SPOKANE – Exciting news for Spokane golfers – The Creek at Qualchan golf course opens this Saturday, March 12, and Esmeralda golf course will open Wednesday, March 16, 2022. 

The Creek at Qualchan is a grand challenge. As Spokane’s newest City course, it offers modern, target-style golf. This par 72 course provides a beautiful natural setting with a meandering creek, five ponds, and well-protected greens.

Esmeralda is where the obsession starts. With its open space and flat fairways lined with over 2,000 trees, Esmeralda is a great course for all skill levels. Warm up your swing here, and enjoy improved quality of play thanks to a recently replaced irrigation system.

Players will enjoy permanent greens (except #11 on Esmeralda), driving ranges, and carts are allowed. Course restaurants will also be open.

For tee times, please visit or call the courses. Qualchan: 509.448.9317. Esmeralda: 487.6291.

Downriver and Indian Canyon will share opening dates as they are known.
