Coeur d’Alene Resort Recognized by Pacific Northwest Golfer Magazine

Par-4 13th selected as one of the ‘Great Holes of the Northwest’

In the September 2022 issue of Pacific Northwest Golfer magazine, the par-4 13th hole on the Coeur d’Alene (Idaho) Resort Golf Course is recognized as one of the “Great Holes of the Northwest,” one of just four holes selected each year by the Northwest’s largest and longest-running golf publication.

The par-4 13th hole at Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course

This short par-4 (334 yards from the tips, 270 yards from the forward tees) sits perched on the northern shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene. There is water short, long and left, and a massive fairway bunker sits on the right side of the landing area that guards the bailout. A short carry over the first water inlet is the safe play, although long hitters may try to drive the green which would have to carry a second water inlet just before the putting surface. The green is two-tiered and protected by bunkers on three sides. The back-right hole location on top of the small upper tier requires pin-point shot-making.

Designed by Scott Miller and opened in 1991, the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course was the brainchild of North Idaho businessman and publisher Duane Hagadone. The course has developed a well-deserved reputation for immaculate conditions, superior guest service and attention to detail, and more than 60,000 flowers that add color to every hole, all which lead the course to be consistently recognized with awards from Golf Digest, Golf magazine, and Conde Naste Traveler.
