I just got word from a friend about a new course in Spokane Valley. I hadn't heard anything about a course going in so I went a checked it out. After the city finished installing sewer along the Mission corridor west of Barker the started working on Greenacres Park at the corner of Long and Boone, just south of mission and east of Flora. Apparently they also had plans that not very many knew about to install a small 9 hole disc golf course there as well. There is parking, a small childrens play area, restrooms, and 9 new Mach 5's with cement teepads. I am not sure who the brainchild was behind this but it's neat to see. I do remember mentioning disc golf as a nice use for the park in a flyer the city mailed out to residents to gain feedback for the park last year but I never heard anything since. Who knows? maybe it was my mentioning of disc golf that prompted it
. Regardless, it's still cool to see. For those who are interested in checking it out I should warn you that the dirt area where the baskets are just got hydroseeded so I doubt anyone will be playing there anytime real soon, but as soon as the grass takes root it will be a decent small addition to the Valley. Looks more like a little pitch-n-putt than anything. It is a small park after all.
