Sahalee Country Club Now Available on aboutGOLF Simulators

aboutGOLF is excited to announce the latest addition to our course library, Sahalee Country Club. This private club in a quiet suburb of Seattle has played host to a number of prestigious championships including the:

· 1998 PGA Championship

· 2002 WGG-NEC Invitational

· 2010 US Senior Open

· 2016 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship

While Sahalee has 27 holes of fantastic golf, the South/North routing is the tournament routing and home to great champions like Vijay Singh, Bernhard Langer and Brook Henderson. We are excited to bring you all three routings that members play. Whether it be the North/South, East/South or North/East routing we cant wait for you to experience the towering pines of the pacific northwest.

What to Expect: If your idea of heaven on earth is a golf course that cuts through dense groves of trees, you'll love Sahalee. Located outside of Sahalee, Ted Robinson's tight 1969 design weaves through looming Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, and other evergreen trees to strikes fear into claustrophobic golfers. Plenty of bunkers and collection of water features defend the courses' fairways and greens, but it is the towering trees that are the most likely to add strokes to your scorecard. Take it from Colin Montgomerie who, when asked about Sahalee, said this, “From above, I’m sure it looks like you can only walk single-file down the fairways.” The dense forestation between each hole and gently rolling terrain create a peaceful, isolated feeling that is difficult to find at most courses. Host of the 1998 PGA Championship, 2002 World Golf Championship-NEC Invitational, and the 2010 Senior U.S. Open, Sahalee provides a unique test of golf that isn’t found on any PGA Tour stops or other major championship host sites.
