The Fairways Golf Course’s layout unfurls over rolling terrain teeming with wetlands and native grasses. Multiple water hazards and fast greens pose challenges for experienced players, and relatively open fairways and a set of closer, forward tees cater to golfers of all experience levels. A dramatic conclusion awaits at the par-4, 419-yard 18th hole—the course’s most challenging hole—where golfers must contend with a dog-leg right and a small pond that arches around the front and left sides of the green. Golfers can prepare for the round at the driving range and practice green, or simply ask the course’s beverage-cart operator for the liquid cure for a slice-prone swing.
The EWU Eagles play their home games at the recently renovated Roos Field, which boasts an intimidating red-turf surface called the “Inferno”—confused opposing teams frequently draw up plays involving hopping from couches to pillowcases in an attempt to avoid this “lava.” The family pass allows two adults and three children, or two adults and three cleverly disguised vuvuzelas, the opportunity to taste the festive atmosphere of college football. Tickets can be redeemed at the box office and are valid for the best available seats.
