As early signs of spring arrive, Downriver and Esmeralda golf courses are preparing to open Thursday, March 15.

Downriver is just down the river, and just far enough away from everything else. Recently celebrating 100 years, it’s the oldest City course. This par 71 course is nestled among tall pines along the Spokane River and Riverside State Park. Gently rolling terrain and views of the river make this a local favorite.
