For some golfers, the natural beauty at<br />

StoneRidge, set among northern <strong>Idaho</strong>’s thick<br />

conifer forests and blue mountain lakes, is<br />

enough reason to keep coming back. For others,<br />

it is the pure challenge of the par 71 championship<br />

golf course with just enough water hazards<br />

and white sand bunkers to make even the biggest<br />

hitters play with care. Completely redesigned in<br />

2001 by Frank Burandt, formerly of Nicklaus<br />

Design Group, the course features 7,032 yards<br />

of Kentucky Blue Grass with Bent Grass greens.<br />

Situated at the base of Mount Spokane and<br />

bordering the beautiful Lake San Succi, it<br />

remains a true test for golfers of all skill levels.<br />


Home of the Floating Green, the Coeur d’Alene<br />

Resort <strong>Golf</strong> Course is nestled in the foothills of<br />

the Rocky Mountains on the shores of beautiful<br />

Lake Coeur d’Alene in northern <strong>Idaho</strong>. Ranked<br />

as the #2 resort golf course in the nation, second<br />

only to Pebble Beach, it features fairways that play<br />

from tee to green on a lush carpet of Bent Grass.<br />

Scott Miller designed the 6,803 yard, par 71<br />

course around four distinct geographic features:<br />

an expansive lakeshore, a forested ridge, gently<br />

rolling woodlands and Fernan Creek, a revitalized<br />

trout stream. It is a course playable for families, yet<br />

challenging enough to test the pros. Summer Stay<br />

Circling Raven was created amid a unique blend of<br />

wetlands, grasslands and woodlands. At 7,189 yards,<br />

ground. Named “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” by<br />

balance the wetlands on 16 holes, and surround the<br />

closely manicured Blue Grass fairways and Bent Grass<br />

greens. Take the “Tees and Threes,” challenge, four<br />

par 3s, each over 200 yards from the back tees.<br />


Withstanding the test of time, the University of<br />

<strong>Idaho</strong> <strong>Golf</strong> Course was originally designed by<br />

Francis L. James and constructed in 1933. Nestled<br />

among the rolling hills of the Palouse, vistas of<br />

wheat change with the seasons from emerald green<br />

to amber gold against a mountain backdrop. This<br />

unique course is challenging, offering a variety<br />

of shots from uneven lies to elevated and recessed<br />

greens. The front nine provides scoring opportunities<br />

featuring three par 5s in an open grassland<br />

venue. The back nine tightens up into a narrow<br />

parkland theme, including two difficult par 3s.<br />

The round concludes by running the gauntlet of<br />

the last 3 challenging holes known by locals as<br />

“Heartbreak Ridge.”<br />
