The golf course measures 6,575 yards, but plays 5-10% longer than the actual yardage. A traditional layout, the course has many holes that are tucked away in the forest and make you feel like you are on your own private, personal golf course

The course is lined with tall Evergreen trees but has generously wide fairways. We played from the green tees at about 6350 yds, it felt like it played shorter. It has some personality with fairways that move both right and left, and minimal elevation changes. The greens were in very good condition and have subtle undulations that will make you smile or curse, depending on the outcome. Pretty basic when it comes to Pro shop, and deli services, but the beer was cold, and I don't play a course for the clubhouse. Overall condition was above average for a Muni track. An enjoyable lap. I'll be back.

The day I played, the greens had recently been punched and sanded so not the best shape. The rough had not been cut so it was long and sometimes tough to find your ball. I think the grounds crew was just trying to catch up to the good weather after a typical North West winter. I expect this course will be at it's finest again soon. Definitely my favourite course to play in Bellingham.
