Two courses in one

It never ceases to amaze me how SVGC plays like 2 completely different courses. The front plays almost as a links- exposed greens, lots of fairway slope. The cant of the fairway will make or break your 9.

The back is all angles. You need to be able to move the ball in both directions, hit low & high shots, and have good distance control. It's a parkland 9, with trees bordering every fairway but 1. Wondwrful short yard challenge. Highly recommended

Perfect weather

No two holes alike (almost)

My favorite part of this track is that there are (almost) not two holes that are alike. You could argue that 10 and 12 are similar (dog leg left par 4's requiring either a relatively short tee shot, or a successful cutting of the corner over trees); however, even these holes differ quite a bit after you get beyond the general nature of the tee shot.

The short par 4 second hole is a perfect example of the interesting course elements in play here. After a short tee shot (I use a 7 iron unless I'm feeling bold and trying to cut part of the corner over trees - even then just a 5) you are left with another fairly short downhill shot (a wedge if you cut a little off the corner with a longer club, else an 8 or 9) into a shallow green with a creek running in front of it and OB on the other three sides.

Most of the holes on the front nine have some sort of roll or elevation change, while much (all but 2 holes) of the back flattens out. The back, however, features dog legs or other course elements on each hole to keep things interesting. There is more OB on this course than you will find on most Treasure Valley courses so if you are not shooting accurately you can go through quite a few balls; however it's a pleasure - both interesting and scenic - to play as long as you are fairly accurate.

I've seldom had issues with pace of play here, with things generally moving along quite nicely. The clubhouse folks are always welcoming and friendly as well. Shadow Valley is one of the better courses in the Boise area and certainly worth having toward the top of your "get out and play" list.

Worth the short drive!

Really enjoyed playing this course; definitely worth the short drive to the outskirt of Boise. I found it to be challenging, but very fun! Each hole keeps you on your toes, as you strategically maneuver your way around the course. The staff was very friendly and offered me a free bottle of water and a cookie on my way to the first tee. Some of the greens were inconsistent, but they're in the process of resolving the issue. *All of the greens were in good condition and played well - just a couple differed from the others. This course is now on my list for playing when I'm in town for business.
