The Home Course

The Home Course was designed by golf course architect Mike Asmundson of Scottsdale, Arizona. Opened in early summer of 2007, The Home Course in DuPont, Wash. was immediately lauded by Golfweek magazine as the No. 2-ranked “Best Public Course in Washington.”

The course is cooperatively owned and operated by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association and the Washington State Golf Association. The Home Course will eventually house the offices of the WSGA, PNGA, and USGA activities in the Northwest, as well as other allied golf associations in “Northwest Golf House.” It will be a home for junior golf programs, environmental stewardship and turfgrass research.
