Circling Raven Golf Club (Worley, ID) Named No. 1 Course in Idaho by GOLF Magazine

Amenity of Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Once Again Ranks Among the Top-100 Courses in America 

(WORLEY, ID) – Circling Raven Golf Club – an amenity of the Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort Hotel, located a short drive from Spokane International Airport – was ranked the No. 1 public course in Idaho by GOLF Magazine this week in its biennial state-by-state rankings. Circling Raven was also once again named to the magazine’s prestigious list of the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” in America.

"An honor such as this No. 1 ranking by GOLF Magazine further solidifies Circling Raven Golf Club and the newly expanded Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel as one of the best golf-and-gaming venues in North America,” said Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort Hotel CEO Dave Matheson.
Circling Raven climbed two spots in the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” in America list, landing at No. 90 out of roughly 13,500 U.S. public access courses. The GOLF Magazine rankings are available online and will be featured in the September 2012 print edition of the magazine.

Owned and operated by the Coeur d'Alene Tribe and designed by course architect Gene Bates, Circling Raven has collected more than 45 “Best-Of” rankings since its first full season in 2004, including being named the No. 1 course in Idaho by Golfweek and ranked on Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” list. Circling Raven and Director of Golf Tom Davidson were also honored as PGA National Merchandiser of the Year in the Resorts Category in 2010.

Golfers can play the award-winning course this season, with stay-and-play packages starting at $199 for two people.  Details, availability and upgrade options can be found at
Last year, the Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel completed its seventh major expansion since opening in 1993. The project added two wings of upscale hotel rooms overlooking Circling Raven, a centerpiece pub area, a gourmet steakhouse, a fitness center and a 15,000 square-foot, full-service spa.
