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.

Hooked up with three other gentleman

It was slow as I was playing alone, a two some joined up with me on the 3rd hole. Then a single joined us on the 4 th hole tee box. There was a threesome infront of us we waited on, but they also waited on a foursome. It was a busy afternoon so it was a little slow. Coarse was in good shape considering the rain we had the day before.

Only if you have no where else to play!

I only ever play this course if it’s a last minute booking! On multiple occasions I’ve had an hour wait for a cart. And they won’t tell you until after you pay that every cart they have is on the course. Also they will allow tee times to wait and hold up other tee times until they get their carts. It is beyond infuriating when you have a 1020 tee time and don’t get a cart until 1130. The club house manager is a real A-hole. No sympathy for the S-show they have going on there. Will not be back. I’d rather skip playing that weekend then give them anymore of my money! The course is what you would expect for $40. Some greens are torn up really bad. And the layout on 17 and 18 is terrible.

17/18 redo

This course I fun to play until you get to 17 and 18. Tee boxes are next to each other which creates problems. Folks teeing off at the same time, extra noise on the tee in addition that you have to backtrack to get to the 18th tee. People on 17 have to wait for folks to clear out.
Easy solution. 18 is the third par 5 on the back 9. No need for 3 par 5’s. Turn 18 into a par 4 and move the tee box up on the hill. That would eliminate all the interference from needing to go back down next to 17 tees.
The carts are over priced. $15 per rider is a lot. We usually walk but my wife pulled a long shift the night before and got in after midnight.
