Nile Shrine Golf Course offers a complete golfing experience

Updated: November 3, 2020

The Nile Shrine Golf Course has been providing golfers of all ages and ability a challenging place to play quality golf without driving a long way. The entire golf course is part of the Shiners Fraternal Lodge. The Shriners are known for their philanthropic work with their Shriners Hospitals for Children® that provide life-changing care to children. Shriners have had a long love affair with golf and continues to this day, as evident with the PGA Tour’s Shriners Hospital for Children Open last month.

The Nile not a long course but it’s a fun course with a lot of character. No two holes are alike and long ball hitters will need exceptional control, as many of the fairways are narrow with trouble on either side. The popular course is just 15 minutes north of Seattle off I-5 near the Edmonds/Kingston Ferry exit in Mountlake Terrace.

The Nile has proven that it doesn’t have to be long to be a challenging test of golf. At slightly over 5,000 yards, accuracy is premium over distance. Like the number 3 hole: a dog leg left, about 210 yards to the corner, with OB left and water on the right side all the way down.

The course has some outstanding par 3s like number 13 that is 182 yards from an elevated tee where club selection is difficult and the wind can be a big factor.

“I’ve now worked at Nile Shrine Golf Course for 16 years and am excited to work for them for another 16. It’s a great organization to work for,” said Joe Korn the head golf professional.

The course is very affordable with rates for juniors, seniors and various advertised discounts.
