Indian Canyon GC

Indian Canyon logoIndian Canyon hosted the 1941 and 1984 Public Links Championships. When Bill Welch was victorious in 1941, he concluded “After I played Indian Canyon, I never wanted to go back to Texas again. I never saw a golf course that beautiful in my whole life…. I did return to Texas, but only to pack my bags and move to Spokane.”

This municipal track has been annually rated among Golf Digest’s “Best Public Courses”, “Best Affordable Courses”, “Best Golf Courses You Can Play”, “Best in State” and taken individually, some holes rank with the best holes found on any course – public or private – in the region. Indian Canyon’s lofty acclaim is well deserved.


The official charity of the Rosauers Open Invitational is Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Spokane’s safe haven for children at risk of abuse and neglect. The Nursery also provides counseling, education and referrals for parents of young children. The 2015 event raised $135,000 for the charity, with $2,600,000 raised through the years.

The Rosauers Open Invitational started in 1988 when a group of Spokane area Golf Professionals realized their goal of bringing a Pacific Northwest Section Major to town, which they achieved by developing a relationship with Rosauers Supermarkets. The tournament has almost always been held at Indian Canyon GC, which was designed by E. Chandler Egan – who also designed Pebble Beach GC. PGA Professional Derek Barron of Tacoma Golf Center recorded Indian Canyon’s competitive course record score of 59 in the 2015 championship. The tournament record of 192 was set by Corey Prugh in 2009. Prugh also holds the record for the most wins (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015). The biggest winner at this championship is the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery charity – over $2.6 million has been donated since the tournament’s inception.
