Gamble Sands Golf Course
This is a true links golf course. The Gamble Sands Hickory Championship is a two-day, 36-hole outing with four divisions of play.
The Sands course is a true links course set in the high desert of Washington with sandy soil, traditional fine fescue grasses, firm playing surfaces, wide fairways, and massive greens.
The Gamble Sands course offers a very playable experience that plays to a par 72. It’s more akin to David McLay Kidd’s earlier work at Bandon, Ore., with an emphasis on having fun. This is illustrated throughout the golf course, especially on the reachable par-4 2nd hole with its breathtaking view of the Columbia River, or perhaps on the split fairway of the par-4 14th, or the bowl shaped par-3 16th.
