Lake Wilderness has some major improvements planned for future

Updated: December 2, 2020

Lake Wilderness Golf Course has always been known for nice greens and since CourseCo took over the management several changes and improvement have occurred, like new sod, leveling and reshaping of the tee boxes on holes 4, 6 and 8 with more to come on the back nine this year. A new pump upgrade will prove better irrigation for the course during the dry season. 

The restaurant/bar area has a great view above the 18th hole with a full lunch menu from salads, to wraps, to a French dip and a great selection of appetizers.  With the pandemic, there have been ups and downs because of mandated closures and restrictions.  The most recent being they can only offer take out food at this time.  The good news is the golf course is “to go” and a part of the new norm.

Under normal circumstances the facility is open and does outside tournaments and offers a nice catering menu for all events from tournaments to weddings.  There are active men’s and women’s clubs that play on weekdays and weekends depending on the group.  The weekend clubs have a monthly tournament as well as games and events on the other weeks.

There is no driving range.  The goal in the next two or three years is to level the existing clubhouse and build a new one.  The design is already in the early stages with an architectural firm.

The course participates in the Youth on Course with the Washington State Golf Association and is popular course for youths.  Since the course is 5,400 yards, with a few different tee boxes, it is great for golfers of all ages and with tree-lined fairways and small greens.

Ron Cox has managed the property for CourseCo just over a year and Jeff Taylor, the superintendent, has been at the property for over 18 years.
