Horseshoe Lake Golf Course
Great shape for this time of the year
The course was in good shape, with a few greens still a bit rough and/or sandy. Yet other greens were in great shape! Fairways were mowed and were similar to summer conditions. Didn't find any sold or wet spots.

The course was fun to play.
The greens were plugged and sanded, but the rest of the course
play more like summer then spring (in western Washington).

March weather was not friendly to this course.
The front nine on this course are easy to walk, the back nine I strongly recomend using a cart. Raised greens are in strong need of this course with the amount of standing ground water throughout the 18 holes.
It was unfortunate that we had many of our drives sink in to the ground do to the condition of the fairways. I found it to be a course of fair to midland for the area that I live. Maybe it dries out more in the summer?
The ease of play lends itself more to the beginning to average golfers. I would recommend this course to someone just wanting to go have a good time with close friends.
The restaurant and bar were closed while I was there, the have a sign that they have applied for a liqour license, so maybe they have plans for the future.

the course needs some tender love and care.
the course played well but it was quite in need of cleaning. the cart paths were covered with debris and appeared they hadn't been cleaned all winter. the greens hadn't been mowed and were really tough to putt on. this was the first time I had played this course and will go back just to see if it has been updated. Overall it was a lot of fun.

I play this course a lot.
I really hope that the new owners make some effort to improve this place. The tee boxes are adequate, but not great. The greens are usually ok but have had issues with fungus previous.
There are very few bunkers anywhere on the course, but don't think this makes play much easier.. Fairways are challenging. Did someone say "marshals"? Forget about it. The former owner used to promote marshals on horseback. And for awhile, the Marshals were some attractive young ladies. Not anymore.
Same thing goes for cart service. Unless its a Saturday and busy, forget it. Watch your receipt if you purchase food/soda from the pro shop. They WERE adding a mandatory "gratuity" even if you got your own soda from the cooler. The restaurant has just recently reopened. We played today and could not even get alcohol other than beer or wine. No licence to sell it.
If you want food or drink, go elsewhere. Cheap golf...its here.

This course was good earlier but really needs some maintenance now. Roughs are inconsistent and some are very high.
The course needed much care. Fairways were decent, greens were fair, but the rough was ugly.

Fun course to play.
Some narrow landing areas ans thin fairway. The dry weather has helped dryout some troubled dranage areas, hopefully the grounds crew can make the best of it and get some fixes completed.

The course is well marked.
Enjoyed the fact that the course is well marked from tee to tee.The back nine is really fun.

Summary, as written, is embellished just a little but it is a very fun course and we are still looking for the Marshals.
This course is "off the beaten track" to a great extent since one has to have the course as their destination. But worth the trip since this is a very interesting and often challenging course to play with every hole being different, track is usually very well maintained since it is pretty much low budget in comparison to most courses, and well worth the green fees. This course is not well known to most golfers in Washington who usually say, "huh" when the course is mentioned, but those who have played here give thumbs up for a really fun and challenging course that can be played around four hours consistently. Friendly staff and community.

Horseshoe Lake is in need of attention. The tee boxes were in rough condition, the greens were not well kept, and there was not any service on a very hot day. Not a good value for the money. I would rather go elsewhere.

Course well maintained. Amazing back Nine
This course is a great course to play. Not heavy traffic (players) No homes boarder this course so the views are great. Will return again and again as long a price stays low.
