Inglewood Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Kenmore, Washington.
Inglewood Golf Course first opened for play in August 1921. The course was designed by Robert Johnstone of Seattle with assistance from noted British Columbia golf Architect A.V. Macan. Bill Teufel redesigned the course in 1985.
Back in 1921 the city limits of Seattle ended at 55th Street. The course was considered out in the boondocks. In 1925, fire destroyed the original bland clubhouse, which was replaced in 1926 with the present 64,000-square foot, Spanish (French Normandy) Stucco building at a cost of $133,736. For some reason - some suggest marshy land - neither the course nor the Clubhouse takes advantage of the proximity to Lake Washington, less than a 2-wood from the clubhouse. Although, the course does have a spectacular view of Lake Washington. Inglewood was built on hilly terrain and has tree-lined fairways. The signature hole is #18, a 509-yard, par 5.
The course measures 6,778 yards from the championship tees and is known for its difficult par 4s. If you want to beat the course, you'll have to do it on the par 5s. The par, 5s are birdie-able. The rest of the holes are difficult. The string of holes from 4 through 14 is considered one of the finest consecutive collections in the Northwest. Two nightmare greens - the three-tiered No. 13 and the sloping No. 14 - can ruin an otherwise good round.
The 4th hole is known as Lovers Lane. Seems that on a Memorial Day in the early 1950's, a couple was unaware that a tournament had started and they were making the day memorable on the 4th hole green. And now you know the history behind the name.
