Whispering Firs Golf Club
Whispering Firs Golf Club is one of two courses operated by Joint Base Lewis McChord. The other course, Eagles Pride, is located southwest of Whispering Firs. Designed by Bob Baldock in 1962, Whispering Firs opened on what was then McChord Air Force Base and later became part of Joint Base Lewis McChord. Though it's a military golf course, it's open to the public but don't forget to check in with security at the visitor's center. The layout features well manicured fairways lined with mature trees and challenging rough. The small greens demand accuracy and are made even more difficult with strategically placed bunkers framing the edges. There are some tough doglegs that require conservative play, and water hazards come into play as well. Whispering Firs Golf Club will test a variety of skills but it's not an overly punishing course. Players of all skill levels will be able to enjoy a round here.

Golfed with my wife. Pro shop was awesome experience. Course was in great shape. Guards at the gate where super cool. The front nine was slow. The group ahead of us a couple dropped off after nine. We immediately caught the next group. I noticed there was no group in front of them. We caught up to them and I asked if we could play through. Then all three of them in there twenty’s and there dump tattoos. Attacked like dogs. Being a 50 year old with multiple sclerosis and with my wife I got scared. All three of the cowards told me they would kick my but. I apologized and literally begged them not to beat me up. We jumped a hole and played fast.
Please change your GolfNow picture!!!!
Please reach out to GolfNow and change that picture that accompanies your course reservation.
That is the ugliest #*%ing golf swing I’ve ever seen at that point in the mechanics of the swing. Please change to a picture of the course or something. Just change that picture. It makes me want to go break all my clubs. You have a nice course there. Don’t wreck it by advertising that Dorf like golf swing. I can’t imagine the pro at the course created that swing look in lessons. Just use the PGA Logo or a picture of squirrel digging up acorns.
Beautiful and challenging
The course is nestled in the woods and is not only beautiful but challenging. The greens had just been punched and sanded so I didn’t really get to experience them. I will definitely golf here again.
Great course with a few challenging holes
The check-in process at the gate may take some time if first time here. Other than that, great course with less people, i love it.
This is a good track once you jump through the hoops of getting on base. I will definitely play it again. Multiple opportunities to work for ball left and right, only thing I found gimmicky was the 11th hole which is a par five, but kind of took driver Out of your hand off the tee.
For a lot of Washington rain the course was not bad at all it drained extremely well green was slow due to weather but better then a lot of wet courses I’ve ever played on
I like the challenge of this course
Draw and fade shots are great here if you can hit them. Overall one of my favorite courses in Washington state.
Great course and easy for walking
We had to go through in-processing at the visitors center so make sure you bring your enhanced ID and your patience. Great course and not many people playing it so the pace was up to us.
Whispering “”out off there mouths.
Wouldn’t let us in. What a joke. Want my money back.
Understaffed on a Saturday? Only have 3 people on staff? The worst course couldn’t have that.
McChord AFB requires security to get thru the gate. Perhaps you should have inquired about that first; not assuming you would have free access. An enhanced drivers license or a passport would have sufficed. Actually, many of the reviews for Whispering Firs are highly recommended. Hope you have a better experience next time.
Greens were soft throughout the day despite being in the high 80s. Fairways forgiving and wide.
The only reason I play here is the Golf Now Hot Deals. Great price for 18 holes with a power cart. Other than that not much to rave about. If all other courses in my area have tournaments or no available tee times then I might book a round at Whispering Firs.
Greens need improvement. Fairways are chopped up. Players need to take more time fixing their ball marks and divots. Course layout is good and the amenities are good. Plan on spending 15 to 30 minutes checking in at the visitor's center.
Could not get in
Tried to call your company when I got home because my wife couldn't getin to play because they wanted enhanced drivers license!! Called the number on your website to get money back wait would have been THREE HOURS!!! Call again this AM and was the same time wait. So golfer be a
Very challenging course
Other than the slight hassle getting on base, the course was worth playing. Lots of challenging holes with fast greens. The pace of play was about a 4 hour round.
