Auburn Golf Course sprawls across the rolling hills that run alongside the Green River. Originally built in 1948, the course was bought by city of Auburn, Wash. in 1968. The course has gone through major renovations in recent years including the reconstruction of nine fairways, 15 greens, and 17 tee boxes. The layout sprawls across more than 150 acres of lush hillsides, offering scenic views throughout. The golf course has a classic design with 20 bunkers strategically placed throughout as well as two ponds and a waterfall that come into play. Though you will face a variety of different lies that to the undulating landscape, there aren't any blind shots to contend with. Auburn Golf Course combines challenging elements with playability, making it a course that appeals to players of all skill levels.

flooded

When we arrived we were told carts are unavailable because of flooding on cart paths. Some holes were closed altogether.
Would have been nice to have been notified and have a chance to reconsider. Was given small discount at the counter and walked the fist 9 (that were playable) before getting a cart for the back 9. I hope the course recovers from the flooding. Its much worse now then it was when I played.

Pace of Play

Nice quiet course . Plenty of elevation change . Greens really quite nice. Fairways a little too wet in winter play . Great views and scenery . Pace of play was very slow . Didn't appreciate booking a tee time a week in advance then being placed behind a FIVESOME . Really , a FIVESOME.

Incredible November Weather on a Good Course

Well it was amazing weather. 2 people baked and played as 2-some thought it would be bad pace but flew on the front 9 up til 8. Back nine dragged though. Several fun holes here. 8 is a gorgeous par 3, #9 only tricky when the power lines knock your great shot down. #11 short par 4 up a hill. #15 is a funky par 4 tee shot off a cliff. Signature hole #16 is nice. Greens a little bumpy but not horrible. Overall good round and pace likely would have been better if not a 2-some squeezed between all the 4-somes.

Nice coursec with a few funky holes.

Auburn is a nice course, usually in good shape even in winter. You can usually find good deals on this course. Holes 11, 13, and 15 seem like they were kind of forced into place. Other than that, I like the layout. There is no driving range.

Very cool golf course

Definitely worth the drive from the Philly area. I would have given the conditions 5* but the green side bunkers weren't in good shape.

Great views, good conditions and a fun layout, I'll definitely be back.

Plugged and Sanded

There was an aeration warning on the Golf Now site so I called the course and asked when they were plugging and sanding the greens, he said he would check and came back and told me on next Saturday. So I went back and booked. When I got there I saw that the greens had been sanded. The guy at the counter said it was always the plan to do it on Monday and Tuesday that whoever I talked to should have not told me that. I decided to go ahead and play and he waited until after I paid to tell me that the back nine was closed that you play the front twice to get your 18 holes. I walked off after 5 holes.

Auburn golf

Nice course and layout. Coolest par 3 in state....mid iron shot over water to green with waterfall at back of green! Really awsome. Should be noted that front 9 is being plugged and sanded...so this week you play back 9 twice

Great course for a moderately challenging round

The course offers a lot of variety in terms of approach, hazards etc Walking this course can be tough on anyone with knee problems..
I just wish they had a driving range.
This is one of my favorite ‘value for money’ courses in the king county region given the reasonable green fees.
Staff is super friendly.

Great public golf course!

Great golf course for a beginner to practice. Several holes are tricky but overall course layout is doable. The course is in a cost-effective condition and I am pretty satisfied with the quality.

Good course.

This course is not so easy that it isn't challenging. And it is not so hard that it is unplayable for high handicappers. It's always maintained well. We seldom have problems with the pace of play. And it's very well landscaped so as to present a nice, serene setting.
