Best Golf Courses in Washington

One of the season’s best (and perhaps most underrated activities) involves heading out to the local golf courses and teeing off. Fortunately, Washington has lush golf courses and landscapes galore that not only provide perfect terrain for a competitive game, but also picturesque views of the Pacific Northwest as the backdrop. These are the best golf courses in Washington to visit this fall.

Walla Walla

Wine Valley Golf Club manages to combine two great things into one, with a world-class course made up of challenging terrains and spectacular views, all settled within Downtown Walla Walla, which is a city that’s home to tasting rooms and art galleries to thriving restaurants and more. The area is even ranked as one of the best wine destinations in the world. So grab a glass and get ready to tee off (maybe not at the same time though). For more information, visit
