5th, Bandon Dunes

Shooting Star Golf Club

USA, Wyoming
6 (4)
Designer: Tom Fazio
Course Opened: 2009

In Volume 3 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.

“Immediately to the south of the Teton Village ski base, Shooting Star is the new king of the Jackson courses because the developer clustered all the housing up near the village, and let Tom Fazio create his golfing landscape in the south end of the meadow, with no homes to intrude. I happened to play it on a very windy day with a storm coming over the mountains, and it was great fun in those conditions, with Fazio’s normal reticence to get in the golfer’s face with hazards serving as a welcome relief. [The par-3 6th was all the driver I could hit, from 177 yards.] Perhaps we stopped playing at the right time, as the water-laden final four holes would have made a tough finish that day…especially with the ball blowing off the greens“

Shooting Star Golf Club received a score of 7 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
