ircling Raven Golf Club is a resort 18-hole golf course located in Worley, Idaho.
The Circling Raven golf course first opened for play in 2003. The course was designed by Gene Bates.
The first settlers to meet the Schitsu'umsh Indians of northern Idaho were early 19th-century French fur traders who, impressed by the tribe's acumen, dubbed them "Coeur d'Alene," or "heart of the awl." The tribe is still enterprising, having turned a small bingo operation into a resort destination.
Circling Raven Golf Club, a Gene Bates design opened August 2003, occupies wilderness so grand that one prospective architect thought the land should be a state park.
Like Lewis and Clark, who passed 100 miles south of here, golfers have the place to themselves, save for the occasional elk or moose.
Circling Raven's par 3s average almost 220 yards. The 13th is 253 yards across a gully, with wetlands right and pines lurking in back. The 386-yard 8th is short but doesn't lack a "wow" factor, playing downhill to a green framed by birches, poplars and pines. The Coeur d'Alene resort and its floating green are a half-hour -- and $100 -- north of Circling Raven.
