Great Golf Opportunities Await You In Spokane WA

Indian Canyon Golf Course in SpokaneGreat golf opportunities await you in Spokane, WA.  I'm not sure if you have ever heard that said before, but it is true. The Spokane area is home to quite a few beautiful golf courses and About.com's Northwest US Travel ranks Spokane 3rd behind Bandon, OR and Coeur d'Alene, ID.  I have to wonder if it wasn't for the Coeur d'Alene resort's "Floating Green" in the lake, would Spokane be number 2???  Probably, but that's ok.

The Spokane area hosts 15 public courses and 2 or 3 private courses (that I am aware of), which isn't too shabby for a town of about 200K. With mild weather and 4 distinct seasons, there are ample opportunities to get out and enjoy what Spokane has to offer on pretty much any given day of the year... the most important of those things being golf!

One of Spokane's best public golf courses is Indian Canyon, chosen numerous times by Golf Digest as one of the top 25 golf courses in the United States.  Other notable courses include The Fairways (voted the "Windiest place in the Universe" by 11 of the 12 balls I had in my bag), Wandermere Golf Course (one of my personal favorites) and Esmeralda Golf Course (always in great shape and a gorgeous course).

If you would like to get a feel for any of the great golf opportunities awaiting you in Spokane, please follow me on Twitter @KevinRay where I live-tweet my somewhat ridiculous golf outings including teeing off on number 10 at Esmeralda but playing the 18th fairway.

Nothing wrong with it if you ask me... but the foursome heading to the 18th green did not find it as amusing as I did!

Kevin - You are lucky to be located in such a beautiful area! While I am of the Mark Twain school of thought regarding golf, you would certainly convince my husband.

The perfect course for me is the one I'm on.... not holding out much (or any) hope for the hole in one... gotta know my limitations!

While I'm not a golfer, I can certainly appreciate that fabulous view. Could I just sit there and enjoy a glass of iced tea?

Nothing more peaceful and enjoyable than a nice game of golf in a picturesque setting. Unless you suck at golf and would just get frustrated as the birds and squirrels mock your every errant shot.

Great photos. It seems that Spokane is a golfer's dream come true. I am sure that it is a big draw for the area.
