Ben Stadler built Shadow Valley's public course to be a "working man's country club," opening the first nine holes in 1973. The second nine were added in 1983.

And the course has stayed true to that vision - impressing and retaining customers with its service, commitment to improvements and playing conditions.

This is Shadow Valley's fifth Best of Treasure Valley win in six years in a highly competitive category.

"I like how they treat people. I like that Shadow Valley cares - they care what you think," said Cheri Stimpson of Eagle, who is the president of the Shadow Valley Ladies Golf Association. "The staff is fantastic. The cooks are really good. Their food is always good. I like that they will try to work with you, getting you in on a tee time, if they don't have anything open. ... We do a survey with all the ladies. We go through them and point out everything people want to improve, and they do their best to try to do that. Your voice doesn't go unheard."
