Allenmore Golf Course is located in the heart of Tacoma but thanks to the beautiful setting with Mt. Rainier serving as a backdrop, it feels like it's actually miles from the city. The layout is just over 6,000 yards from the back tees and though it's not particularly long, it offers plenty of variety. It's a course where you'll have to use every club in your bag. Trouble lurks at almost every turn in the form of doglegs, trees, or out-of-bounds. Water hazards also come into play. With uphill, sidehill, and downhill lies, the course is never boring and while there are some challenging holes, there are also birdie opportunities if you play strategically. In addition to the golf course, Allenmore also has a short-iron driving range and a practice facility with chipping and putting greens.

Fall Golf

Had a fun round of golf. Anytime you can golf rain-free here in the fall is good day. Course was in good shape. Greens were fast. Pace of play was good.

Wet weather

Wet golf better than no golf

Rainy, off and on, with monsoon starting on the 18th tee. Course was in great shape, especially considering how wet it has been lately. No standing water, grass in great shape. Glad I came out, despite the sketchy weather forecast.

Favorite Public Course in Tacoma

Allenmore is my favorite Tacoma public course. The course design and layout is pretty good and fun to play. It’s hard enough to be somewhat challenging but it’s not so hard that it’s not fun. Only negative really is that it gets busy and can get a little beat up in the summer.

Course was in good shape, but greens rolled slower than practice area. Good course for any skill level. Reasonably priced and easy to get to.
