Two years ago, when we played the course, every fairway shot felt like the ball was teed-up because the grass was so perfect. The course was designed by award-winning architect John Fought. Trophy Lake offers a daring, risk/reward golf experience with sloping fairways, expansive greens and more than 80 deep-faced, white-sand bunkers strategically placed throughout the course’s 7,206 yards. The drama is heightened by the serene setting and awe-inspiring views of the Olympic Range and Mount Rainier.
