Great setting, Fun layout.
I was told this was really good. I was disappointed in the condition but the greens were puttable and that is all that really matters to me. I really enjoyed the layout and how most holes were separated from each other. The greens are gigantic so it’s not difficult to hit them. The practice facility is really good. It has everything you need to work on your game. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, I really enjoyed my round here. It’s not overly difficult but really fun to play. If you can lag putt well, you should score well here.
Basically Bellingham Muni
Good basic course with friendly Staff and Patrons.
Bad Day... Great Value.
Got to ride 18 holes for $18.00.. Weather for the last 9 holes was horrible and the course was very damp.
This is spring, no ball washers anywhere on the course. Water on the drinking fountains were turned off. We were there one hour early, the course was virtually empty, but we were told that we had to tee off at our assigned time. as a result the group following us had to wait about every hole. No, there were no group ahead of us.
bring your own water my guess is stay and play golf in Canada. The Staff there is very nice, but then Respect gets respect nothing wrong with padden
Rubbish. I've played there many times. There are plenty of ball washers. Sounds like the problem wasn't the course, it was you. Perhaps you should have let the group behind you play through?
Great layout w/ ++greens
I love great greens and even with a recent aeration (3-4 weeks ago) Lake Padden has just that...and they were summer slick! Lots of elevation changes in the fairways adds a level of difficulty in club choice. No wind on our round, but with second growth forest through out the course, I doubt that it would've had a significant impact.
Good value for your money
Really nice municipal course. Well kept and playable almost all year round
Best value I have ever seen
I have been playing Lake Padden for years. The improvements over the last 5 years have made this course a real treat, and the management has been able to keep fees modest. The last time I played here there had been heavy rain early in the morning. By noon the fairways were mostly dry, showing the effects of improved drainage. This is a very player-friendly course, not much sand and only one hole where there is water possibly in play. Very large greens, some with serious slope issues.(I have had putts break 180 degrees!) If you want to play in less than 4 hours, come early.
For all level players !
I play this couse at least two to three times a month and never get tired of the challenges !
Staff is super friendly especially Matt in the pro shop !
His service makes every trip to the course worthwhile !
Lake Padden your own private course in the woods!
Weather was a 68 degree sunny day pin flags at ease. My wife and I had an amazing day. We will play lake padden again for sure!
great course, better deal
Got a steal of a deal using golfnow! Our foursome saved over $50 on golf and that included carts. I will definitely use golfnow again. Lake padden is a beautiful course. Huge evergreen trees separate each fairway. You feel all alone on the course. It is very quiet, except for one hole that is next to the main road. Put this course on your list if you plan to visit northwestern Washington.
I have been to padden many times and always had a great experience. However, this day was awful.... I had a 5 hour round with waits on every tee box and there was a lawnmower literally rolling greens in my backswing as I putted no further than 8 feet from me. Complete disrespect when I asked him if he'd wait until I was done putting before continuing. I feel bad for leaving a bad review but this guy just was icing on the cake to an already slow day of golf.
Tree lined course with generous fairway landing areas and numerous elevation changes.
A nice track that has a few water areas that are not in play for the most part. Built on sloping land near Lake Padden in the Bellingham area of NW Washington the course is a local favorite for all skill levels. Doglegs and elevation changes make for an interesting round with well maintained greens (watch out for the deceptive slope on the Par 3 #4 hole).
Nice course - young staff at desk, couldn't care less about their jobs
I'm always amazed when I find young men working at a golf course who obviously would rather be playing golf than working - wouldn't we all? But, seriously, they've got a dream job, and can't be bothered to even smile at the CLIENTS? Very strange. The young women working at Padden have a very different attitude, thank goodness! Anyway, a great course for the money, but don't expect anyone to make you feel welcome!
Great Course - slow play
Played after a men's tournament. The pin placements were treacherous and caused a lot of difficulty the a number of groups ahead. The ladies seemed to be struggling mightily with the fast greens and difficult pin placements. As a result, the round took 5 hrs and not a Marshall in sight!
A nice layout and will play again.
I have played here a couple times and have to say its one of the best in the area. The layout of the course provides a scenic, but challenging experience. It feels almost like you have the whole course to yourself. I plan to be back for many more years to come.
Fun test of golf.
You should be able to draw the ball off the tee to score better.keep the ball in the tree line and have a great time.
Very good public golf course for the price
Fairways are fairly wide and lined with trees, keeping each fairway private from other golfers.
Putting greens are big and well maintained.
Really private...... no houses.
it was a great value and good layout. I could play it every day.
Tree lined fairways with spectacular greens that will challenge the novice and pro
Enjoyed everything about the course. Pace of play is good tee boxes need some work but played after a tourney. Played with golf now booking and the guy gave me a hard time about my booking and would not honour my cart . Make sure your authorization states a cart or you might run into someone who won't read his info and give you the gears.
