Port Townsend Golf Course offers one of the best values on the Olympic Peninsula. It is located in the heart of the historic Victorian Port. The nine-hole layout has a classic design that will appeal to players of all skill levels. The course features small greens that are all bordered by trees, sand traps, or both. Bunkers can also be found along the fairways. Though it may just be nine holes, don't underestimate this course. There is a surprising amount of variety and enough challenges to please even low handicappers including dogleg holes and water hazards. The landscape also provides a variety of elevation changes, making flat lies hard to come by. Though it has more bite than your average nine-hole golf course, Port Townsend is player friendly enough for beginners to gain some confidence.

Upgraded amenities

When I played here last week, I saw that they had added a restaurant to the clubhouse but I couldn’t talk my playing partner into trying it out. Yesterday, I was with someone else so we stopped after nine holes for lunch. The food was good, the price was reasonable, and the service was friendly.

Updated amenities

I’ve played here for years, but not since last fall. . Today I found that they had added a nice little restaurant in the clubhouse. The menu was comparable with other courses and the service was great. The course has always been a good value for the price and this just makes it nicer.

Round August 17th

Decent round. My first nine went well, and then I teamed up with a few other players my second nine but didn't do so well. But I still had fun regardless.

First Time Playing

Good for the money

The first time on this course is a little confusing. Once you understand that it's a nine hole course with 18 tee boxes, it is more understandable. Therefore, there are 18 tee boxes signs with different yardages. You run across these signs for the back nine while playing the front 9.
I would have preferred the fairways mowed a little more closely, and those prolific little white daisies, while not unique to this course, make locating your ball a real challenge.
It's a nice local course and I'll be back. Excellent value.

Good layout

I enjoy this course. It is hilly and has lots of trees (so many that I carry a 1-iron so I can keep my shots under the branches when I stray from the middle of the fairway). There are only 9 holes with different tees for the back 9, but there’s still more variety than in 18-holes courses I’ve played in flatter parts of the country. It stays surprisingly dry considering the wet winter weather. It’s not manicured and the amenities are limited and rustic, but I consider it a great value.

Course in surprisingly good condition

I enjoy this hilly, tree-filled course, but was a little concerned after a week of rain. However, the fairways and greens were in relatively good condition, and my shoes weren’t muddy after 18 holes. I was surprised so few people were on the course. I’m sure that this is the driest course in the area at this time of the year.

PT Golf Course is Awesome!

This is basically my home course that I play. It is challenging, but every time I go there I get better and better. I usually try to come to this course around twice a week. Aside from some areas have fair to poor conditions, that doesn't bother me. Love the course as a while and will continue to play here.

Course is harder than it looks

This course may look easy because of its hole location, but it will throw you off almost every single time. Lots of fun, and I would easily love to play here again.

Poor condition

I think this course could be good rather than just fair if that committed to a rehab and maintenance program for greens. I have seen the mold etc on greens before and know it can be solved with appropriate chemicals etc. but it requires commitment to a regime and sticking to it
