Top 15 courses in Washington according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

2015 was a big year for the state of Washington's golf scene, hosting its first ever U.S. Open at Chambers Bay . It was an epic tournament for both good and bad reasons, but will certainly remembered for a long time to come.

The U.S. Open attracted, by one estimation, more than $140 million in economic development and a 40-percent boost in out-of-state golfers coming to Chambers Bay (which we can assume also played somewhere else during their trip).

Chambers Bay, while now the most high-profile of Washington's public courses, is certainly not typical of other state courses, which are generally more parkland in nature and framed with tall fir and pine trees. The top 15 courses of the year, sorted by golfers' ratings and reviews throughout 2015, showcase the great diversity of golf throughout the state. And many are very affordable.

We found the top 10 courses in Washington state by Golf Advisor raters. Checking in at no. 1 is Loomis Trail Golf Club in Blaine, a resort located way up north, close to the Canadian border on Semiahmoo Bay.
Two Seattle-area golf courses, two excellent choices, and they couldn't be more different. But Chambers Bay and Salish Cliffs should be the first two on your list.
Ranked among the best casino courses -- and arguably among the best three public courses in Washington -- Salish Cliffs is a Gene Bates design carved out of a Pacific Northwest forest with stunning views of the Kamilche Valley.
With the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay closing in fast, now's the perfect time to execute a golf trip to the Emerald City. Since Seattle isn't known as an A-list golf destination in the Pacific Northwest -- Oregon steals much of its thunder -- a three-day getaway with greens fees costing less than $200 remains an attainable goal.
