  • Club History
      For over 75 years, Hillcrest has been creating memories and life-long friendships as a multi-generational community. Many of our members have raised their children at the club and are now watching their grandchildren enjoy the same camaraderie.

      Our tenure began in 1925 as the Idaho Country Club, becoming one of only two golf courses in the Treasure Valley. Most important for golf was Boise’s ideal climate. A mean temperature of 50 degrees insured players an all year golf city. The founders of the Idaho Country Club, Harry and John Eagleson, dreamed big with plans for this 18-hole golf course. Their plan for a world class club fell far short of their dream due to the pressure of the Great Depression.

      In 1935 a group of investors, led by attorney J.L. Eberle and realtor Ernest Day, purchased the property and created the Boise Country Club, which operated as a public facility until 1940 when Hillcrest Country Club became incorporated. By early 1960, the foundation of the modern Hillcrest Country Club was in place. Construction of the back nine had been completed, a swimming pool built, and the clubhouse had undergone considerable expansion and remodeling. Already recognized as a prestigious and elite club by those living in Southwest Idaho, during the 1960s and 1970s further facility improvements and a series of golf events hosted by Hillcrest Country Club placed it in the spotlight and helped create its reputation as one of the premier clubs in the Northwest to this day.

      No other club in Boise offers our blend of historical ambiance, recreational sports, delightful social events and exceptional service. Our myriad social events are designed to bring people together year-round, helping to make Hillcrest the center of our members’ social lives. Our 30-years association with the Korn Ferry Albertson’s Open has solidified the reputation of the course and its clubhouse as a world-class venue.
