Course in excellent condition...

Tee boxes in good shape, greens were picture perfect. Only slight issue was pace of play, mainly caused by golfers unable to locate their ball at the sides of the fairways due to excessive tree leaves covering the ground. Even fluorescent golf balls couldn't be found under masses of leaves. I know you can't control nature, but maybe mow/vacuum the edges before play starts for the day? Not a knock against the course, it was beautiful. Just an unfortunate effect of the season. Will play here again.

Thank you for your feedback! Our maintenance crew has been working hard this past week to clear those leaves. We know how difficult they can make a round of golf. Hope to see you out here again, soon!

Sun Valley/ Slow Play

We have played this course many times. Saturday we got there and checked in and got a cart. The roof of the cart was filled with water which leaked all over our bags and us for 3 holes until we pulled over and spent several minutes trying to get it to drain. Eventually we took a golf tee and plugged the hole to stop our bags from getting drenched. Our front nine was great. Played at our pace with no waiting or anyone behind us. When we pulled up to 10 that all changed. In front of us was a group of 4 on the green, a group of 4 in the fairway and a group of 6 playing together on the tee box and another group of 2 waiting to tee off as well. Due to this we got a rain check and left. The back nine would have taken several hours to play with this back up. So my complaint is why the course would allow a group of six the be playing together when the course was that full on the back nine. We have always been happy with the course as my rating above shows. But it is a 45 minute drive for us and to only get to play nine and leave was very disappointing. The only person working was in the club house so there was no one on the course to prevent what happened. Just disappointed that our likely last round of the year was cut in half due to poor management for the day.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We apologize that you experienced slow pace of play and a leaking cart. We will be sure to look into the cart issue.

The day you came out was a busy day for us, and we're sorry you were stuck behind some groups. We will review what happened to help prevent that in the future.

We hope to see you out here again!

Good course. Amazing views

The course is pretty open which is an obvious plus but definitely challenging. The fairways are in great shape considering it’s October and the greens were great as well. I highly recommend this course as the views are absolutely amazing.

Nice fall round

Clubhouse staff was friendly and helpful. Course was dry but greens were fantastic, especially for mid October. Great views from several spots. Worth the drive and will definitely come back.

Unable to play

Unfortunately, I had an accident on the way to the course and was not able to play. I was supposed to meet a friend who was coming from a different city. He was able to play as a single. I was not able to cancel with the course to receive a credit.

Mountainous Course

Our first time to Sun Valley, and we really enjoyed playing the course. The course is well maintained, lots of up and down so walking is not recommended. Holes are pretty close together so don't be surprised when a ball comes flying over your head while putting. Back nine holes have water obstacles but don't let it get to your head - they typically were not in the way. The par 6 was challenging but fun.

First Time Playing

Very slow play allowed but in good shape given the heat

Played yesterday for first time and got off the first tee 25 minutes after our tee time. Two foursomes we allowed to slow the play and we were on pace for a 6 hour round. The back 9 picked up some and we were able to get done in a little over 5 hours.
Its a bit of a drive but the course was in great shape. Lots of hills, fun greens, some narrow fairways but overall I liked the course. Just wish it would have played faster.
There was a beverage cart which was a plus too since you don't see many these days. Friendly staff.
