This 9-holer ranks among the best

HARRINGTON, Wash. – Perhaps the best of the region’s nine-hole small-town courses, Harrington Golf and Country Club is also the longest, stretching to 6,381 yards from the white and blue tee markers on each hole.

The course, which was designed by Robert Putnam, opened in 1962 and features an abundance of well-placed fairway and greenside bunkers, along with three ponds that come into play on four holes – including the par-3 ninth, which plays 150-plus yards uphill and over a pond to a small, elevated green that is protected right and left by sand traps.

Another excellent hole on this well-conditioned course that covers 64 acres of what used to be a wheat field, is the 402-yard, par-4, second, which doglegs slightly to the right along one of the many tree-lined fairways and around a small fairway bunker to a pair-shaped green with traps in front and water on the right.

Adding to the appeal of Harrington’s splendid layout is a grass-teed driving range and full-service clubhouse.
