Course Reviews


The sole purpose of these reviews is for prospective buyers to decide where they want to spend their hard earned buck to play some golf. The star system rating is by no means perfect. However,
many golfers rely on it to get a basic idea of a courses overall
condition, friendliness, course layout etc. A realistic rating is difficult to achieve when multiple high ratings are done on the same day by one person.

Played this course many times and I give the course 4/5 stars. The big negative with this course is the staff and lack of amenities. They just hosted the 2013 2A girls state championship and did a poor job. The course was in average shape, the staff was rude to the girls, the course would not even donate range balls to the kids and charged them full price. Every other host course donates range balls. They also gouged the kids and parents on food charges as well.

This course has delusions of grandeur and thinks they have hit the big time when they are a decent course with excessive prices and a poor staff.

I've been playing golf in the South sound for the last dozen years or so, and man, I wish someone would have told me about The Classic! It is truly the hidden gem of the area! Paid somewhere in the $30 range for a weekend rate. Course was in fantastic shape compared to every other course in the area in Mid October. Greens were running at least 9 and smooth as can be. No standing water to be seen. The staff was courteous, food and beverage simple and reasonably priced. The course doesn't have all the extra plush club house ammenities and what not, but who needs that? I had a fantastic round of golf, on a challenging course, at a reasonable price, and at a great pace. I know why Ryan Moore plays here when he's home. Great establishment! I know where i'll be spending my hard earned money from here on out, can't beat it!

owned by the Ryan Moore family of the PGA tour, this track is a good challenge with tree lined fairways and just enough variety to keep you interested. The green suffered through some fungus issues last spring and rolled slow all summer. No real restaurant, more of a snack bar and the pro shop is simple. Nice practice area with both covered and uncovered spots. The price is fair and if you look around can find some good deals. overall, one of the hidden gems of the area.

This course is always in excellent shape. Plays fair and tough. I have always been treated with nothing but respect at this course, and have seen the management go above and beyond to satisfy all my golf desires. Yes they are very adamant in the cart rules in order to maintain the structure of the course. It is a beautiful track and there overall concern is to keep it that way.

Great test of golf. Greens are well bunkered,raised and deep. Early in 2009 fairways were spotty due to excess rain but now are fine. I last played September 8th and found the course in great shape. It is a real test of your abilities and can be intimidating to the less patient or accomplished.I have played the Classic many times over the years and have never found the management anything but top notch.

Played the course Aug. 22nd 2009. I decided to come back and play the course after 7 years. I do enjoy the design of the course which includes undulating fairways, some elevated greens and many bunkers to negotiate. I was not impressed whatsoever with the condition of the course. Too many areas were neglected
and not watered.
On about the 4th hole a man playing in a two-some behind us approached us on the tee-box. I presume this man is the course Nazi described in the previous post. Unfortunately, I never got his name or title because he failed to identify at anytime who in the hell he was. His overall appearance was consistent with that of the course itself. Now, I'll take blame where blame is due and I admit being negligent and parking the cart slightly off the cart path. Other than that, my partner and I were observing all other rules and excited to be out playing in great weather. This, I recall, is the same man who was putting on the practice green muttering about his ties with Ryan Moore.
I chuckled to myself and realized this was a classic case of a nobody who has a hard time making an impression with his own game so he fantasizes a bit about hob-nobbing with the pros.
As I had just teed off on the 4th he proceeded to grill us in a rather angry tirade about the cart rule. A helpful and polite reminder for a first verbal warning is all that's needed for most decent people. I've played over 20 courses in the last year
in the Puget Sound area and have never had an encounter such as that. Furthermore, Our cart broke down as well on the 15th fairway and management promptly responded with a working one, but apparently no apology was necessary. We played out our round of golf and despite all the B.S. we were happy to have played another glorious round. I have a handicap of 9 and I would recommend Druids Glen in Covington for a good challenge.

On the second hole my power cart died in the fairway. I used my cell phone to call the pro shop and they sent the GM and a grounds keeper right out with a new cart. I was able to get the cart going a little and I pulled it off the cart path up by the green so the GM and grounds keeper could get by. The Grounds Keeper pulled up on the grass next to me to tow the cart and the GM parked on the cart path next to my dead cart.

Would you believe the first thing out of the GM’s mouth was,” you see these rules (posted in the cart), they are not suggestions, they are the rules, and you only get one warning to not park the cart on the grass within 75 yards of the green, and this is your one warning, next time you will loose the cart and not get a refund.” Remember this cart does not run and I was lucky to get it off the fairway and the grounds keeper is parked on the grass right next to me. Then under his breath mumbles sorry for your cart breaking down.

Now, I am NOT a new golfer and I respect the rules of golf and the rules of golf courses, and I should not have been on the grass. But my cart died and my instinct was to pull to the side. But for that guy to scold me because he was embarrassed that his cart was broken was uncalled for.

This course is overpriced, the grass clippings were not collected from the morning mowing and they had just sanded without informing us.

I will not be back and I HIGHLY recommend playing else ware. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COURSE!!
