Circling Raven Golf Club continues to change that type of thinking, since there isn't anything dreary, weak or weary about this course.
The beautiful Circling Raven Golf Club in Worley, Idaho is celebrating ten great years of golf this weekend with their "Decade of Raven" Tournament that will be held on Saturday.
And there will be no tapping at what we will call your "chamber door."
In honor of the 10-year anniversary celebration, Circling Raven is turning back the clock.
Greens fees and menu items will be priced the way they were in 2003.
“This event provides a unique opportunity to show our appreciation to the many guests and golfers who have supported the course and the Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort during the last 10 years,” states Circling Raven Director of Golf Tom Davidson.
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
Fear not, this tournament will be fun.
The tournament is charging a reasonable $65 entry fee that includes cart and all the practice range time you want or need. There will also be contests and giveaways throughout the day as part of the celebration.
Recently, Circling Raven was mentioned on Golf Digest’s biennial “America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses 2013-2014” list. The course has also earned many other honors and awards over the last decade.
