  • What about Schweitzer Mtn DGC and/or Silver Mtn DGC??

    Hello,
    I am trying to hit all my local'ish courses and have Schweitzer (and now Silver Mt) on my radar. I was just wondering why there is not a permanent folder for these courses in the Northern Id section?

    Because none are worth playing. Have played all 3 in the past - Silver just last summer - and all are a waste of time unless you are already gonna be there. I have even tried contacting people at both to no avail. Just go play Farragut instead, you'll thank yourself. I have heard rumors of a course in Sandpoint though, been meaning to look into that.

      I heard about that same course in Sandpoint. What I don't understand is if it's public or private. Sandpoint would be an awesome town to have a course in. I can just imagine all the possibilities of risk reward shots down by the water.

        Thanks for the info... I emailed Silver and they said they have 9 holes ready to play but yeah i wasn't sure if it was quality or not. Schweitzer's website said they have both the top 9 and the bottom 9 courses up and ready to play which sounded more promising but yeah again I wasn't sure.

        Made it to Farragut for the first time a couple weekends ago and of course was blown away. Didn't have time to hit A.W.O.L. but that will be on the list for next time.

        I will update this if I make it to Silver or Schweitzer...

          When I played the top course at Schweitzer a couple years ago it cost $10 for a lift ticket up to play a crappy, poorly designed 9 hole course that was SHORT! Hole average was probably 200 feet. The bottom is much longer and more difficult but still poor design but was also free.

          Silver cost $17 to ride the Gondola up and it was 9 crappy holes on temp baskets.

          Combine your money that you would spend to play each, add a little extra and just get a Idaho State Parks Pass to go play Farragut as much as you want.
