Port Ludlow Resort: Still a top NW destination

Updated: November 1, 2011

Golf is a year-round proposition at the Resort at Port Ludlow. And why not? With its location on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula and frequent dry, sunny winter days, the Resort at Port Ludlow is a golfer’s playground anytime of the year.

And besides that, there’s much more than golf at the resort. It’s place for golfers and non-golfers alike to enjoy. Any time of the year.

Golfers have flocked to the Resort at Port Ludlow for years. The 18-hole championship course with its Tide and Timber nines has been an award winner since opening in 1974.

The course is only one of 10 in the state of Washington, and 445 in the world, to be recognized as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” for the past 10 years. Meaning this is a place that is in touch with nature. During any point in the round, you might see eagles, deer and other wildlife.

In fact, Esquire Magazine once called the Resort at Port Ludlow one of the “most scenic in the world.” The resort also has been named as the top golf resort in Washington for 2011.

The Inn at Port Ludlow is a place that is an ideal getaway. Located on the water’s edge, the 37-room inn has amenities like fireplaces, private balconies, wireless internet, oversized jacuzzi tubs and spectacular views–a perfect place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway. You can spoil yourself with spa treatments from aromatherapy facials to full body massages right in the comfort and privacy of your own room.

The Inn at Port Ludlow also features 3,000 square feet of meeting space for those looking to take their companies out of town for a weekend retreat.

The 300-slip marina has a seaplane dock and visitors can rent a boat or kayak to explore the protected cove of Ludlow Bay.

The award winning Fireside Restaurant recently received an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator Magazine.
