Client Course Description

Sahalee was designed by noted golf course architect Ted Robinson with later renovations by Rees Jones. It has been consistently ranked in the top 100 courses in America by Golf Digest for over 30 years.

This all weather, year round course is characteristically Northwest with majestic Douglas fir, red cedar and hemlock trees lining its narrow fairways. Sahalee’s 27-holes consist of three 9-hole courses of equal caliber (the North, South and East course), any two of which can be combined to a standard 18-hole course.

Designer Notes

Sahalee Country Club, located in Redmond hosted the 1998 PGA Championship. The course is best known for its tight fairways framed with magnificent evergreens. However, the ever changing rolling terrain adds a great deal to the beauty and playability of this outstanding venue.

Rees Jones, Inc. has developed comprehensive Tree Management and Golf Course Master Plans for Sahalee Country Club. Implementation of the Tree Management plan is on-going.

The first phase of the Master Plan work includes renovations to all of the bunkers on the three golf courses and is a terrific opportunity to improve the playability, positioning and drama of each bunker. Construction of the first phase begins in August of 2022.
