Golf Course History
As I was looking around our clubhouse the other day I saw a plaque on the wall in the lobby entrance that I’ve glanced at a time or two but to which I hadn’t really paid much attention. Looking at it in more detail I thought that maybe others might be interested in the message it conveys. It reads…
“The Coeur d’Alene Public Golf Club was the first public golf course in Kootenai
This public golf course is owned by a non-profit corporation in which there are no stockholders. It is operated by a membership restricted to residents of Kootenai County, Idaho, who meet the qualifications prescribed by the Bylaws of the Corporation and are elected to membership by the Corporate Board of Directors. There are nine directors duly elected by the membership at an annual meeting, who serve
The purpose is to promote the game of golf, to operate the course and club house for the use of the general public, and to provide social and recreational facilities for the citizens of Kootenai County as a charitable corporation.”
What a cherished history we have here for those who are fortunate enough to be a part of this wonderful course. It is incumbent upon each of us to protect and further enhance this jewel in the heart of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. If you are already a voting member, come out and participate in the decisions needed to keep it alive, vibrant, and challenging. If you are not yet a voting member, all it takes is a simple application with some minimal requirements submitted to the Board of Directors for their approval. Do it today! Help further the goals some far-sighted individuals had over 50 years ago to make the Coeur d’Alene Public Golf Club one of the finest “…social and recreational facilities…” not only for Kootenai County, but for the entire northwest.
