Good Course for an introduction to the sport
Pros: Great course to introduce someone to the game.
Wide open holes.
9 holes makes for a quick play.
Flat easy to walk
Good for a lunchtime round.
Close proximity to a playground on hole 2.
Other Thoughts: Played this course at lunch today. Really nice park, brand new and has many amenities not usually found at the public courses I play. I could see how it could get busy at times and to be honest I feel like the course plays pretty close to other shared resources (ramadas, sidewalks, playgrounds, and private property) Will play again.

Well Done Pitch and Putt
3 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: City of Spokane Valley spent some time and money on good baskets, nicely laid tees, and now have signs with hole, par, and distances. There is also a board by the gazebo with basic rules, scorecards with maps, and pencils.
Park has nice amenities including nice bathrooms and one of the fanciest small playgrounds I've seen. Park is very new and with the trees planted should grow into a great place to throw a practice round or introduce a noob to the sport.
Cons: This course is SHORT! And par set by city is suitable only for the newest of the new. I entered White tees with par based on PDGA guidelines and all holes under 150 ft are par 2s. Small park makes for tight course and Pin for 2 is way too close to kids playground, Park was somewhat busy and will probably become worse as playground becomes popular.
Some holes are very close to fences bordering on private property and we are asked not to cross them.
Other Thoughts: Playground is so cool kids are less likely to be running around on course. There is some larger open space to practice drives and can throw from tee 1 to pin 4 or tee 7 to pin 9 for longer safari holes if course not busy.
I generally don't like 9 hole courses but this is an ok little local one, well appointed.

Thumbs up 9 hole..
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Excellent 9 hole course for beginners (broke my wife of nasty throwing habits) and working on approach and putt for advanced/pro players. Concrete pads, signage is now up and tee pads are numbered. Play the whole course barefoot..
Cons: Basket 2 is too close to kids play area. Bad hyzer = injured kid...
Other Thoughts: Again, Basket 2 needs to be moved directly south 40 - 50 feet to avoid kids! Other than that, killer little 9 hole for the beginners as well as approach and putt for experienced players. I like this one better than Bluegrass in Hayden, Id. Stop by and check it out!

Decent pitch n putt
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Park is new.
-Nice cement teepads.
-Nice new baskets.
-Good for beginners.
-Nice new bathroom on-site (currently closed for season)
Cons: -No signage (just numbers on baskets).
-Several teepads are way too close to previous basket.
-A couple baskets are located dangerously close to the children's playground.
-Not much variety. Course is in a brand new park with freshly planted young trees so no obstacles at all to speak of.
-Grass seed has not taken hold yet. Course is VERY soft and muddy until grass root helps firm ground.
Other Thoughts: This is an attractive looking little 9 hole course. Its really pretty hard to call half the holes a par 3 as over half of them are ace runs for even weak arms. But it seems clear the course is for beginners and as that, it should help the sport grow.
For the size of the park, there could have been a better layout established, however the park is designed for multi-use. Therefore, the main open fields of the park look to be designed for youth soccer or football and the likes. The course is laid out around this. As a result, several teepads have been pretty much jammed right next to the previous hole. This would potentially be a problem if the course received good play on a nice day. You just could not throw until the person/group on the next tee has moved on.
I will update this review next spring/summer as soon as the park opens for regular use, the grass has (hopefully) taken hold, and the trees begin to grow. It won't fix the layout/flow of the course, but it will give it a more "real" feel I believe. Right now it feels like a skeleton, if you will.
