It's now official, the Kalispel Tribe of Indians, has acquired the Spokane Country Club and plan to revamp parts of it, and even open some tee times to public. The Spokane Country Club, located in Northwest Spokane at 2010 W. Waikiki Rd was forced into a sale after a major discrimination law suit hit their small membership base hard recently.
But, the Kalispel have big plans for the club which should breathe new life into the business. Under the new ownership the club will be renamed the Kalispel Golf and Country Club , complete with a new logo...
The new Kalispel Golf and Country Club will operate as a branch of the Tribe's Northern Quest Resort & Casino . Many tee times will remain only open to those with club memberships, with new memberships up for sale. But, some tee times each day will be open to the public with a $115 greens fee .
The Tribe plans to do some updates and remodeling to the Country Club, most notably will be a complete remodel of the Club's on site restaurant. The restaurant will re-open after the work as a new yet to be named gastropub style bar and restaurant .
The Kalispel Tribe of Indians paid a little over $ 3 million to acquire the former Spokane Country Club. They now have Les Blakely , a PGA pro , in as the new director golf operations .
