Length 6861 yards
Slope 140
Rating 74.0

The Resort at Port Ludlow sits along the shores of the Puget Sound with views that stretch across the Port Ludlow Bay. Located just 90 minutes from Seattle, the resort offers a luxurious waterfront inn, a marina, an award-winning restaurant, and a championship 18-hole golf course. Robert Muir Graves designed the course. He crafted a layout that challenging but rewarding, all while preserving the beautiful natural surroundings. The golf course is just one of 10 in the state of Washington that is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. During your round, you'll enjoy abundant wildlife and panoramic views of the Hood Canal and Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges. The golf course isn’t long but it's tight and will require both accuracy and strategy. Many holes are dramatically sloped and there are hazards facing you at almost every turn.

First time fun

First trip to Port Ludlow Golf. Practice areas were nice to get ready.. Course was laid out well, maintained well and played well. Not too much trouble (score increasing areas) that made it enjoyable. It was challenging but played well.

Best shape ever

We've been playing here for years and love the course. It is so peaceful and relaxed out here. Seems like you are a million miles away for the rush of the city. The improvements to the course are obvious. We commented several times on how nice the fairways and greens were. It's a first class experience on a beautiful, challenging course. The staff and food are always great too.

Great Course, Great food and Awesome Staff

When I come up to Washington I love to play this course. Lots of diversity . Somewhat challenging but rewarding. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant, Niblicks, has awesome food, especially the Club sandwich. Can’t say enough good things about halting here.

Exceptional course

I am no old pro at golf and have played courses from east to west coast and hawaii. I have to say this one was comparable to Torrey pines south course beautiful layouts , well kept fast greens , fairways were exceptional, difficulty level was high undulating fairways with several elevated greens and tee boxes. Water hazards throughout but well placed adds to the view and your skill level. I'd recommend to anyone wanting to experience golf's finest. The employees were helpful, courteous and welcoming. I got in with a group of members who showed me the ropes and welcomed me into the " fold". Thank you to everyone at the course. I'll be back soon

I really enjoy playing this course. There are some holes you can score on and others on which risk / reward needs to be more carefully calibrated.

Peaceful and classic PNW setting. I’ll be back there again soon.

A disappointing round

Last year when we booked this course through GolfNow.com, the price included a cart. This year I paid more and had to buy the cart separately. Not a good deal.
The greens had been recently sanded, the snack bar was closed, and there is no decent restaurant in the area for miles. The wet and windy weather was the crowning touch.
It was a disappointing round of golf.

Course is in Great Shape and Beautiful Surroundings

Course management has invested a great deal of time in money maintaining the course and it shows. Well groomed fairways and plush greens. Love the addition of the 150 yard sticks in the fairways. Niblics Café has great food, beverage and service. Call ahead using the # provided on the 9th tee box and pickup your food on the turn. It would be difficult to find a more professional and friendly pro shop staff, they are great. If Port Ludlow is a bit out of the way for you, do what you can to make it out for a round of golf, you won't be disappointed. If close by, come on out and enjoy a round at one of the best courses in the Northwest!

Beautiful course

It’s a beautiful course with lots of hills, trees, doglegs, and hazards. I was amazed at how few people were there on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We just sailed along through the front nine, stopped for a nice lunch, and sailed through the back nine. I was playing with my nephew from the Seattle area and he thought it was a bargain.
