Walter Hall getting a new look

Updated: April 2, 2013

If you have not played Walter E. Hall Golf Course in Everett in the last few years you might not recognize the place if you show up to play.

Improvements and upgrades have moved Walter Hall into the modern era of golf. A golf course that had, virtually, no bunkers now has 12 of them with two more to be built during 2013 golf season. This will give the course a completely new look by the end of the year.

These additions along with better agronomic practices have improved the overall condition and playability of the course so much that it has been added to the rotation of the 83rd Annual Snohomish County Amateur this year, the premier amateur event in Snohomish county, hosting alongside Everett and Mill Creek Country Clubs.

An emphasis on drying up the golf course has allowed carts to travel onto the fairways much earlier than normal. The greens have gotten the royal treatment, the frequency of verti-cutting, top dressings, water control, and rolling have all been optimized.

These practices have yielded some of the best greens in the North Puget Sound. The addition of bunkers on the already tough 14th hole has turned this tough short hole into Walter’s signature hole.

Along with the improved conditions the facility at Walter Hall has seen other upgrades.

The banquet room has seen significant upgrades, the Café has been remodeled and the kitchen is being improved to accommodate the new large tent and banquet room use that is sure to be coming to one of the best event settings in the Northwest. The course is managed by Premier Golf, which also manages Legion Memorial in Everett in addition to the City of Seattle courses, Interbay Golf Center, Bellevue Municipal and Lake Wilderness GC.
