The course.

If it rains on any day prior to your round, or they've watered the fairways, better bring some boots. The front nine was nothing but mud.

Very bumpy greens

Fun course, still soggy in the fairway. They’d just punched the greens, so putting sucked. Will come back when things dry out more.

Spring time golf

Very very wet, but in all fairness we’ve had a lot of rain.
Green still played fast. Even as wet as the fairways are still had a fun day.

Finally broke 100 at Tumwater

Great day out with the boys. 4th or 5th time playing here....always fun...muddy in places and the second tee box was a mud pit. Great day regardless.

Great Value for the Money

Course was dry and in great shape. The greens are well taken care of and the fairways and most of the teeing surfaces were in good playing shape. The pace of play in the afternoon, at least, was good and the practice areas are well kept, too. Fun course to play this time of year.

Absolutely the Best

Why have I waited so long and wasted so much playing some of the other courses in the Southsound? Course conditions were absolutely awesome. Greens true and consistent throughout. Nice to get away from the city sounds and houses and enjoy the day. Sanitizing stations throughout the course, staff get friendly and helpful to newbys at the course. Top-notch practice areas where range balls starting at $4.00 for a small bucket of about 30 balls. Saw two deer and a few Hawks and eagles. Sorry Capitol City and Lakeland Village, I've got a new favorite course.
