Three Spokane-area golf courses will open for the season Thursday — Downriver, Esmeralda and Qualchan, according to Spokane Parks & Recreation.

Indian Canyon, the other course operated by Spokane Parks & Rec, will open later, “as weather permits,” the department said in a press release.

Likewise, the Coeur d’Alene Public Golf Course will wait another two weeks or so before opening, a spokesman said.

Greens fees for the three Spokane courses opening this week are $25 for 18 holes. For tee times, call (509) 327-5269 for Downriver; (509) 487-6291 for Esmeralda; and (509) 448-9317 for Qualchan.
