Golf Course Layout

Designer Scott Miller's vision was a golf course offering a stimulating round of golf, immersing players in a pristine park-like environment. The result is fairways, playing from tee to green on a lush carpet of bentgrass, accented with beds of brilliant red geraniums, acres of junipers and alpine water challenges of Lake Coeur d'Alene and Fernan Creek.

The 6,803-yard, par 71 course boasts views of the lake from nearly every hole and is designed around four distinct geographic features: an expansive lakeshore, a forested ridge, gently rolling woodlands and Fernan Creek.

Former PGA Tour Professional, Chip Beck, called The Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course one of the finest he has ever seen, lauding it as “a course playable and fun for families, yet challenging enough to test the pros.”
