The Coeur d’Alene golf course in Idaho is known for many upscale specialty touches. For instance, custom luxury golf carts enjoy heated seats, tilt steering wheels, chrome wheels, and more.
This course is situated in a gorgeous setting with Lake Coeur d’Alene views on almost every hole. It’s not just upscale, it’s an experience and one of the most-talked-about experiences is the floating green.
Hole 14 – The Only Movable Floating Island Green
The green of the 14th hole at Coeur d’Alene Resort was built basically on a barge system. The structure and contours were added afterwards. It can be moved from about 100 yards out to as far as 270 yards. Steel cables attached to the lake floor keep this 15,000 square foot green in place.
Beneath the green is a control room, that makes moving the it as easy as setting the dial. This unique feature lets the course move the green in for a woman’s tournament and out when the big hitters are coming to town.
Golfers can take a maximum of two tries to land safely on the island green before taking a drop on the green if necessary.
