Alderbrook Golf & Yacht Club
Spring has sprung
Nice day at Alderbrook - for late March that is. I love this course when the weather is wet. We escaped any serious precipitation. Greens were a little quicker than I expected for this time of year but they hold well, are fair and run true. Sand was actually dry and loose. I really should play here more often but get distracted by all the other opportunities in the peninsula/south sound area.

Fast greens, short, enjoyable.
Played Alderbrook with two buddies and we had a fun time. We preferred holes 10-18. The clubhouse was nice and new and the pro shop staff and restaurant were both great. Hole 8 is the strangest par 5 you'll ever play with 2 extreme dog legs. Overall it's a fine course with fast greens.

Intriguing course, challenging fairways.
Lots of challenges in terrain and approaches. Chances to use most clubs in your bag. Newly punched and sanded greens so hard to judge over-all.

Beautiful but a bit quirky.
I loved this course. The fairways and greens were immaculate. I had never experienced greens with a definite grain that effected the speed of the ball so they had an additional challenge to them, but they were true and fun. The only hole I didn't care for was the par 5 eighth, a double dog leg. There was no apparent landing area for your tee shot. Next time I'll just take a medium iron and try to keep it in play off the tee. Very good course, worth the drive.

Course is in a lovely setting but has a split personality.
The front nine is narrow, lined with trees and almost every tee shot and many second shots are blind - best to play with a local to avoid the ever present out of bound stakes! The back nine is more open and the holes lay out in front of you more clearly. Greens are fabulous. Five sets of tee blocks for every level of player is a wonderful feature on a course with as much tree trouble as this one has. Nice clubhouse. Short but usable driving range.

Fun course winding through a nice housing area. Nice views.
Alderbrook Golf Club is a nice course that winds through a pretty housing area. The bad part about that is a lot of OB, and some is pretty close to the fairway. Some interesting canyon-like holes. Lots of uneven lies--I think the ball was below my feet half of the time, even in the fairway. Greens were firm with plenty of challenging breaks. Some nice views of the Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains.
