Trophy Lake Golf & Casting
My favorite Oki course
There are no extremely challenging holes (#4 the exception) and no gimme holes either. The design is set in the Kitsap countryside with views of Mount Rainer and the Olympic Mountains. The course maintenance is always super, and the staff positive and friendly. This John Fought design shares several similarities to his Washington National design - Trophy has no homes around it, which is more to my liking. Playing the Olympic at Gold Mountain one day and Trophy the next would be a fabulous Kitsap weekend.

A trophy course on the Kitsap Peninsula
If you've only got time for one round on the Kitsap Peninsula, it has to be the Olympic course at Gold Mountain. Trophy Lake is no slouch as a quality backup. I played both on a nice weekend trip with my dad back in 2009.
There are no true signature holes at Trophy Lake, just a steady stream of good ones. The setting reflects the natural environment of the peninsula. It's peaceful and quiet playing through all those evergreens.
Fishermen love the property, too. Fly rods are available in the pro shop. The golf course's ponds are stocked with fish.
