Excellent challenging course...don't miss it.

Circling Raven was a real pleasure to play. The design and layout of the course is fabulous. You see the clubhouse on hole 1, 9 and 10. The rest of the time you are of in a golf wonderland of hills and doglegs and just plain great golf holes.
Fortunately we were paired up with a single player who had played the course, was extremely helpful in course tips and an excellent player. He helped make our round a nice treat of a day as well...we stepped our game up instead of bring his down. Along with feeling like you are the only people on the course you also are challenged on every hole. The greens are well kept, roll true and not overly difficult but as usual be below the hole.
There are a few holes with some interesting risk/reward choices of split fairways and angles to the green. The par 3's are lengthy but usually elevated so that helps the distance.
The course also has a casino and hotel on the same property so make a day or even a full night of it and truly enjoy yourself. We are glad we did.

Better than most

I've played the course about a dozen times and it never disappoints. In fact, it's one of my favorites of all time, and I've played hundreds of courses. The reasons I like Circling Raven so much are the design (Gene Bates was the golf course architect), the setting (hundreds of acres with no surrounding development), the price (value), and the vibe. It's laid back and full of nice amenities. The golf shop and restaurant bar at the course are excellent, and the casino resort hotel is nice. My wife had two spa treatments (massage and facial) and said the spa is very good. The price is unreal to play. We only payed $89 for our round, and courses not nearly as good charge double that all over the U.S. When friends ask where they should try new for a golf vacation, Circling Raven is always one of my recommendations. Also, it's not far from Coeur d'Alene Resort Course, which makes for a good one-two punch of courses, although the CDA Resort Course is very pricey compared to Circling Raven.

Loved This Course!

I had played the Coeur D'Alene resort course with island green the day before and enjoyed Circling Raven a little more. Outstanding layout with interesting holes, challenging and perfect condition. Staff was super friendly and about half the price of the other course. Would definitely come back here. Well worth the 30 min. drive.

Any other day I'd probably love it

I was building this course up to be the best of my week long trip and it turned out to not be my favorite course. The course from Pro Shop to the practice facility to the first tee are in incredible shape. Lots of dedication and professionalism go into the day to day operation of this course.
The day I was there it rained off and on and was booked solid with foursomes. I played with 3 complete strangers who were nice enough but once I rediscovered my fade problem with my driver and 3 wood the on course lessons began. We all know how troubling that is when lessons are given by complete strangers. Well I was getting it from 2 different people. This just frustrated me more and thus soured my experience at Circling Raven.
The course is amazing though. The touch screen GPS in the carts was awesome and well needed. I found the course to be very difficult with narrow fairways, lots of bunkers and trees, and the greens were sloped in every way possible. The greens were recently sanded/fertilized and that had some putts rolling slower than they should, that was a drawback.
They could use some marshals out there, our round took 5 hours. It was brutal. Favorite holes were 3,7, & 12. The beverage cart girl who resembled Jessica Biel was also a welcome sight all 4 times she passed us.

Great Course, even better value!!!

This is one of the best courses I have ever played! The greens roll with great accuracy and are always in great condition. The fairways are pristine and yet this course is more than half the price of Couer d'Alene, all because it is a little south and doesn't have a floating gree.
