The Gold River Golf Course is located a short distance downstream of The Lodge and offers a relaxing and challenging golf experience. Surrounded by snow capped mountains, Gold River Golf Course sits amidst a thick vibrant forest of hemlock, pine, red cedar and Douglas fir. Half the fun of playing this course is in the spectacular scenery one encounters.
Of Gold River's many good holes, its 1st must be considered its best. At 380 yards this par four doglegs left and follows the contours of the river, which provides both a scenic backdrop and a dangerous hazard. At nine holes, guests often have time to fit in a round after a days fishing and before a spectacular meal back at The Lodge.
