Rating 35.2

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.

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.

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.

Great value,friendly staff,fun 9 hole course

It's always a fun & enjoyable course.The staff is always very helpful.The greens were in really good shape for this time of year.Pace was very slow because of people practicing for a tournament the next day, thankfully I had taken the day off of work so I was in no hurry at all. I always feel very welcome here.Thank you,Gabe. I will be back soon.

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.

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

Informal and relaxed

Perhaps it was the weather report (it never did rain) but I never had to wait at any time during the 18 holes. Lots of hills and trees. The greens were in good shape (there are only nine), and there was only one place where there was a chance of hitting someone's house (important to a wild swinger like me). Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Friendly Service

This course provides a good variety of shots and has great/friendly service. The rental clubs were fantastic and were well maintained. The course is cut daily, however, the mower blades missed some grass in fairways. Don't expect to get lunch on the turn unless a snickers will do it for you. Book your tee time on golf now app and you play for half the price. Smooth swinging and enjoy.

Wonderful course and great staff

I have played this course for over 15years and watched the growth. Knowing it is now under new management the course has looked better now than ever before. The price was outstanding. They have one of the lowest prices on the peninsula.. The staff was very friendly and helpful. While during my play I found that the course had great markers up for out of bounds, water hazards and all tee box markers. This 9 hole course is very challenging with small greens and lots of trees and sand traps located around every green including fare way bunkers. The course was in excellent condition.. After my play I ended up in the lounge with a ice cold beverage. Thank you the team at Port Townsend Golf Course and the director of golf Gabriel Tonan for making my visit there very memorable. I have played many golf courses in my 45 years and this one still gives me a challenge every time I have played.it

Little known gem

Although only being nine holes this course plays much more challenging than its course rating states. The fairways allow for some spraying off the tee but the greens are postage stamps. Your iron shots and wedges must be spot on to score well. This course is a lot of fun for all levels of golfer. The staff is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the game and are more than happy to answer questions. I always have fun and enjoy playing here as often as possible. It's the best value around!
