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.

Quick play

The starter was friendly, informative and prepared us with all we needed to know about conditions and other players etc. Rather amazing effort on his part. Very quick play...covid issues allowed only 2 per tee...nice. course conditions were better than average.

Great day for some winter golf

Following up on all of the rain early this year we weren’t sure what shape the course would be in. We were pleasantly surprised that there was only a little water on the course, and the greens were rolling much faster than expected. The staff in the pro shop was great and we had good service in the restaurant for drinks and then lunch after the round. We finished our round in just over 4 hours, and other than teeing off on the first hole we didn’t have to wait for the group in front of us. We will be back!

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.

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.

HOT & COLD

Been playing this course for 40 yrs & managing our DUFFERS TOUR Group for the last 10 years with this course in the weekly "Loop".
A little more spendy than the average NW Publics
Fewer "Specials" than the other local courses
Have had a real problem with food/restaurant for a long time - currently trying new management
Staff finally changed from totally stuffy/unfriendly to pleasant & welcoming.
Course condition mostly always above average except the normal wet fairways in wintertime.
Definitely will keep as a regular on our weekly course tour with: Meadow Park, No. Shore, Ft Lewis, Madrona, High Cedars, Spanaway!
