This course is a local favorite that plays longer than the yardage indicates because of the hills and hidden greens. The course was originally intended to be the recreational centerpiece for a housing development and an oil refinery, but environmentalists squelched the industrial plans and home builders chose lots well away from the fairways. The layout rises and falls through the forest and offers novel holes that match the terrain. The signature hole is #18, a 420-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot over a gully, then an uphill approach shot to a well-bunkered green. The dining room in the clubhouse overlooks the green on hole #18, and the tee box on #10 faces Puget Sound and Camano Island. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 8th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996, and the 39th best out of "America's Top 75 Affordable Courses" from their list of "America's Best Golf Courses Everyone Can Play" for 1996. The same publication awarded it "Best in State" in 1997-98, and 38th in the category of "Top 75 Public Courses" in 1990. In 1997, this facility opened a Jim McLean Golf School and an eighteen hole putting course complete with sand bunkers, water hazards and undulating grass greens.
