Golf is considered a gentlemen's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition.

Nestled amid the Lewis-Clark Valley's rolling hills and serpentine Snake and Clearwater Rivers, Bryden Canyon's 6,359-yard, par 71 course poses an intermediate challenge for both golfers and cup-and-string phone conversationalists. Sparkling ponds lap at the banks of the course's bookending greens, ensnaring rogue balls in its watery depths, where they are used as game pieces by the course's hungry, hungry hippos. As the cleat-clad chip, drive, and putt their way through 18 holes dotted with devilish sand traps and howitzer-lined bunkers, cunning eyes might catch glimpses of deer, coyote, and mountain goats as they steal into the mist surrounding the grounds.
Bryden Canyon Golf Course
Hemmed into the rippling hills of Lewiston, Bryden Canyon Golf Course was established in 1974. Golfers of all experience levels can find a challenge, especially on the skill-testing par 4 holes and the risk-rewarding par 5's. Away from the course, visitors can stock up on gear and friendly advice at the pro shop. They can also refuel their tanks at the bar and grill and prepare for their next round by taking part in the facility's camps, clinics, and private lessons.
