“When asked what I feel are my greatest achievements in golf design, most expect me to say Bandon Dunes. In reality, Huntsman Springs is, to me, my greatest golf architectural achievement. We seek to take golfers on an adventure marked by nuance, subtlety, and unpredictability.” –David McLay Kidd
Kidd calls Huntsman Springs “my greatest golf architectural achievement.” Huntsman Springs delivers not just an extraordinary golf course ranked one of the top in the nation, it also offers a true experience.
With the stunning Teton Mountains as a backdrop, Huntsman Springs blends seamlessly into its native lands with the graceful contours, fishable ponds, aspen trees, willow, and Irish Links fescue. Players have a sense of vast open spaces with views in every direction.
