Golfing destinations

If you like golf, you’ll love Sheridan and its four accessible golf courses, each offering a unique day on the greens.

 

The Powder Horn

The Powder Horn is often rated the number one course in the state, depending on which golf magazine you read or friend you listen to. It’s been named Golf Digest’s Best Wyoming Golf Course to Play, Golfweek’s Best Residential Golf Course, Golfweek’s Top 100 Modern Golf Course and Wyoming’s #1 course among other honors.

In 2011, it was the host course and facility for one of the top amateur tournaments for women, the Women’s Trans National Championship. Top players from all over the world and top U.S. college programs competed.

The Powder Horn features three distinctly different nine-hole courses, a 30,000 square foot clubhouse, an award-winning pro shop, convention facilities, tennis courts, a fitness facility, private locker rooms, nature trails and trout ponds. That’s just the outside.

Inside, there’s Remington’s, a celebrated, award-winning restaurant and The Cowboy Bar. The Powder Horn is also a designated National Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and attracts a variety of wildlife.

The Powder Horn was developed by Homer A. Scott Jr., who has lived most of his life in Wyoming and is a friendly and familiar presence on the course and in the clubhouse. The Powder Horn sold its first home site and opened the golf course for play two years later. The Scott family is active in the courses’ management and the 900 acres which is about 5 miles south of Sheridan near Big Horn.
