Nile Shrine

Although only 5100 Yds tougher than you would expect. Some of the holes are a little funky but overall, they take really good care of the course.

NIle has some great holes

I have played Nile 20 years. Always enjoy the quirky starting uber short par 4s - but narrow with trouble- the couple of really tough but good and fair golf holes and the overall solid conditions and greens. IT never is a let down - good and close to Seattle - no houses or anything to deal with aside from golf. It was playing firm yesterday and #3 (wish you could FEEL the lake more from the tee - probably not allowed to limb that up to show off the water) is a BEAR when you cant stop the drive from outrunning the dogleg. The 6th hole is also a GREAT short par 3 - to a green that needs to be approached from the front. #8 is a great hole, #12 is a beast. #15 - 17 is a nice, NW routing that rewards well played, conservative shots. But begs you to hit driver and see what you can score.

For the value, location and the FUN round, Nile is tough to beat.

Local gem

I mistakenly thught this was a private course for many years, but fortunately discoved mid-summer that it is public. While not a particularly long track, it provides enough variety to challenge lower handicappers and yet is approachable for beginners. Course conditions through the three times I've played during the second half of the summer are far superior to other municipal and ppublic courses in the Seattle to Everett corridor.

Day at the Nile

Nile is a fun place to get in a round after work. Good value course with a couple of goofy holes to start out but, overall a fun place to play.
