Once the winter snow melts, avid golfers across east Idaho are anxiously waiting to hit the links. If you are a new to the area, you might be missing out on some of the best golfing in the Northwest.

Here is a list of the top three golf courses in the Yellowstone-Teton Territory area:

Pinecrest Golf Course

Pinecrest Golf Course, a beautiful 18-hole course in Idaho Falls, was voted the best municipal golf course in Idaho in 2009 by Golf Digest Magazine.

“It offers monster par-fours, a number of doglegs and tree trouble on just about every hole,” according to Turf Trends Magazine. “Pinecrest has hosted numerous state amateur championships as well as a handful of regional and national competitions over the years.”

In addition to excellent golfing, many visitors enjoy relaxing in the course’s clubhouse and the staff is professional and friendly.

Teton Lakes Golf Course

Teton Lakes Golf Course in Rexburg is a 27-hole course that offers golfers at all levels a new challenge at each tee.

“Nestled down near the lower reaches of the Henry’s Fork and a branch of the Teton River, this par-71 course offers two distinct nines,” according to Idaho Falls Magazine. “The first is a typical city-course setup—fairly easy with a mostly straightforward design. The back nine is an entirely different world. On most holes, you will have to carry or otherwise avoid the wet stuff on every shot.”

Huntsman Springs Golf Course

Huntsman Springs Golf Course in Driggs has been rated the third best golf course in Idaho in 2015-2016 by Golf Digest.

David McLay Kidd, the course designer, said “Huntsman Springs is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the smell of fresh cut grass and the feel of the eager turf beneath your feet at one the nation’s top golf courses.”

The Huntsman Springs course includes 84 acres of Kentucky Bluegrass, 64 acres of Irish Red Fescue and 48 acres of mountain water that streams through the course, according to the course’s website.
