Whispering Firs Golf Course
Quick 18 on a hot Sunday afternoon
I tee'd off at about 1pm as a single and didn't have ANYBODY in front of me the entire round. Finished 18 holes in a record 2.5 hours. The only hassle was checking in at the JBLM visitors center which took a longer that it normally takes to check me in because their computer/photo system wasn't working properly.

This is a nice course.... Greens were pretty slow.... You can definitely attack the pin on your approach....

bring your own lunch
Wonderful day of golf - nice course. What I don't understand is why the facilities (restaurant/bar) close at 3 PM when there is still plenty of play/daylight. Same deal at Ft. Lewis (Eagles Pride).

loved the course. mostly wide fairways and consistant greens
First thing i have not seen anywhere... you have to go onto JBLM which means unless you already have clearance to enter you must stop and get a pass. you have to have your insurance and reg. for the car as well as it helps to have proof of the tee time. They will call and verify anyway so sing up before you go.
We golfed in the afternoon starting at 1pm. Took about 20 minutes to get through the gate. Good thing we were planning on hitting some balls or we would have missed our time.
We did not have anyone behind us until the ninth hole, and we let them pass and then did not have anyone behind us the rest of the round. I don't understand why? the course is very nice and so are the staff. there are a few places where there is some damage, and a couple of the tee boxes were just finishing being repaired, but the rest of the course is in very good condition. very enjoyable. Even the tough holes are fair and can be par'd by the above average golfer.
We will be back... even without any discount, it's rates are good for the quality of the course... but with a GolfNow discounted rate it's a no brainer!
someone made the comment that the restaurant was closed... we found out that is the same issue. closed at 3 pm, was still able to buy a bag of chips and pop though(although a crow came into my cart as we were teeing off on 10 and stole my bag of chips... man, i have never wanted a birdie more than right then!). BEWARE, i think it has learned to do this..

This is a really nice course. It'll be even better when the 2 or 3 holes under construction is finished. One down fall was that the cafe closed at 3 on a Saturday.

Fun, but challenging, course!
Standing at the tee blocks, Whispering Firs looks like a wide open, somewhat easy, course. Surprise! That rough is long and thick and will grab your ball and hide it. It's hard to hit a clean shot out of the rough, which adds to the challenge of the course. Hit it straight! Very fun day, great pace of play, pretty setting, nice folks.

the course is in need of some care. greens needed to be rolled... many of the roughs were quite long and shaggy... difficult to find ball at times with a lot of white blooms.... greens=C... tees=B... fairways=C roughs=D
