Jackson Hole is a vibrant community set at the gateway to Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. Sitting in the shadows of the jagged Grand Teton Mountain Range, Jackson Hole spans a total 4,214 square miles of water and glacier carved earth. The beauty of the Teton skyline jutting out of the flat expanse of the Snake River Valley is one of the most familiar images in the American West. The Tetons have become the quintessential representation of what all mountains should look like, mountains of the imagination. Sitting at the base of these storied peaks is the Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club.
When the Club opened in 1965 the population of Jackson Hole was 4,629. The majority of these Teton County residents were hard working blue-collar laborers. Local industry was spread between ranching, agriculture, construction, retail trade, and recreational services. The median household income was $9,667 and the median price per home was $27,800. It was during these years that locals began realizing the potential of the region as a recreational paradise for visitors from around the globe. The Jackson Hole tourism industry was in the midst of consecutive record years and local knowledge became a sought after commodity. Entrepreneurs began organizing businesses that offered guided recreational options such as skiing, white water rafting, mountaineering, hunting, horseback riding, fishing, and camping. One local visionary built a golf club…
After founding the Jackson Hole Ski Corp, and in the midst of building the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the legendary Paul McCollister and his partners became interested in developing Jackson Hole’s first golf course. They determined the course should be located out in the valley allowing the most spectacular views. Just North of the town of Jackson and with 360-degree views of the Teton, Snake, and Gros Ventre Mountain Ranges, the Karns Ranch was the ideal location for a golf course. Bordered by the Gros Ventre River to the East and the Snake River to the West, both merging one-mile South of the property, the land was naturally irrigated and fertile, allowing cottonwoods, aspens, and spruces to thrive in an otherwise desert like plain.
