One of five courses owned and operated by the City of Spokane Parks & Recreation, the Creek at Qualchan Golf Course is a Bill Robinson design that debuted in 1993. Its tree-lined fairways are laid out on hilly terrain, where a small stream and a handful of ponds come into play.
Located just off U.S. Route 195 on the southern outskirts of Spokane, the layout incorporates the meandering waters of Hangman Creek, which comes into play at several of the holes.
The executioner's aquatic challenge begins right from the off at the 359-yard 1st, where the opening tee shot plummets 100 feet down from the edge of an escarpment, over the creek to a fairway that doglegs slightly left to the green, with bunkers either side of the landing zone.
Other notable holes include the 450-yard 12th, rated stroke index 1, where the tree-lined, narrow fairway plays to an angled green that’s tilted from front to back, and the 503-yard 16th , which veers sharply left past a rather large pond towards the green.
