We had a very enjoyable round of golf at Shuksan. I say the course had a lot of "topographic challenge." :-) The course was in great shape and we were challenged with water, sand, and approaches. I would recommend this course for its golf experience, but I would caution EV drivers to come prepared with reserve in their battery because... More

Shuksan is a great golf course for the average golfer looking for a unique experience. This course offers generous fairways, excellent conditions (fairways and greens) all at a great value. It can be walked but given the elevation changes you'll probably want a power cart, but the elevation changes add to the experience of great views along the way.

It is adjacent to Western Washington University and its outdoor sculpture park, the trails all connect.

Four couples go here each year to golf and relax. We love this course, especially in the fall since it has so many colorful trees on the course. The breakfast burrito is yummy and wait until you get a hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps made by Darcie. Darcie is the Queen of the Cafe. The drink itself is reason to... More

Shuksan Golf Club is tucked away off the Guide Meridian, north of Bellingham. I play the course once a year, for a birthday outing with a couple of foursomes. This is a course you'd want to ride, as very hilly & some pretty severe elevations. Condition is usually very good. They have however changed a few things over the last... More

This is a really neat course. The thing I like the best is the speed of play. We never had to wait for the group ahead of us and we were never pushed by a group behind us. The different elevations at this course make it unique and the course layout is fun to play. You might want to rent... More

Awesome scenery and mountain views. While I am not a golfer, my husband has played it. It's hilly and beautiful, and we used to eat at the clubhouse for the view and the food on special occasions.

Played here in the last week of May. When we arrived, it was raining and the forecast called for more. The guy in the pro shop actually said he wouldn't hold us to our tee time, since the weather was bad. This is the first time I can ever recall a golf course employee being honest about the weather. Most... More

This course is a hidden delight. Some people choose to walk this monster however a cart will make the day far more enjoyable. For you and those behind you. One and ten offer incredible elevation that make for exciting starts to the front and back nine! There is nothing that compares to an elevation drive to a fairway that seems... More

Just played this for the first time and mud (plugged) balls everywhere. Greens are quite bumpy and some have fungus and winter kill. Only $27 @ 1 pm, so it's good value, and its a good work out / walk for sure, for those carrying. Played blue tees.
