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.

Another great day. Even though full sheet barely any wait time. Wind had blown tree seeds all over greens but wasn’t a big issue. Recommend this Hot Deal when available at lowest price.

Saturday was my first round at Port Ludlow Golf. All and all it was a great round, a great experience, and I will most certainly play there again.

I took advantage of the Golf Now "Hot Deal" and played this course at an absolute steal.

The practice facility was above and beyond. I arrived an hour before my tee time and fully utilized the driving range, putting green, and BOTH practice chipping areas. They skimp you on the balls though, but oh well.

Course was fantastic. No two holes touch. Almost every hole is guarded by forest on both sides. Challenging buy fun layout with bunker guarded greens, random trees that affect tee shots and fairway shots, and a crazy downhill par 3 that requires precision to "split the uprights" (trees)

CON: I will say however, there was one issue with the round, and that was that there were tiny particles (most likely buds from all the trees) covering the greens. This affected several putts, to the point that my playing partners and I started using our hats and towels to clear the paths to putt to the hole.

The grounds crew could have easily went out in the early morning with blowers and blown this off the greens.

Great round, I will be back.

Shot an 80. 42-38.

This was a great round of golf for the money. This course was in great condition, greens were reasonably fast and the overall settings of the course are just great. Some holes even have a view of the water which is an added plus. Weill be back again.

It was a warm sunny day and perfect for a round of golf.. The scenic views are amazing. Unfortunately our region has had over 5 inches of rain during the month of April. Many areas of the course were soggy. The roughs were extra long because the mowers couldn’t mow. I’ll Give this course a couple solid weeks of dry weather to dry out then play it again.

The greens are in great shape but the rest of the course is not in good condition. The fairways are extremely wet and the rough is unplayable in some spots. There was no water put out on the course and the on course bathrooms were locked, so clearly they are not yet ready for golfers. However, when the course dries out it is worth a look.

I was able to get out on the course for a great price with a cart and the course was in great condition. Only downside was it was cold as heck. The staff was great! The Hot Chocolate machine was not working when we made the turn and they got it fixed and tracked us down on he course and provided hot chocolate at no charge due to the hassle of it not working. The effort was very much appreciated.

They aerated the greens 3 weeks ago so they weren't back to great shape, but they were good. A little slower than they were during the summer when they were fast. Course is in great shape as they have done a lot of work on it the past couple years to get it back to the way it was in the early years of the course.
