The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce welcomed the Idaho Club golf resort with a ribbon cutting on Monday, May 8.
The Idaho Club invited members of the media, area developers and elected officials to play an informal scramble on what turned out to be a beautiful day on the links.
“We want everyone to know that we’re doing our best to get the Idaho Club back and healthy again,” said Bill Haberman, co-owner of the Idaho Club.
Renderings were also on display, depicting what could be a future clubhouse to replace the iconic clubhouse that was destroyed in a fire in 2008.
Idaho Club golf professional Randy Fischer also reminded those in attendance that the Idaho Club was semi-private, meaning that member play only takes place in the morning before 10:30 a.m. After this time, the course is open to public play and is open for another great year of golf.
The course was in great shape for early May, thanks to the diligent work from longtime superintendent Tim Heeney and his wife Nancy.
