Three scenic courses await golfers at the world-class Prairie Club in the sand hills south of Valentine near Merritt Reservoir

The Prairie Club is a world-class links style golf club south of Valentine. It has two 18-hole courses and a 10-hole course along the Snake River. The “Dunes” course consists of dramatic changes in elevation, vast bunkers and breathtaking panoramic views. Canyons and the remains of an ancient ponderosa forest are elements making the “Pines” course an epic experience for golfers. Dining, a golf shop and overnight accommodations including four-bedroom cabins overlooking Snake River Canyon are available.

Preference for lodging and tee times go to members but one course is designated for public play each day. “Our mission is to touch the soul of the golfer,” said Paul Schock, The Prairie Club’s developer. “This is a place where men and women have always chased their dreams: buffalo, antelope, summering ponies, vast herds of beef cattle and, now, a little white ball.” (888) 402-1101.
