The Links At Silvies Valley Ranch Tops Golf Digest's Best New Courses Ranking For 2018
Following its inaugural golf season, the Hankins Course and the Craddock Course at Silvies Valley Ranch have been recognized by Golf Digest as two of the top four Best New Courses of 2018. This is the first time that any property had two new courses ranked in the top five in a single year. Silvies provides an unrivaled golf experience for players of every skill level, with four golf courses – the Hankins and Craddock Courses (the first 18-hole reversible courses built by Dan Hixson), McVeigh’s Gauntlet, a stunning 7-hole challenge ridge course voted the Best New Golf Experience by GOLF Magazine, and Chief Egan, a mountain meadow 9-hole par 3 course. Silvies is already known as a swank western destination with outdoor adventures such as horseback riding, bicycle trails and pistol shooting, gourmet food and the largest scotch collection in 14 counties.
