Grand Opening for New Idaho Course
The Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed Osprey Meadows at Tamarack Resort will hold a grand opening in late-May, weather permitting. The course is the summer centerpiece of a new year-round resort in Donnelly, Idaho.
“The natural terrain of the land used for this course provided us a perfect design palette,” gushed the architect. “The dramatic changes in landscape and majestic views of the mountains, the meadow and Lake Cascade, qualify Osprey Meadows as one of the finest courses in the Pacific Northwest.”
The par-72 Osprey Meadows stretches across 400 acres. It features varied terrain, 73 bunkers, several water hazards and wetlands, tree-lined fairways, and five par-5s and five par-3s. The greens average 7,000 square feet in size, with an average green slope gradient of less than 3%. The course sits at 4,800 feet above sea level.
A ski/golf biathlon set for May 20 will kick off Osprey Meadows’ season. “If weather conditions allow, we’ll ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon, savoring the unique opportunity to experience two diverse sports in one day,” says Alfredo Miguel, avid golfer and chairman of Tamarack Resort.
