Circling Raven set to open April 12


Circling Raven Golf Club Opens for Play on April 12; Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel Amenity Offers Best Bang for Buck in America

(Worley, Idaho; March 27, 2019) – Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel today announces that Circling Raven Golf Club will open its 15th Anniversary Season for play on April 12, teeing up the commemorative occasion with arguably the most value-laden green fee in the game, according to GOLF.

The magazine rates Circling Raven an exceptional bargain, naming the inspirational Gene Bates design to the “Best Golf Courses You Can Play in America Under $100” list.


“It may not sport a floating island green like its neighbor up the road,” stated GOLF. “But this bird has everything else in its nest, including wetlands, grasslands and Ponderosa pines, plus unparalleled solitude disturbed only by the stray elk or moose. Circling Raven sports a modest green fee that enhances the tranquil ambience.”

Weekday green fees are $79 for 18 holes, Monday-Thursday, April 12-May 23 ($89 on Friday-Sunday and holidays). Prices increase to $89 on weekdays during peak season (May 24-October 6), and $99 on Friday-Sunday and holidays.

Additional value can be had through the “Early Bird Stay-and-Play Package,” good from April 12 to May 23, and including golf for two players and one night’s stay (double occupancy). Package options start at $223 and go to $287, price dependent on day of week and whether the Mountain Lodge or Spa Tower are selected.

Offering affordable green fees and packages is the tip of the iceberg at Circling Raven during its 15th Anniversary Season. The “Easter Brunch & Golf Package” (breakfast buffet in casino and golf $99 per person) is offered on April 21. May 4 brings Callaway Demo Day, 10 am to 2 pm, which includes complimentary use of the pristine, 25-acre practice range. Spend $500 or more and receive a 2-for-1 green fees voucher. All Circling Raven purchases are tax free.
