Island Greens


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.

Rainier Golf & Country Club -- One of the best In Seattle area
Review by: Aaron Heyer Rainier Golf has everything for the family. Nice greens, beautiful fairways, ponds, and a great crew that takes care of it. It has an older clubhouse with French stying. Ron Proctor the last Superintendent, drove the course into a new direction by rebuiding all of the fairways, adding six to twelve inches of sand, drainage, and training the best crew to care for it. He kept up on new mowers, bringing high quality, cutting edge practices into the day to day maint. of the course. Rainier golf is worth the money. All done through two generations of golf Superintendent know how. Rainier is a links style layout, and challenging for everyone.
