Golf resort plans still in the works near Hood Canal

Updated: December 30, 2014

The biggest planned development in Jefferson County since Port Ludlow Master Planned Resort is still on track near Hood Canal, two miles south of Brinnon.

A 231-acre resort called Pleasant Harbor Marina and Golf Resort would include 890 residential units, an 18-hole golf course, a marina with maritime village, and a variety of resort amenities.

Statesman Corp. of Calgary, Alberta, first proposed the 300 million resort in 2006. It is in the process of seeking a county permit, which must go through the public comment process and eventually get Jefferson County Planning Commission to sign off on it or make proposed changes.

Estimates are for about 1,750 people to be both directly and indirectly employed by the resort – once complete, 225 people will be needed.

The golf course is expected to take up 220 acres with 739 housing units.
