Tumwater Valley: Double trouble on some par-3 holes

Updated: August 31, 2011

Tumwater Golf Course has several things that keeps golfers coming back – like the second and 17th holes, both par-3 holes.

The second and 17th are unique in that they both have two greens. One green plays much shorter than the other, giving both the low and high handicap players different choices from the tee box. Tumwater’s length is another challenge. The course stretches to nearly 7,200 yards from the tips, and when the wind blows, it plays even longer.

River’s Edge restaurant features fine dining and a deck with a nice view of the golf course. Some of the carts in the fleet even feature air conditioning.
