Everett’s Legion Memorial course re-models four holes

Updated: October 2, 2019

Legion Memorial Golf Course in Everett, Wash. has re-opened for play after completing a re-modeling project. The renovations to Legion Memorial were needed after poor storm drainage in the surrounding community have been completed and the course is back up and running at full speed.

For starters, the nines have been reversed at the golf course and there are now water hazards on seven of the 18 holes instead of just five before the re-model project was completed. Par has been reduced from 72 to 71 but the course still has its length and will play to 6,603 from the tips. Four of the holes at Legion Memorial are new holes. Each of the nines now ends with golfers playing a par-5 hole. There are five sets of tees ranging from 4,439-6,603 yards. The four new holes (12-15) are a long par-3 followed by a par-4, par-3 and a par-4 where water comes into play on the approach shot to the green. Water is now in play on five of the last six holes.

Legion Memorial opened for play in 1937 with nines holes and expanded to 18 holes in 1942. The course sits atop a hill alongside the Snohomish River in Everett’s north end. Legion Memorial is one of two public courses in Everett operated by Premier Golf, which also operates Walter Hall Golf Course. Premier golf operates the four city of Seattle courses, including West Seattle, Jefferson Park, Jackson Park and Interbay. The group also manages Bellevue Golf Course and Bellevue Crossroads as well as Lynnwood Golf Course, Cedarcrest Golf Course and Lake Padden Golf Course.
