Best Public Golf Courses in Washington

Washington State is one of the most ecologically diverse states with the Olympic and Cascade Mountain Ranges and the active volcanos of Mount St. Helens and Mt Rainier to the rain forests along the Pacific, the Puget Sound Lowlands, and the Columbia Plateau high deserts and the Palouse.

Typically, the best public golf courses are somewhat concentrated around the Seattle/Tacoma area featuring layouts such as Chambers Bay, Gold Mountain, and Salish Cliffs. The outlying territories possess some of the more unique settings for golf including Wine Valley in Walla Walla, Palouse Ridge in Pullman, Prospector at Suncadia, and Gamble Sands Golf Club in Brewster, all of which and more can be found in this guide and map to the best public golf courses in the state of Washington.
