Great Muny

An old style golf course cut through some tall spruce and pine trees. Reasonably priced and usually plays in under four hours.

This gem of a course is well known to locals and located at the entrance of Lake Padden Park just south of Bellingham. Well treed and with surprisingly very little water, this 18 hole full length course will challenge all skill levels. The greens were in great shape (late August), and althoug not visible from the course, The putts break... More

This is a great track for so many reasons, but ultimately it comes down to the quality of the greens- smooth and consistent. I was draining putts from all over the place. My only con would be the 1 par 4 on the back 9 with the 90 degree dog leg right. I cringe at these type holes as it... More

We played here at the end of July and twilight started at 2pm which meant golf for $30 on a course that is a good challenge. Unlike the previous reviewer, we did not find that the greens were slow at all and given the lack of rain in the last few months we thought that the overall shape of the... More

Take advantage of the driving range - it's grass and you hit balls to the north, which means that the sun shines on the ball and not in your eyes. The course has a good variety of holes, with tracts of forest separating most holes. Fairways and greens are well-maintained and the pro shop staff are welcoming. There are no... More

I play here each week and am continuously impressed with this venue. It is well maintained, has a great professional staff and is a challenge to all golf abilities. Most of all it is the best golf value in Washington. And I don't want to leave out that they have very good food. Their breakfast, as well as lunch wraps,... More

Lake Padden Golf Course is about 35 years old I would say and provides exceptional value & conditioning considering it is city owned. Green fees for seniors are about $24. The course can easily be walked if you are in decent shape. The course set-up is such that on a normal day when it is not too busy (and this... More

Despite the rain we worked our way through the puddles and savvy lay out. Definitely a must do course if in the area. Golf management is the call for this course. Be subtle and you'll have a great round. Tough to believe this is a public course. We also had a great experience in the cafe after our game. Best... More
