#happylife: Take your kids golfing without pressure or time constraints at this course

Eagle Ridge Short Course has been a Spokane staple for twenty years. In recent years, they’ve gotten creative with ways to get families out and enjoying golf!

Their facility right off US-195, is just 9 holes and meant to be a fun, stress-free experience for families. Strollers are welcome, as are varying skill levels and ages! Don’t be surprised if you see multiple generations taking a swing on the greens.

If the kids aren’t ready to give golfing a shot, or maybe you are a little nervous about putting a club in their hands, there is always Foot Golf! Foot Golf takes out the golf balls and clubs and replaces them with a foot and soccer ball. While dad’s at the tee golfing, kids can stand at the same tee preparing to kick off a soccer ball in to a neighboring hole.

New this summer is Foot Darts. Eagle Ridge short course has added a giant, blow-up dart board. If you are having a party, you can rent the board and half a dozen velcro soccer balls to kick.

Adults pay $10 to play at Eagle Ridge. Kids admission is $8. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase in the clubhouse. A round on the short course is estimated to take an hour to an hour and a half.

Eagle Ridge Short Course is open 10am to 7:30pm (last tee off) Monday through Thursday. Friday, Saturday, Sunday they open at 9am.

Owners recommend visiting before noon to avoid crowds.
