Golf Overview at Sahalee

Sahalee was designed by noted golf course architect Ted Robinson with later renovations by Rees Jones. It has been consistently ranked in the top 100 courses in America by Golf Digest for over 30 years.

This all weather, year round course is characteristically Northwest with majestic Douglas fir, red cedar and hemlock trees lining its narrow fairways. Sahalee's 27-holes consist of three 9-hole courses of equal caliber (the North, South and East course), any two of which can be combined to a standard 18-hole course. This arrangement eliminates the need for call-ahead starting times and promotes greater freedom of play for all members.

And, while some of golf's greatest have competed here in championship play, Sahalee caters to players of all ages and abilities. A wide variety of tee boxes on every hole accommodate different skill levels and afford everyone opportunities for success and continued challenge.

About Those Trees

"Everybody heard there were a lot of trees... I don't think anybody imagined this many."

Justin Leonard, 1997 British Open champion, commenting on Sahalee during the 1998 PGA Championship
 

The Most Fun I Ever Had

Seattle's Fred Couples has been a local favorite throughout his professional career. That adoration was well observed when he played the 2010 U.S. Senior Open at Sahalee. 

A fawning gallery followed him every step of the way hoping for a win. For 53 of 54 holes, he kept the dream alive. But early on Sunday, a triple bogey ended any chance of wrestling the trophy from Bernard Langer, the eventual winner.

According to the News Tribune's John McGrath, Couples remembers his Sahalee experience as "the most fun I've ever had in golf," which is no exaggeration.
