Taping into what GolfWorld Magazine calls "their most valuable resource - our readers", surveys were tallied with one primary goal in mind... answering the question "What makes for a great place to golf?". When the results came in, The Coeur d'Alene received a #1 ranking in course conditioning and #3 in service which vaulted The Coeur d'Alene Resort to the top of all resort courses in the Western United States overall.
"We are extremely proud of receiving such a high ranking in the GolfWorld's 2009 Readers' Choice Awards. It is the first time the magazine has ranked the best facilities in the country. The fact that the GolfWorld's readership distinguished our resort with high marks is tremendous. This ranking essentially comes from our Guests, making this award even more special and exciting for our team." said Jerry Jaeger, President & Co-Owner of Hagadone Hospitality, Inc.
"Our golf course Superintendent, Kevin Hicks, and the entire golf course team should take great honor in being ranked 'the finest conditioned resort course in America'".
