Watch out for # 3, a 538 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Purple Sage is # 16, a 198 yard par-3.

As annual member, cannot beat value. Trail fees and cart storage are reasonable if you own your own cart. Friendly and accomadating staff. Four year annual member and will renew. Course well maintained.

We're passing through the Boise area and stopped to play several courses. This one was a pleasant surprise as I thought it wouldn't be much for this price. Flat layout, easy to walk, easy to play, but still challanging. Course was in great shape but the greens did show some damage from the tough winter. Highly recommended for a casual golf outing.
