Nestled only a short distance from downtown Jackson, 3 Creek Ranch Golf Club is a reflection on both thoughtful living and community engagement. This year marks its 10th anniversary, and ongoing success is evident in its reputation and growth. The club is closing in on its ultimate goal: to reach maximum capacity for memberships. When that happens, 3 Creek will become a fully member-owned endeavor.

Community outReach

3 Creek Ranch Golf Club has made its mark with special events that exemplify a love of Jackson Hole. Of these, the Rees Jones Invitational is a shining example. Named for the world-renowned architect who designed the 3 Creek course, this event raised $45,000 in 2014 for the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole.

Tee Off: 3 Creek’s golf course is not only enhanced by the meticulous attention paid to it, but by expansive Teton views that steal the show.

Club member Tom Holland praises this effort and much more about 3 Creek: “While we joined the club for its amenities, we quickly discovered it is the people associated with 3 Creek who motivate us to continue our membership. Folks here are driven by cause and community. You can see this in how they come together to support Bras for a Cause, St. Jude Moonlight on the Mountains, and the Rees Jones Invitational. The invitational brings us all together for a fun event to support Jackson Hole. … Events like these make a positive, collective impact. This makes 3 Creek a special place.”

World-Class Golf

The golf course at 3 Creek has been listed as the No. 1 course in Wyoming by Golf Digest multiple years in a row, and has been praised extensively by the golf industry as a whole. Director of Golf Greg Glover was named Teacher of the Year for the PGA’s Rocky Mountain section in 2014, proving that accolades extend to staff as well. The care that is taken with regard to the course is commendably obsessive, and the payoff is significant. With great attention to detail and advanced pest-management strategies, Superintendent Dan Tolson has managed to prevent establishment of a common invasive species of grass that affects ball roll on the green. It is uncommon to find a golf course free of this grass. Anyone with the good fortune to play the 3 Creek course will notice the exceptionally smooth, pure greens.

Setting the Table for Excellence

The interior of 3 Creek’s clubhouse itself is a stellar example of what can be accomplished when design finishes have been selected for both style and comfort. Spectacular views of the Teton Range and abundant mountain light dominate the great room. Within these walls, there are one-of-a-kind moments to be savored, and impeccable meals to be shared.

The culinary team has earned kudos as one of the best in Teton County, and opportunities to cater to the club members are numerous. Functions are held throughout most of the year, with meals carefully planned for each event. An outdoor living space complete with fire pits and crisp Teton vistas is often the first choice of club members for dining during the summer months.

A Feeling of Inclusion

A golf game isn’t necessary to enjoy both the services at this club and the attentive staff that has, it seems, thought of everything. Member Ellen Sanford explains, “There are so many choices that many call it ‘Camp 3 Creek’ because of the opportunities for children and adults to learn and have fun.” She further elaborates, “3 Creek has a great spirit! The atmosphere in the club is very welcoming and inclusive.”

It’s All Here: Numerous amenities distinguish the exceptional nature of 3 Creek. From clubhouse accommodations to an always-bustling event schedule, this community enjoys the best that Jackson Hole has to offer. In the summer months, aquatic facilities provide relief from the high mountain sun, while club-hosted outdoor activities bring families together. Abundant opportunities to enjoy the glory of Jackson’s winter months also prevail. Nordic skiing on the ranch allows for wildlife viewing in a serenely contemplative environment, as birds of prey, moose, and elk frequent many parts of the property. This is the sweet spot, just a short distance from downtown Jackson: nature’s majesty outside the front door paired with the trademark thoughtful attention paid to every member at 3 Creek Ranch Golf Club.

Holland echoes Sanford’s enthusiasm, “Our family is taking advantage of these great amenities every day of the year. Whether it is the pool in the summer, the workout facility in the fall, or the skiing amenities in the winter, the club has been great for our family.” Platform tennis and tennis courts, programming for kids, swimming, wildlife viewing, the Ski Club at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and Nordic skiing—among other activities—all speak to the multitude of options here.

The member-ownership milestone will only further strengthen the feeling of community and welcome at 3 Creek. When this quota has been reached, the close team that ensures an uncompromising and distinctive experience at 3 Creek Ranch Golf Club is looking forward to setting the bar even higher.
