Rated 5 out of 5 by u000007652922 Great course amazing staff
I have been playing this course for 5 years , the staff are just amazing and so friendly. I hardly ever have to wait and half the time I have the course to my self. I golf all over the south sound. But hands down my favorite place to play.

Impressed me for my first time playing here. Manicured fairways, challenging distances and obstacles, really had fun!
Scorecards could be updated to wax (currently just sliced photocopies that didn't hold up to rain).
Hard to get in (need a temp pass to get into the base) but the experience is worth the trip and low greens fees to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kered67 Good course at a great price
Course was well kept, grass was cut and greens free of debris for the most part. The course had a few challenging dog legs, but you could still shoot a low score. Come early due to security at the visitor center.

Great course, very slow play during to a scramble, a 5-some of walkers. Staff is friendly, condition of the course was very nice. Greens rolled smooth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bob9903408 Lots of sharp doglegs!
Whispering Firs is a very nice course and a super great value with a GolfNow hot deal. The course was in good shape, especially considering the hot, dry summer we had. The course has a lot of sharp doglegs that require conservative play, because if you find yourself among those whispering firs, you'll probably pitch it out sideways, unless you get lucky. The design is why they got a 4 overall from me. Good news is that you'll probably find your ball--the grass is tamped down in the woods. The sand in the bunkers was exquisite. Greens had quite a bit of slope and good speed. Some signs of fungus on the greens--not a problem if the staff is forehanded about their care. Overall, a nice place to golf!

Rated 4 out of 5 by David2026166 Don't Try To Play During a Tournament!
There were mostly pluses during my round: Pro shop guy Steve was competent and friendly; paired up with a really nice couple (Wayne and Lisa) who play there regularly, and added to my enjoyment; course was in really good shape; pace of play for the front nine was excellent!
The one con to yesterday's round was that there was a tournament going on. While Steve put us out on the back nine to start, when we made the turn the front nine was almost at a standstill. There were four foursomes stacked up at hole #2; I decided to cut my losses and call it a day. Since I got a great deal on green fees, I still ended up with a good value for 9 holes.
But the lesson learned is this: Be sure to call the pro shop for both Whispering Firs and Eagles Pride military golf courses to make sure there aren't any tournaments scheduled before booking your round.

Getting on base is a bit of a pain. We got a super deal through Golfnow $15 including cart. We were early and were allowed to go off the back in order to beat a tourney starting off the front. As a twosome, we never caught up with anybody until 15 holes behind us. A nice speedy round.
