Semiahmoo Golf & Country Club Recognized by Pacific Northwest Golfer Magazine
Par-4 11th hole selected as one of the ‘Great Holes of the Northwest’
In the November 2016 issue of Pacific Northwest Golfer magazine, the par-4 11th hole at Semiahmoo Golf & Country Club in Blaine, Wash. is recognized as one of the “Great Holes of the Northwest,” one of just four holes selected each year by the Northwest’s largest and longest-running golf publication.
A short par-4, the 11th hole doglegs to the right, and there is water all down the right side, with a thumb of it sticking out into the fairway in front of the green. The hole provides multiple options for play off the tee, depending on where each player wants to place their tee shot, whether laying up far away from the water or playing it closer to allow for a shorter approach shot. The narrow green is protected by bunkers in the front and back; and the farther right the hole location, the smaller the room for error on the approach.
Opened in 1987, Semiahmoo G&CC was Arnold Palmer’s first design in the state of Washington. The course is consistently ranked in the top-10 “Best Courses You Can Play” in the state by Golfweek magazine. It has been a qualifying site for the U.S. Open, U.S. Amateur and U.S. Senior Open championships. Visit www.semiahmoo.com.
