Set on an elevated, forested peninsula that juts into the eastern flank of Lake Coeur d’Alene, Gozzer Ranch Golf and Lake Club is spectacular. Designed by Tom Fazio against a distant mountain canvas, Gozzer Ranch opened for play in 2007 with its trademark shaggy bunkers and black rock outcroppings. This is undoubtedly one of Fazio’s best modern creations that will give Shadow Creek a run for its money.
Fazio paid meticulous attention to detail when fashioning Gozzer Ranch to protect the land from erosion. The 7,226-yard layout is routed sympathetically across expansive terrain that boasts breathtaking elevation changes and many notable holes, all of which could be considered signature… or in the words of Fazio: “These epic views stop you in your tracks—you almost don't want to hit the ball because the view is so spectacular.”
Two driveable par fours, a plunging par three and another one shotter that was blasted through rocks, tough, long and scenic par fours coupled with short and long par fives make Gozzer Ranch one of those courses that you simply want to play over and over again. It’s a veritable cracker.
As for the visitor experience, you’ll not find a stuffy attitude within an old-school clubhouse environment as the club exists as a casual place for members to relax, hang out with family and friends, and generally have a good time. And out on the course, you’ll find a “comfort station” every few holes, where you can have ice cream, drinks and snacks – now they’re surely worth the effort to befriend a member to play here?
