Coeur D’Alene Golf Course – Coeur D’Alene, Idaho
Tucked away near the iconic Lake Coeur D’Alene, this golf course is one of American golf’s best-kept secrets. The golfing jewel of the Northwest is a must-see for players travelling through Idaho – this week’s course review takes a virtual tour of the course.
Taking luxury to a new level
Coeur D’Alene first opened its doors in 1991 as part of the popular resort which shares its name. The Scott Miller-designed 18 hole golf course creates a pristine parkland setting with plenty of water features – especially Lake Coeur D‘Alene which provides a scenic backdrop for eighteen holes of golf.
The service ethos at Coeur D’Alene puts luxury and attention to detail at the top of the list, with each golfing foursome receiving their own caddie who assists with shot planning, retrieving balls, and raking bunkers during each round.
Golfers also travel between holes in a mahogany boat and can enjoy the resort’s luxury accommodation and leisure facilities at the end of a round. Coeur D’Alene also offers free sports massages at their driving range – treating visiting golfers to a standard of luxury that rivals the best private clubs in the world.
A pristine golfing experience
The greens keepers at Coeur D’Alene maintain the course in superb condition, with lush green fairways and super-smooth greens greeting golfers as they wind their way around the parkland layout.
For golfers who pride themselves on distance and accuracy off the tee, the famous 14th hole at Coeur D’Alene will be a definite highlight. The hole features a floating green which is accessed by boat after golfers take their approach shot – many players are relieved to find their ball waiting for them on the green when they disembark the boat, while others have to satisfy themselves with a dropped shot.
Playing the course
Coeur D’Alene is open to the public, with resort guests taking priority. For more information, please visit the resort’s website.
