I’m not the best golfer you’ll ever meet, but I’m learning. And besides, it seems to be a lifetime learning-type sport anyway. I love the views, the pace, and the quiet. I’ve had the chance to golf at Tapps Island a few times, and it’s one of the best 9-hole courses around. It’s challenging because of the pure number of water hazards (it’s on an island!), and I actually love playing there in the winter when the reservoir goes down a little – I lose fewer balls that way.
There are stunning views of the lake, Mt. Rainier, and beautiful lakefront homes. You get to cross inlets over wooden bridges in your cart a few times during play, and they’ve recently renovated the 9th hole with a beautiful waterfall and pond. A lot of people haven’t caught on that it’s a public course, and reasonable to play there, so it’s often uncrowded. If you get a chance to tee off soon, Tapps Island is worth checking out!
