Boiseans often brag about being able to golf and ski in the same day and be home in time for dinner. Part of what makes that recreation trifecta possible is the fact that the city of Boise owns its very own golf course. Warm Springs Golf Course is a long-standing favorite in the golf-crazed Treasure Valley, where people choose cars depending on how easy it is to get their clubs in the back. The Warm Springs location makes it not only easy to get to, but its route along the Boise River means that, come winter, it's one of the first snow-free courses in the area. Just be prepared to dodge a bit of goose poop--and when we say "a bit," we mean "a whole lot." 2495 Warm Springs Ave., Boise, 208-343-5661, warmspringsgolfcourse.com.
