The Home Course
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.

Best bang for the buck
Challenging course with tees for all skill levels. One of the best winter courses to play, great drainage and never soggy.
Scenic, fun with challenge
The Home Course is well maintained and has five tees for as much challenge and length you want. Generous fairways putting 2nd shots a premium. Good sized greens with destinct pin placements, again emphasizing 2nd shot placement. Avoid bunkers around the greens. Par 3's are definitely above average. Views of the puget sound and Mt. Rainier on hole #2&3 are a real treat. Great service and staff really promotes the game of golf with great ethic.
Great round with friends
For some reasons it always rains when I play The Home Course. Not today finally. I enjoy the layout at 6000 from the whites. As an almost Super Senior golfer it is a good distance at sea level for me to play. Course was in very good shape greens rolled well although a couple were a little “chewed” up. Is it too much to ask to fix your ball marks.
Only real negative is traffic through and around Tacoma. Leave plenty of time to get there in the morning going north after your round will most likely take more time.
First time at the Home Course
After hearing a lot about the Home Course, I had the opportunity to play it. The course was in good condition and the greens were a bit bumpy (some moss/different grass in spots) but otherwise rolling well. We did have backups on some of the par 3’s but the rangers were out ensuring that everyone was sticking to the pace of play. Wide fairways, but the fescue in the rough was difficult if you wandered too far off of the fairways. The weather was fantastic and the views were spectacular. I am looking forward to making it down again for another round soon.
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.
it was mid-winter? kinda expect variable green conditions in winter.
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.
Good course, even if was sandy
Had great time playing,, only problem was on golf now it didn't say the greens where being airifide but the pro shop was nice and took care of us for on a cart so felt they made effort to make up for error weather it was there's or golf nows. Nice course otherwise
Beautiful day for golf
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
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.
