The History Behind the Idaho Falls Country Club.
The Idaho Falls Country Club embarked on a new and exciting program for the benefit and participation of interested, responsible people in the upper Snake River valley. In existence since 1947, and occupying a facility adjacent to the Idaho Falls Municipal Golf Course, the IFCC felt increasing pressure to move out and build and operate it’s own private golf course. Eventually an opportunity presented itself to sell the old property.
The IFCC Board of Directors appointed a committee, headed by Heber Hadlock, to investigate, explore and recommend a suitable site. The acreage selected was unbelievably favorable for a golf and country club development. The site was located 8 miles south of Idaho Falls, in and adjacent to the gently rolling foothills, with soil many feet deep and practically already contoured for a golf course. The distance for the new club was ideal being only a few minutes drive from downtown, but far enough to insure a degree of privacy.
