Established in 1900, the Seattle Golf Club offers members and their guests a welcome respite from outside distractions with a golf course Arnold Palmer described as, "one of the most outstanding golf courses in the Northwest, if not the nation", a historic clubhouse that overlooks Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, and extensive golf practice facilities that accommodates short game practice in addition to drives.
The Golf Course
Redesigned in 1996 by Arnold Palmer, the challenging, beautiful, and quiet golf course is surrounded by hundred-year-old Douglas firs and immaculately maintained by expert greens keepers. The golf course invites the technical and thoughtful golfer to not only admire the course's spectacular beauty, but to also test his or her skills against the narrow fairways and speedy greens. In addition to a driving range, chipping green, and putting green, the golf course offers five sets of tee boxes that range in slope from 137 to 116.
Seattle Golf Club Scorecard
Built in 1908 by Cutter & Malmgren (the architects of the Rainier Club and the Stimson Green Mansion on First Hill), the clubhouse retains its original objective of creating a vacation style lodge by providing spacious banquet facilities and decks with magnificent views. Our member areas feature locker rooms, common areas for entertaining and meetings, and formal dining. Dress codes are strictly enforced at all times (denim is prohibited; call for more information).
Activities & Events
The Seattle Golf Club has always strived to maintain and perpetuate amateur golf in the Pacific Northwest; an objective that is preserved today. The Seattle Golf Club has hosted the 1952 United States Amateur, the 1961 Walker Cup, the 1981 United States Senior Championship, the 2010 Pac-10 Conference Championship, and is scheduled to host the 2016 Pacific Coast Amateur Championship.

The Seattle Golf Club also participates in a number of team matches including the oldest continuously played international team match (inaugurated in 1903) with the Victoria Golf Club. Our member golfing events are designed for all ability levels, and we have an active women's division in addition to a junior golf program that offers clinics and competitions.
