Floating Golf Course at Coeur d'Alene Resort

Nov 17, 2013 6 comments

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.

  1. Does anyone know what the 6 sided figure in the water is next to the island? or why it's there?

  2. What is the outline in the water next to the floating green?

    1. That's the GUR .... (Groung under Repair) !!!

  3. Looks to me like a driving range.

  4. I have never seen the green move or vary more than a few feet (the amount afforded by the anchoring system) in the decade plus I've been summering there. I have golfed a few rounds there over the years, and the green is been positioned in the same place every time. The daily moving is either a myth or marketing. It is anchored approx 130 yards off the shore (definitely a far cry from the middle of Lake CDA)
