Second course at Gamble Sands is underway

Updated: July 30, 2022

More golf is on the way at Gamble Sands in Brewster, Wash. First it was the 18-hole David McLay- Kidd-designed Sands course which got everything going. Soon after came a putting course, shorter course and lodging.

Now plans are in the works for a second 18-hole championship course at Gamble Sands. The original Sands course ranks as one of the top courses in the Pacific Northwest and ranked among the top public golf courses in the United States.

The Gebbers family, which owns the resort along with Kidd have worked up plans for a second course. Those plans are now materializing.

The still unnamed, a new 18-hole course is part of a full resort expansion that includes nearly doubling the first-rate Inn at Gamble Sands.

Kidd has said that the project is well underway, with permits in place and the starting points of construction decided. He and his crew will break ground this fall, then it’s off to the races next year, he said, with a planned grand opening in the summer of 2025.

The new course will be built just north of the existing 18 and the resort’s par-3 course, QuickSands, another Kidd creation that opened last year.
