Allenmore Golf Course is located in the heart of Tacoma but thanks to the beautiful setting with Mt. Rainier serving as a backdrop, it feels like it's actually miles from the city. The layout is just over 6,000 yards from the back tees and though it's not particularly long, it offers plenty of variety. It's a course where you'll have to use every club in your bag. Trouble lurks at almost every turn in the form of doglegs, trees, or out-of-bounds. Water hazards also come into play. With uphill, sidehill, and downhill lies, the course is never boring and while there are some challenging holes, there are also birdie opportunities if you play strategically. In addition to the golf course, Allenmore also has a short-iron driving range and a practice facility with chipping and putting greens.

1st at Allenmore

First time playing this course. It's been on my bucket list for awhile. Very mature course. Well run and maintained. Greens are large, many buried elephants and in my opinion difficult. I've not had 8 3-putt greens in forever. Abit on the pricey side, but would like to play it again sometime. If you haven't played, do it!

Cold and Windy

But we had a great time playing 9 holes with new friends. Wish the weather forecast had been correct. Said it was going to be sunny. When the sun was out and was fine but when the clouds rolled in and the wind picked up it was very chilly.

Nice layout. . Generally good course conditions. But

The fivesomes are ridiculous and the back nine gets backed up. Good restaurant.

GREAT shape

Allenmore was in PERFECT shape for this time of year on a sunny fall day. What a great time and value.
Worth the 45 minute drive to and from Seattle.

Nice layout

The course has some challenging greens. The greens were in great condition. Fun layout. The golf carts could use a brake job! Both of ours were very squeaky. 19th hole had a nice cold beer waiting for us.

Greens are a rolling!

This is a great public course that is a good value. The greens are rolling nice and with some unique pin placements make this a challenge going course from the back tees. Layout is simple to understand and definitely a course you can walk. Had some issues with booking during our round where they accidentally overbooked it at 6 players, but they split the groups in half and pace of play was not too bad at all. However I think pace was okay because we had some good players in the group. Course does need to make sure they are not overbooking because I’ve seen them accept many singles into overbooked groups. Overall, a great value and good public course to play.

Greens were rolling nicely

A mixture of twosomes, threesomes and foursomes moved around the course with relative ease. The holes are side by side so some players in wrong fairways at times. Caught the course on a morning of light showers but it still played fine. The greens were in good shape and the rest about average except for the bunkers which were very solid and firm. The check in guy was informative and the bartender was a sweetheart, good draft beer choices and good food.

Challenging course

Fun course to play and enjoy the layout. They could use a marshall to speed up pace of play. We waited on every tee box and most fairways. Several walkers who acted like they were on a Sunday stroll.

Early rounds

Love this course, only thing that could be better is if the restaurant opened early enough for morning tee times...they don’t open until 11:00?

Prices do not compete this year with nicer courses

I'd love to come play again, but I can not justify paying twice as much to play a lesser course. I'm retired, but I do not qualify as a senior citizen for most things yet. Before this year I could book before 7:00 or 8:00 or 9:00 and get a better price, even over the phone than I can get this year. Love the course, but the bottom line is 2 times at Druids is better than once at Allenmore.

Decent round

Overall a decent round of golf, however I am sick and tired of the staff telling me how much the round is when the reservation tells you a different price. They don't care and force you to pay whatever they say. Fix your pricing tool and be fair, and stop berating customers about the prices. There are no added taxes that you make up, its rubbish.
