Painted Hills Golf Course is situated on eighty-six acres of land in Spokane, WA USA. The course, which opened to the public in 1989, is relatively flat with a few undulating hills here and there. Four water hazards -- three artificial ponds and a natural stream -- pose a challenge for even the most consummate golfer.
Painted Hills is a 3244 yard, par 36 course. The incorporation of two par threes, two par fives, and five par fours provides the golfer -- from beginner to advanced -- an opportunity to play a wide range of shots. Play can begin on each hole at any of three tee-boxes. The blue tees are a good starting point for the accomplished golfer; the white tees are appropriate for the intermediate to advanced golfer, or for a beginner who needs more of a challenge; and the red tees are suitable for women, children, and those who want to play a shorter game.
Many golfers play the course twice (from different tees) for an 18-hole outing. The first nine holes are usually finished in just over two hours, so that eighteen takes a bit over four. When the course is played twice -- once from the white tees and once from the blue tees, for example -- the total length is 6532 yards.
