Owned and operated by the City of Bremerton in Kitsap County, the Ken Tyson-designed Cascade course was the first of two 18-hole layouts to operate at Gold Mountain Golf Club when it opened its doors to golfers in 1971.
Gold Mountain’s Cascade Course like the Olympic Course is majestically tree lined beauty situated in the Pacific Northwest. A string of exceptional holes, the Cascade Course offers an ‘easier’ golfing experience. Wider fairways give generous landing zones to golfers, with smaller changes in elevation than the Olympic course. However, with that taken into mind it is still a fun course that will challenge golfers of all ability levels, large coniferous trees, guard many of the fairways. The aroma of pine and the general lushness of vegetation overwhelm the senses.
Steller par 4’s that vary in both length and difficulty coupled with a variety of par 3’s and 5’s foster a good golfing experience. In my opinion there is nothing better than starting out the day with a short par 5, the cascade course delivers, 452 yards off the back tee. But golfers beware, Gold Mountain’s cascade course isn’t a walk at the park. Golfers of all skillsets with face challenging shot decisions during the round.
If you do make it out to Gold Mountain don’t miss out and play both the Olympic and Cascade course.
