TAMARACK — The Osprey Meadows Golf Course at Tamarack Resort is closed. An economic element for the Donnelly area has been mired in legal proceedings for a while. Now, KTVB has learned the golf course will not open this season.

Golf Digest ranked Osprey Meadows as No. 1 in its survey of America’s Best New Public Courses $75 and Over in 2006. And just last year, Golf Digest listed it as #37 in its ranking of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses.

However, as of right now, the course is closed and there are no operating plans for this summer, according to Tamarack Municipal Association (TMA), the master owner’s association at Tamarack Resort.

TMA has been operating Osprey Meadows Golf Course for the last three seasons. TMA says it managed and operated the course at the request of the course’s owner West Mountain Golf LLC (WMG), who could no longer afford to do so.

However, WMG’s main creditor, Retirement Security Plan & Trust (RSPT), is suing TMA over $800,000 for rent and taxes for its management of the course for the last three years.
TMA had said earlier this year the cost of litigation, among other things, created too much of a burden for them. As a result, TMA announced it would be handing over golf course operations to RSPT in April 2015 with a chance for the creditor to operate the course.

In a statement, Tim Flaherty, executive director of TMA, said, “We remain optimistic that the involved parties will again seek someone to operate the golf course in the future, but, at this time, we want to let everyone know that there are no operating plans for this summer. We will keep you updated on golf course operations as they become available.”

The attorney for RSPT was unavailable for comment.

KTVB will keep you posted if we hear from them and the fate of Osprey Meadows at Tamarack.

VANCOUVER, BC (April 21, 2015) – Replay Resorts announces Brad Larsen as new resort General Manager for Tamarack Resort in Idaho. Brad has held roles in ski resort leadership for more than a decade, and has a wealth of marketing and sales experience from prominent resorts throughout the United States. Most recently Brad was Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Telluride Ski Resort, and previously served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine. Brad’s background includes involvement with operations and lodging departments, including a post with Intrawest at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia.

“I’m both honored and excited to join the Replay Resorts team. Tamarack Resort has great potential to thrive as a winter and summer destination, and I truly believe this location has a bright future” said Brad Larsen.

Brad will relocate from Colorado to Idaho with his family, and is keen on being introduced to the communities surrounding Tamarack, and playing an integral role in the evolution of Tamarack Resort. In his role as resort General Manager, Brad is responsible for resort operations and real estate development and marketing.

“We are extremely pleased to have Brad join our team and believe that he will be a great asset to our efforts in leading the turnaround at Tamarack and a welcome addition to our team in Idaho” said David Hill, Managing Director of Replay Resorts.


Last month, in March, New TR Acquisitions Co. LLC (NEWTRAC), the owner of Tamarack Resort, announced Replay Resorts would assume overall operational management for the resort, except for golf operations, effective May 1, 2015, replacing the Tamarack Municipal Association (TMA), the homeowners’ association that stepped in to manage day-to-day ski operations in 2010.
