Gozzer Ranch

A notable private golf and lake club located across from Lake Coeur d'Alene—just and 10 miles north of the airport.

Gozzer Ranch's setting is impressive enough, looking out onto the 60-square-mile Lake Coeur d'Alene in northern Idaho. 

About Gozzer Ranch & Lake Club 

More stunning is how the property's developers, Discovery Land Co., have kept the whole place rustic and in low profile. The 700-acre land plan includes a Tom Fazio-designed golf course that snuggles easily into the native contours. 

Gozzer Ranch Accomodations 

Long views of the lake and of the surrounding Coeur d'Alene Mountains are unimpeded, thanks to a relaxed residential envelope: only 266 homesites (each three-quarters to one acre) plus 90 cottages and lakeshore lodges.

Gozzner Ranch Golf Courses

At a base elevation of 2,500 feet above sea level, the golf ball travels a long way here. The par-72 course, ranging from 7,237 yards down to 5,100 yards, incorporates native prairie grasses in the roughs and dramatic long views-including infinity-edge looks behind greens into the Wild West. Every few holes, there's a welcome distraction—well-stocked food cabins, replete with premium cheeses, meat, and liqueurs.

Gozzer Ranch sits across the lake from downtown Coeur d'Alene and is accessible via a ferry that runs every hour or so. Too bad the ferry also runs back to town. Here's a place you'd like to be stranded for a weekend or a summer.
