Map of the River Course
"The River Course, designed by Hurdzan-Fry, is an eco-sensitive marvel that skirts bike paths, wetlands and the Snake River on the front nine before ascending to higher ground on the back, where the views of the Gore Range and Continental Divide are spectacular - and the 200-foot drop at the par-four 16th is dizzying."
Golf Magazine, February 2002
