Ranked "#7 Among the Top 10 Courses in Washington" by Golf Digest (2007)
Known for its superb, year-round conditioning, Indian Summer Golf & Country Club is among the Northwest's premier, private golf clubs designed for the enjoyment of individuals and families alike. The Peter L. H. Thompson designed golf course is built to rigid, tournament-caliber specifications with magnificent, old-growth forest, and an abundance of water features. Voted "Best of Nike Tour" by players, the course is rated one of the top five toughest courses in the state of Washington. However, with six sets of tees, golfers of every skill level will have a challenging and enjoyable experience round after round.
During October through December the maintenance team shifts focus away from daily course maintenance routines to preparing the golf course for the winter month.
We have completed punching and sanding the greens, tees and approaches. Next, the fairways will be aerated using a deep-tine aerator that penetrates down into 8 inches into the soil profile. The sealed and cooked pockets on the fairways will be targeted first as these areas need to be opened and overseeded so that they can begin to heal through the winter and into spring. We will also target poorly draining areas in order to minimize excessively mushy pockets that result in ruts from cart and equipment traffic. As long as the ground remains firm we will attempt to hit every fairway but that is weather dependent.
Have a great fall and winter! Go Hawks!!
