A gem in North Idaho

This course is a treat to play. The course has wonderful scenery, lots of wetlands, and is a bonus if you are staying at Priest Lake. Only negative aspect is the tee boxes - most are OK but they why I ranked the course 4 stars instead of 5.

Challenging course

Beautiful golf course with challenging holes. Miss the fairway on some holes and your ball disapears in the Ken high grass.

Seems your complaint should be with GN rather than PLGC

Nature Golfing!

Priest Lake Golf Course offers a golfing experience as close to nature as it gets. For decades I have kept a smalllive-aboard sailboat moored at Priest Lake, and I am grateful to call PLGC is my summer-home-course!

Over my many years and rounds, I have golfed with the eagles, osprey, ducks, geese, squirrels, deer, moose, and black bears that inhabit the amazing Priest Lake area and are occasionally seen on the course earl mornings.

The water features here are unique! (Bring extra.balls!)

If you can, walk this course... It is a long one, but you’ll feel like you just hiked through paradise - and you’ll forget your mis-hits and lost balls!

Course continues to improve

Holes 10, 15 and 16 are challenging for short hitters to carry the hazard areas for the second shot on 10 and drives on 15 and 16.
