When traveling, we are always on the lookout for an awesome golf course!  On many of our trips, we reserve a day to play a round of golf on a local course.

Sharing a list of some golf courses we’ve played at in the U.S.A. from California to Washington.  Looking forward to playing at the more golf courses in our future travels and adding them to our list.

What courses would you add to this list?  Please share your favorites!

Golf Courses in the U.S.A.

TEXAS

According to Avery Ranch Golf Club, their course “features the best golf in Central Texas and a real Hill Country golf experience. Former Jack Nicklaus Architect,  Andy Raugust, has blended panoramic vistas and gentle rolling hills with oak-lined fairways and a 60-acre lake.  The 18-hole championship course offers 5 tee placements that will challenge the low-handicapper while creating an enjoyable golfing experience for all levels of players.  The course begins with a very challenging front 9, including the picturesque #7 signature hole.  The back 9 is a unique blend of three par 3’s, three par 4’s and three par 5’s, allowing players to use a more risk/reward strategy.  The round closes with “the best finishing hole in Austin”.  The 18th hole is a beautiful 477-yard, par 4 bordering Avery Lake and providing a fantastic view of the Texas Hill Country.  It truly is the perfect end to your round.”

WASHINGTON

Hood Canal – A short drive from the resort is the Alderbrook Golf & Yacht Club.  The golf course is well maintained with evergreen lined fairways and greens that run true.  This is a classic northwest design with five sets of tees that at their longest, stretch the course to 6,280 yards.  A very enjoyable test of your golfing skills!

Wenatchee:  We spent a morning playing golf at the Highlander Golf Course.  A premier par 70 golf course with challenging water features and canyon carry tee shots.  The stonework bridge and shady trees add to the beauty of this course. We enjoyed breathtaking views from 800 ft above the Columbia River.  Afterwards, it’s nice to relax and have lunch in style at Highlander’s Bar and Grill.
