Whispering Firs Golf Club
Whispering Firs Golf Club is one of two courses operated by Joint Base Lewis McChord. The other course, Eagles Pride, is located southwest of Whispering Firs. Designed by Bob Baldock in 1962, Whispering Firs opened on what was then McChord Air Force Base and later became part of Joint Base Lewis McChord. Though it's a military golf course, it's open to the public but don't forget to check in with security at the visitor's center. The layout features well manicured fairways lined with mature trees and challenging rough. The small greens demand accuracy and are made even more difficult with strategically placed bunkers framing the edges. There are some tough doglegs that require conservative play, and water hazards come into play as well. Whispering Firs Golf Club will test a variety of skills but it's not an overly punishing course. Players of all skill levels will be able to enjoy a round here.

No discount from golf now
These greens were recently punched and absolutely covered with sand. Putting was an experience! I tried several times to contact golf now and ask for an appropriate discount considering the conditions (I paid full price for two golfers). I had zero luck. The course even told me that golfers who made their tee times directly thru the course were discounted. Golfnow in my opinion, makes it very hard to reach them if you have an issue. It is however very easy to pay them. I’m very disappointed in their lack of customer service
Value for $
Check in great, staff friendly and conscientious. Got us off early. Fairways had some bare patches and greens ran true even though they recently had been treated for an infection. Would definitely play here again. Two visitors from Southern California.
Website states you need an enhanced drivers license or passport. Was unable to get on the base due to the base stating you also need a sponsor to play. Should state that on the website too. Disappointed we couldn’t play after bringing correct documentation and visiting the visitor center for access and still denied, ended up playing a local Olympia, WA course thankfully.
Would have been easier/quicker if you had called. Now you know.
Course is in good shape
Course was in good shape. Greens a little slow, but run true. Plays a little long from the white tees, so if your game is not 100% you may want to play the gold tees.
golfed with a friend
12:28 tee time, played the up tees, I was able to hit 3 wood on several par 4 holes making it an enjoyable afternoon. Starter let us play as a twosome behind what looked like a family threesome. Really enjoyed the round. Course condition overall was fantastic. I hit into a couple of bunkers but got out each time with one shot. I had no trouble reading the greens, a 20 footer on 16 going into the hole was the highlight of the round.
