You don’t have to play Augusta, Pebble Beach or Sawgrass to get a taste of championship golf. Some of the best courses in the world are found in areas where you’d least expect them. For instance, the multi-award-winning Whitetail Club golf course, designed by veteran golf architect Roger Packard and two-time U.S. Open winner Andy North, can be found in the undiscovered town of McCall, Idaho, located just two hours north of Boise.
Don’t let the shimmering trout ponds, towering pines and sweeping meadows fool you, either. Every hole is as challenging as it is beautiful. The 7,200-yard, par-72 championship-style course has earned honors on GolfWeek’s Best Resort Courses and Best Course you Can Play lists for three consecutive years and is quietly becoming one of the top must-play courses in the U.S. As a guest of Shore Lodge you have exclusive access to play Whitetail Club’s award winning course.
