Nice track.

Front 9 is rather generic but the back 9 is well done and quite scenic. It's a fun course to play and a good value. I would definitely return if in the area again.

Great course - our complaint was 5:15 round. A group of 4 in front that took forever on tee boxes and the greens. 3 holes open in front. 2 groups behind us quit we would definitely try this course again though!

Bring lots of balls!

Priest Lake is one of the best kept secrets in North Idaho this lake is known as the "Crown Jewel "This golf course is just as beautiful as the lake, but beware lots of water everywhere remember to bring lots of balls the front 9 has nice open fairways And the greens are duable But when you get to the back 9 that's when it becomes a very difficult course to manage make sure you' have plenty of balls when you get to the back 9 because you're gonna need them I would say this course is not for beginners. Overall me and my brother had a great time on this course ,make sure you picked up a course book that detailed every hole.

Worth the drive

Pretty well maintained course, good layout. A little quirky to get to the range, but other than that, easy to navigate. Staff very friendly and helpful. Didnt eat so cant comment on that.

Its a bit of a drive from SP, but its a pretty drive which makes it enjoyable.

Fun to play on vacation

Every time we camp at Priest Lake we play Priest Lake Golf Course. Driver isn’t necessary on most of the holes, but it’s pretty fun target golf, especially the scenic back 9.

Excellent Mountain Course

We always come here when in the area. The course was not busy during our early morning round. Challenging holes and pin placements especially the back nine. A cart is a definite must. Well maintained. The clubhouse could use a refresh.

HOT day! Still a great round.

We play this course at least once a year when we are in the area for vacation. . Fair pricing. A tight mountain course with some quirky holes. Be prepared to lose two sleeves but u might find just as many..

Priest Lake...Will Play Again

Conditions were excellent. Staff friendly and helpful. No delays with pace of play. Weather was warm and sunny. Front 9 was fun. The back nine was challenging with water and swamp on almost every hole. Can't wait to come back and try it again. Just remember to bring lots of "water" balls and accuracy is most important on the back nine.
