Featured Golf Course Review:
Island Greens -- Island Gem
Review by: Josh K Perhaps saying that this is the best 9 hole public courses on Whidbey Island isn't saying much, but those who pass on this course while on the island are missing out. The $7 is well worth it for the 1300 yard par 27. The course is dotted with interesting teeboxes (one is off a truck, another off a tractor), waterhazards (several ponds) and beautiful landscaping. The owners are extremely friendly (once driving out to bring me an umbrella in the middle of a cloudburst) and the course is great for beginners with very flexible rules (they allow clubsharing even); it's a laid back attitude that is contagious once you get on the island. If you're a golfer that demands a course with a fancy pro shop, electric carts or gimmicky holes, this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a place to practice your short/mid-range game and enjoy yourself with friends/family, bring your $7 for the milkcan because they don't take Visa.

Fairwood Country Club -- Dont let the yardage fool ya
Review by: Max This is a terrific test of golf shots and specifically your short game. The greens are FAST and in fatastic shape. Don't let the yardage on the card fool you, although respectable in length..it is all up hill to most approach shots and adds at least one or two clubs to your swing. The couse is protected nicely with old growth trees and requires accuracy off the tee but the greatest test is when you break out the flat stick .You can not decribe the greens as anything but terrific and FAST. Worth the trip and a great value.
