King County has some of the finest public golf courses and championship-caliber private courses in Western Washington. There are several courses that have earned accolades from major golf magazines and travel publications and that have hosted many pro and amateur tournaments. Many offer private lessons and golfers can play year-round, as well. Just remember that if you’re teeing off in the winter months, be prepared to get a little wet even if you can steer clear of water hazards. The courses offer a wide variety of play and stunning views of the beautiful Northwest scenery.
