OLD BALDY CLUB AND COMMUNITY
This scenic and peaceful locale, named after a nearby mountain, is an exclusive private club in a secluded and quiet valley surrounded by snowcapped peaks just outside the town of Saratoga in south-central Wyoming. Settled in the late 1800’s, the Town of Saratoga has been a destination with a vibrant history of western culture inviting one and all who seek the beauty of the outdoors, the arts, and the small, hometown atmosphere.
Saratoga was named after a New York health resort because of the natural hot springs found in the area. The naturally heated water is clear, odorless, and considered medicinal and people drive for hundreds of miles to take advantage of them. The magnificent Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountains attract outdoor enthusiasts who are drawn to the pristine lakes, abundant wildlife, and the North Platte River teeming with award-winning, blue ribbon trout.
Old Baldy Club offers its members and visitors a unique western experience in an elegant backdrop. Set in the grand landscape of Wyoming’s cowboy country, Old Baldy Club began as one man’s vision of a retreat where friends could gather in comfort to test their skills both on the golf course and in the trout stream. The late George Storer, founder of Old Baldy Club, found himself interested in the West as a very young man in the early 1900s. After becoming a successful businessman, Mr. Storer purchased the Oral Tikkaner Ranch east of Saratoga and added more properties until the Storer Ranches controlled about 58,000 acres.
Plans for an 18-hole golf course began around 1959 and construction commenced in the summer of 1960. The first building to be finished was the Pro Shop and the Locker Room wing, in 1963. The Clubhouse wing followed next, and by 1964 Old Baldy Club was in business.
Upon the death of George Storer in 1975, several members decided to form a corporation and purchase the Club which they did in April 1976. The tradition of excellence initiated by George Storer has been maintained and improved upon up to the present day. For over fifty years, Old Baldy Club still pays homage to its founding traditions while catering to the broad range of interests of today’s clientele. More than just a golf or fly-fishing club, Old Baldy combines a variety of outdoor activities with fine dining and superior service.
The 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Henry Hughes, a noted architect in the Rockies. The design was a high-elevation, seasonal course with tight fairways and elevated greens that would become even tighter as the thousands of trees matured. Built on the newly cleared sage brush of this high desert plains, all today’s 30-50 foot trees were planted where the “antelope roam.” For many years the antelope have generously shared their territory with the golfers, to the delight of everyone.
A tradition since it began, Old Baldy has no tee times, so you play when you like and never feel crowded. The course is known for its meticulously maintained championship quality fairways and greens and spectacular views greet players at every point on the course.
Outdoor activities are headquartered at the Tackle Shop. The number one priority is to make sure members and guests have memorable recreation opportunities, including fly-fishing, river floating, horseback riding, camping, mountain hiking and biking, wildlife viewing, court sports, swimming pool, Puppy Club, and historical and property tours.
The Wyoming Room in the clubhouse plays host to formal meals as well as major events including dinner dances, 4th of July fireworks, themed dinners, tournament celebrations, and most anything members request.
For casual dining, The Antelope Grill is the place to dine and watch others play a few holes. The Trout Lounge is an integral part of casual dining where members can meet at the bar for a beverage and meal. Each Thursday night a cookout takes place on the North Platte River. It is a western affair with a campfire, country music, and picnic style dining, plus a sheepherder’s wagon and a stage coach, not to mention the Bar.
Old Baldy Club is dedicated to providing members and guests with superb outdoor experiences and excellent service. The Club’s dedicated and professional staff assures a first-class experience with a personal touch.
“Old Baldy Club is dedicated to providing a golf course enjoyable for players of all levels of ability, unsurpassed fishing, superb food, and excellent accommodations. We will create superb course conditions while maintaining the classic traditional design and character of the golf course. We will consistently strive to offer the best fly fishing guide service and experience in the state. The golf course, clubhouse and river activities will support the social functions as well as accommodations that are compatible with the Members’ values and interests. Old Baldy Club will continue to cultivate its place in history as a sportsman’s paradise.”
