Style Executive
Par 62
Length 3255 yards
Slope 90
Rating 58.5

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.

Village 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!

Not realistic

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.

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.

Surprise find!

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!

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.

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.

Great Greens

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!
