Wayne Demeester Discusses Golf Courses in Seattle

With more than 50 golf courses within the city and its surrounding areas, Seattle offers golfers numerous opportunities for enjoyment. While many of the facilities are private, the city oversees four municipal golf courses that cater to individuals regardless of skill level. Comprised of more than 6,200 yards, the nearly 100-year-old Jefferson Park Golf Course features a 9-hole Executive golf course. Operational since 1935, West Seattle Golf Course recently won Golf Digest’s Award for One of America’s 50 Best 19th Holes. Those who choose Jackson Park Golf Course can decide between the 9-hole Executive course and the 18-hole Championship course. Finally, Interbay Golf Center offers an award-winning heated driving range.

Moreover, the city has shown a commitment towards its golfing community by enacting Golf Financial Policies in 2006. This resolution uses golf revenues to support golf capital improvements such as perimeter trails, tee-to-green cart paths, and driving range expansions. This will help Seattle-area courses like Sahalee Country Club stay high on the list of Washington’s top golf courses alongside Chambers Bay, Tumble Creek Club, The Members Club, and Royal Oaks Country Club.
