Our Favorite Golf Courses - Greater Seattle Area 2015

Posted on September 09, 2014 by Daniel Pusilo | 3 comments

It's no secret that the Pacific Northwest possesses some of the best golf courses in the country. Most of these great golf courses are regularly featured on the Golf Digest’s annual "Top 100" list. But, as an avid golfer, I regularly realize just how lucky I am to be living in the state of Washington. In my opinion, with its unique topography and mild weather patterns, Washington State offers some of the most unique golf courses in the country.

Here is our short list of our favorite golf courses in Washington State, in no particular order.

Chambers Bay Golf Course

Location: University Place, WA

Architect: Robert Trent Jones II

Host: 2010 U.S. Amateur, 2015 U.S. Open

*An obvious choice, this is one of he most unique golf venues that I have ever experienced. The rolling, links-stlye design offers a unique experience with exquisite views of the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound.

Salish Cliffs

Location: Shelton, WA

Architect: Gene Bates

Awards

2013: Best In State - Golf Digest Magazine

*This beautifully manicured course offers many risk and reward opportunities and always proves a challenge no matter how many time you play it.

The Olympic Course at Gold Mountain

Location: Bremerton, WA

Architect: John Harbottle III

Host: 2006 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship

*The Olympic course only charges $60 for play on a the weekend which maybe the best deal in America, let alone Washington, considering the rolling layout. 

The Homecourse

Location: DuPont, WA

Architect: John Fought

Host: 2014 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links

*This layout features wide, firm fairways and large greens. A great choice, no matter what your skill level.

Druids Glen Golf Course

Druids Glen

Location: Covington, WA

Architect: Keith Foster

* Hidden Gem.

Before you hand Chambers Bay the number one ranking please check out Gamble Sands in Brewster.

Good list, but you are missing two of the top 3 courses in the state. Wine Valley in Walla Walla and the new Kidd course, Gamble Sands.

You should add some courses east of the mountains to your list…there are a lot of good ones!
