Alderbrook Resort

Updated: March 3, 2010

Alderbrook is actually two different entities: The golf course, called Alderbrook Golf Club, is owned and managed by resident members. The Alderbook Inn is a resort complex located near the water’s edge of Hood Canal and provides its guests with access to the golf club.

Alderbrook Golf Club located along the Hood Canal in Union, Wash. has plenty new to show off. There is a new clubhouse and a completely landscaped staging area and parking lot. Also new is the renovated 18th green: the pond is bigger and now comes into play. A waterspout and rock retaining walls make for a dramatic landscape on this already visually stimulating hole.

If you haven’t been to Alderbrook Inn in a while, you just might want to check it out. The resort has a lot to show off and if you are looking for that weekend trip, Alderbrook is definitely worth the drive, be sure to take advantage of the great stay and play packages at the resort.

The golf course has been a popular place for locals and tourists, with its picturesque setting amongst the forest above the Hood Canal. One thing that hasn’t changed is the course’s tricky eighth hole, a par-5 which is shaped like the letter S. You can try and cut the corner twice, or lay up twice. It’s a challenging hole that always is the talk of the round.

The 18th hole, a dramatic par-5 that doglegs to the right, has some new changes, including expanded ponds near the green complete with a waterfall feature. The clubhouse is new, having opened earlier this year complete with a pro shop, restaurant, bar and more.

“People will like what they see – especially if they haven’t been here in a while,” said Golf Course General Manager Rick Verbarendse.

The resort and spa have also undergone changes. After two years of renovation, the inn and spa are fully open and provide what every traveler needs – great rooms, great views and an even better setting.

The resort now features 77 guest rooms and another 16 waterfront cottages for people to stay in. The resort also has a dock for boaters to drive up, tie up and then stay for a few days at the resort.

Alderbrook Properties currently has model homes available for review to give you a sense of what life is all about when you live where you play.

And for those looking for some fun in the outdoors, with Alderbrook being located on the Olympic Peninsula, there is plenty to see and do. The hiking and camping in Olympic National Park is extraordinary. There are three nearby waterfront Washington state parks where you can launch boats or walk the beaches. You’ll find antique shops and art galleries, produce markets and ecological tours. See and from there you can link up with the Inn and Property sites. Alderbrook “So Close, Yet Worlds Away”
