Trained panelists designated by Golf Digest, a group of over 1000 avid golfers, traveled the continent over the past three years to stay at resorts, play the golf courses and systematically rate every aspect of the resort golf experience.
“We wanted their overall impression of each resort’s quality, not strictly its golf course or courses.”, says Peter Finch, Editor at Golf Digest. “No matter where you go, you’re going to find high thread count. Yet make no mistake: The quality of golf is extremely high, too.”
The Coeur d’Alene ranks #62 on the recently published list that included 30 newcomers since the last ranking in 2009. Regionally, The Coeur d’Alene ranked #1 in Washington, Idaho, Montana and Utah.
Earlier this year, Golf Digest released its list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses. The Coeur d’Alene was one of only 36 golf courses to be celebrated on both lists.
“This is an extremely distinguished list of the most respected quality resort golf experiences in the United States, Canada and Mexico. We are flattered and thrilled to continue to be among this elite group,” said Jerry Jaeger, President and Co-owner of Hagadone Hospitality Company. “Every member of our resort hospitality team needs to be commended for this exciting accomplishment.”
This is the eighth consecutive time Golf Digest’s 75 Best Golf Resorts in North America survey has honored The Coeur d’Alene Resort with this highly esteemed ranking.
