Golf is a sport for all ages and can vary depending on the terrain of the course in question. Like many sports, you can find participants on the course year-round – through rain, hail and snow – driving down the fairway and putting on the green.
But courses around the world offer more than a green to play on. They offer beautiful backdrops to enjoy the game and indulge in the nature around you. The Golf Club at Newcastle is one such arena.
Comprised of two major gold courses, the Coal Creek and China Creek, the Newcastle Golf Course is an expansive, three-hundred-and-fifty-acre property set on the edge between Bellevue and Newcastle and backed by Cougar Mountain.
Coal Creek offers a stunning view of the area’s everchanging city skylines. The scenery of rolling hilltops are perfect portrayals of the Pacific Northwest and its breathtaking beauty. While China Creek offers closer views of the Eastside, its naturally preserved areas provide drama and exhilaration to partakers.
Both courses offer 13,656 yards of rolling hillsides mixed with lush greens, an exhilarating challenge for golfers at every stage, and variety at every hole, including par 3’s, par 4’s and par 5’s. Each aesthetically pleasing and highly acclaimed course, is complex and enjoyable in its own away, creating a balance between challenging and comfort for golfers.
Newcastle is a small, yet beautiful city squished between the shores of Lake Washington to the west and the foothill of Cougar Mountain to the east and the two championship, 18-hole public courses provide oodles of entertainment for Newcastle-locals, residents across Washington and travelers alike.
Serene and tranquil, many find the scenery and surrounding backdrop a peaceful getaway from the areas’ urban growth.
Akin to most courses, the Newcastle Golf Course offers a 44,000-square-foot mega-clubhouse, complete with three dining areas, golf shop, and more! Their practice facility and the Rusty Putter offer more excitement beyond the two courses.
