When people think of The Golf Club at Black Rock, the first thing that comes to mind is world class private golf. And rightfully so. Architect Jim Engh has crafted 18 completely unique holes through wooded forests, across prairies and wetlands and around natural ledges, towering waterfalls and basalt rock formations from which Black Rock gets its name. From the grand front entry to the private wine room there is no detail left to chance. Eric Hedlund with his distinctive style and experience with golf clubhouse design has selected every detail with an ample use of native material giving the feel of a grand lodge and unpretentious luxury.

"Aesthetically speaking, Black Rock has few equals. Perched high above Lake Coeur d'Alene, the course breathes excitement. From the rolling terrain, prairie-style landscape, cascading water falls, black rock cliffs, elevation changes and beautiful views, Black Rock is a scenic marvel."



Golf Digest's "Top 100"

Sometimes you forget what the real world is. It awaits in the tall forests of North Idaho, overlooking one of the most spectacular lakes created by nature, graced by one of the most magnificent golf courses designed by man. Black Rock is a world apart from other residential communites... a world all your own.  


The Black Rock Community was established as an exclusive, private gated residential community. Privacy, security, and safety were and still are very important considerations for owners in choosing to purchase and establish their residences in Black Rock.


The Golf Club at Black Rock was established as private, members only club with significant restrictions relative to who might become a member and with exclusive play rights on the Black Rock golf course. Since the club and golf course are private, and located within the Black Rock community, which itself is a private gated community, maintaining property owner’s rights of privacy, security, and safety access becomes a cooperative effort.


Each purchaser of a residence or homesite in the Community may apply for a Golf Membership or a Social Membership in The Golf Club at Black Rock upon execution of his or her Purchase Agreement. If membership is not applied for upon execution of the Purchase Agreement, purchaser may apply for membership at a later date only if one is available, and only upon payment of the Membership Fee which is in effect at the time the membership is acquired. The number of memberships in each category is limited and available memberships in each category will generally be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.


Ownership of a residence or homesite does not give any vested right or easement, prescriptive or otherwise, to use the Club facilities, or to acquire a membership in the Club and does not grant any ownership or membership interest in the Club or the Club facilities.

As many observers have commented, Engh has a way with Mother Nature, taking what she gives him and showing it to its best advantage. And nowhere is that more evident than at The Golf Club at Black Rock.

This area is defined and dominated by legendary Lake Coeur d'Alene and seemingly endless woods, wetlands, prairies, and a mountainous terrain that is punctuated by monumental outcroppings of black basalt rock, all of which Engh has seamlessly incorporated into this jaw dropping design.
