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.

Auburn in Autumn

Got a good rate through GolfNow. Front nine is flat, most holes are tree lines and there is a lot of back and forth on the first six holes. After the par five tenth holes things get more interesting as you head up the hill and then work your way back down to the number 16 course signature hole. Water comes into play on the last two holes, expecially number 18 if the pin is on the left side. It was a cloudly day with a few showers the last five holes when I played. The greens looked like they were plugged a couple of weeks ago, but were every good I though. Shots to the green would hold and my ball rolled nicely on putts.

Slow as molasses

Don't bother unless you enjoy really slow pace. The course is nice enough but some of the staff can leave a bad taste in your mouth. It took 4 1/2 hours to play through 15 holes. Couldn't finish a 6 hour round is just ridiculous on a Monday afternoon. This was my third round with exceptionally long play and though I enjoy the course I won't be returning.

Scramble Fiasco

Booked the tee time for a friend and I only to find out they put us in the middle of a scramble tournament. So after a few holes we caught up the the scramble that was extremely slow, 8 people on a hole, posing for pictures etc. We decided to bag it after 8 holes, asked staff for refund which they wouldn't do. Gave us rain check for half of our green fees reluctantly.

Great course for the money

I've really enjoyed playing this course over the years. Well maintained, challenging and interesting. My only complaint is too many water hazards, give me a bunker every time.

Auburn Golf Course - 7/15/18

The course conditions were great. The pace of play was good, but not great. The group in front of us had some difficulties, and played slow.

The greens are fast, tricky. And I love to play (and hate to play) holes 9 and 18. Both are great holes, but difficult due to the water hazards.

Overall, a great day.

Nice municipal course

Auburn has a well maintained course with decent challenge. Great greens and fairways better than most muni courses. There are a couple of “funky” holes, but overall a decent and scenic track.

The service in the restaurant post round could have been better, with staff that perhaps was actually happy to be working in the nice environment that it is. The beer was cold and the food was average, the atmosphere very nice, with plenty of TV to watch the current tournament or your favorite sporting event.

Better than I remember

Had a great time - weather was perfect. Deal offered by GolfNow was a super great value. Pace of play was pretty good. Just a little waiting but hardly much to mention.

Will Play Again

Great public course, but other reviewer’s concerns about pace of play are valid. Admittedly, it was beautiful weather and Father’s Day, but my tee time got pushed 30 minutes and the round took five hours.

Be ready for fast greens and a layout that will challenge golfers of all skill levels.

Best course in the South end!

The Auburn Golf Course is not only the best course in the area, the greens will become known as the best in the region. It continues to improve week to week. The round today took 3 hours & 10 minutes. The tee time was early in the morning. Try it, you'll like it!!!
