Great local country club to play or join

I recently played this golf course with a friend who is a new member and really enjoyed it. My score wasn’t great, but that came from the challenge of the course and being a first timer on it. The greens are unbelievably fast and the course is in immaculate shape. I was told that the 11th hole is the hardest 11th in Washington state – the 30 foot putt I sank means I parred one of the hardest holes around. The best thing I liked about this tough narrow course is that even when my shots were off-line and in the rough or worse off in the trees, I could still play even if it was just a short shot back to the fairway. I hate OB stakes and penalties and would rather be forced to hit the ball tee to green even if I am still penalized by hazards due to my lack of accuracy. The only drawback of this course I found was the frequent low airplane traffic from planes headed to Seatac airport just south of the course which is located in southernmost Seattle (actually Boulevard Park). If you get a chance to play this course, be sure to accept the invitation. It’s one of the nicer courses in and around Seattle.
