Welcome To Coeur D’Alene!

This is probably the best golf course I have ever played.

And it’s home to the world’s ONLY floating-island green!

Golf is an honest man’s sport.

I pride myself on being honest.  I don’t take mulligans, and I don’t believe in “gimme” putts.

So with that in mind, I’m going to make two disclosures about the above video:

1) I three-putted that green.
2) That video was my second-take, after I put my first shot in the water.

I ended up with a triple-bogey

The island green is a bit of a novelty.

We pulled up to the tee box at the island green 14th hole, and there were two foursomes ahead of us, and thus we waited 45 minutes to hit.  Once we hit, we took the boat over, putted, and took the boat back.  By the time we hit our tee shots on the 15th hole, it had been well over an hour since we finished #13, and we lost all rhythm.

I shot a whopping 98 on this course, and followed up with an 83 two days later when I was back “home” in Victor, Idaho.

The Coeur D’Alene course is brutal, and humbling.  It was borderline unfair.

If you’re a golfer, you’ve got to play it just to say you did.  The island green is fun, and it’s highly original.  The course is in impeccable shape, and it’s among the most scenic courses I’ve ever played.  There are some very unique holes, and more sand traps than I’ve ever seen.

But it’s very, very humbling.  Very…

Back tomorrow with a look at some real estate in Coeur D’Alene!

    Excellent balance during and after your swing. This video proves you can get good mileage and consistency out of a compact stroke.
