Port Townsend Golf Club
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.
Greens were very poor shape could not putt on some of them rough not cut bumpy. rented cart very poor condition seats tour up dirty broken windshield hole in it staff was very unfriendly. total a waste of time and money.
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.
Golf round march 9th
Got a quick instruction on my swing and used it to play the round. Can say that my overall round was a LOT better.
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.
Thanks RandallP1! We are thrilled to hear that you had a great time with us out on the course! We hope to have you back very soon for some more fun!
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.
Hi Gary2979140! Thanks for the review! Glad you have a great time out on the course! Hope to see you back out here again very soon!
Thanks Gary2979140 for the review! We appreciate the time you took to give some tips and feeback. Greatly appreciated! Hope to see you back out on the course some more this year!
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.
Great round of golf!
Much better day today. Fairways were cut, making for a better round. Pace was great, and I felt like all my clubs did fairly better today.
Thanks u198274323! Glad you enjoyed your time out on the course! Hope to have you back for another great round soon!
Despite my driver club was not working for me during the round, I still had a lot of fun.
Thanks u198274323! We are happy to hear you had some fun with us! Hope you'll be back for more great rounds this 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.
Hi u198274323! Thank you for the review! We appreciate the feedback, and we are thrilled to hear that you enjoy your time with us! See you back out here again soon!
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.
Hi u98274323. We are happy to hear you had fun out on the course! We can't wait to have you back out here again soon!
Great inexpensive hometown course.. nothing fancy.. felt like I was in someones back yard.. very friendly staff.. clearly a neighborhood 'hangout"..
Thanks so much for sharing your feedback! We truly appreciate the support of our community. Hope to have you back soon!
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
Thank you for the feedback. We have been working to better our greens and you're absolutely right -- it takes time and commitment which we are actively putting in and working toward improving. We hope you'll visit again.
a good afternoon
Out of the three courses in our area this by far the the dryer of the three
Thanks so much for taking the time to review our course! We hope to see you soon, cheers!
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.
Thanks for the feedback. Glad to hear you enjoyed the course, we work really hard to maintain our greens. Come back and see us soon!
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.
Thanks for playing and thank you for reviewing the course. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your time out here. We'll take a look at that mower blade, but rest assured we will continue to mow every morning. Come back and see us soon!
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!
