White Horse Golf Course in Kingston was built with winter golf in mind

Updated: December 3, 2010

When White Horse Golf Club in Kingston was developed, there might not have better a piece of land. Not only is the course a terrific challenge during the spring, summer and fall months, but during the winter, the course holds its own.

Built on a former tree farm, White Horse Golf Club has the kind of land that makes winter golf a treat. “We’ve prided ourselves on being a place where people can play year-round and enjoy themselves,” said Director of Golf Bruce Christy. “When the course was built, we knew it would be a great place for winter golf. And it’s turning out that way.”

When the course opened in 2007, it was named as one of the Best New Courses in America. Nestled on high ground between the Olympic and Cascade mountains, White Horse Golf Club offers sweeping views of Puget Sound and the mountains.

Each hole is playable for every skill level. Wide fairways and landing areas allow you to swing away. Subtle greens and one hundred and thirty seven bunkers keep the course interesting — every single time you play. Five sets of tees allow the course to play from 5,022 to 7,093 yards. You’ll find your own sweet spot between challenging and fun. Your round takes you through 456 acres of old-growth cedar, spruce, fir and hemlock. Golf paths wind along side preserved wetlands.
