Course Reviews


My friends prefer Kayak over Battle Creek, which is just down the road, but I am not so crazy about Kayak. I like the hills and the forced carries and big trees, but the course seems a bit too "tricked up" to me. They have recently removed a lot of trees to improve air and light to the greens and fairways. Course conditioning is perfectly fine. Holes 2 and 3 are the best holes on the course. Holes 1 and 9 have very sloping fairways that penalize a perfect shot right down the middle. Hole 5 is boring. Hole 6 requires a 4-iron tee shot and a 3-wood approach with a draw; it's just a stupid hole. Hole 13 has a reverse slope green that will not hold any approach shot. Hole 14 is a split fairway; some people think its cool but I don't.

Played the course on Saturday 18 August in typical northwest weather, after 3 scorching days earlier during the week. Condition was very good. I got a super twilight deal as a walker and staff friendly and helpful. A course you need to think your way around but rewards good play with true greens and good fairway lies. Lucky to play with Dave and Kathy who know the course and guided me, and gave me a lift to 16th tee as the walking was getting hard. Burnt a lot of happy calories! Great experience and finished in just over 4 hours.

Played here for the first time on a beautiful summer afternoon. Greens were in fantastic shape and played quite fast but true. Fairways were a little brown in areas, but have not received rainfall in quite some time, and it wasnt that big a deal. Played 18 with a foursome in a little over 4:30 hours, so pace was reasonable. Quite difficult course, and a good value at 32 dollars for a summer weekend afternoon (walking).

Nice course with some some very challenging holes. But the fairways were burnt and the greens very bumpy. For the Weekend price I would expect more. Their M-Th all you can play for 39.00 bucks is a good deal. Play during the weekday and save your money for another course on the weekends.

played today, 4/9, and play was extremely slow. tee times were pushed back almost one hour and we finished our round in over five hours. cost was summer rates, 58, which included cart. they charged us for summer rates and the course was far from that kind of condition. everything about the course was average including the service. not worth the drive from seattle for that price, course condition and pace of play. used to be a great course. will not be going back this summer.

Very poor condition today, August 4th. Bare dirt spots throughout fairways, 6 1/2 hour round, lips on holes curled in, ridiculus greens that obviously havent been aerated in a while (very unforgiving). 2nd time I've experienced these conditions in the last three months, I will never play this course again!

One of the best in the Puget Sound area! Course in fine shape now and quickly getting back to what it was a few years back. Great facilities and, for the price, well worth the drive up from Seattle (45 min). I like the value so much I joined the mens club. Great golf any day!

PLayed this course 2 weeks ago and I was very impressed with the condition of the course.Based on the comments earlier I would say that they are making a concerted effort to bring the course back up to the level it was when it was a Palmer course. Great course for strategic golf.

Great course very reasonable rates a bit off the beaten path about 10-15 min from freeway but for the money no better course in Evrett area

I played on a fairly rainy weekend and was impressed with how well the course held up. It's a very hilly course, so be prepared for a hike if you're walking. I found the course to be mildly challenging and the greens difficult. The hole placement on the Sunday I played was brutal. But, I had a good day and felt good about my play on what I would call a difficult course.

I'm a bit dissappointed in this course. I'd heard nothing but great things about the layout and conditioning until I saw this page. The course was in decent shape for what the PGA pro said was a 500 round weekend. However I was very dissappointed in the clubhouse staff and the pace of play. There was a members tournement that held up play of my round to just under 6 hours (including a 45 minute 10th hole) and the staff was very rude when I asked for a rain check on the back 9. Course is difficult and very senic and all in all one of the better bang for you buck courses on northend. I'm returning again tomorrow for the $26 twilight fees (includes cart).

Don't Do It

Played this course years ago and told all my friends it was a must to see. We put together a small team of buddies and headed out. The course was complete garbage! Nothing like it was years ago. The new management has driven this lace into the ground. It took us almost 6 hours to play and the landscape was unkept,dry,lacked maintenance and the greens looked like a mine field. I will never play here again. If it wasn't for the beer cart the day would have been a complete waste.

It's hit or miss

This is a classic NW course that was rated as one of the top 100 public courses in the country some 20+ years ago. About 5 years ago, under Palmer management, they had a young Sup. named Josh Heersink that had the course in great shape..........since then I've seen it in bad shape or decent-at-best shape, depending on when I've been there. It really is a shame because this course could be great..........good driving range, nice restaurant, practice area. It's a tree-lined course where the holes don't interfere with each other.......no houses on it. You leave the 1st or 10th & are in the woods til you come up 9 or 18.
It's a bit off the beaten path but not too remote.........about 20 mins. from I-5.

A tremendous course big on Value!

Course is in fantastic shape for this time of year. Without stating the obvious, with all the snow and rain this course must have taken, I was very suprised as to course conditions. I don't think there is a better value for seniors. I enjoyed the course very much.

Great Value, View and Facilities

Kayak Point is another beautiful, well maintained course that's especially attractive in the off-season. I paid $22 for 18 with a cart which has a ball and club washer attached which I used on nearly every hole. The course is challenging without being difficult. Greens are spacious and it's good to know where the pins are placed as a front location could be as much as 40 yards different that a back location. Very well marked for yardage so you'll have a good idea what club to use - just remember to take more club in the winter when it's cold.

All in all you'll love playing Kayak Point - which I'm going to bet is pretty crowded in the Summer. Oh! Get a cart - this is a rolling terrain course and I was glad I wasn't walking.

A sad time for Kayak fans

Played the course last week and was very dissapointed about how the course looked and played. Driving in i noticed the Driving Range turf was completely dead, and the putting course looked aweful. All that and i hadn't even stepped out of my car yet. The Fairways were mostly dead, the greens were very spongy and scalped in many places, many tees were also dead brown. Is Access Managment trying to run the place into the ground? Kayak had the best greens around this time last year, i don't think the replacment grounds crew that took over when Access took over has a clue about turf managment. From what i heard they fired one of the top Superintendents in the country when they took over just so they could save a buck. A sad state the golf course has become!! Its aweful, don't play there!!
