The Course

KNOWN AS ONE OF THE BEST CONDITIONED COURSES IN THE REGION, golfers of all skill levels have enjoyed its beautiful surroundings for more than 100 years. The Par 72 course, with 54 strategically placed bunkers and water hazards impacting seven holes, has had very few design changes since 1910.

COURSE MAP

Nestled against the foothills of Rattlesnake Ridge and alongside the meandering Little Spokane River, golfers are likely to experience nature’s beauty at every turn. With natural landscaping, very few fabricated contours and the opportunity to see deer, moose and other beautiful animals wandering across the fairways, the Kalispel Golf and Country Club experience is second to none.

History Meets Hospitality

FOUNDED IN 1898 AS THE SPOKANE COUNTRY CLUB, this elegant and historic course has provided decades of golfers with a haven to relax, socialize and simply enjoy the game. The Kalispel Tribe of Indians purchased the course in December 2015, continuing the tradition of excellence at the renamed Kalispel Golf and Country Club – and providing an exciting commitment to the future.

THE EARLY YEARS
If the original members of the Club were still around to tell the story, we would all be listening with rapt attention. Severely impacted in the early years by a growing city, transportation obstacles and a devastating fire, the Club and its loyal members persevered.

Originally located at 14th and Perry Street in the lower South Hill neighborhood of Spokane, the greens and fairways of the nine-hole golf course reportedly consisted of primarily dirt and sand, with tin cans for cups. Several of the Club’s founding members were well-known Spokane businessmen, including Kirtland Cutter, F. Lewis Clark, J.P. Graves and W.H. Cowles. In the early years, annual membership dues were set at $5.

OVERCOMING OBSTACLES
In 1903, just five years after it opened, the Spokane Country Club moved farther south to South Grand Boulevard and 33rd Ave. (known now as Lewis & Clark High School’s Hart Field), where it was serviced by a newly extended streetcar line. In 1908, flames devoured the main Clubhouse building, which was designed by Cutter, an original member of the Club and notable Spokane architect. As residential growth of Spokane’s upper South Hill continued, in 1910, the Club moved one more time to its current location, nestled up against the Little Spokane River on Spokane’s north side. In the early 1900s, Spokane’s north border virtually ended at Garland Street. Because of the distance between the Club’s location and Spokane’s main residential areas and the scarcity of automobiles, the Club struggled in its new north side location. To develop membership, the Club operated a jitney (a small bus) to transport members from town on the weekends. The first Clubhouse built at the current location included guest rooms and quarters, where members and staff could spend the night.

NOTABLE MOMENTS
Throughout its 100-plus year history, the course has benefited from several notable moments. In 1946, the Club was selected to host the inaugural U.S. Women’s Open Championship, won by World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Patty Berg. In more recent years, the Club has hosted a long list of professional golf greats, including Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Curtis Strange, Nancy Lopez, Fred Couples, Chip Beck and Nick Price. Tom Watson currently holds the course record of 11 under par. Course architecture improvements were made in 1988 by famous golf architect Robert Muir Graves. His enhancements added additional character and challenge to an already superior golf course.

A FRESH START
In December 2015 the Kalispel Tribe of Indians purchased the Spokane Country Club. With new ownership, a new name and a commitment to providing golfers with the highest levels of hospitality, the future of the Kalispel Golf and Country Club looks bright.

FROG SYMBOLISM
Kalispel Tribal elders often tell stories about “Frog Island”, a sacred place on the banks of the Pend Oreille River where families once gathered to share meals, dances and conversation.  The Kalispel frog not only represents health, balance and community, it’s a strong symbol of a promising future.

The Kalispel Tribe

ONCE ONE OF THE POOREST Native American Tribes in the United States, the Kalispel Tribe of Indians is now one of the top ten private employers in the Spokane region. The historically humble and hospitable tribe operates a well-diversified business portfolio with Northern Quest Resort & Casino, the region’s premier destination resort, as its largest venture. Tribal health and social service programs, supported by the resort and other businesses, have increased the quality and life expectancy for tribal members and surrounding communities near the tribe’s reservation along the Pend Oreille River.

The Tribe, who employs more than 2,000 people in the area, has donated more than $13 million to regional non-profit organizations. Find out more about the Kalispel Tribe’s rich cultural history and their progression at KalispelTribe.com.
