About the Golf Course
18 Challenging Holes and Stunning Scenery
Nestled among the rolling hills of the Palouse sits the historic University of Idaho Golf Course. Originally designed by Francis L. James and constructed in 1936, our golf course boasts a rich history and stunning scenery. Our panoramic vistas and the university’s arboretum create a backdrop that changes with the seasons from emerald green to amber gold.
Our uniquely challenging course offers a variety of shots, from uneven lies to elevated and recessed greens. The front nine provides scoring opportunities, featuring three par-5s in an open grassland venue. The back nine tightens up into a narrow parkland theme, including two difficult par-3s. The round concludes by running a gauntlet of three challenging holes known by locals as "Heartbreak Ridge."
