When was the last time that you set a tee time in Lynnwood? Golf is a popular past time in America and Lynnwood is no exception. The National Golf Foundation has estimated that 1 in 3 Americans over the age of 6 have played golf, watched it or read about it. It helps that golf is a game of skill that can be played and enjoyed by the young and old and new and long-time players alike.
If you are looking to schedule some golf Lynnwood has options! The first of these is the Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course.
Buit in 1991, Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course is a fun 18-hole course. You also do not have to bring all of your own equipment. The course has merchandise, available equipment rentals and a Pro Shop on-site. It is also open year round for golf in any month. The course’s design underscores the goal of having fun with golf. There are both tight fairways and a hole layout designed to test a golfer’s skill, but also not prove too frustrating if it has been awhile since you last played. The course is located immediately south of Edmonds Community College with its operations housed in the college’s Woodway Building. You can stop by for an occasional game or visit more regularly. For more regular golfers there is the Premier Golf Club Loyalty and Rewards program. This club is to rewards those golfers frequently visiting the Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course. Rewards take the form of discounts, including those on Green Fees, Range Balls and use of Golf Carts. In addition, there is special pricing available to club members for certain merchandise, which varies over time. Read more about how to join the Premier Golf Club Loyalty and Rewards Program.
Getting to the Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course is easy. There is ample parking spots available right near the course in parking lot Q. Edmonds Community College and the course are conveniently located near several local streets and State Route 99 is less than 1/2 mile away. In addition, the Golf Course Trail provides pedestrian and walking access to the course. Even if you are not playing yourself it is fun to walk the trail and watch golfers as they play through. The Golf Course Trail travels the perimeter of the Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course and alternates between soft and hard surfaces. It is a fun walk as you have the course to one side, homes on the other and greenery overhead. A portion of the trail also goes through the Edmonds Community College campus. You can also follow the course on Facebook where you can keep track of the latest course condition and other news. There is also more information on the course’s website, including the latest rates.
