Opened in 1925, Discovery Bay Golf Club, formerly known as Chevy Chase Port Townsend Golf Course, has the distinction of being the oldest public golf course in Washington. Besides its long history, it has also garnered acclaim as one of the best golf courses on the Olympic Peninsula. Situated on the shores of Discovery Bay, the layout enjoys panoramic mountain views spanning the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges. There is more to the course than scenery though. The classic design is challenging enough to appeal to low handicappers while still being accessible for beginners. The course's back nine is more challenging than the front, featuring challenging elevation changes and some tricky lies. Be sure to bring your camera for the breathtaking view on Discovery Bay Golf Club's 10th tee.

Poor conditions vs price

Course is very wet. Looks like they couldn’t mow. Should not be charging full price for the condition of the course. Lost several balls in fairway and rough do to tall grass and mud. Summer time is around the corner and conditions will improve and then charge the normal price.

Great Deal with a smile

We had a great day at the course. The lady at the clubhouse is always friendly and happy to help you out. The only complaint was the greens were punched not to long ago & I know it has to be done. Overall it was a beautiful day for golfing.Golfnow made it better!
