Gamble Sands’ 18-hole, David McLay Kidd-designed Sands Course opened for play in 2014 to widespread acclaim and is recognized as a Top 100 golf course in the United States. In 2021, Gamble Sands unveiled its 14-hole QuickSands short course (also a McLay Kidd layout) providing golfers with a fun and imaginative shot-making alternative to the Sands course. In 2022, Gamble Sands announced plans to build a second 18-hole, David McLay Kidd-designed championship golf course. Construction on the new course is underway with anticipated completion and grand opening in summer 2025. The yet-to-be-named course adds to an already impressive collection of golf and hospitality amenities at Gamble Sands. 

In addition to the new golf course, the Inn at Gamble Sands, the 37-room on-property lodge, is also being enhanced with 36 more rooms added (for a total of 73 rooms). The Inn at Gamble Sands features oversized rooms that match the wide-open nature of Gamble Sands, as big rooms open to the big golf course, framed by even bigger views that sweep across the Columbia River Valley. Danny Boy Bar and Grill, and the property’s new dining venue The Barn (opening summer 2023) provide diners with more views of the Cascades and Columbia River Valley.
