Eaglemont closing down

Updated: May 13, 2020

In recent years, the Pacific Northwest has seen its share of courses getting shut down. This time it’s Eaglemont in Mount Vernon, Wash.

The owners of the course, based in Thailand, said the course will close permanently this month due to financial considerations and the inability to find any new investors for the course.

A news release from the founder and CEO said the course has closed permanently as of April 4, 2020. This closure includes the 18-hole golf course and the Fireweed Terrace Restaurant and Lounge.

Eaglemont opened for play in 1993 with the original nine and then added a back nine in 1994. The course has perhaps some of the most dramatic elevation changes of any golf courses in the Pacific Northwest and uses plenty of property, sitting on 680 acres of land.
