The golf experience at 3 Creek is focused around the championship golf course designed by world-renowned architect, Rees Jones. Known for designing, or re-designing golf courses for dozens of PGA major championships, Mr. Jones was given a blank canvas when creating 3 Creek. And like Picasso, he delivered a masterpiece. At 7700 yards from the back tees, and up to six tee boxes on every hole, the course offers an appropriate challenge for golfers of every ability level. It is no wonder that Golf Digest Magazine has named 3 Creek the #1 Course in Wyoming multiple times.

The Club at 3 Creek
The men’s member-guest, branded The Invitational, has developed a national reputation as being one of the premier member-guest events in the Rockies. The Battle at 3 Creek, a Ryder Cup-formatted tournament, is a coed event with two days of friendly competition between members. The Rees Jones Invitational is a charity event that benefits the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole. 3 Creek is proud to be a Co-Challenger of the Community Foundation's Old Bill's Fun Run each year.
Equally as impressive as the golf course is the state of the art practice facilities featuring a double-ended driving range, complete with practice bunkers and chipping greens.
Michael is a recognized leader in the golf industry with over 25 years of experience working at some of the most prominent Clubs in the country. “It seems my entire career has been in preparation to lead golf operations at The Club at 3 Creek”, said Michael. He has a reputation for being a “do-er” and a “difference maker” throughout his career. He credits his success on being a “searcher”, someone who loves to continue learning and then creating strategies to put that newfound knowledge and ideas into action. He believes the key to the hospitality industry is for himself and his staff to continually develop strong people skills and use those skills to build relationships built on credibility, integrity, and respect. He feels the best way to provide outstanding programming and the highest levels of customer service is by paying close attention to the details.
Rees Jones has established himself as the preeminent golf course designer. When it comes to creating lay-outs with architectural significance worthy of championship competition, no other designer can boast a portfolio of courses on which so many U.S. Opens, PGA Championships, Women’s U.S. Opens, Ryder Cups, and U.S. Amateurs have been played. His design and re-design portfolio includes such legendary tracks as Torrey Pines, Bethpage Black, Pinehurst #2, The Country Club, Bellerive, Hazeltine, Baltusrol, Medinah, Congressional, and Eastlake Golf Club.
