Constructed on a rolling 560-acre property that once belonged to the Boeing family, Tom Fazio’s course at Aldarra Golf Club was his first project in Washington State.

In fact, as the designer states, “Aldarra was our first course in the Northwest, which makes it a very important golf course. If my design firm is going to ‘fly our flag’ in a particular area, the golf can’t be just good, it has to be ‘as good as it gets’”.

The Fazio fairways at Aldarra have been routed through a heavily forested, secluded landscape with significant changes in elevation that allow amazing views of Mount Si and the surrounding Cascade mountains – it’s all very understated but spectacular, nonetheless.

The closing four holes have acquired the moniker of “The Gauntlet,” as in the gauntlet being thrown down to signify a challenge over the final four holes, which comprise a long par three and three demanding par fours. Depending on how badly beaten up you already feel on the 15th tee of such a tough course, will you be able to resist the challenge over the final stretch?

Aldarra is arguably the best course in the state. While it may lack the tournament prestige of Chambers Bay and Sahalee it is absolutely of the same caliber. Each hole is unique and will rarely play the same way twice. The greens are slick and undulating, punishing you if you don't stick your approach in the right place. The mountain views and natural landscape are breathtaking in both summer and winter, offering the year round golfer a real treat every round. The thing that makes Aldarra the most unique is how many "fun" shots you will hit each round. You'll be challenged, frustrated but always rewarded each time you play 18. It looks like Tom Doak built a golf course that Tom Fazio designed, and I can't offer a higher compliment than that.

GREAT TRACK.

Aldarra is a very nice club. Fazio catered this course to true players. The greens are pure and fast. Conditioning is also top notch. The playing corridors are wide so you don't feel claustrophobic. In my opinion this is the second best private course in the state - trailing only Tumble Creek. It's definitely worth a game.
