Played here today. One of the toughest courses I have ever played. Every tee box has a hazard or a long forced carry in front of it. As an example. # 10 from the blue is over a marsh, to an elevated fairway and you must carry it 200 yards just to hit the fairway (par 5 @536). That's just one hole? It would take me a week to describe all the other ones (LOL). The course itself is beautifully maintained. Tee boxes were immaculate. Fairways were green but not lush, like lower elevation courses here in ID. You had to be good at taking divots and sweeping the ball with your hybrids ( my 3 wood did not want to work on this grass). From the tips, it is 7089 and rated 74.6/148. A Nicklaus course. There is a ton of water that comes into play and the outside of all fairways is either a cliff or tall native grass (bring lots of balls), you must stay in the fairway, or else. Tremendously designed holes, especially the par 3's. You end with a par 3 over water @ 199 (# 16), Then a par 4 @ 419 with water in front of the green, then a par 4 @ 467 with the fairway surrounded by water and water in front of the green. And the greens were huge, undulating and fast (11-12) and local knowledge would go a long way at this course (no GPS or booklet ???). Customer service is tremendous. 8 miles out of Sandpoint ID but well worth the trip or stop if in the area. It is officially in my top ten of all time. Totally a bucket list course. And a steal at $75. I will place pics on all reviews upon my return.
