More good news for Spokane golfers! With the final traces of winter giving way to the green of spring, Downriver and The Creek at Qualchan golf courses are opening soon.

Downriver will open Saturday, March 30, 2019 followed by The Creek at Qualchan on Monday, April 1, 2019.

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.
