The Classic Golf Club in Spanaway sprawls across rolling hills blanketed with towering Douglas firs. Located just 30 minutes south of Tacoma, it is one of the area's hidden gems, offering not only a beautiful natural setting but also a challenging round. The layout features elevated greens, tree-lined fairways, and ponds and wetlands that come into play on several holes. The greens are the most challenging element of the golf course. Some are small, which is tough enough to maneuver as it is, and most are framed by mounding. Sand bunkers also provide contrast against the smooth and fast-rolling greens. The Classic is a challenging course but still playable for all skill levels.

Restroom - none for women???

Really? In 2018 it is unacceptable that there is a men’s bathroom with more than one stalll. (Per my husband)!but one a one stall family restroom for women. It wasn’t very welcoming.

Great Layout, HUGE GREENS!

My wife & I played The Classic Golf Club in Spanaway, WA last Saturday. We arrived well before our tee time and the friendly staff in the pro shop were able to get us off the tee within 45 minutes. The course is fairly hilly and fairways are tree lined. The greens are well bunkered, contoured and huge. There are parts of many greens you will not see from the fairway. The course was in pretty good condition overall though the roughs are a bit messy.

I would recommend this course to anyone. It's challenging without being too hard. A short straight hitter will have better luck here than a long hitter who sprays the ball and being able to navigate large undulating greens will help a lot too. Great value!

Tough day on nice course

Tough course with challenging large greens. I've always liked this course, but wish they would have monthly pay as you go memberships. With injuries and winter travel it will never make sense for me to sign a 12 month contract anywhere.

nice layout-horrible weather

I love the layout and difficult greens. I think getting rid of the trees was a good idea especially when the stumps get overgrown some. the greens are tricky and fast even in rainy winter weather. cant wait to play it in summer

Good course to challenge yourself

We played right after a frost delay so some of the greens were still frozen and some were really good but if it wasn't for the frost I assume the greens would have been in amazing shape. The course layout is perfect for anyone because you can play from the whites and play it easy or go back to the black or blues to really challenge yourself.

nice course to play for mod. skilled player.

Since the course has cleared out a bunch of trees, it makes it much more friendly to the avg. golfer.

It was a very nice place to spend the afternoon on a Friday. Not too crowded, weather was really good for Nov.11th--( tee shirt/shorts were plenty )
