Golf Digest, trailing only 1998 PGA Championship site Sahalee, ranks this visually thrilling course second in the state of Washington. From the back markers, the course plays 7,293 yards with a course rating two strokes higher than its par of 72.

Located in central Washington, the course features two distinctly different nines. No. 7 on the Lakes nine (shown here) is a sturdy par 5 of 576 yards. The hole, however, pales in comparison to No. 6 on the Desert nine-another par 5 that, at 679 yards, plays over 100 yards longer.
