Great Course Poor Staff

Golf course was in great condition for November! Only complaint would be if you pay for a beer and they try to give it to you half filled with foam you shouldn’t receive an attitude for telling them to re pour or you don’t want it! Learn to pour a beer out of a tap... tilt cup then pour, straighten as you fill!

Good pace of play

Pace of play was good for a Saturday 11:30 tee time. Food and drink service was excellent. The one negative was we had to wait to get a cart.

Best thing in Spanaway?

I dont' spend a lot of time in the Spanaway area, but after playing Lake Spanaway that might change a bit.

Played there for the first time on a weekday and while there were a good number of golfers, it wasn't packed and the pace of play was excellent. Walking we got around in 4 hours.

I really enjoyed the layout, there are a couple really pretty holes and a couple par 4's that are quite a challenge. I enjoyed ending the round with a blind tee shot that I wish I would have hit better than I did.

The greens were in very good shape, but I struggled with both speed and the read, but I am finding that with all the greens in the area after a couple of decades golfing in Arizona. Simply put, it was my fault that I putted poorly, not the courses.

I like that they keep the under brush at a minimum, an errant tee shot can be found, trust me, I know first hand. If I had one criticism I would like to see a little more water on the course and the water that is there was really stagnant looking. I believe that there are fountains in some of them but none of them were turned on when we played.

I will definitely be back, it was a great price for a very walkable course that offers both straightforward and challenging holes.

Lake Spanaway - Hardpan Course

I had a discount coupon which made it worth it. Otherwise I would play there. Very Doable but lots of hardpan. Balls keep on rolling, and rolling, and rolling. This would be okay if they were rolling down the fairway, but no - the hardpan is on the sides of the fairway so balls roll right on thru to the ajoining fairways.

Get the app

My favorite course around by far. It's not as challenging as some others but always fun to play. If you get the app they have weekly deals with cart food and range balls for 18 holes around 25 bucks! Try and find a better deal anywhere in Washington. Forgiving for higher handicaps like me. It's well maintained and the greens are in great shape this year.

Very Good Track

This is a good local muni. The Course is long enough and challenging enough to have hosted State Championships. It's a parkland course with huge fir and pine trees lining the fairways. It has a variety of holes, short and long that will challenge good players. The greens have been replaced and are in good shape now.
