Horn Rapids Golf Club -- Horn Rapids: An Oasis In The Desert
Review by: Kevin Wenger Horn Rapids Golf Course, located in Richland Washington, is a desert-style target course that can be played by the pro down to the novice. The course measures out at almost 7,000 yards from the back tees, but from the forward tees it drops down to 6300 yards. Horn Rapids is reminscent of Southwestern US golf courses, green lush fairways amongst sand and sagebrush. The course has a links look to it on several of its holes. Several of the holes are bunkered enough that ending up in them will surely raise your score. Getting wet only comes into play on the finishing hole on 18. Keith Foster's design primarily uses the desert as the greatest hazard, it can put a major dent in your final numbers if you travel to far off the fairway. The fairways ARE generous though. OB is not penalizing as it can be on some courses. A straight tee shot will be rewarded with a good lie. And once you get to the putting surface, be prepared to find the greens fair if not at times quite readable. Remember to watch the bentgrass grain, it will change from morning to late afternoon, moving a putt several inches from the same spot. Give Horn Rapids a try and enjoy!

Horn Rapids Golf Club -- A challenge under any circumstances
Review by: Fred A fantastic "target" golf experience! Holes are challenging by the desert design- fairway islands wrapped by a sea of sagebrush and sand. Not much water, but well-placed traps protect greens and landing areas on many holes. On the holes that present less of a challenge by their layout, the desert wind can play havoc with your shots. If you get frustrated easily, stay away. If you appreciate a good challenge, in a beautiful setting, for a great price- try it!

Columbia Point Golf Course -- It is alright
Review by: Tyler & Justin Don't count on having a great round because there is lots of hills and with just a little wind the course can suck the big one. So if it is a nice day I would recommend going there.
