Foster Golf Links
Located just 15 minutes south of Seattle, Foster Golf Links meanders alongside the Duwamish River in Tukwila. Opened in 1925, it was one of the first public golf courses on the west coast. In 2004, the City of Tukwila spent almost $5 million on a complete renovation of the course and a new clubhouse with a pro shop and banquet facilities. The renovation included the addition of tees, reconstructing of several greens, and a complete rebuild of the 10th fairway. The layout has a classic links design with tight fairways and undulating greens. The river comes into play on several holes. Foster Golf Links has a blend of straightforward holes and challenging holes, making it accessible for players of all skill levels. It is also one of the best values in the area.

Great way to social distance
I really appreciate Foster allowing us from riding in separate carts during this time. No extra charge, just a cart without question. Not all courses are doing that, they should and Foster should be thanked for stepping up and making a great day of golf available for us during this time.
Thanks so much for the stellar review. We are doing what we can during this time to accommodate to everyone and will continue to do so. Thanks again for coming out, and we look forward to having you back here soon!

Chilly winter day
Great day to play. Low 40s but dry. Very few players so pace was excellent. I like the course.

fun at Fosters
I enjoy playing this course because it is not too long ,but plenty challenging. The staff are great, and the course is in fantastic shape for this time of year especially the greens. It is one of my favorite courses to play
Thanks so much for the great review! We are so pleased you had such a wonderful time, and we cannot wait to see you back here again soon!
Great training ground...
Easily one of the best short course to fine-tune your short game before a tournament or so. Even kick off your golf season next year on this course like a warm up. Right now, muddy/very wet but playable. Mark, clean ball, place is mandatory for each pre-shot. Great value for the run. Good bar. Great staff. Great location. Cheers.

Short course great for seniors easy to walk but still challenging
Foster is a fun course to play, and a great spot to take golfers who do not hit the ball long and you like an easy walk. Or if you want to play 18 well under 4 hours. It’s fun course, while there are a few difficult holes, it is by no way a difficult course. Three of the Ppar 3's are over water. Hole #6 is a long Par4 425 yds The rest of the Par4's are short, 300 yds or less, but you have to hit down the middle on the narrow tree lined fairways. Both holes 14 and 15 are short Par 4's , 250 yds or less but you need shape the ball around two huge trees to hit the greens from the tee. The clubhouse and staff are great. Billy Baroo’s, the course restaurant, has excellent food, 20 beers on tap and a large outdoor patio next to the course.
Thanks so much for the review! We strive to create a wonderful experience, and we're so glad you had one. We hope to see you back here soon!
Fun and fast
Have now played Foster a few times this fall. Overall well maintained and laid out. I am not a long hitter, so I appreciate that it is a shorter course. The shorter par 4s and the par 3 are laid out to be kind of tricky so there are definitely challenges there, especially for a new golfer like me. Pace of play has been good, with 18 holes taking about 3 hours, Tee time bargains are also to be had, making it even better!
Hi, biwaracing. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time at Foster Golf Links. We look forward to seeing you at the course soon for another 5-star experience!
This isn’t the best review as the day we played there it had been raining in Seattle for a week. It was raining the day we played. The course itself looks pretty fun, but there was a ton of standing water all over the course from the rain. I would love to come back in the summer and play the course when it is on its best shape. Staff was great and the bar/restaurant at the club house was good.
Beautiful sunny fall day
Had a great fall day playing golf. Unfortunately the 4-some ahead of us thought it was the day to "practice" play. 2 or 3 hits per stroke. But, the weather was great, course was in great shape. Best day playing there, I made it over both water traps.

It's very short and some of the holes are pretty easy but it is usually in great shape and it certainly was today.
