The Spokane Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau says there are more than 30 courses within a short drive.

Not only will KHQ Local News Today celebrate the great golf opportunities in the Inland Northwest, they will also use the game of golf to get to know some of the area's most famous and influential public figures. Reporter Matt Rogers will go from Spokane to Pullman to play a hole of golf with a VIP, and interview them along the way on live TV.

Tuesday: A Mayor
Wednesday: A golf pro
Thursday: A coach
Friday: A commander

    WORLEY, Idaho - Most of us have heard it by now: name a list of accolades and the relatively new Circling Raven Golf Course has likely been on it.
