Pros: Incredible diversity and beauty on this course. It The Spokane river wraps around most of the course making for beautiful backdrops. Plenty of long holes to air your arm out as well as interesting terrain (elevation, water, trees). It's a very well designed course and my favorite in Spokane. It's definitely worth playing a round if you're in the area.
Cons: It's very crowded. I don't even attempt to play on the weekends unless I can get out there early in the morning. I also lose a lot of discs here, so be careful with your favorites.
Other Thoughts: If you are family oriented and can get there early it's a great place for a round and a family picnic. There's a nice little beach area by the 7th hole where you can have lean up against a log and have some lunch. The front nine are MUCH tougher than the back nine, so it's nice to know that if you can survive holes 2-9 you should have a good round. There's more direct sun here than at Highbridge, so if you're looking to get some rays or a little more heat I'd head here rather than Highbridge. It also seems to be pretty protected from the wind. It's an awesome course (when it's isn't too crowded).

Pros: This course walks the tough line of being very difficult and yet fair at the same time. Wide open holes, tight technical holes, distances varying from 230 up to 500, and one very picturesque downhill shot overlooking the spokane river. You have to be well versed in both power and accuracy to score well on this course. The few holes that run along the river are just a pleasure to play due to the scenery of the crystal clear bubbling water. Very friendly locals as well
Cons: The course recently had three holes removed from its original 21 because of crossing fairways that made play somewhat dangerous. As a result of this the holes had to be reshuffled, resulting in some tough navigation and some incorrect signs. I'm sure within a short while this problem will be remedied and new tee signs will be brought in. Once this is done I'd rate the course a five.
Other Thoughts: I'm on a road trip from Pensacola Florida to seattle, and I've played courses all along the way in eight different states. Although Colorado gets huge billing for its courses up in the Rockies, I'd venture that I like this course the best of the entire trip thus far.

Pros: Great course design, diverse holes, hyzer and anhyzer shots, holes favor righties, Redesign on a few wholes and order are a welcome change, since a couple holes used to cross.
Cons: Couple tee boxes are rough, need more parking for busy days, people leave trash around a lot (especially beer cans), beginners can easily lose their discs on a few holes along river, need better signage for next whole since redesign.
Other Thoughts: what a fantastic course. offers variety of lengths and terrains, and requires a variety of skills and shots. This was the first course I played and still love it. Never gets boring. Just watch out for those that drink heavily on course...they can be obnoxious!
