Village Greens Golf Course
Village Green Golf Course is an executive, 18-hole course located just 40 minutes north of Tacoma, off of Mill Hill Road in Port Orchard. It's known for being one of the best golf values in the area. The course has a classic design that plays tight but isn't overly punishing for the high handicapper. The small, elevated greens and narrow fairways demand accuracy. The course is ideal for beginners, offering a place to get practice with a variety of different shots. For intermediate players and low handicappers, the course is an excellent place for honing your iron play and working on your short game. There is also a practice facility available at Village Green that includes a covered driving range and putting and chipping greens.

Terrible course. You can literally stand in the middle of the course and see the entire perimeter. The greens were the only thing remotely "green" on the course. Complete disappointment and will never waste any time or money going to this course again.
Fun little local course, needs improvement.
Subpar course, may be a good value for local residents but not for serious traveling golfers. Large patches of burnt grass dot landscapes close to greens, which are deeply sloped and challenging yet to which are fun to hit wedges.
Has a driving range for practice but it is limited to irons only (as is most of the course). Needed only a 3wood, irons wedges and a putter.
Did not see a marshal ONCE during play, got stuck behind a beginner and a foursome...why did they send me out as a single? Gave up after 15 holes, glad I paid only $15 for 18.
Got lost twice playing this tightly packed course, the map and flyers from their "pro shop" helped a little, but still couldn't find the 7th tee box.
Got what I came for, had as much fun as can be expected from a non-marshalled, unwatered course.
Great Place For Beginners or to Brush Up On Your Game
Found VG when my wife decided to take up the game. Great for her, and good training course for me. We appreciate the friendly staff and low key nature and patience of fellow golfers. As a muni, this low cost little gem still could stand some tidying/upgrades to make it even better. Since many who play here are either beginners or others brushing up, I would like to see distances marked better (currently only hard-to-find 75 yd markers on the longer holes) even with paint marks on a tree or simple stakes. Also, fresh paint on markers/signs and a little attention to the tee boxes would spruce it up nicely. Don't get me wrong, I have no complaints. When I want a regulation course I go to one. Just suggesting some inexpensive, functional and esthetic upgrades that will help everyone. We are looking forward to VGs March re-opening (after winter break) as my wife could probably hit a par 3 off the tee now! Enjoy VG like we do!
I like playing par 3 course to work on short game. Unfortunately this isn't a course to do that. Most greens elevated 3-8 feet from fairway or approach area so if you don't hit the green the ball richochet's off somewhere. That's fine if you are a beginner or just starting but when working on approach shots like low spinners, bump and runs, and high soft landings you only have on choice. Greens are slow too. Fun course if just starting or going out to good around. If you want some par 3 practice I'd recommend Highlands over this.
Charbro...bite me. I’m a single digit handicap and give honest reviews. Don’t rip on courses too much and don’t make them sound like Taj Mahal either. But Village Greens is not a good course for short game work when so many holes have elevated greens just to make it a challenge.
great course. could be the the players skill level verse the course. If the course is tuff for some maybe that should inspire more play.
Quaint easy course
They do not water the fairways so they are dry and if you don't want to ruin a club you may have to move your ball off the rocks here and there. Everyone is very pleasant and enjoyable. Most people only need bring a 3, 5 and 9 iron and putter.
The course is in great shape . An excellent place to keep your skills honed and doesn't take half the day to play.
Short Game and Itons
Very nice executive course. Fairways blooming with white flowers made it difficult to find ball. Small , elevated greens a challenge. Overall course in very good condition. Great value !!
Adequately challenging course for us three seniors trying to play straighter and better. Walking was not any problem, and took little less than 3 hours. We'll be back. Just wished it to be closer to home!
Course in good shape never pushed
Good deal for the money, short course get on get off in good time
Good for a short day to play.
As always, this is my favorite course to play. Never overcrowded. Easy to walk entire course.
DONT TAKE FOR GRANTED
This course will test your mid-short game. Drivers can be too much if you hit long or cant keep it down the fairway. Great course to work on your irons.
the greens are elevated
Getting on the green and staying is difficult, the greens are small and elevated. The course is walkable for those who can not walk a 72 par course,
Great little short course.
The fairways were very dry, but it has been a dry summer. The greens were small but well taken care of.
This course is a great place to work on your irons.
great practice course and great for a lunch break. can be played easily under 2hrs .
Love this course for practice rounds. I don't have to kill the ball or myself to get to the greens. Almost every green is within my 3/4 swing :)
Great beginner course or short game practice
Village Greens is a great beginner course because most the holes are short, but it is still challenging for most bogey golfers because of the tight fairways, large trees, and small greens. It's a great course for anyone to work on their short game, and you can walk 18 in about 2-1/2 hours. Don't come out here with expectations to use your driver much (although there are a couple opportunities). My wife and I really enjoy this course, it's fun to play and well maintained. Also has a decent driving range and chipping/putting practice greens.
Course needs better maintenance
Greens are bumpy with unpredictable bounces, also very slow.
Fairways full of weeds, carelessly mown, very uneven.
Course layout is tight but good practice for accuracy and short game.
I played in March, and while other courses are mostly gooey mud, Village Greens was not. All of the greens are raised, so they drain well. The greens were also immaculate. A great course for the short game.
par 3 coarse great for practicing your game.I agree that it is parched in summer needs more water late in the year. I play it often it's close and inexpensive
Excellent value course!
This is a smaller well-maintained course with plenty of opportunity to practice your irons. Nothing fancy. For a few dollars more than the cost of a bucket of balls you can play 18 holes - what a deal!
