Coeur d'Alene Casino golf course extends special spring rate

19 May 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Circling Raven, the No. 1-rated public course in Idaho and an amenity of Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort Hotel, announces that it will maintain spring green fees at the acclaimed 18-hole golf course throughout 2020. This will also be applied to stay-and-play packages this season.

“We’ve been able to provide a safe recreational outlet for a substantial number of players since opening in March, but given all that is transpiring societally, we felt this was the right thing to do,” said Circling Raven’s Dave Christenson, PGA, Director of Golf.

Peak season rates were to commence on 21 May, but the golf club, owned and operated by the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, pivoted toward accessible value and support for its patrons during this challenging time. Additionally, Circling Raven is offering several special events this spring and season, complementing the critically acclaimed 18-hole golf experience.

An exciting event for young people is Free Kids Day with a special appearance by former LPGA star and U.S. Women’s Amateur champion Wendy Ward, a Spokane resident. There will be two events, on 17 May and 23 May, from 3-5 p.m. Participants ages 7 – 15 will be introduced to golf by Circling Raven golf professionals and get to meet Ms. Ward. Each child will receive an hour lesson, including learning to putt, chip and drive the golf ball. This will be followed by a complimentary dinner and the opportunity to tour the golf course. To reserve a place in the limited participant event, RSVP with Head Golf Professional David VonBrethorst ( or 800-523-2464 ext. 7262).

A partial list of Circling Raven events includes the following:

  • 17 and 23 May: Free Kids Day
  • 18 May: Family Day
  • 19 and 26 May: Practice Clinic
  • 20 and 27 May, and 3 June: Ladies Nine & Wine
  • 30 May – 10 a.m. start – Demo Day

On Demo Day, representatives from equipment manufacturers Callaway and TaylorMade will be present from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., to provide custom club fittings. Due to social distancing protocol, spaces are limited and there will be no walk ups. Participants must register in advance and can do so online. Advantage Card members receive priority reservation when signing up.

The Advantage Card is an ideal way to maximize receiving Circling Raven perks. Purchasing the card enables cardholders to receive a complimentary round this season, free entry into an Advantage Cardholder tournament, $10 off the lowest greens fee for each round, supervised practice on the range or clinics with Circling Raven pros, and more. For example, cardholders receive 20% off all shoes in the Golf Shop during May.

Circling Raven Stay-and-Play Packages begin at $249 and include one night’s stay, double occupancy, and two rounds each at Circling Raven. The packages are complimented by pairing golf with other Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel amenities. From massages and other services at Spa Ssakwa’q’n (pronounced Sock-wah-kin), to immersing in Native American tradition through the Coeur d’Alene Tribe’s cultural activities offered to guests and resort visitors, the options are many. Culture activities include touring a 17th Century Mission that the Tribe built (now a museum), eating authentic Native American foods, hiking ancestral homelands, learning how to weave baskets and create beaded bracelets, and much more.
