I have high praise for the golf course but a lot of golfers, myself included were more than disappointed that during the week of the 2015 US Open at nearby Chambers Bay, Salish Cliffs took it upon themselves to increase their rates for the week from $95 to $150 a round. Unfortunately Salish Cliffs didn't see this as an opportunity to showcase their property, instead they saw it as way to "gouge" the consumer for short term gain. Having played Salish Cliffs no less than a dozen times in the past two years (5 rounds in Apr/15), I don't think they'll be getting any more of my business on future golf trips to the Pacific Northwest area.
The last of the Par 3's on the course almost "Derailed" the 2015 US Open champion.
534 yards sounds like a long Par 4, but everybody got plenty of roll down the hill...most players were hitting nine iron or less into the green.
With a drop of around 100 feet from tee to green, this was an entertaining hole.
The start of a difficult stretch of holes. Marvelous hole requiring two strong shots to find the green tucked into the hill.
The USGA received all kinds of flak for this years US Open setup, not sure why as it produced great drama and a worthy champion. There should be more courses like this on the PGA tour.
A long, left centre drive takes the water out of play.
This can be a long hole if the prevailing wind is blowing straight into you.
Just like Hole 10, Hole 11 requires an approach over moving water, heavy rough and a greenside bunker to help you focus on your third shot into this tiered green.
