Wood River Valley golf courses are opening up for the 2005 season.

The Sun Valley Resort Golf Course announced plans to open Saturday, April 30. Nine holes will be open for play through Friday, May 6 for $39 for nine holes, or $58 for 18—cart included in the prices.

The valley's other 18-hole championship course—Elkhorn Golf Club—is planning to re-open after extensive renovations by July 1, head pro Shane Galles said Tuesday.
