Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Washington offers two championship courses, the Olympic and Cascade, both of which are known as two of the best public courses in the greater Seattle area. The Olympic Course is the more challenging of the two with more hills and water hazards. Dramatically sculpted from the thick Pacific Northwest forest, the driving corridors are surprisingly generous. Towering evergreens line the fairways and there are significant elevation changes throughout, making it a complete workout to walk the course. The layout's most challenging element is the undulating greens, which are often guarded by bunkers and mounding. The final four holes are the most memorable featuring a combination of water, trees, and stunning views. The final hole on the Olympic Course is a drivable par 4 that is the perfect finish to your round.

Our round of golf took 5 hours 15 minutes, waiting an average of 10 mins every shot.

It's a course with great and challenging layout, most of the time well-maintained and one that my friends would travel 50 miles to play at. But the pace of paly this time round put us off.

Not sure why the pace of play is so terrible here, waited every hole in the first week of January! Its even worse in the summer.. beautiful course though, maybe they just need to space their tee times more or get a marshall out there to keep everyone moving along. Played with sister and fiance, both who have golfed 10 times combined so we weren't some crazy fast group. Not fun playing 5 hour+ rounds.

Played a casual round with a cart in 3.5 hours. Course was generally in good shape despite recent rains and greens that appeared to have been punched 30+ days ago. Other than some fuzzy greens, my wife, who had never played the course before, and I enjoyed the round which had some challenging pin positions.

Beautiful course and layout! Very wet and chilly but sunny! Told to keep cart on paths only! Started on 10th great pace after turn another story! Play bogged down even with observing groups driving carts all over the fairways! Not sure what the deal was no fun waiting on every hole! Staff was very cordial!
