Starting today, July 17, 2015, Indian Canyon Golf Course will host the Rosauers Open Invitational Tournament, benefiting the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery.

The Tournament was relocated last year due to several seasons of gradual decline in course conditions. This year, significant course improvements have been made and the Tournament has returned to Indian Canyon.

Significant Improvements to Indian Canyon Golf Course include:

  • Investments in new turf equipment 
  • Improvements to forest management to help with air flow and reduce shading on the greens 
  • Clubhouse improvements including A new cable deck railing, concrete deck replacement, and exterior paint on clubhouses

History of Indian Canyon Golf course

Indian Canyon was designed in 1930 by H. Chandler Egan and has been chosen by Golf Digest many times as one of the top 25 public courses in the United States. The Canyon sits atop the west entrance to Spokane, overlooking the city. Indian Canyon requires accuracy from the tee to the green. The site of many major tournaments, Indian Canyon has hosted the U.S.G.A. three times; the United States Amateur Public Links Championship in 1941 and 1984; and the United States Women's Amateur Public Links Championship in 1989. Built on a canyon wall with a vertical drop of 240 feet amid many towering pines, the Canyon offers a very diverse and unique playing environment. It is well bunkered and has undulating greens which require a deft touch if par of 71 is to be achieved over the hilly 6,255 yards.
