The following is a list of golf courses in the Pacific Northwest built prior to 1935 (defined as hickory era golf courses) which are still in existence. Many early courses began as nine hole affairs and then expanded to eighteen in later years. Typically these early courses were first laid out by the greens committee and therefore cannot be attributed to a particular architect. Over the years some relocated, and others underwent redesigns, often by different golf architects.  Very few courses now retain the original layout. — compiled by Martin Pool.  Please e-mail Martin with corrections or additional information.
