Pros: Good location and nice terrain
Cons: very repetitive, most holes are a straight 300', Many holes are way to close to other fairways/greens, several holes a good drive is within 30' of other baskets.very poor use of space.

Outstanding new course
5 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: New, Arroyo Sports baskets.
Elevation on nearly every hole
Easy to navigate with the "next tee" markers
Creative pin placement
Solid use of OB lines
Cons: No garbage cans
Some rough terrain, due to it being a newish course
A few holes have long walks to the next tee, particularly from hole 7-8
Didn't notice any places to get water for a second round
Other Thoughts: Easily the best public course in Spokane. While Highbridge and Downriver are worth playing, they both miss on several aspects that Sekani doesn't. Nearly every hole has elevation and it's combined with tight lines. You will never have the chance to let one rip without hitting your lines. That being said, you can still recover on most holes from a bad drive. You do not want to miss this course if you are traveling through like I was!

Pros: Super fun holes, with several creative basket locations. Fairly short holes, but offset due to tons of trees on several holes.
Cons: Signage is coming, but sometimes difficult to know where to throw. Some holes the weeds are really tall and difficult to find disc, even when in fairway.
Other Thoughts: One of the most fun rounds I have played in a long time. Even though holes are fairly short, the course is creative and super enjoyable!

fun course but needs work
Pros: this course has a lot of fun holes, it is somewhat difficult for a beginner, there are a couple ace runs, test yourself
Cons: this is really tall grass in lots of weeds, can be very difficult to find your disc, hole 8 and 17 can be the most difficult at this course, certain holes can be wooded
Other Thoughts: really good location in Spokane

Its just that awesome!!
Pros: Challening. lots of 250'-290' holes but the terrain and elevation changes make it remarkably difficult but to shoot under par is easy to achieve for 1000 rated players. 2 par 4's easy to birdie with the right thread shot.
Cons: Teepad on 8. You have to walk back along side the fairway of 7 to get to it. If you have bad knees then dont come play this course, lots of elevation changes. Some of the basket placements on on mossy rocks with no green. Could be a potential slipping hazard in wet conditions.

A Good Challenge
Pros: Challenge yourself at Sekani - the course isn't a walk in the park. The terrain and variety of holes requires skill to play well.
The course layout works with the wooded hillside terrain and ravines. The new baskets, and several of the unique pin placements add to the experience.
Cons: The abundant trees and brush can frustrate (us) less skilled players.

Pros: True test of golf with everything required to learn how to golf.. almost. The scenery is amazing. Baskets are amazing. Tees are excellent. Accuracy is more important than raw distance. If you can throw 400' you can compete with any player in the game.
Cons: The ground isn't clean yet. There are piles of chips and branches here and there. There are small tree stumps from clearing that can take out sandal wearers. Shots can end up in a couple different fairways. The course is very hilly so a disc can fly way past it's intended target, especially with inexperienced players throwing drivers down hills.
Other Thoughts: This is a solid workout. Bring plenty of water. Make your putts or roll-aways can be tough. No bathroom. Pack it in pack it out.

Wow it is great!

Pros: This is now the premiere course in the Inland Empire area of the Pacific Northwest if not the entire Northwest. It is both very tough but very fair. By that I mean there are no give me's and no poke and pray, but you will have to work hard to score well.
There is plenty of parking and a great practice area. The course is spread out over approximately 25 acres which gave it plenty of room so that there are no overlapping fairways and the tee and basket areas should be as safe as can be on a disc golf course. The course has a very good flow to it making it easy to follow with the aid of the "next tee" signs that are placed after every basket to follow to the next. The map is accurate and easy to follow.
There are new tee signs that really add to the course.
The course is very hilly with only 4 fairways that could be called flat. The course is covered with pines, tamarack, and some brush. All used very well to make tunnels and as effective obstacles.
You will need a variety of throws here to play well. Basket 10 was even set up specifically for a tight alley where rollers are the best throw. You are going to throw and putt uphill and downhill.With some of the most interesting pin placements ever. Nearly every fairway will give you at least 2 choices so that either a lefthand or righthand thrower can choose their poison.
Baskets 14, 17, and 18 are top of the world throws with 17a being one of the best ever holes. Putting 17 will be high risk and high reward when in the summer set up. Because of snow both 17 and 15 have alt. pin placements.
A lot of work was recently done to clean up the stubbies that are prominent in many areas. Especially on 6,7,8,12,and 13.
The course is the first in the world to get the new Vortex baskets and they are the best I have ever played. No disc going through the chains and they catch very well. Although due to the webbing of the chain they seem to be less forgiving if you place the putt a little high.
Cons: Not a lot to complain about.
The only bathroom facilities are the nearest tree and there is no water available.
The only thing that really could be an issue is at number 7 and 8. A very busy rod is nearby and a disc that was turned over could end up going there. So be aware of this.
Other Thoughts: Wow what an experience. I have played some of the best in the country. Three of the top 50 here on this site. One of which is Tyler. This course compares to them very well.
It can be very hot and dry here so bring plenty of water and some munchies.
Wear good shoes. This is NOT sandal friendly terrain. This park has been used by mountain bikers for years and is tough.
As hard as they have worked to put this course in I cannot wait to see the other course they are building here when it is done. It will be called Sekani Gold. The intention is to make a true pro level course on that one.
Don't be surprised if I change this to a 5 when the new tee signs are in and some other things are added that have been planned.

Pros: Great location...
Cons: Needs a lot of work all around. Tall grass in fairways make it hard to find your disc for the first 6 holes. Poor placement of buckets in proposed basket sights. Two of the holes have buckets placed on top of rock piles and several long hikes to following tee box.
Other Thoughts: I hope that they think a little harder during the final design with this course because it could truly become a top notch course with the right planning and development.
