Length 5930 yards
Slope 116
Rating 68.1

Located just 45 minutes southwest of Tacoma, Tahoma Valley Golf Course has garnered a reputation for being the driest course in the Puget Sound. The course boasts well manicured greens that putt fast and true. The greens showcase the best of the Northwest's undulating, bump-and-run golf. Its location provides every hole with a stunning view of Mount Rainier. Just shy of 6,000 yards from the back tees, it's not an especially long layout but it is narrow enough to present a challenge. The wide fairways are forgiving, making it player friendly enough for beginners, and there are enough challenges to please high handicappers as well. With an abundance of mature trees throughout, Tahoma Valley Golf Course demands accuracy. The par 3s are particularly memorable for both their views and level of difficulty.

Good wet weather course

My buddy and I play this course about twice a month. It was wet that day but course conditions were pretty good. I was able to chip well around the greens and the greens themselves were pretty true and fairly fast which was very surprising. Usually this time of year you run into slow greens.
We also noted that 5-6 tee boxes are getting redone which is excellent. And they will be ready by probably in the spring. It’s nice to see them doing some work on the course.

Poor conditions

Course is in dire straights. Grounds crew cannot keep the course cut properly and greens are slowest anywhere. Asking full price while course is in poor condition and under repair. Take your money elsewhere.

poor condition/ slow play

Course is very poor condition overgrown, play so slow left after 2 holes 40 mins in. Not worth the golf now discount never mind full price. I’m done with this course. Not the first time this has happened but definitely the last. Much improvement needed.

First Time Playing

Had to golf the back 9 twice. Fairway grass needs cut. Heavy sand on almost every green. Excavator working next to hole 17 the entire round.

Fun, average course

Morning tee time...Unfortunately I could only play the front nine as the back 9 was closed for maintenance when I was there. So at the turn things were getting backed up.. I will be back to play soon to hopefully play the full 18.

Uneven tee boxes

The course offers plenty of challenges and birdie opportunities. If I could change one thing it would be the uneven tee boxes on several holes. You really have to pay attention to the ball position or pay the price. I hope that they get worked on one at a time and add to the quality of the course.
We really enjoy playing this course
