Course Description:

A public, links-style, 18 hole course situated overlooking the Puget Sound near Tacoma. The fescue greens and fairways mimic the traditional links courses of Scotland, but the huge elevation changes set it apart from every other links course in the world. The long teeing grounds and wide fairways give this course the ability for incredible variety, and playing each day (Thursday-Sunday) will reveal 4 very different setups for each hole on the course. When the wind picks up, this course really shines. The slopes, mounds, sideboards, and backboards around the greens can be creatively used to approach otherwise difficult pin locations. Those with patience and creativity will be rewarded with a very enjoyable challenge.

Member Reviews:

What a round!  I really had fun playing this course.   I felt this RCR required tremendous thought and patience  to successfully replicate Chambers Bay and clearly the designer ezecuted this feat in a real world/ real feel for the actual course.  Especially noticed the famous lone pine being seen from multiple holes.  I would play this course to keep at it and test your skills to  make you a better player.  Only thing is not enough feskew/grass plantings like real world course.
