Sheer incompettence

Made tee time in advance and requested rental set LH. Arrived for time and was told they only had one set and someone else had it reserved. Unbelievable. And the level of contrition was modest at best. Vacation day planned around this was wasted.

Amazing, must play

Hands-down one of the best, and most difficult, courses I've played (and I've played many). Half of the course is hilly, tight, and tree-lined, while the other half is flat and plays through wetlands (plenty of water hazards). This is target golf at its best, plenty of forced carries, plan on losing 3 times as many balls as normal. Tees, fairways, and greens all were in excellent condition. Some great deals can be found online, or weekday twilight is good rate. The clubhouse burned down sometime ago, so they operate the golf shop out of a regular house next door. No restaurant, but they do have beverages at least. If you're a glutton for punishment, this course is for you!

Extremely difficult and unfriendly Idaho Club

Keeping in the tradition of a Nicklaus design course, this is a beautiful course in superb surroundings. However, in keeping with the usual Nicklaus design, it is way way way too difficult for the average golfer, even when playing from appropriate tee boxes. The greens are extremely slippery and fast with lots of contour making putting difficult. However the most difficult part of the course are the enormous "carrys" that are needed over marshes and rocks. It was so difficult that it was not fun on many holes. In addition, the course is extremely poorly marked so it is difficult to find one's way from one hole to the next..signage is poor. There is no diagram on each tee box of each hole and difficult to know the yardage to all the trouble on the course...needed my laser pretty much all the time. Bent grass fairways and greens and beautiful. No decent bathroom facilities on the course other than a port-a-potties and no water facilities. Staff in pro shop are very nice. No restaurant. I would not return to this course due to the extreme difficulty and the extreme concentration required for every single shot.

Excellent and Challenging Golf Course

The Idaho Club is an extremely well cared for golf course with tons of beauty and challenges. Plan on losing at least 8 balls. The club house unfortunately burned down so they have a temporary one that has minimal space. Staff was amazing and friendly making the overall experience one that will be hard to top!

Course should be in better condition as being private.

For a private course it did not provide drinking water on the course. A lot of the bunkers were not maintained. It seemed as to be an O-Hum type of course management.

It is a hard son of a gun

My wife and I played The Idaho Club and everything that you read is true. The course need a bit of help in some places, the facilities are kinda lacking, the golf carts are possibly on their last leg (ours had the hardest seat cushion ever) and the routing and layout require some impossible shots (220+ yard carries, etc). Now I can say I played it. Probably won't be going back.

Jack would not be proud

The staff was not accommodating, the greens were slow, the golf cart felt as if the wheels were going to fall off at any time and the course was very confusing for a group playing the course for the first time.

Greens- real slow. Course needs more players so they can spend more money on maintainace. Payed $50.00, that is what is worth.

Needs alot of money infused to bring it back to it's wounderful golf experince.

fantastic scenery---great challenge

This is a great course. I played the predecessor course, Hidden Lakes, many times but was unable to play the Idaho Club until they relaxed their policies. I'm glad they did. Play the correct tees, bring lots of balls and enjoy the scenery and the experience.
