Sparks will fly this August as the premier couples’ tournament in the Pacific Northwest returns to Whitetail Club!

After the success of our Ladies Member Guest and Men’s Invitational tournament, Whitetail Club members, their invited guests and guests of Shore Lodge will reunite on the golf course and rekindle their spark for competition!

While most clubs host annual men’s and women’s tournaments, Whitetail Club’s Payette Cup is unique as one of the rare couple’s golf tournaments. This unparalleled event, played on Whitetail Club’s award-winning golf course consists of three days of exciting competition and two nights of unforgettable social events.

On August 24th – 26th, contestants will take their skills to the course to redefine the term “Power Couple” as they aim to bring home the coveted cup at the 12th Annual Payette Cup Couples Invitational.

Want to take a swing at it? As we mentioned, this can’t-miss event is also open to Shore Lodge guests, allowing you to join the action and get an inside look at some of Whitetail Club’s signature amenities. See below for more details.
