In Northern Wyoming, The Powder Horn Boasts Handsome Homes, 27 Holes of Golf and a Majestic Setting
A luxurious resort lifestyle awaits those who retire to The Powder Horn, an upscale golf community situated in a scenic valley 175 miles east of Yellowstone National Park in north central Wyoming. Although this community is not age-restricted, it is popular with baby boomers and retirees.
Sread across more than 900 rolling acres, The Powder Horn currently has about 200 elegant patio homes, cottages and custom homes. Square footage ranges from just a little over 1,500 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet. All properties come with mountain, valley or golf course views.
The community blends nicely into the surrounding landscape, so much so that it is a designated National Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The Big Horn Mountains loom in the distance, and nearby meadows are populated with antelope and elk. The air is crisp and clean, and the topaz sky stretches as far as one can see.
Home prices usually begin in the $500,000s and $600,000s. The HOA fee is about $85 per month, but there are additional golf and membership fees. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they are bound to change.
The Powder Horn has been named by Travel & Leisure Golf as one of "America's Top 100 Golf Communities," and the 27 holes of golf are the reason why. Residents enjoy three nine-hole courses, five different tee boxes, two practice facilities and a pro shop. There is also an active women's golf association.
In addition to outstanding golf, the members-only 30,000 square foot clubhouse has a restaurant, a bar, a fitness center, a spa and a pool. There are two tennis courts and an active tennis community with social events and tournaments. The on-site tennis pro provides lessons. Horseback riding trails, trout-stocked ponds, nearby lakes and abundant wildlife all contribute to The Powder Horn's quality of life.
Sheridan is a nice Western community, a hub for ranchers and farmers but also popular with tourists. Its Sherican Memorial Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Summers bring temperatures in the 70s and 80s. Winters bring temperatures in the teens and 20s. On average, the area receives 15 inches of rain and 75 inches of snow each year.

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.
