Fly Rods and Golf Clubs

Fly Rods and Golf Clubs – Spring is in the air and so are the deals!

O.K. we have finally hung up the boards for the season. Granted, some local residents are so distraught over the ski season being over they can barely get out of bed in the morning. But for many of us at Teton Springs Resort, seeing the signs of spring everywhere is something to truly celebrate; we couldn’t be happier. Mother geese on our property have taken over their familiar birthing spots and any day now some of us will actually see the sweetest neon green (or are they actually yellow?) goslings follow mom, flee the nest and head for more secure cover. The hawks are flying with wild abandon and grass is feverishly pushing up thru the water enriched ground. Ah spring.

Fly Fishing In Idaho and Wyoming – Best in the US

One of the best things about visiting Teton Valley is you can fish all year long. There’s always a regional river open, or sections at least, and some of the best trout catching days are when you’re forced to wear funny looking gloves with the fingers poking thru. However, spending time on the water is always worth the effort no matter what time of year. Fly fishing is virtually the only sport I know of that when you’re fly fishing, all you think about is fly fishing. Talk about a true reprieves from the “real” world. That said, I believe it’s critical that everyone learn to fly fish for their own mental health.

Fly Fishing at its Best

The best thing about booking a stay at Teton Springs this time of year is you practically have the rivers all to yourself and we know the fish are always feeding on something. The nice folks at Teton Springs will set you up in a deluxe lodge room, or suite, at some crazy spring rate and will even share the scoop on which bugs are feeding on the Teton or South Fork of the Snake. You’ll reach the Teton before your morning cup of coffee is gulped and the Fly Fishing on the South Fork of the Snake River is of course legendary among fly fishermen everywhere. It’s big water, filled with even bigger fish. Always best to take an expert guide along for this ride. But hey, don’t take my word for it, check out the video!

Relax at Teton Springs after Fishing or Golf

The Guest Service staff at Teton Springs will also tell you about the incredible Spring offer for accommodations and a guided fishing trip on the world famous Henry’s Fork where the bug of choice will be the coveted salmon fly. The price is amazing, and remember, you won’t find this doozy offer on their web site web but you can check out the digs.

Simply Put – A Beautiful Golf Course in the Teton Valley

Golf is the other sport that many of us live for and news that the Headwaters Club at Teton Springs is opening April 25th is music to our ears. Another year when the clubs come out of the bag early at Headwaters; you gotta love it! I know anxious guests do; they’ve been calling for weeks to book the Spring Stay & Stay Package. Who could blame them; there’s never a more affordable time to play Headwaters, which in my humble opinion, is the best golf course in all of eastern Idaho.

Stay and Play Golfing Packages

If a summer trip to Teton Valley is more in order for your next vacation, don’t worry, the fishing only gets better with each passing day. We’ll be sure to leave a few of the big browns for ya!

What Off Season – Birdies and Trout

What off Season? Birdies on Headwaters Course & monster trout on the Henry’s Fork!

Some folks may refer to this time of year as the “off season.” Most of the regional ski resorts have closed or are getting pretty close to hitting the off switch. The ever present shuttle buses carting anxious skiers from Jackson Hole to Teton Valley are mothballed until the snow flies again next winter.

There’s still plenty of snow at Grand Targhee, but of late it’s the buffed out groomed runs and high altitude deck parties filled with music and the aroma of sizzling burgers that are the main attraction.

The days of the heavenly powder face shots are more or less behind us.

Golfing the 18 Hole Award Winning Course – Golfing Stay and Play Packages

Who cares what’s behind us; it’s what’s ahead that is always the most exciting and now we’re talking golf & fishing. Oh boy! That’s why there’s no such thing as “off season” at Teton Springs Resort. The Headwaters Golf Club maintenance crew is out in full force evaluating just how quickly they can set up the tee boxes on this 18 hole award-winning course. The opening of the Byron Nelson short course at Teton Springs will happen even sooner.

The privilege to play both of these private courses, at a discounted rate I may add, are yours for the taking when you book hotel and golf packages at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa.

That’s always the case at this most gracious resort. But this spring they’ve gone crazy -they have a special that’s the absolute best offer of the season and includes a night in their deluxe lodge room, and a day of golf, plus…… plus……..

Check it out; it’s valid from May 1 – May 25. So dust off the sticks; that’s right around the corner, check out our wonderful Spring Packages for Golfing!

Relax at the Stillwaters Spa and Salon

April is also bonus month at the resort’s Stillwaters Spa & Salon and the “90 for 60″ is back. Book a 60 minute massage and they massage those winter weary bones an extra 30 minutes for free!

 

Fly Fishing  – Waders – Good Times with Friends

Pteronarcys you say… That means one thing, salmon fly, and BIG TROUT LOVE SALMON FLIES!

The other reason you gotta love the not so off “off-season,” is the chance to plant your feet firmly in the waders once again. The folks at Teton Springs have been booking summer fishing packages for months; the serious anglers are always too anxious to wait.

Now there’s a new offering on the table, fly fishing trips to the world renowned Henry’s Fork for the coveted salmon fly hatch.

These guided fly fishing trips with Teton Springs Lodge partner WorldCast are happening May 1 thru May 31. Grab a bunch of buddies and head to Idaho but you’ll need to call Teton Springs Guest Services to book this one. This package is even too hot for the web!

Spring in the Tetons and Summer Fun

SPRING IN THE TETONS THIS YEAR MEANS AN EXTRA DOSE OF SUMMER FUN!

O.K. It’s not quite summer in our Yellowstone-Teton territory but you sure could have fooled me! Everything is turning on ahead of schedule this year. The amazing Headwaters Golf Club at Teton Springs Resort unveiled the manicured fairways for the many anxious golfers in mid April, a whole month early. The aspens are just about in full bloom, mountain bike tires are inflated and boats are out of dry dock and heading over to Palisades Lake. Fly fishermen are particularly ecstatic given the early dry fly hatches on the nearby South Fork of the Snake and the coveted salmon fly has been spotted on the world-renowned Henry’s Fork River. This warm spring has even the bugs confused. The humming birds’ journey from their winter home is over, arriving a few weeks early to their familiar feeders in Teton Valley. It can’t possibly still be May right?! To have this much fun before Memorial Day, the official start of summer, is absolutely kooky but non-the-less something to be
savored. Fly fishing in the Jackson Hole and Teton area is looking GREAT!

There are so many reasons to celebrate a terrific spring and early summer like we’re enjoying this year. Jackson Hole is a mere 25 minutes away from Teton Springs and you’ll have this authentic western town center virtually all to yourself. Shop and eat at your leisure, and check out the numerous world-class art galleries that dot the iconic town square. Most importantly, don’t forget a stop at the National Museum of Wildlife Art situated directly across from the National Elk Refuge right outside of Jackson. This true Wyoming gem is sure to inspire and features more than 550 artists, giving visitors a detailed study in the history of wildlife through a staggering array of American paintings and sculpture. Not to mention, this museum just celebrated its 25th birthday. Now you’re ready to head to our national parks!

Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks

This time of year Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are particularly enticing and it’s a safe bet to say you may actually see more animals than cars heading into these national treasures. Baby bison, elk, mule deer and the hottest ticket in town, mother grizzlies with their young, are also taking in these delightful spring days with utter abandon. Wildlife is in full view everywhere in both Grand Tetons and Yellowstone Parks and the spectacular critters aren’t nearly as cautions this time of year so close viewing is possible. More good news – a seven-day Park Pass is on us! With an extra day for exploring thrown in this Memorial Day Weekend, I would book now! Check out all our Summer Packages at Teton Springs Lodge!

Back at Teton Springs lodge & Spa, you’ll be delightfully exhausted but a relaxing Happy Hour and dinner in the redesigned Headwaters Grille will definitely take the edge off (their recent Happy Hour elk brats were killer!)

Beautiful Outdoor Pool, Hot Tubs, Fountains & Scenery

The pool at the Headwaters Club is another opening early saga so lodging guests will relish a dip in the heated pool and a relaxing afternoon getting rid of that pasty winter white complexion at the pools sunning decks. There’s also nothing that puts you in the vacation mode faster than a poolside lunch. It feels delightfully decadent and the Splash Café at Teton Springs is there to accommodate.

I love this time of year at Teton Springs! The offers are plentiful for a Stay and Play golf special with re-round deals galore. You could just end up playing golf all day long and well into the night. http://www.tetonspringslodge.com/Packages/Summer-Packages.aspx

But, if you need a break from the links, there’s plenty of other things to do while waiting for the full slate of summer activities in this region to kick in. My favorite is the "90 for 60" at the Stillwaters Spa & Salon. These therapists are good – so good, you’ll almost feel guilty getting a 90 minute Swedish or Deep Tissue Massage and only paying the 60 minute price (now through May 31 @ $115).

With body parts now perfectly aligned, you’re ready to play a leisure game of tennis, tone those muscles at the fitness center, and maybe get the rust out of your fly casting technique with practice on one of the resort’s stocked ponds.

NEW! THE CADDIS LAKE event site – While strolling the grounds at Teton Springs you also can’t help but notice a flurry of activity going on adjacent to the Lodge. Right now it looks simply like a beautiful deck overlooking the 10th hole of the Headwaters Course. That’s true, but this site will soon be transformed into a summer events center of sorts. If you have ever been to the resort during the summer months, you would have noticed our large tent set up on the grassy landscaped area in front of the lodge & spa. It was a pleasant enough location but did block the view of the mountains while you were getting your locks shortened or having a manicure in the salon. Now with the move to its new home, hopefully by Memorial Day, guests can take in the glorious western sunsets, catch the resident eagle perched nearby, or watch the anxious angler try to lure that illusive trout from Caddis Lake – all from this special place. So, if you know
of anyone getting married, you won’t find a more romantic setting to say "I Do" and what a inspiring place to hold just about any event, company retreat, or the like. The views are staggering, the cost is not. (DECK VIEW PICTURE HERE)

Spring is suddenly the "high season" in terms of fun things to do in the Tetons but it’s also the most affordable time to come. Seems crazy – seems like a must!
