Changes coming at Kayak Point after new Access Golf deal struck

Updated: August 1, 2013

The winds of change are blowing at Kayak Point Golf Club in Stanwood, north of Seattle. Snohomish County and Access Golf have reached an initial ten-year deal to operate and manage the golf course. In addition, Snohomish County, through a parks bond, will contribute $500,000 to help upgrade both the clubhouse and the golf course.

“We have enjoyed our relationship with Access Golf, so it was natural to keep it going,” said Russ Bosanko of the Snohomish County Parks and Recreation Department. “And the timing couldn’t have been better to have the bond money available. We like the way things are going at Kayak Point and wanted to keep it going in the right direction.”

The money will go to help refurbish a clubhouse that is 30 years old and needs some work. The tee boxes, greens and some fairways will also benefit from these dollars. “These changes will really help us promote the course even more,” said Bosanko.
