Two new golf courses were recently added to the Idaho Golf Trail, a tour of some of Idaho’s finest courses.
Falcon Crest Golf Club, located just 15 minutes southwest of Boise, is a par-72 course stretching along 7,089 yards. With views of the Boise Valley and surrounding mountains, the course design combines the natural terrain with water, grass, sand and stone, making each hole a one-of-a-kind experience, whether playing 18 holes on the championship course or just nine on the executive course.
Jug Mountain Ranch is a 7,265-yard, par-72 course designed by Donald Knott, whose previous work included the widely acclaimed Links at Spanish Bay (Pebble Beach), Rancho La Quinta, Sun Valley Resort, and more than 60 other courses worldwide. In its January 2008 issue, Golf Digest ranked the course as the “second best new public course under $75.”
The Idaho Golf Trail brings together ten unique and challenging courses across the state to provide a great golf experience. The trail is divided into three sections. In the northern Panhandle are Circling Raven , Coeur d’Alene Resort and StoneRidge — all near Coeur d’Alene. Southern Idaho is home to Banbury, Falcon Crest Golf Club, and Sun Valley Golf Course, while the newly created central loop includes Osprey Meadows at Tamarack Resort, Whitetail Golf Club, MeadowCreek and Jug Mountain Ranch.
