Star Valley View Golf Course is a Johnny Miller signature course. As a longtime ranch owner and frequent fisherman of Star Valley, Miller wanted to give back to Afton, the community that had been good to him over the years.
"I've been fond of the laid-back attitude and beauty of the Star Valley area for a long time. As an avid fisherman and frequent visitor to Star Valley, I wanted to design a golf course the high school kids, as well as the town residents could play and be proud to call their own," Miller explained. "It's been my passion to take projects that are, in a sense, forgotten about - be it a ranch or golf course - clean them up, and make them beautiful in their own settings."
The 18-hole course competes with neighboring courses as a beautiful and intimate getaway for residents and visitors alike. The terrain is a compact, walkable course, gently sloping at the Bridger/Teton National Forest foothills. The par 3 holes are particularly interesting. Boasting 360 degree mountain views, beautiful ponds, water features, and fairways lined by mounds, trees and shrubs characterize this compact design. The facility includes a practice green as well as a 280 yard driving range. Originally a 9-hole course with a simple design, Star Valley View Golf Course has matured into a fun but challenging facility for all to play.
Review each Hole's specifications
Downhill par 4. You can't see the fairway bunker on the right due to mounding and trees. Driving range runs parallel left of fairway.
Shortest par 3. Three bunkers guard the green. Better to miss short than long.
Uphill par 4. Six bunkers on this hole. Hitting fairways and greens will keep you out of the sand and the parking lot to the left.
Strait forward downhill par 4. Left of the fairway gives you a great angle on your appr
Slight dogleg left par 4. A ridge runs across the green may give you a tricky putt.
Uphill par 4. One of the two holes without a bunker. Keep your drive left in the fairway and be wary of the water behind the green.
Short par 3. Stay out of the long grassy mounds on the left and the bunker on the right. Hit it straight.
Downhill par 5. Blind tee shot should go between the trees on the north of the lake. Missing the green long is trouble.
Uphill par 4. Staying left off of the tee will help you avoid the greenside bunker.
Signature par 3 is Miller's favorite hole. Stay away from a pin on the left side of the green; shoot for the middle or short right.
Dogleg right par 4. A good drive goes over the scotch pine on right edge of fairway.
Downhill, dogleg left par 4. Cut the corner for a great drive or avoid the trees an aim for the middle of the fairway.
Risk reward short par 4. Water on the left, five bunkers, and a shallow green make for an easy birdie or easy bogey.
Short par 4. OB left and behind the green. It would be wise to hit an iron off the tee.
Long par 4. Two-tiered, long green, be sure to find the correct level
Uphill par 5. Good drive off the tee hugs the left fairway bunker.
Long par 3. Check the pin position because this hole can play plus or minus 40 yards.
Dogleg right par 4 virtually unchanged by Miller. Find the fairway and avoid the unforgiving mature trees.
