Pros: - Very well designed course for the lot size.
- Quite technical in its design.
- Excellent signage directing you to the next hole as well as a diagram at each tee with hole layout, distance, and any possible mandos.
- While most hole distances are not that far (longest being 335, shortest being 140, average of 227/hole) each hole is designed with much care to make you think about each throw considerably.
- Fun course decorations throughout that Stimpi has collected over the years.
- A course pro usually available to throw with you is very nice and appreciated.
- Course is very clean as it is his home and he takes great pride in it.
- Well stocked pro shop.
Cons: -Course is short. If you are looking for a place to work on your long game this is not the one.
Other Thoughts: Stimpi Ridge DGC is a very fun short, yet quite technical 18-hole course. There are actually 14 baskets on the course with 4 baskets being reused via different tee locations to make 18. A great getaway on any beautiful day where the other local private courses might be swamped with players.

Pros: Well maintained 9 hole course with multiple tees and baskets to make 18. Steve (the owner) is a great guy with a wealth of knowledge and product to get you started and he's always happy to join in and play a round or just help you out with the sport. Signage is not needed as the course is well designed and flows well from one hole to the next. Short but challenging holes make this little private course a real fun experience
Cons: Not really anything bad to say about this one except it is private and you'll need to contact Steve before heading out there to play.
Other Thoughts: Pro shop on site. Great info and great people. Thanks Steve!!!

 Fun Little Course

Pros: - The course is well groomed with nice signage showing the hole.
- Free of garbage and bottles that can be found at both of the other local courses.
- Well stocked pro shop.
- Friendly and Helpful owner (Steve)
Cons: It was tough to pick apart this course since I really like it, but the one thing I do dislike is the tee pads. Some of them are non existent and are dirt. Today while playing I was in the mud since the now had recently melted.
- Very few long holes ( if you feel the need to air it out on every hole you may want to play down river).


Other Thoughts: This course is a short course that is technically a 9 hole with alt tee pads to make it 18. It has two 300+ holes and a lot of technical shots that are fun to play. It allows you to work on your game and just have fun. This course stays pretty quit from what I am told, and you will want to call steve to get permission to play. All around fun course to play well worth the stop if you can fit it in.

Pros: Friendly owner and creator Steve will give you a tour while playing a round with you in his backyard. He has alot of discs, shirts, bags and other general disc golf equipment that is for sale at a decent price. Alot of bushes and O.B. like the street and the property lines makes your shots have to be precise. The designer has done a good job fitting so many holes in a small piece of real estate.
Cons: Well it's on a small piece of private property so long drives are no where to be found. Tee pads are primitive and signs are no where to be found but are not really needed.
Other Thoughts: This course is not far from the other 2 in Spokane and I would recommend playing those first but you should go to this one just for the challenge it will give your midrange game and it's not extremely far from the freeway.

 Private Nine Hole Course In Spokane!

Pros: Owner-Club Pro-Grounds Keeper Steve Stimpi will be glad to give you the personal tour. For those of you that have always wanted a disc golf course in your backyard, this is probably the prototype. With about 2 acres to work with Steve has created his own world here. The course plays through pine trees that Steve planted about five years ago (10-20 foot tall now), many obstacles (Steve calls it lawn art, I call it clutter, other might call it refuge, junk, worthless crap, etc.). There are tight OBs to contend with such as streets, neighbors property lines, parked cars, etc. There is a very well stocked pro shop-museum. Steve is somewhat of a disc golf historian and has a most interesting collection here.
Cons: It's private so it's somewhat short of the normal amineties such as tee pads and signs. The baskets are the temporary jobs except for the art deco chair one. The course is short and it's flat with no water except for the sprinklers.
Other Thoughts: You don't need signs. Steve will guide you and probably beat the hell of you. It's his course and he has a major HFA (Home Field Advantage). He knows every trick here, every possible route to each basket. With this being just a couple of miles south of Spokane's two other nice courses, it's worth the short drive just to visit the pro shop and stock up.
