Soda Springs another Pokey-area gem
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Pocatello and Eastern Idaho have terrific DG courses. This one, while 45 minutes SE of Pokey, is absolutely a must-play. Front nine is wind-swept lowlands/grass, circumnavigating playing fields, wending through bog/spring-creek and willow-choked bottomland. Back none progresses into the hexagonal columnar basalt that is endemic to southern Yellowstone ecosystem... lots of aspen copses, sage, basalt rock, parklands, larger spring creeks. Must-play list, , like Freeman Park in Idaho Falls. I've had the rpiviledge of playing Waller park , La Mirada, Solimar, Coyote Point, Diamond X , and this is absolutely as delightful Bring a fly rod and make a trip out of it!
Cons: Highly recommend playing BEFORE grasses and insects take over... Mid-to-late April though end of May are optimal. Biting insects in eastern idahoo in June and July are legendary , blood sucking, and suck-y.
As always in the weedy rockies, watch your dfisk hoit the ground, and make a note of a specific shrub, tree, or other landmark to find it. Bright colored discs in durable plastics are where it is at, leave the tie-dye at home..

Soda Springs ID
Pros: You wouldn't expect such a well put together course. Par 64, with multiple par five and par four holes. Located in a beautiful part of Idaho, secluded but easy to get to. This course also includes a lot of OB, bunkers, alternate tee pads, a lot of challenging elevation change, and a raised basket, with a wide veriety of shots. Installed by a professional course designer .
Cons: Due to its location, I don't think this course gets a whole lot of traffic, the rough is REALLY rough. safe play is rewarded.
Other Thoughts: Lava Hot Springs, (also got a new course there in 08) is 30 minutes west, its a great town to visit!
