Idaho Golf

From lakeside greens in Northern Idaho to mountain landscapes in the Southern part of the state, the sun is finally peeking through the clouds and courses are officially open all over Idaho.

The Idaho Golf Trail is a golfer’s playground including four loops which feature 14 courses of world-class golfing. The courses selected for the Idaho Golf Trail are situated in or near resort-style settings to provide the ultimate luxury golf experience. Ranging from the Scottish-style layout at Banbury to the 60 white-sand bunkers at Circling Raven, the Idaho Golf Trail offers something for golfers of all skill levels from beginners to the pros.

A few highlights of some of the golf trail courses include: Teton Reserve Golf Course provides the first and only 18-hole reversible championship golf course, home to 4 different 18-hole courses. This course also features a double ended, 500-yard practice facility.

Sun Valley Golf Course features 27 holes set in pure pristine beauty. If you are anxious to start golfing a.s.a.p., feel free to check out their new Sun Valley Virtual Golf Center. Here you can gear up for the season’s best golfing opportunities by practicing your strokes and sharpening your short game.
