Jug Mountain Ranch
McCall, ID – 6/29/18
Perfect size clubhouse with
Full bar, many regional & local beer options on tap. Snacks and hotdogs for the turn also a full restaurant with great food.
Bathrooms on course are very clean. There was not a beverage cart out for our round. We teed off at 3pm so a little disappointing on a Friday evening.
Very expensive privately-owned course. Summer weekend green fees $75 riding. They do have a twilight rate after 3pm, $56 riding.
Practice facilities: A
Large driving range and practice facility. They have a set-up that is a little unusual. As you drive into the course, you arrive at the practice facility first. It has a separate parking lot where you park and practice. After you are done, you get back into your car and drive to the clubhouse. Not a bad thing, just different. ?
Staff friendliness: A
Since we were playing a twilight round, there was only one person we encountered. He was very nice and let us tee off a little early.
Golf Carts: B
Normal carts, very clean and comfortable. These carts had ball and club cleaners on them. Also, plenty of sand and seed, a must for hackers!
Tee Boxes: A-
Above average tee boxes. Mostly flat and in great shape. All tees had adequate yardage labeled.
Sand is very nice and consistent throughout
Fairways are in perfect condition overall, some rough spots due to the harsh winters in McCall. Fairways are big, and medium on slope. A couple holes slope comes into play, but for the most part they are flat.
Above average greens for consistency on this course. They are well taken care with a medium speed. They were very soft and held approach shots nicely. I did not find a green with a ball mark other than my own. Medium on the undulation. There were 2 greens that had winter damage that did come in to play.
This course is higher on the difficulty scale. Mountain course with pine trees dense foliage throughout. This comes in to play on almost every hole.
This course is located in the Payette National Forest and has wildlife watching and judging your golf game! We witnessed deer on two holes and a fox on another. This course is mountain golf at its finest.
Overall Rating: A
Awesome course! We give it an A rating overall. Mostly because of the location, views, and conditions.
