Laid out on high ground above the Cle Elum River, the spectacular 18-hole Tumble Creek mountain golf course is an understated Tom Doak layout that’s situated next to Suncadia Resort’s 36-hole golf complex.

Members and guests of the private Tumble Creek community enjoy privileged access to the four star resort and its two public 18-hole courses: “Prospector,” Arnold Palmer’s 2004 offering and the Jim Hardy/Peter Jacobson-designed “Rope Rider,” which opened in 2012.

In true minimalistic Tom Doak-style, very little earth was moved during construction of the course, except at the 450-yard 5th, which doglegs left down into a valley. On the back nine, back-to-back par fives precede the 405-yard 16th, a par four that veers past water on the left of the fairway to a green that’s heavily protected by sand on its right side.

Tumble Creek is a very nice course in the Suncadia community. It doesn't get much publicity because of its private nature. The course is typical Doak - very good. I especially enjoyed the par 5th 4th and how it's laid upon the land. The 11th is one of the prettiest and most testing par 3s around. Some have opined that the final stretch across the flat ground is mediocre. It's not quite up to the rest of the course, but it's still good golf. I do like the 17th and 18th holes to finish. If you are able to get a game at this course, take advantage, it's great. This is by far the best of the three courses at Suncadia. Tumble is easily a top 5 course in WA state.
