Coeur d’Alene is a spectacularly beautiful summertime destination.

Situated on a brilliant turquoise-colored lake in the Idaho Panhandle, Coeur d'Alene is a spectacularly beautiful summertime destination. The town rests directly adjacent to a 25-mile-long lake and is surrounded by heavily wooded areas and the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. In lakeside Coeur d'Alene, you'll find a multitude of art galleries, boutiques, dining options, and guided adventures catering directly to visitors. The lake itself and the surrounding area are an outdoor-lover's paradise, with activities ranging from sightseeing to whitewater rafting. We'll be staying at The Coeur d'Alene, centrally located in the downtown area and resting on the shore of the lake. A round of golf at the resort's iconic course begins with a ride in a mahogany boat. With the resort as your base, you can easily stroll along the lakeside, peruse the downtown area, book an adventure in the surrounding wilderness, or relax and enjoy rejuvenating spa treatments.

Custom-Planned Local Activities To Complement Your Conference

You deserve a break! That’s why we carefully select and plan premium after-class Group Activities for conference attendees and their guests. After all, all work and no play is never a good plan!

Since its opening in 1991 to sensational reviews and multiple awards, the Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course quickly established itself as a premier destination, debuting as the #11 resort golf course in the nation. It also received an astounding #1 ranking for "Beauty and Esthetics" by Golf Digest. Designer Scott Miller's vision was to create a golf course that offered a stimulating round of golf in a park-like environment, and he hit a home run here. The result is a course whose fairways play from tee to green on lush carpets of grass accented with beds of brilliant red geraniums, acres of fragrant junipers, and mountain water challenges. The course's famous floating green, which is movable, is one of the most recognizable golf holes in the world.

Participants will pay the course directly. Price includes tax, gratuity, green fees, shared cart, unlimited floating practice balls, personalized bag tag, one forecaddie per foursome, and a sports massage on the practice range. Golfers will take a complimentary water taxi from the resort to the course. Gratuity for forecaddie not included, customary is $20 per player.

Clubs are $63 to rent. Options include Taylor Made or Mizuno, left or right-handed, men’s or women’s, regular flex or stiff flex shaft. Please contact the course at 208-667-4653 to reserve clubs.

Smokey Joe's at Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater

They wrote for Elvis & Dion, The Coasters & The Drifters. They wrote Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, Stand By Me, & On Broadway. Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock 'n' roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized '50's setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions. Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs of the 50's & 60's ever recorded, SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE isn't just great pop music - it's compelling musical theatre that will have you leaping to your feet.

Price includes tax. Transportation is not included and is on your own.
