Circling Raven Golf Club Celebrates Father’s Day Year-Round

Resort Course Offers a Free Sleeve of Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls for Dad with Each Paid Round on June 21; However, Season-Long Stay-and-Play Package Makes Every Day Dad’s Day

(Worley, IDAHO) – Circling Raven Golf Club – the acclaimed amenity of the Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel, which is an easy, scenic drive from Spokane Airport – is offering a free sleeve of Titleist Pro V1 golf balls with the course logo on them for Dad with each regular-rate paid round on Father’s Day (June 21).

Most golf clubs would consider offering a free sleeve of expensive golf balls as ample incentive and show of appreciation to fathers. Particularly when this is in addition to the golf club’s regular, value-laden playing rates ($95 Friday – Sunday – Holidays before 2 pm; $75 Friday – Sunday – Holidays after 2 pm).

However, Circling Raven ( is not most golf clubs.

Through September 30, the stay-and-play package rates are Monday-Thursday $199, Friday-Sunday $249. These include golf rounds for two people and double occupancy/shared room (tax not included).

To clarify, this is two rounds of golf (one per person) and one shared room for two people for one night. If broken out by units – that is, purchasing each item individually – the price would be roughly $300 per person. However, with Circling Raven’s package, the cost per person is effectively $100 to $150 depending on time of week. Many Top 100 golf courses charge in excess of $200 for just an individual golf round. (Add-on rounds to the stay-and-play package are also available at a bargain price, which further enhance the available value.)

“We work hard to ensure our guests feel wowed by their experience at Circling Raven and Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel,” said CDA Casino Resort Hotel CEO David Lasarte-Meeks. “This is our ongoing priority, and the stay-and-play rates exemplify this mandate in action.”

Since its first full season (2004), the Coeur d’Alene tribally owned and operated course has exceeded industry norms, including racking up more than 40 best-in-kind awards. These include garnering awards for customer service, “Merchandiser of the Year” acclaim on multiple occasions, and Top 100 U.S. public course distinction from GOLF, Golfweek and Golf Digest magazines (out of more than 13,500 such courses nationally).

Recent honors bestowed upon the Gene Bates-designed Circling Raven include:

* Top 100 U.S. Courses You Can Play 2008-09 – GOLF Magazine
