Snohomish Golf Course, about 30 minutes northeast of Seattle, is one of the most impressive layouts for the dollar I’ve ever seen. Their market has always been at the value end of the spectrum, but that doesn’t mean its not a first rate design. The irrigation system is not sophisticated, so when summers are a little grayer, its in its best condition. Late spring and early summer, same. A little wet in winter, but that’s Puget Sound. And its friendly. The food is perfect golf fare. It can be busy on weekends and a little slow, but be patient. Call ahead, you’ll enjoy it. I always do.
