Trailer is now gone as a new shop opens for Home Course

Updated: July 6, 2020

The Home Course in DuPont, Wash. is taking on a new look as its new pro shop has opened. Gone is the old trailer which housed the pro shop and a couple of offices. In is the new shop.

When the course opened in 2007 it was an award winner. And since then the course designed by Mike Asmundson and owned and operated by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association and WA Golf, has consistently been near or at the top of most “best of” lists.

In fact, in 2010 the Home Course served as a co-host for qualifying for the U.S. Amateur, was the solo host of the 2014 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links and has hosted many of the PNGA and WA Golf championships through the years.

The new pro shop is a welcome sight for the course. The shop had been operating out of a trailer for years but now with the new digs, things look new and different at The Home Course.

The Home Course in DuPont is considered one of the best public golf courses in Washington. Throughout the walkable layout, golfers will enjoy scenic views of the Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, and Mount Rainier. It’s a long course at 7,424 yards from the back tees. The challenging greens play fast and are complemented by wide fairways with generous landing areas. 

There are several challenging holes where you’ll face strategically placed bunkers and subtle, but tricky elevation changes. The golf course begins with a few open, parkland holes and then it gets more challenging. The seventh hole is one of the toughest, starting from an elevated tee to a green that is neatly tucked behind a lake. 

Opened in early summer of 2007, The Home Course in DuPont, Wash. was immediately lauded by Golfweek magazine as the No. 2-ranked “Best Public Course in Washington.” It is a walkable layout with panoramic views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, and Mount Rainier present throughout the golf course.
