Jackson Park Golf Club
At Washington State's busiest golf course, foursomes go off every six minutes, and there's always an audience for a nervous golfer's first drive of the day. The fairways and greens show a little wear under the heavy traffic. The course is par 71, 6482 yards. There's also a short 9-hole course. Make reservations up to one week in advance, especially recommended for weekends. Singles can usually walk on. Check for junior, senior, twilight, early morning and winter discounts.
The Greens were well drained after the rainiest November in history. they were in great shape. The fairways are a bit rough nad there is some utility work being done as of November 2006. the course is layed out well and quite pretty in spots. The green and falg placements are a decent challenge and some of the holes are harder than they look. the Par 5's are quite a stretch and you need two of your best shots to reach in regulation. the greens are small and not an easy target, so this makes it a bit more challenging than what you would expect and quite fun.
Nice putting greens for pre-game practice.
I've played Jackson quite a few times since the remodel and thinks it's improved a lot. There are challenges on nearly every hole and you have to think, not just flail away. The price is on the low end, the greens are "OK" for this time of year and the crowds were minimal. Even after a good rain, the course was dry and played fair.
Give it a try (and take a cart, it's hilly), you won't regret it. And for the money, it's tough to beat.
Played Jackson for the first time in several years, and no doubt it'll be the last time. The course is in disgusting condition. Fairways are very thin and dry. You'd expect to have a good lie on green grass in the fairway, but that's not the case. The changes is the past few years look like they weren't planned at all - just do something strange here, and maybe do something stranger over there. The parks department needs to close the course, or completely renovate it. It reminds me of the cow pasture I played in as a kid.
