Rating 74.7
White Horse Golf Club has one of the toughest courses in the Northwest. Situated on the Kitsap Peninsula, the course is located just five minutes south of the Kingston ferry terminal. The course sits on the Puget Sound between the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, offering panoramic views on every hole. When the Suquamish Tribe bought the club in 2010, one of their top priorities was to make the course more playable. They enlisted John Harbottle for the job, a local architect who has designed several layouts throughout the state. By taking out nearly half of the bunkers, he opened up the greens and made them more approachable. He also widened the fairways and made the landing areas more generous. Since the update, White Horse Golf Club has become one of the most popular on the peninsula.

One of the driest winter courses

White Horse is one of the driest winter courses in the state, today, a week before Christmas you could still warm up on the grass range and it was not in the least way muddy considering how much rain we’ve had the last couple of days. The entire course was in great shape and the greens are in excellent shape. More than worth the ferry trip over.

Hidden Gem

We were surprised to see so few golfers on a Saturday but really enjoyed the round. Very challenging layout but if you pick the right tees it is doable. Barely saw anyone in front or behind us and finished in just over four hours. Greens were fabulous and the course was quite dry despite recent rain. Definitely putting this course in our rotation even though it involves a ferry ride for most of us.

Excellent Fall Course

Course is in great condition. Greens were sanded three weeks ago so that’s not a problem. Overall the course is in great shape and very dry. Highly recommended!

Nice day despite mosquitoes

Nice early AM round at White Horse. Fairly empty and played at a comfortable 3.5 hour pace. No one's fault, but there were tons of mosquitoes--pack a can of bug spray. Beverage cart staff didn't have any. A little dampness after some drizzle before play but that was probably perfect after dry weather. Nice conditions overall. Had lunch after in the clubhouse and it was very nice with good food and a pleasant outdoor table overlooking the signature 18th hole. Price of round includes tax but not range balls (shared a $10 large basket).

Slow play

Very nice course with some challenging holes, greens, tee boxes,and fairways all in very good shape but the play was super slow we saw the drink cart 4 times but never saw a ranger 5hrs and 10min to play waiting every hole. I don't think they were over booked just a very slow foursome in line and no one to move them along.

Another Amazing Day at White Horse Golf Course

You cannot beat the NW in the summer. Make a golf adventure into the perfect day, go to White Horse Golf Course. The day starts by walking onto a ferry with your clubs, the staff at the course picks you up and takes you to the course. The course was in amazing shape.
