Idaho casino buys Washington course

Updated: July 30, 2022

One of the most recent entries into the Tribal golf course ownership is the Nez Pearce Indian Tribe of Idaho, which bought the Clarkston Golf and Country Club three years ago.

One of the first changes the tribe made was to change the name to Red Wolf Golf Club. The course sits adjacent to the Snake River and features a walkable 18-hole course that has hosted some big-time tournaments through the years including the Pac-12 championships and several PNGA championships.

The course is not long by today’s standards but plays long than the listed yeardage of 5,400 – 6,700 yards. Tree-lined fairways, 4 ponds, numeous bunkers and super fast greens will keep golfers focused on their game. The course is playable year-round due to Clarkston’s low elevation of 738 feet above sealevel.

The Nez Pearce Tribe also owns and operates its own casino resort called the Clearwater River Casino and Lodge, which is located in Lewiston. This gives the Nez Pearce Tribe a casino resort in Idaho (Lewiston) and a golf course in Washington (Clarkston).

There are stay and play packages available, including a deal for $174 for one night lodging, two rounds of golf and a cart.
