U of I Golf Course
Indoor Trackman Simulator Open
Winter time is upon us on the Palouse. That doesn't mean you should be putting the clubs away to collect dust. The University of Idaho would like to proudly announce the first indoor golf simulator available in this area. Powered by Trackman technology, the simulator allows you to play 15 courses including Pinehurst #2, Bethpage black, Harbour town golf links, Bay Hill Golf Club, and Torrey Pines Golf Course.
You can also use the time to hone your game on the virtual driving range. Using state of the art technology that records all aspects of your swing including swing speed, attack angle, smash factor, and launch angle you can take your swing to heights you only dreamed of a year ago. Winter series lessons are available from any of the PGA professionals and apprentice to keep you moving in the right direction going into the new year.
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."
