Golf at Teton Springs Resort and the Headwaters Golf Club

At Teton Springs, green grass has poked through the moisture rich earth and the trees have sprout. The creeks are bulging and the whitewater rafts are out of storage. I’m so happy! This means a new and dynamic summer is here for everyone to enjoy, both the residents who call the Teton Valley home, and for all the visitors who come to play and stay with us over the next 3 months. Soon, we all will be playing outside and constantly wondering – what to do – what to do – what to do next!

The late Byron Nelson, one of golf’s most legendary professionals, and also one of the nicest men you’ll ever meet (I’ve had the pleasure), designed the Headwaters Course (actually two at Teton Springs, there’s a fun par 3 course here too). You will often see the term “award-winning” in the same sentence with Headwaters and it’s easy to understand why. This course is simply gorgeous and set in Teton Valley’s most spectacular landscape. It also appeals to golfers of all ability levels with its five sets of dedicated tee markers. So, whether you’re a scratch golfer, or a duffer like me, the joy is the same when playing Headwaters. There’s also an amazing pro staff standing at attention and ready to help get the kinks out of your swing, or, get you started with the basics. Matt and his staff will even play the course with you as part of the instruction. It’s relaxed and ever so pleasant at this facility; you’ll learn fast.

All golfers know that the key element to success in this game is keeping your head down and watching that silly white ball. Easier said than done when all you want to do on this course is take in the sights and sounds that surround you in virtually every direction; the lakes, the mountains and especially the resident bald eagle who often hangs on the 7th hole. It’s definitely not easy keeping your head down on this course.

Play one of the best courses in the Rocky Mountains. Trust me!

    The size of the diamond is another great bartering point. Many people thing “big is good”, and that’s okay, if you can afford it. Bear in mind, one large diamond is significantly more expensive (because it is more rare) than several smaller diamonds. You can look to a multi-stone ring to save some dollars and still get a dazzling ring. On the other hand, if one large diamond is what you prefer, try to get a diamond that doesn’t fall within the full carat mark. Diamonds become significantly more expensive as they reach full carat marks. For example, opting for a 1.90 carat ring versus a 2.00 carat ring will grant you great savings, and the difference is size is so minimal that no one could notice the difference. You can also consider getting a cut other than the traditional round cut
