Rating 62.8
Type Public
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.

Overbooked

Fosters is a good course and twilight is a good rate. However, they overbook the course. We couldn’t play 18, which we paid for. Yes, it is twilight, but they started the men’s club on hole 10, making it a half hour wait between holes, so we walked off. It was a waste of time, gas and money.

The pace was much better than the last time. We followed a tournament both times and no more delays than a regular round. The lady in the clubhouse was very friendly. course was in very good shape. Will be back!

Usually a fun course

The average golfer can use the Driver 14 times at this track, then short irons in, then putt on decent greens. Lotta walkers, no marshals, slowish play, so...once in a while, OK experience. All of the courses are pricier this year than in past golf seasons.

Great round, enjoyed the layout

Haven't played Foster in a few years. Pace was slow as there was a large group in front of us. Green is great shape for July.
