Type Public
Par 72
Length 7170 yards
Slope 138
Rating 74.5

Located just a few minutes north of Olympia, the Golf Club at Hawk's Prairie is one of the South Sound's most popular golf destinations. The club has two 18-hole courses, each with a completely different layout. You can choose between the classic Scottish design of the Links Course or the Woodlands Course with its idyllic landscape of dense, old growth forest. The Woodlands is what you would expect from a Pacific Northwest golf course, with sprawling fairways that snake through towering trees and large, multi-tiered greens. Ponds and wetlands come into play throughout and there are strategically placed bunkers protecting most of the greens. In addition to offering both a challenging and scenic round, the course was also ranked as one of the Top 75 Most Affordable Golf Courses by Golf Digest.

Just go play it

I play the woodlands 4-5 times a year. Great course layout with wild life, elevation on a few holes and plenty of great challanging greens. Always in great shape.

Perfect day

I hit the sweetspot, ahead of a tournament, playing solo in Summer on a gorgeous morning. Greens in great condition, not super fast but consistent. Shape of the layout on the Woodland side very appealing; early morning sun through fir trees is my favorite. Parred all but one hole on the back 9, so a good memory for a long time to come.

Very Dry Fairways

The Woods has limited watering on their fairways which results in brown fairways. Best to play lift and place to compensate for the rough fairways. The greens are in tip-top shape.

Lots of challenge

This course has plenty of elevation changes to keep you on your toes. A couple of long par 4’s play into the wind for extra measure.

Challenging layout - terrific greens

Enjoyed playing this somewhat challenging course - which required strategic layups and shot making .
Would love to play it again to see if I can do better .
Fairways were a bit beatup in places - but greens were fantastic - smooth and quick.
Pace of play was bit slow - there was a 5 -some in front - but they us play through after a few holes.

Would love to go back and play again.

Not impressed a bit let down

I have golfed this course a few times in the past and it has always been in great shape and very playable. Not this time. It was very dry in many places but would also have places that were literally soaking wet with standing water. Made it very difficult to know how to play a shot because the bounces were so inconsistent. Greens were in pretty good shape! But starting to get a fungus on some. I was pretty disappointed based on passed experience here and expectations.

Good but not great

Pace and architecture is a good set up form parking to the two courses and clubhouse. Greens ran very fast and approaches were difficult to hold the greens. Rough had some real patchiness. Definitely needed to be thatched in late spring. Result- fluff that was difficult to play standard club out of. Dry spots were also less forgiving and like hitting from concrete. This used to be my home course 10 years ago and lots of houses everywhere around this course now that are less nature aspects.

First Time Playing

First time playing and GPS took us through neighborhoods instead of to the clubhouse and as a first timer there were a couple of holes that weren't clearly marked. That is the only bad thing I can say about the course. Challenging course, well maintained and the staff was extremely helpful!
