Rating 74.0

The Resort at Port Ludlow sits along the shores of the Puget Sound with views that stretch across the Port Ludlow Bay. Located just 90 minutes from Seattle, the resort offers a luxurious waterfront inn, a marina, an award-winning restaurant, and a championship 18-hole golf course. Robert Muir Graves designed the course. He crafted a layout that challenging but rewarding, all while preserving the beautiful natural surroundings. The golf course is just one of 10 in the state of Washington that is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. During your round, you'll enjoy abundant wildlife and panoramic views of the Hood Canal and Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges. The golf course isn’t long but it's tight and will require both accuracy and strategy. Many holes are dramatically sloped and there are hazards facing you at almost every turn.

Golfnow hot deal overpriced

Got to the pro shop and found out the Hot Deal on Golfnow was $20 ea overpriced
They charged us $20 a seat for the cart for a total of $90 ea for the round
The pro shop price was $70 including cart
Won’t book again with Golfnow without checking course pricing first

Great day at Ludlow

We played the gold/white combo tees with hickorys. The greens were exceptional especially for this time of year. The fairways were firm. The lowland holes were firm as well.
They are continuing to clear the adjacent areas so the course feels open but you have to keep it in the right place off the tee to be open to the green.
Fun place to play.

Amazing Golf Course

First time playing this course, it was in incredible shape for late August. Holes are not super long, but very few of them are straight so you have to be strategic off the tee. If you’re in the fairway, you can score a bunch. Off the fairway things get dicey with the trees though. I used my driver maybe 3 times all day.

Not too many hazards but there are a few, and overall an incredible course and can’t wait to come back. Hidden gem.

Great layout

Course was in good shape. Challenging course and many blind shots. Not a very forgiving course, but plenty of birdie opportunities. Encourage reading the pro tips prior to playing. Greens roll a bit slower, but well taken care of. Walkable course. 9/18 are steep climbs, but not to bad. If I play it again I would get a cart.

Good shot = punishment

Course was in fair to below average shape for all the hype in the reviews, lots of bunkers with rocks and no sand, one fairway has bark in one half of it and almost half the holes were blind shots with a GPS in the cart that couldn’t find the hole. I drove over an hour and a half to play “one of the top courses in the state”. I wouldn’t play again if I lived next door. I will say, the greens were nice and rolled pretty good though. There’s my positive.

Great Round!

The only ding is that the food cart and snack shack weren't open due to the Covid-19 pandemic so that really isn't the courses fault. Everything else was very nice!

Worth the trip

I booked the round before arrived to Seattle and was surprised when it was 94 miles from my hotel, but the drive to the course was remarkable and once I arrived the course was beyond worth it. The course asks you to play golf and be aware on every shot. It was such a fun round I had to go out for a replay. None the less if you are in the area make the trip and play.
