Homestead Farms: The island

Updated: April 30, 2010

The Homestead Farms Golf Resort and Convention Center is located on the outskirts of Lynden on what was once dairy land. Now the land serves as a nice attraction and getaway for Northwest golfers.

The island green at the par-5 finishing hole brings many golfers back to the Lynden course. The 525-yard hole offers gutsy and talented golfers the opportunity to go for the green in two, but the shot requires a carry over water and precision to hit the island green.

Golf Digest once ranked the hole’s green as one of the nation’s top island greens. The finishing hole, surrounded by walls of flowers, water and sand, is aesthetically pleasing. If you stay dry a birdie is a possibility, but par is still a good score on this beautiful hole.

The resort includes a hotel, multiple dining options and a fitness center for vacationers to occupy their time while off the golf course.
