In a Scenic Wyoming Valley with Mountains Nearby, The Powder Horn Boasts Elegant Homes, 27 Holes of Golf, a Large Clubhouse, a Lively Social Calendar and More
Just to the south of Sheridan in northern Wyoming, The Powder Horn is an upscale golf development in a scenic valley. The Big Horn Mountains loom in the distance, and antelope and elk meander in nearby meadows. The topaz sky stretches as far as the eye can see.
The Powder Horn is popular with baby boomers and stretches across 900 acres. Elegant patio homes, cottages and custom homes sit on large, manicured lots, and square footage ranges from approximatley 1,500 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet. Every property has sweeping mountain, valley or golf course views.
The community blends nicely into the surrounding landscape, so much so that it has been designated a National Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. This means that the development has a healthy respect for the environment and has won certificates of achievement in six categories, including Environmental Planning and Wildlife and Habitat Management.
Home prices begin in the low-$300,000s and top out at more than one million dollars. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they are subject to change.
The award-winning 27-hole championship golf course features three nine hole courses, five different tee boxes, two practice facilities, a pro shop and an active women's golf association. The members-only 30,000 square foot clubhouse has a restaurant, a bar, a fitness center, a spa and a pool.
Residents also enjoy two tennis courts and an active tennis community with social events and tournaments. A tennis pro is on site, and lessons are available. Horseback riding trails, trout-stocked ponds, nearby lakes and abundant wildlife all contribute to the quality of life found at The Powder Horn.

Wyoming's territorial legislature granted women the right to vote in 1869. It was the first government entity in the world to recognize "female sufferage." The Equality State entered the Union about 21 years later on July 10, 1890.
The 10th largest state by area, Wyoming is one of the country's smallest by population. The mean elevation is 6,700 feet above above sea level. The state can be divided by three distinct land areas. The Great Plains to the east are characterized by short grass, cottonwoods, and shrubs. Devils Tower National Monument rises out of this prairie. Ranges within Wyomings include the Big Horns and the Tetons. Ranges are separated by high plateaus known as the Intermontane Basins.
Depending on elevation, Wyoming can have cold winters and warm summers. Rain is rare. Snowfall in some mountain areas piles up to 200 inches or more per year. The southeastern portion of the state sees late spring thunderstorms and early summer tornados.
Tourism, energy, and agriculture contribute to the state's coffers. More than six million people visit Wyoming's national parks and monuments per year. Half of those visitors come to see stunning Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
An important part of Wyoming's cowboy culture, farms and ranches are leading producers of beef, hay, sugar beets, and wool. A major source of coal, coalbed methane, and crude oil, the state also has rich reserves of trona and natural gas.
Nellie Tayloe Ross became the country's first female governor in 1925. No other woman has served as Wyoming governor since.
