Sudden Valley Golf Course

Sudden Valley golf course - Bellingham


18 holes 150d6       web link 150d9    

we say 75d1We Say: I've played Sudden Valley many times (it was my home course for 10 years) so I'll try to be objective - From a layout perspective, it's one of the best in the NW - Sudden Valley is definitely a tale of two nines - The front 9 meanders around Lake Whatcom and is reasonably flat and an easy walk - Doglegs and elevation changes define the back 9 as it sits on a hillside overlooking the lake and winds through tall timber - Playing 18-holes at Sudden Valley gives the feel of playing two completely different golf courses - To be honest, in years past the course conditioning left much to be desired - With such a great layout it was sad that the conditioning was so poor - However in 2012 a new superintendent was hired and he has transformed Sudden Valley into one of the finest tracks in the entire NW - The greens are fast & true and the conditioning finally lives up to the layout - If you haven't played here recently, do yourself a favor and make time to play Sudden Valley!
