Golf Digest named the Palouse Ridge Golf Club in Pullman, WA as one of the top new public courses in 2009. The Washington State U. course has also been called one of the best college courses in the country. The beautiful course provides spectacular views of the rolling hills and farmlands of the Palouse region in the southeast corner of Washington State and the distant mountains of Idaho and Oregon.
As for the golf, Palouse Ridge Golf Club offers a challenging par 72 layout that plays 7,308 yards from the crimson tees with distances ranging from 6,723 to 5,106 from four other tee boxes, making it playable for all levels of golfers. Designed by John Harbottle III, a leading golf course architect on the West coast, Palouse Ridge Golf Club features a multitude of elevation changes, a few water hazards, challenging bunkers and greens. The best holes on the course include the 4th, a 484 yard par 4 that may be the most beautiful par 4 in the Northwest, with a tee perched 90 feet above the ribbon like fairway angled to the left,

with mountains rising in all directions from the vantage point.
Beware of the fairway bunker on the right side and two bunkers fronting the long, slim green. The 5th hole is a 589 yard par 5 with a wide swath of wetlands bisecting the hole. The 11th is a 175 yard par 3 over water to a hidden green behind two fringed bunkers. And the 18th is a challenging 551 yard par 5 that doglegs sharply to the left.
If all this golf sounds inviting, play the Palouse Ridge Golf Club at your earliest convenience. If the sun is shining brightly, bring along a pair of Condor Sportsman sunglasses from
www.scientificgolfclubs.com. These high quality shades protect your eyes from harmful UVA, UVB and UVC light and improve your game because they're rimless across the bottom so they don't interfere with your line of sight when you look down at the ball. They enhance your depth perception by giving you sharper contrast, so you can track your shots and judge distances accurately.
The Condor Sportsman sunglasses weigh less than an ounce, so you don't even know you have them on and feature lens material developed by NASA that helps you see the ball more clearly.
