Peaceful solitude with a gravel trail all the way around the Lake. Benches to rest if you so desire, water stations and restrooms, ample parking and plenty of space to do your own thing!

First, twilight after 2pm in mid-August was only $27!! I guess I could of played more, but started at 5. First the fairways are pretty wide and thus forgiving to a certain extent; but then again, if you really mess up trees everywhere will get your scores up pretty quick. The most distinctive thing are the greens; they are either... More

An old style golf course cut through some tall spruce and pine trees. Reasonably priced and usually plays in under four hours.

This gem of a course is well known to locals and located at the entrance of Lake Padden Park just south of Bellingham. Well treed and with surprisingly very little water, this 18 hole full length course will challenge all skill levels. The greens were in great shape (late August), and althoug not visible from the course, The putts break... More

This is a great track for so many reasons, but ultimately it comes down to the quality of the greens- smooth and consistent. I was draining putts from all over the place. My only con would be the 1 par 4 on the back 9 with the 90 degree dog leg right. I cringe at these type holes as it... More

We played here at the end of July and twilight started at 2pm which meant golf for $30 on a course that is a good challenge. Unlike the previous reviewer, we did not find that the greens were slow at all and given the lack of rain in the last few months we thought that the overall shape of the... More

Take advantage of the driving range - it's grass and you hit balls to the north, which means that the sun shines on the ball and not in your eyes. The course has a good variety of holes, with tracts of forest separating most holes. Fairways and greens are well-maintained and the pro shop staff are welcoming. There are no... More
