Palouse Ridge receives national recognition

PULLMAN – Golfweek magazine recently ranked WSU’s Palouse Ridge Golf Club among the top three campus golf courses in America.
The golfing magazine’s Best Campus Courses list features 30 courses in 22 states. It names the Palouse Ridge Course the nation’s third best collegiate course, behind The Course at Yale, Yale University, deemed the nation’s top collegiate course; and Taconic Golf Club, Williams College, named the nation’s second best.
Completed in 2008, Palouse Ridge Golf Club already has won accolades from golf media nationwide. It was named second “Best New Course” by both Golf Digest and Golfweek magazines in 2009. Both praised the use of the existing landscape to create an “old school, glitz free” playing experience.
Palouse Ridge was one of only three PAC-10 university courses named in the Golfweek list. Stanford Golf Course, Stanford University, was selected as the nation’s fifth best collegiate course. ASU Karsten Golf Course, Arizona State University, made the list at 29th.
To qualify for the Golfweek’s Best Campus Courses list, a course must be part of a school’s recreational life and provide preferential access to students, faculty and alumni.
