McCall, Idaho — a town with a population of only 3,351 — is where you can find this week’s Course of the Week.

Whitetail Club, designed by Roger Packard and two-time U.S. Open winner Andy North, is one of Golfweek‘s Best Resort Courses for 2016 and one of America’s 100 Greatest Courses, according to Golf Digest.

“Living in the mountain community of McCall, Idaho is heaven,” says Rick Mooney, vice president of maintenance and development, Shore Lodge and Whitetail Club. “It’s just a beautiful mountain resort town … you get all four seasons.”

The private golf course is an 18 hole, par-72 course. Its website features a hole-by-hole course tour that you can check out here. Whitetail has a variety of practice environments for golfers who are looking to refine their game, including a driving range, putting greens and chipping greens.

The clubhouse is equipped with a premium pro shop, swing-training equipment and analysis tools, locker rooms, bag storage, restaurant, lounge and outdoor patio.

“(Whitetail members) expect the same quality conditions they would get in Palm Springs or Atlanta,” Mooney says, “we just have a mountain environment and a short growing season, so we have to fit a lot in, in a very little time.”
