Coeur d’Alene, ID– The Saw Blade Invitational Golf Scramble, held by Idaho Forest Group (IFG) and Alta Forest Products, was recently held in-person again after being cancelled last year due to COVID lockdowns. Due to that cancellation, this year’s game marks the seventh annual event.

IFG is a growing family-owned company, operating six sawmills and a finger-joint facility located in North Idaho and Montana, that values employees and holds a reputation for high-quality products. The company is now one of America’s largest lumber producers, with capacity of well over 1 billion board feet per year and markets around the globe.

Alta Forest Products, headquartered in Chehalis, WA, offers multiple lines of fencing products, from pre-stained Whitewood to Premium Treated and Western Red Cedar, according to the company’s website, and is one of the largest fence manufacturers in North America.
