking course with some minor elevation changes. The holes were straight forward with great views of the Bald mountain. The tee boxes, fairways, bunkers, and greens were in good condition. The bunkers were not too penal and the sand was consistent. The greens speed from hole to hole were consistent and moderately quick. Overall, a fun course, friendly staff, good conditions, nice walking course, and great pace of play for 9-holes (1 hour and 50 min).

Overpriced Muni

I went to play nine at a course next to where I was staying. When I went to pay, it was $50 for nine and the guy in the clubhouse explained it was supply and demand. He suggested that I buy a water since there was none on the course nor a bathroom. He also said that the course had been sold recently. It could really be a nice nine hole course, but is run down and just generally not kept up. It has some challenging holes, but again is run down. Hopefully somebody will spend some money on it in the future. It's worth $10-$15 walking nine.
