Circling Raven Golf Club, Coeur d’Alene Tribe Join

Brand Initiative Promotes Native American Golf & Culture Travel Experiences today announces that Circling Raven Golf Club – an amenity of Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel that is tribally owned and operated by the Coeur d’Alene’s – has partnered with the Native American Golf & Culture travel website.

“Circling Raven ranks among the finest courses in the United States,” said Dan Shepherd, principal. “Because the Coeur d’Alene Tribe offers extensive cultural experiences that complement the casino resort, golf course and other amenities, it’s ideally suited to benefit from the website, its branding program, and the travel package sales leads.”

Native American courses are most often pristine, with no surrounding development. As the Creator intended. Native American courses reflect tribal culture and traditions. Cultural assets include tribal art, pow wows, history, food, and more. The golf is superb, as are the affiliated hotels, resorts, casinos and cultural immersion. However, they’ve never been branded collectively.

“Native American Golf & Culture Travel and offer long-overdue marketing cohesion, a way for our unique tribes and properties to harness the powerful overall brand we share,” said Laura Stensgar, Director of Public Relations/Cultural Tourism at Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel in Worley, Idaho, 50 minutes from Spokane (WA) International Airport. “We believe the brand marketing program and website will drive more people and groups that stay longer with us, spend and experience more, and take unforgettable memories home with them.”

Circling Raven is an 18-hole course routed through 632 acres of pristine Palouse country. With no surrounding development, this award-winning Gene Bates championship design pairs ingenious holes with stunning scenery and solitude. Many who play the course, which includes a first-class golf shop and excellent restaurant with bar, claim it as an immediate member of their Top 5 all-time golf experiences.

Golf is just the start of the leisure options at Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel, which is currently renovating its casino with a planned Spring 2019 unveiling. The full-service spa, restaurants, retail and coffee shops, and spacious rooms with inspiring Native American décor also beckon.  Following are a few cultural experiences the Coeur d’Alene’s offer visitors and resort guests:

·         Stories, Dance and Tribal Cuisine Package – Experience true tribal hospitality while enjoying traditional storytelling, dance and local tribal cuisine. 

·         Ancestral Lands Package – Experience the beauty, history and importance of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe’s ancestral lands.
