Auburn Golf Course
Greens Still Not Up to Snuff
Altho' someone in the proshop told me that the greens had gone through the spring seeding process and were ready for play, it was obvious that they were not in their normal good condition. Greens were bumpy with punch hole marks still affecting the path of putts, and downhill putts were surprisingly slow. Normally, I have 25 - 29 putts per round but on this day, I had 38, and I attribute this to the greens, some which seemed not to have been mown after the seeding. I have played this course many times always marveling over the great conditions even 'tho it's a muni course. I just wish that pro shop employee had been more honest with me as I could care less about fairways and rough but I always want at least near pristeen green conditions. Think I'll wait a few more weeks before returning here.

Best course for the money
Other than the greens being plugged the course was fantastic. Well maintained course, give it a couple of weeks and the greens will be pristine.

Great layout, great shape
Pro shop very friendly, and helpful. Course was wet but so was everything else in the NW. Cart paths only, proved to be a challenge for a old man with bad knees, But when you play after several days of rain you have to expect those conditions. They maintain the course very well, Looks great!

T for terrible!
This was a joke. They over book. There were 3 foursomes on every hole. Stood around for 3 hours waiting to hit .. No Marshalls...There was a group of 6 right in the middle of it all. Got through 9 - holes of the 18 we paid for before dark. Never will play Auburn again!!!!!

fun day of golfing
Course was in excellent condition, greens were in great shape. Pace of play was a little slow but it wasn't miserable. Had a great time and staff were super friendly.

Damp - but enjoyable
With all the rain in Jan/Feb - most courses in Seattle area are wet. Auburn is no exception. That being said, the course was actually in pretty good shape. Yes, there were spots where the fairways were quagmires - but actually got roll on some tee shots. Overall - enjoyed the course and the round. will definitely be going back.
