Rating 72.8

The Golf Club at Hawk's Prairie offers two 18-hole courses, the Links and the Woodlands. Located just a few miles north of Olympia in Lacey, Washington, the club is one of the best golf values in the South Sound. The Links Course joined the original 18 holes in 1999, providing a stark contrast to the aptly named Woodlands Course. The classic Scottish-links design features open fairways and undulating greens. The layout sprawls north towards the mouth of the Puget Sound. There are some rolling hills but the course is still a nice walk, especially with the views of Mount Rainier along the way. You'll encounter numerous bunkers strategically placed throughout and water hazards come into play on half of the holes. It's a challenging but fair golf course with five sets of tees making it playable for all skill levels.

Great course, great staff

Excellent conditions for winter. Greens in fine shape compared to other local courses. Always a good check-in experience, too.

Greens punched/sanded - Cart paths only

Woodlands 18 closed for the winter. Links greens sanded/punched last week. Poor putting surface currently . Carts not allowed off cart paths which makes for maybe more walking than just using a push cart .(although some players refuse to adhere to the rules & went wherever they wanted.)Quite a few folks on the Links course.
