SPOKANE, Wash. – The Creek at Qualchan golf course is opening Wednesday, March 13, followed by Esmeralda golf course on Friday, March 15. They are the first two City of Spokane golf courses to open for the season.

Players at both courses will enjoy permanent greens (one possible temporary green at Esmeralda); carts will be allowed, and the driving ranges and restaurants will be open.

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.

The Creek at Qualchan: 509.448.9317

Esmeralda: 509.487.6291


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