About The Club

The Hayden Lake Country Club is a member-owned club rich in history and tradition. The Club is dedicated to maintaining its strong tradition by providing first class recreation, cuisine, and hospitality facilities to all members. 

Today, Club facilities include an 18 hole golf course, three hole practice course, driving and chipping range, pickleball and tennis courts, a private marina and swimming dock, eight hotel rooms, six cabanas, a spacious clubhouse with renown dining opportunities, and the Red House, our casual, sports bar home to shuffleboard, ping-pong, two state-of-the-art golf simulators, and more.  

Once a favorite gathering place for the Coeur d’Alene Indian Tribe, the Club location on the shores of Hayden Lake was originally the site of the Bozanta Tavern (Bozanta is an Indian word meaning "meeting place by the lake"). J.C. Olmsted, of the distinguished Brookline, Massachusetts Firm of landscape architects who designed New York’s Central park, was brought out to plan the grounds. The lakeside resort was designed in 1907 by Kirtland Cutter, the leading Northwest architect of the era. In 1927, ownership of the tavern was transferred from the Inland Empire Railroad to a group of Spokane and Coeur d’Alene businessmen. It then became known as The Hayden Lake Country Club, and today is regarded as one of the premier clubs in the Western United States.

Since its founding, the club has experienced a colorful past. We have hosted a sitting President (William Howard Taft), served as the location for a silent film and functioned as the officers’ quarters for Farragut Naval Base on Lake Pend Oreille during World War II. The HLCC golf course, having been completed in 1912, was the first 18 hole layout in Idaho and has continued to be the mainstay since the turn of the century.

Each year, we evaluate our membership needs and use member suggestions to enhance our programs and activities. Our programs allow you to focus on entertainment and activities for the whole family while our staff provides you and your guests with exceptional service. We are proud to offer a beautiful setting with a casual atmosphere where you and your family can grow, socialize, and entertain.

The club membership is as diverse as its history and heritage. From native sons to recent retirees to a generation of successful families, HLCC is a home away from home to all Club members and their guests. There are several membership options available including Stock (full privileges), Junior Golf, and Social. We trust that you will find one that is just right for you and your family.

We look forward to welcoming you to our magnificent club,
