I really like this course

This is the closest 18 hole course to our house. Since picking the game up again I have been using their practice facilities a lot, they have a good driving range and I really like their practice greens, and I finally got out to play a full 18 hole round yesterday afternoon.

I went out as a single and was paired up with another single and a twosome, all of which were only playing 9 holes. I am not sure why but they had us start off on 10 and we played the back 9 first and IMO I think that this is how the course should be laid out, I thought that holes 1 through 9 are actually better holes than 10-18.

The course was in really good shape, but a few places marked and ground under repair, but the fairways were in good shape and the greens seemed to be in good shape, but to be honest, after many years of playing golf in Arizona I still haven't figured out how to put on the greens up here in Western Washington.

The pace of play started out good but after a few holes we were backed up on each hole. After the turn I was invited to play through 2 groups, as I was a single at this point, and joined a 3some for the last 3 holes.

I really like this course. When you haven't played any real golf in a number of years, and are just starting to get out regularly again, this course offers a good amount of challenge. Most holes are not friendly to a slice, and right now I am tending to slice to more than I would like, but it is motivation to correct that bad habit.

Very nice course!!!

We've played Tumwater before and didn't have a problem with the "pace of play" but this time it was right after the US Open and I guess everyone had to come out and play. We had a group of four in front of us and a single behind us and it bunched things up.

The staff is very friendly, IMO.

This course is a fun summer course.

Played this course on a Monday. The pace was great for the first 5 holes then it slowed down noticeably. There are some fun holes that reward you for a long drive, but will eat you up if you have a tendency to slice. The fairways and greens were firm, but green and the pin locations were challenging. It was an enjoyable round of golf and I would definitely play this course again.

Extremely slow pace.

This is the second time I've played here and on both occasions it has been painfully slow. Great course but I wouldn't head out unless you have five hours to burn.

Nice course

Greens were bumpy from recent aeration. Ball plugged from most drives that hit fairway. Expected that from spring golf, should improve with warmer days. From what I saw, the practice facilities were more than adequate. Would golf here again.

This course was an awsome course to play at

This was an awesome course to play. Wide open for the beginner golfer. Descent green fees and the bar has great food and decently priced drinks. Will definitely play this course again!

Great value course

Except for the freshly punched and sanded greens this was still a great value. The fairways were in mid-season shape and the pace was well managed. Kudos to all the staff.

Good Round

This is the second time I've played this course. The weather was overcast but dry. The course played nicely. I gave the course a 4/5 because it lacks certain features, which keep things interesting (water hazards, elevation changes, bunkers in front of the green). However, for the price, this is a great course that is kept in nice shape.

ok course

Greens were good, but course was kind of a goat track. Rough tee boxes and fairways. In short, an ok course if youre in a pinch.

No Cart

I paid online and when I got there they didn't have a cart ready. In fact the guy before me had waited for an hour and still didn't have a cart. We both had prepaid and they didn't reserve a cart for us. They did give us a free round, but I had to walk. Now in my case walking was not possible because of some boring conditions that I won't go into.
