The nine-hole White Clouds Course at Sun Valley Resort in Idaho is quite different from the resort's 18-hole Trail Creek Course. While Trail Creek is a traditionally styled parkland course, White Clouds plays up into the hills on severe topography and with few trees in sight. Here's a closer look.
Robert Trent Jones Jr.'s 1980 overhaul of the Trail Creek course at Sun Valley Resort in Idaho transformed the 18-hole layout. He added a new nine, more severe and challenging, to enhance the impact of the creek for which the golf course is named. Check out the beauty of the Jones' handiwork.
Located on the shores of Lake Coeur D'Alene in northern Idaho, the Coeur D'Alene Resort has been a fixture of this summertime outdoors hotbed since its opening in 1986. Its most famous for the island green at the golf course, a hole which sits entirely out into the lake and requires a short boat ride to reach from the mainland.
The centerpiece of the Gozzer Ranch Golf and Lake Club in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, is a course designed by Tom Fazio. The layout weaves breathlessly through the 700 acres of the property operated by the Discovery Land Company. And there's so much more to discover here than just golf.
