“Not the Best Course”

Orcas Island Golf Course
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: At the heart of Orcas Island located in the San Juan Islands off the coast of the State of Washington. One of the most breathtaking and enjoyable, yet one of the best kept secrets of the Pacific Northwest. This quaint, challenging regulation and WSGA rated course, now 50 years old, has all the nuances required by both amateur and professional golfers. It offers excellent Astoria Bent greens, well designed tees and fairways plus dangerously positioned water hazards, all surrounded by beautiful evergreens, abundant wildlife and the magic of Orcas Island.

We were very disappointed in the condition of the grounds and greens for the price. Location was convenient and staff were nice.

We were driving around the island and we had some time to kill so we thought we would stop and hit a bucket of balls each. This was a lot of fun! We rented one club for $3 and I don't remember how much the bucket was, but it was cheap and we laughed at each other because none of us can play golf. At one point, my son was hitting or trying to hit the ball and the head of the club flew off about 20 yards. It was very funny! This served our purpose-killing time- and we would do it again!

People who play manicured courses with all the niceties over 36 different holes ought to bypass this family owned and run course. But if you want a perfectly fine small course with some serious challenges (most of the course goes uphill and is often very wet) in a beautiful setting, have at it! Very nice fees and everything the casual to the couple times a month player is here for them. Late in the day great fees for play until dark. Perfectly acceptable greens and traps, small driving range, centrally located close to Eastsound.

Spending a week on Orcas Island and we decided to play 9 holes.
Oh well....welcome to the island that really does not include good golf.
The course was a borderline 9 hole course although the greens were in good shape.
Cost including rental for walking was $40 walking.

I was on vacation up on Orcas Island for my second time and went and played there. This was my second time playing there, but the first time I played there was about ten years ago, and it was an ok place to play but not the best. This second time though was a whole different experience. It was nice and green and everything just seemed so much better taken care of. After playing and talking to the people in the club house I found out why it was such a better experience because there was a new owner and had really improved it. Not to mention that the two people working there were so friendly and made the day a lot better. I would highly recommend playing there if you have a chance. What a nice, fun coarse.
