Golfweek magazine, in its annual rating of “America’s Best Residential Golf Courses,” announced that The Powder Horn is rated on its 2018 list of Top 100 Best Residential Golf Courses in the United States. Golfweek’s annual list compiles the top courses that embody the enduring sensibility and aesthetic of places that make people want to come back—or in the case of real estate, to buy and stay there. The results are derived from ballots submitted by Golfweek’s national team of 450 course raters, and represent a definitive list of finely designed golf within a mixed-use setting.
“We’re honored to receive this recognition from Golfweek for thirteen years running,” says General Manager Robert Kearney. “It’s a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our outstanding staff, as well as founder Homer Scott’s vision for this golf course community. We’ve had record real estate sales this year as more people discover our spectacular master-planned development at the base of the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming—which Kiplinger just named the #1 tax-friendly state in the U.S.”
The Powder Horn’s scenic, 27-hole championship golf course was designed by Dick Bailey of Dick Bailey Design in Scottsdale, Arizona. It features a wide-open front nine known as the Mountain Nine, a tightly wooded back nine named the Stag Nine, and the Eagle Nine offering a mix of meadow and creekside landscapes.
