The Timberwolf – Olympia, Washington
Designer: Andre Quenneville
Firm / Speed: Med / Med-Fast
Top 100 Ranking: 8th (November 2015)
Designer’s Notes: Tucked into a small bay in Puget Sound lies The Timberwolf; an 18 hole, 7045 Yard Par 71 Championship Course and housing development. Featuring a wide array of tight, tree lined holes and wide open coastal holes, The Timberwolf hopes to be a unique and exciting round of golf for all skill levels.
Quick Review Notes: An outstanding plot and lots of great holes. The front side plays a bit easy while the back 9 picks up in difficulty quickly, mostly due to large slopes on the greens, making approach shot placement very important. The 18th hole particularly sticks out as one of my favorites. Among a very prolific design portfolio from Andre, this one ranks at the top for me (I admittedly have a lot more of Andre’s courses still to play, though).
