Floating Golf Course at Coeur d'Alene Resort

The Coeur d'Alene Resort is a luxury resort hotel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, U.S. Located on the north shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene, the Coeur d Alene Resort is best known for its astounding 18-hole golf course, a part of which is perched on a movable artificial island is the middle of a lake.

Coeur d’Alene’s celebrated 14th hole is located on a boat and it moves around Lake Coeur d’Alene, never to stay in one place for more that a day. Built on a barge on submerged tracks, the green is moved daily by computer. Hitting the turf is difficult since the distance keeps varying. Water taxis transport golfers to and from the hole.

The golf course and the floating green were designed by Scott Miller, and the course opened for play in 1991. It has since been ranked among the best resort golf courses in the United States by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and others.
