cg bust 125cGW Says: I played Gamble Sands not too long after it opened in August of 2014 - I'll try and be unbiased, but since I love the wide-open golf and sweeping views often associated with courses on the eastern side of the state, I give Gamble Sands 5-stars out of 5! - The location is spectacular as it sits on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River - The layout is links-style with open fairways and large, often undulating greens - Several blind tee shots make it a bit tricky the 1st time around and make sure you call ahead to verify driving directions - But otherwise the course was in great shape and I can't wait to play it again - The weather was perfect the day we played, but the wind can definitely be a factor at times - Whatever, just do yourself a favor and play Gamble Sands as soon as you can
