San Juans: Three courses to try

Updated: April 30, 2010

A trio of nine-hole courses including Orcas Island Golf Club, Lopez Island Golf Club and San Juan Golf & Country Club provide quality golf to vacationers in the San Juan Islands.

Orcas Island is the oldest of the three courses, as it was designed and built in 1960. It’s a popular destination in summer and was recently purchased by a young local family, the Taylor Family. Lopez Island was built more than 40 years ago and is open to the public. San Juan sits near the popular tourist town of Friday Harbor and offers a links-style nine-hole golf course.
