Pros: This is a nice new course in the Tri-Cities, Wa area and a nice compliment to the other 2. This course plays along a hill behind Fred Meyer in Richland. There is a wide variety of holes with good use of the elevation available.

My favorite feature is the sage brush. While usually not much of an obstacle, the sage brush here is up to 6 feet tall and 8 across. There are a couple holes that require fairly accurate drives to a clearing or you're trying to throw out of tall brush. There are also a couple bands of trees that have holes play through or around along with some fairly straightforward up or down hill holes.
Signs are well done and placed.
Cons: This is a new course and apparently they have plans for rubber pads(city won't allow hard tees) but are not in yet. Tees are dished out soft sand that are very tough to throw from. Safer to throw beside them for now.
No garbage cans, bathrooms, benches, or other amenities of a more mature course yet but I expect to see these improvements as time goes on.
Other Thoughts: This is a very promising start to a course and I look forward to playing it more. When we were there the sage and wildflowers were blooming and it was the nicest smelling course I have played yet.
Will be hot in the summer with little shade so make sure to have water.
