I joined Fairwood in 2007. I lived near the course for 17 years and never knew how to enter the club. Therefore I thought I didn’t know any members. After I joined there were a half-dozen friends there. I came for the golf when I tired of lining up at the public course 1st tee box only to endure 5 hour+ rounds, and having to call frequently to get a tee time. The tee sheet at Fairwood is wide-open afternoons and evenings, and easy to get on each morning. I may have come for the golf but enjoy the bonus of great food, excellent facilities, family fun, and social activities.

The holes on the course are diverse and avoid the parallel tracks found in many courses as it winds through the Fairwood Greens community. The par threes are demanding, the par fives are a challenge to reach in two, and the par fours reward a good drive with a chance at a birdie putt. The greens are unmatched in the Northwest and protect par. If you like to line up a putt on a fast green, you will love playing these greens. All rounds are four hours or less.

Joined this private club last winter and have loved every minute of playing here. I joined because they offered a very reasonable membership deal where you pay a small rate per round. This is perfect for me because some months I don't get much chance to play.

The course is fairly tight with trees on both sides on most holes. Each hole is unique with a fair amount of elevation changes especially on the back. The real star of this course is the greens. They are fast, smooth and very steep in places. Lots of slope! Feels like you're playing a mini Masters Tournament with putts that break 6 feet. After a year I'm still challenged by this course due to the great greens. Top marks for food in the clubhouse and the incredibly friendly staff and other members. It's easy to get on to play too! Only 15 minutes from the airport and 25 from downtown Seattle.
