Type Public
Par 72
Length 7424 yards
Slope 135
Rating 74.8

The Home Course in DuPont is considered one of the best public golf courses in Washington. Throughout the walkable layout, golfers will enjoy scenic views of the Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, and Mount Rainier. It's a long course at 7,424 yards from the back tees. The challenging greens play fast and true, and they are complemented by wide fairways with generous landing areas. There are several challenging holes where you'll face strategically placed bunkers and subtle, but tricky elevation changes. The golf course begins with a few open, parkland holes and then it gets more challenging. The seventh hole is one of the toughest, starting from an elevated tee to a green that is neatly tucked behind a lake. The final holes provide stunning mountain views for a memorable finish.

This is a great course and a lot of fun to play. Some of the holes have a view of Puget Sound and are fairly open. Needs a club house.

Greenskeeper taking the winter off

Greens hadn't been cut in the months. There should've been some sort of warning about the greens. hour long drive to get to the course. If you're not gonna cut the greens for months there should be some sort of a warning. There may be a good reason for it but the general public should be warned or some sort of discount for poor conditions.

Wet Windy Northwest Winter Fun

Was the weekend before Christmas and all I wanted to was golf . So I did. I got on GolfNow and booked a round at the home course for $25. The Forecast was 45 degrees and windy and rainy. Didn't stop me from wearing shorts and enjoying this course. Even after all the rain we had in the area the course only had maybe one soggy spot and it was off the beaten path...About 15 yards from where I wish my ball was.

I will hopefully be able to pay full price next summer to experience this course in all its glory and sunshine.

I have no complaints other then they need to get a permanent club house. The trailer is not becoming of a course like the home course.

Great Fun Even Punched Greens & Rain

We knew the greens would be punched and it was going to rain. But we drive the 1+ hour drive to get there. We were not disappointed. Nice lay out, long but fair, will come back again!

challenging golf course. Approach and short game shots need to be above avergae. Greens are "normally" excellent.

Should have been stated that greens were still very sandy. Had to play automattic 2 putt. Like Sahara Dessert. Wasn't worth the $$$ even though cart was included.

Expected aerated greens per the GN warning, but was pleasantly surprised to find they had postponed it to the following week. Course was in great shape.

Feeling a little SPACEY...

Big greens and lots of opportunities to miss off the tee and still be in good shape. This place is "scorable" and "spacey" :)

You will enjoy this walk if you decide to pack or push. All slopes are gradual and short. You get some solid views of the Olympics and Rainier is your back drop on many holes. Only by walking will you get an appreciation for the rolling fairways.

You get a little bit of everything here: challenging par 3's over waste areas or water, Par 4's that require accuracy opposed to length, Par 4's that let you bomb away, and very getable Par 5's.

Everything that makes a course fun, you can find at The Home Course.

I've played here twice and both times the course has been in great condition. In the summer, these fairways will ROLL.

THC has one of the best practice putting greens you will find. The practice chipping area and range are also well above average. Everything is grass (no mats) and well groomed.

To sum this up...

Greens: large, fast, & a great deal of small hills and undulations
Fairways: Large & forgiving

Enjoy.

So-so and so slow

Greens not smooth due to mixed grass; fairway turf too short and thin; 5-hour round despite a Marshall on duty. Lay-out is interesting and challenging with some great views.

loved it! wind and all

I loved the layout and true links style bunkering. greens are challenging but nice. not too fast when i played them. my playing partner said he liked it as much as chambers bay links, but chambers bay is on a different level as far as difficulty, scenery and overall "bigness", but it is a US open course after all. but i will return and it was really worth the long drive. oh and loved the wind!! after all its part of the game

Don't play in windy conditions

Very disappointing experience. I've played The Home Course several times, the last time about four years ago. I remember it as a beautiful, lush, and well-maintained course with an appealing layout, which provided a great round of memorable golf.

I was enthusiastic to return for a round when the exceptionally low rate for a tee time was offered. At that time (about a week before), the weather was forecast to be 78 degrees and 6 mile an hour winds — PERFECT! I'm a fair-weather golfer, so I was good to go.

Unfortunately, the weather changed dramatically in the two days before my round to rainy, very windy and cool (around 60 degrees). I made an appeal to both Golf Now (two days ahead) and directly to the course (the morning of) to see if I could switch the date, as rain, thunderstorms and windy conditions were in the forecast for the day of play. Neither were ready to make any exceptions, so I was stuck with the tee time, or would forfeit my (fortunately modest) payment.

It was also a 1-1/4 hour drive each way to the course and back home, so I didn't want to drive that far only to play in dubious weather and poor conditions and perhaps not get a full round in.

Once at the course, I was paired with three others who also booked the time (I was a single, so am always at risk of a questionable pairing). Unfortunately —and with no blame to either Golf Now or the course —, it became clear on the first hole of play that the others couldn't stop talking while I was addressing the ball at the tee, on the approach, or on the green, which made it impossible to concentrate and get into a rhythm. When I made an appeal to them for some normal etiquette about that (we're talking about 10 or 20 seconds of quiet — then they could talk all they wanted!), they wouldn't agree, which made things tense. So much for that.

We played on and I did my best to tolerate it, but felt uncomfortable for most of the remainder of the round (at the end of the round, one of the other players revealed to me that he had only been playing for a year or two and didn't realize that it was proper etiquette to keep quiet when someone was preparing to make a swing). Anyway...

Never felt comfortable or concentrated because of the conflict and consequently didn't play very well (too much in my head!). And while it fortunately never did rain during the round (though it did just before), the winds were a BIG factor — around 25mph for at least 8 holes and a bit less for the others. I'd hit a drive straight out, and the wind would take the ball 50 yards right or left! Not much fun.

Also, the condition of the course was not as impressive as I remembered from past visits. Also worth noting is that it is not an easy walking course, as there are several holes that have very long distances to walk to the next tee (though that was not an issue for me, as I had a riding cart).

The net result: I probably won't be returning any time soon to play there again. If I'm going to drive that far for a round, I'll likely opt for Gold Mountain, which is only a 5-minute longer drive from my home and I KNOW I'll have a great time there.

This whole experience could have easily have been flipped to a positive one if Golf Now and/or the course could have made a one-time exception for a reasonable request. You have one chance to impress a customer, or risk losing their business ahead. Customer service is EVERYTHING! Anyway, live and learn...
