Lynnwood Golf Course could remain a golf course

Updated: July 2, 2013

The Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course has gone through some uncertain times as talk of closing the course and turning it into a park surfaced earlier this year. But thanks to the Lynnwood City Council, the course received some serious support. The course has been suffering through economic pains, just like other courses in the country, but the city council voted to do what it can to make the course viable. In a meeting the Lynnwood City Council voted to support the city’s park and recreation department to “ensure the financial sustainability of the Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course going forward.”

And the course is definitely worth saving and is a community asset. Lynnwood Municipal is a perfect place for both beginners and advanced players. The course plays to a par-65 and is enjoyed by all levels of golfers. The course has proven to be popular through the years, in fact over 40,000 rounds were played in 2012. The boost from the city council will make sure that Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course remains just that – a golf course.

The course opened for play in 1991 and was designed by Pacific Northwest architect John Steidel. The course sits on 75 acres next to Edmonds Community College and has proven to be popular with a variety of golfers through the years. The golf course has a park-like feel with its tree-lined fairways, ponds and lakes and well maintained putting surfaces . The course has proven to be one of the top winter tracks around with terrific drainage.
