Having grown up in Upstate New York, I have become well acquainted with the season of Fall. It is my favorite season bar none, the colors, the crisp air, the apples. All of that and more, which is currently missing from my life living in Southern California.
On a recent trip to Seattle I got all the Fall I could ever want and then some when playing Nile Shire. NS is a smaller golf course just north of Seattle sitting along the 5 freeway but it is a lot of fun. The greens roll true and there is a bunch of challenge as you wend your way between the tall trees.
I think my favorite hole has to be the third which is a dogleg left with an awesome lake to your right. Such a fun a picturesque hole!
San Francisco is often thought of as hilly and Seattle is no slouch in that department. Nile Shire runs up and down the hills that it has really maximizing the space where the course sits.
This all leads up to the signature par 3 hole which is basically like hitting off a cliff.
(the green is down there somewhere)
Of course because it is the Pacific Northwest, they have some fun along the way for golfers :)
I was really charmed by this course. It will never be ranked in the top 100 of anything but it still presents a really enjoyable round of golf (and is affordable as well). Clearly the course shines in the fall with all the colors around and mist coming off the lake, the season turns this course from good to special.
