Prior to heading for the course, enjoy a hearty breakfast at Joe Momma's in Eagle, conveniently located just minutes from Banbury Golf Course, Shadow Valley, and Highway 55. Crab cake bennies, omelettes, and chicken fried steak are just a few of the menu items designed to satisfy big appetites.
In the Valley
Begin with a round at Warm Springs Golf Course in east of downtown Boise or at Banbury, right in the heart of Eagle (both meander along the beautiful Boise River.) Or, just a few miles away is Shadow Valley, a unique, challenging course nestled in the foothills north of Boise.
If round two is part of the plan, head north on Highway 55 toward McCall. Along the way, stop for lunch at Kit’s Riverside Restaurant in Horseshoe Bend.
In the Trees
Next stop, Jug Mountain Ranch is located in McCall's East Valley, only ten minutes from downtown McCall, Payette Lake, and just 30 minutes to Brundage. Worth remembering for later: Plan a mountain bike trip to Jug Mountain Ranch for single track and double track mountain bike trails that wind through the meadows and forests at the base of Jug Handle Mountain.
Hole in One
After a day on the course, you can't go wrong with a memorable dinner at Rupert's in McCall. In the spirit of its old Idaho roots, the establishment retains a menu, an ambiance, and natural wood interior influenced by the western frontier.
Another favorite among locals is the Salmon River Brewery, also located in McCall. And since golf and beer go together like, well, golf and beer, the brewery's traditional pub fare and numerous beers on tap are a win—even if your golf score was a bit over par.
If Boise's courses are in your vicinity, visit Fork for a dining experience that follows a ‘farm to fork’ approach. This means locally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients are prepared to enhance the natural nuances of their flavors.
