Warm Springs makes less use of the adjacent Boise river than you might expect; however there is, nonetheless, plenty of water to avoid. This along with good angles and well placed bunkers provide a decent defense for the course.

Having said that, this is a course that can be attacked on certain holes. The par 4 2nd for example can be shortened considerably by either hitting a long drive over, or even a strong medium iron under, the second set of trees on the dog leg left. A similar high risk high reward shot awaits over water on #7. Both of these holes can be birdied fairly easily with a good tee shot, but can also lead to bogey or worse should you make a mistake. I found achieved both results with a birdie on 2 and a double bogey on 7.

I've played this course many times and enjoy the deer and other wildlife; each spring the course is teaming with baby ducks and geese. For a largely flat (there is only one elevated tee box to be found) course it is quite scenic.

Being on the river Warm Springs enjoys considerably more trees than many of it's sister courses in Boise. It does however, keep the grasses between fairways closely cut so this is a good place to keep lost balls to a minimum, provided you are able to avoid the ponds and creeks throughout the course.

Warm Springs is a nice course that will not punish you much unless your shot is truly errant and where, should you string together a few good shots, a rather good score can certainly come into play. I always enjoy playing here and do recommend it.
