Spokane’s SunDance golf course shuts down

Updated: December 3, 2018

Sun Dance Golf Course, a staple of the Nine Mile Falls community in the Spokane area for more than 55 years, has shut down to make way for something new – possibly, a future housing development. The course closed for good back in late September.

Sun Dance Golf Course opened in 1963. Ken Johnston and his wife, Peggy Jones, purchased the golf course in 1977. When Johnston died in 1997, Peggy and her children took over ownership.

Shelly Price, manager of Sun Dance and Johnston’s daughter stated, “ Costs continue to rise and we didn’t really raise our rates. We tried to keep rates less than the city or county courses.”
