The old growth fir and cedar trees lining Kayak Point Golf Course in Stanwood, Wash. tower over players. They provide the seclusion from the outside world that golfers crave. There's no noise from nearby roads or homes, just you against Mother Nature. There aren't many bunkers here and water comes into play on only two holes. But untamed terrain creates a routing that plays much longer than its yardage.
Kayak Point Golf Course, a Ronald Fream design that opened in 1977, is ready for a rebirth. Located 50 miles north of Seattle in Stanwood, Wash., there are plans to invest $500,000 into the 260-acre property over the next three years. What doesn't need upgrading is a scenic and serene routing that roams through some of the tallest trees in the Pacific Northwest, Jason Scott Deegan writes.
