Withstanding the test of time, the University of Idaho Golf Course was originally designed by Francis L. James and constructed in 1933. Nestled among the rolling hills of the Palouse, panoramic wheat land vistas change with the seasons from emerald green to amber gold against a mountain backdrop.
This unique course is challenging, offering a variety of shots from uneven lies to elevated and recessed greens. The front nine provides scoring opportunities featuring three par 5's in an open grassland venue. The back nine tightens up into a narrow parkland theme, including two difficult par 3's. The round concludes by running the gauntlet of the last three challenging holes known by locals as "heartbreak ridge."
