Ahead of the World Golf Awards later this year, Breaking Travel News takes a look around one of the most exciting courses anywhere on earth – Coeur d’Alene Resort.
It began with a sudden flash of inspiration - a man walking his dog, gazing out at a tugboat towing a raft of logs on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
In 1991, the first ball was struck onto the floating green on the 14th, and Duane Hagadone’s vision was on its way to becoming one of the best-loved icons in golf.
With idyllic landscape, year-round activities, and its spectacular setting at the shore of one of America’s most beautiful lakes, it is no wonder Lake Coeur d’Alene has been christened the ‘Playground of the Northwest’.
The Coeur d’Alene Resort has mastered the art of relaxation.
With luxurious accommodations, rejuvenating spa treatments, sumptuous cuisine, and breathtaking holiday displays, and world-class golf which includes the world’s only floating green, this four-star resort continues to be the destination of choice for discerning travellers worldwide.
The Coeur d’Alene Resort golf course is simply sublime.
Nothing is spared to deliver the ultimate golfing experience, once described as America’s Most Beautiful Resort Golf Course by Golf Digest.
