With the U.S. Open coming to Chambers Bay, we name some of our favorite golf courses in the Pacific Northwest.
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.
Golfers travel for miles to take on the apple-shaped, island-green 17th at Apple Tree Golf Course in Yakima, Washington, but they usually leave impressed by the entire experience. Architect John Steidel designed the 6,971-yard course in 1992, cutting holes from a century-old apple orchard that continues to grow trees and bear fruit.
The Seattle area has become as good a golf destination as any area in the Pacific Northwest. From evergreen forests and majestic mountains to the dynamic downtown skyline and the shores of the Puget Sound, the Emerald City delivers varied and vibrant backdrops for golfers. Golf courses may not be near each other, but they're all worth seeking out to create a week of golf you won't soon forget.
The Arnold Palmer-designed Prospector Course at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Wash. challenges with tricky greens, and ponds that induce havoc on four holes. The dynamite 340-yard fifth hole tempts some visitors into trying to carry the full length of a wetland. The par-3 sixth hugs its opposite side. Another pond fronts the 412-yard, par-4 ninth hole and 540-yard, par-5 closing hole. And don't forget no. 10, which boasts an elevated tee and vistas that extend for miles into the Wenatchee Washington National Forest.
On clear days you can see the snow-capped peak of Mount Rainier from many of the holes at Druids Glen Golf Club, which has the reputation for being of the toughest golf courses in the entire state of Washington. The 230 acres is littered with trouble -- thousands of evergreen trees, 60 bunkers, nine lakes and poa annua greens faster than most public clubs in the Pacific Northwest.
