If you have thumbed through your latest Grand Vie Magazine, you have seen what I wrote about the Snake River Sporting Club, Jackson Hole’s newest and quite frankly most fabulous new home community, be it first, second, third or whatever. I had the pleasure of jetting up there in early May — it snowed!!
Located just south of the confluence of the Snake and Hoback rivers, about 12 miles from the town of Jackson, the Snake River Sporting Club offers 800-acres of unbelievable lifestyle experience. Live and play here when it’s 110 degrees in Dallas, and just be kind enough to put all the fun on Facebook. Owner/investor Christopher Swann says it is the perfect marriage of rugged nature and authentic western lifestyle. I have already mapped the mileage to Dallas: 1309 miles. A 20 hour drive or a direct 3 hour flight on American. Or there is always private.
Lot prices are north of $850,000 and homes are $2.3 to $2.9 for turn key, Wyoming-style lodges running about $800 a square foot.
There are 68 residential lots, some with 6,200 (!) foot elevations, ranging in size from the turn-key, woods-nestled Tall Timber Cottages to a handful of 35 acre ranch estate sites with one acre building envelopes. Available next week are the Cottonwood Court Resort Homes, a unique ownership program perfect for Texans, which will have the option of participating in the club’s newly established resort hospitality program.
The Tom Weiskopf-designed championship golf course is the development’s crowning glory. Ranked by Golf Digest as the “No. 1 Golf Course in Wyoming” and “No. 2 Best New Private Course in the U.S.” in 2007, the world-class course is delicately woven among the natural terrain and along the river, offering more than 7,500 yards of stunning western landscape. Weiskopf has called this course his best work.
With the Snake River, there are miles of Blue-Ribbon fishing, attracting fly fishing enthusiasts from across the globe. If golf and world class fly-fishing are not enough to keep you busy, there are hiking trails for foot and mountain bike, beautiful equestrian facilities and trails, archery, shooting clays and skeet. There is rafting, kayaking and paddle boarding on Club waterways. Jackson Hole is one of the fastest growing art communities in America, with more than 35 galleries, including monthly tours and fabulous restaurants.
That’s just how you’ll spend your summer. A private event to unveil this property is coming up next week — email us if you’d like to learn more.
