Marketing hype aside, this daily-fee club really *does* offer some gorgeous views of the Seattle skyline and surrounding region. Well-known architect Bob Cupp designed both the Coal Creek and China Creek courses, working with PGA tour star (and Seattle-area native) Fred Couples.
China Creek features five par-3s, nine par-4s, and four par-5s; the course stretches from 4,782 to 6,632 yards. The morning rates (including cart) are $80 for the public and $65 for cardholders; junior and... [more]

This review is for china creek.
This course is pretty fun to play. A few holes have excellent views of Seattle and Lake Washington.
The clubhouse and staff were excellent. this course has an excellent practice facility.
Many holes handsomely reward good tee shots. Although, it is, pretty easy to lose balls if you hit it too far off the fairway. Nice, interesting, and well maintained greens provide a true roll on your putts.
We played on a Saturday morning. the pace of play on the front nine was very slow. The group in front of us was two holes off the pace. We mentioned it too the marshal at the turn and after that the group picked up the pace. We ended up finishing in under 4.5 hours.
Overall this is a good course good day of golf. My only complaint is the price and pace of play. If I pay $100 to play a course I would expect the starter to pace the groups a little better, it is not fun to wait on every shot. I have played several other course managed by the same company and the typically space out the tee times a little more.

Phenomenal views of the entire Puget Sound, Seattle, Space Needle, etc. Lots of elevation changes, some big, some very small greens, excellent conditions.
A Scottish bagpipe player performs each day as the sun sets.
