WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?

The floating island green resonates with everyone when they hear Coeur d’Alene Resort and it serves as the very unique and attractive logo, strategically placed on thousands of merchandise items in their pro shop.

This is seriously one of the nicest shops in the world displaying the best of the best logoed products.  Racks and racks of apparel include several showcasing Antigua’s tropical blends mixed with Nike, Adidas, Puma, Under Armor, Ping, Sport Haley, Tail and Chase 54 outfits. Jamie Saddock stands out with flowing fabrics and more symmetrical designs added to the signature asymmetrical prints. A black jacket shimmers on the hanger begging to be worn on the course or anywhere in the resort and there are very special venues at this resort all with views of Lake Coeur d’Alene.

New on the scene in the pro shop are Lucky in Love, Egg Blue and Birdie Sport Australia fashions. Shoes are covered by Skechers, Puma, Nike and FootJoy to be padded by a wall of Stance socks in a multitude of fun patterns to match any personality.

A special Children’s Corner along a window sill features cute little golf sets by Garb and Wallaroo kiddos’ hats.

Crystal home accessories sparkle, all etched with the full logo – wine glasses, martini glasses with golf ball bases, decanters and more.

The shop sits above the logo island green, with a massage chair at the door for complimentary (tips of course) loosening of golfers’ joints. Connected to the shop is the Floating Green Restaurant where the chef makes sure patrons are happy. And happy they are with his cuisine, the view and the show as nervous golfers tee off to the newly renovated floating island green, then board the Putter Boat to sink their birdies or drop in the shame zone if their ball already sunk in the lake.

Many more extraordinary holes lead up to the famous 14th but it is the most memorable experience and a ton of mementos in the pro shop will carry that memory home.
