The Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course and its famed floating green have annually been rated among the best resort courses in America by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and others. Designer Scott Miller's vision was that The Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course be remembered not only as a great golf course, but also as an incredibly beautiful park. Building on that tradition, the Course has undergone a transformation for 2003 with new tees, new greens, a forest of new trees, new fairway bunkers and over 500 yards of new terrain. All designed to improve player aesthetics and enhance shot values. With a minimum of four tees on each hole, bentgrass fairways and manicured greens, The Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course is challenging, yet forgiving, playable by golfers of all ages and skill levels. A variety of golf packages are available through the Coeur d'Alene Resort.

Golf Digest listed Circling Raven among the "Top 10 Best New Upscale Courses" in America.
The players experience is that of a links-style course. Wetlands impact play on 13 holes, natural grasses compliment the wetlands. A mix of Ponderosa Pines, Aspens, Cottonwoods and Birch blend into the scenery. The player's greatest challenges are "Tees and Threes," meaning accurate driving and careful management of the four par 3s, all measuring over 200 yards from the back tees. White sand, brought in from Emmet, Idaho, fills 60 bunkers on the Gene Bates designed course.

Nestled between the Boise and Payette National Forests, with dazzling perspectives in every direction, MeadowCreek Golf Resort is situated in one of the grandest settings in America. Perfectly located exactly halfway between the equator and the North Pole in the pine-forested Meadows Valley with the towering alpine peaks of Granite Mountain and Brundage Mountain Resort reaching skyward in the distance, four distinct seasons with an exaggerated summer are enjoyed. The course weaves in and out of the pine trees and across the verdant meadows offering changing scenery and stimulating golf at every turn. Long summer days provide light past 10 p.m. for the enthusiast who wants to take in every moment. Just 13 miles north of the lake resort town of McCall and 33 miles north of Idaho’s newest four season playground, Tamarack Resort, MeadowCreek Golf Resort offers another vision of beautiful Idaho complete with championship golf, a variety of comfortable lodging, fine and casual dining, tennis, swimming, and numerous outdoor recreation activities.

Challenging Golf, Tranquil Beauty and 19 Holes of Championship Golf For some golfers the peaceful natural beauty at StoneRidge, set amid northern Idaho’s thick conifer forests and blue mountain lakes, is the reason they keep coming back. For others it is the pure challenge of our par 71 championship golf course with just enough water hazards and white sand bunkers that even the biggest hitters play with care. In addition to our Men’s and Ladies’ Leagues, they also offer a variety of tournaments, and corporate golf retreats.

Find yourself on what Golf Digest calls "one of the best 100 golf courses in the United States and #1 golf course in Idaho." The Sun Valley Resort Golf Course is a rugged and spectacular golf course that will provide a challenging round of golf for every level of player. Robert Trent Jones Jr. finished his redesign of the course in 1980 with a full compliment of stream carries and ominous bunkers well positioned to catch the errant shot. The 6,892 yard, 72 par course has 18 signature holes and crosses the beautiful Trail Creek seven times on the front nine alone! Coupled with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and ever-present crystal blue skies, you will find a round of golf at the Sun Valley Resort a well-earned addition to any golf resume.

Osprey Meadows is a Robert Trent Jones Jr. Signature Course that lies in a sweeping meadow between the forest of Tamarack's steep-rising Council Mountain and shimmering Lake Cascade. The 72 par course features a challenging, 400-acre layout and natural, varied terrain. There are approximately 90 bunkers spread over 18 holes with several significant water features and wetlands, tree-lined fairways, spacious greens, and five par-5 holes. The average size of the greens is 7,000 square feet with an average green slope gradient of less than 3%. The course is at an elevation of 5,000 feet-ideal for carrying the ball and providing a longer mountain resort season. Osprey Meadows is a public course with private memberships available. All golfers, however, have access to Tamarack's Members' Lodge and Spa for lodging, dining, shopping, and relaxing at the pool and spa. Additional on-site lodging is available in luxurious Tamarack cottages, chalets and custom homes.
