Yellow Pine Golf Course

Yellow Pine boasts the most challenging 18-hole course in Idaho. Elk have the right of way on the un-fairways. The first 9 holes were laid out by John Hansen and “Rockslide” – by hurling a softball to mark the next hole! Those first 9 holes were refined and 9 more added over the years, by club pros John Hansen and Bud Boyd. There are two annual golf tournaments!


The tiny village of Yellow Pine is an unincorporated community in Valley County, central Idaho. In the past decade, its winter population has fluctuated from the low 20s to the low 40s.

Driving Directions

There are 3 ways to get to the Yellow Pine Festival. The route you choose may be impacted by the type of vehicle you will be driving. If you have not been here before, please do not underestimate the mountain roads. The speed limits and corner markings are for real. We want you to get here safely.

DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS – many of the roads back here have not been updated for years. Your GPS may try to send you up a 4WD trail (once was a road) that will get you stuck.

This information is not intended to scare you away; you need to have an understanding of what it takes to get here.  Most folks who haven’t been here before are surprised by the remoteness. Regardless of which route you choose, please take your time and enjoy the trip.
