Rainier Golf & Country Club

Designed and built by Bob Collins, Rainier Golf & Country Club opened its first nine holes in 1920. It was considered one of the finest “out-in-the-country golf links” in the Seattle area, with the second nine opened for play in 1924. The second oldest private golf club in Seattle, Rainier G&CC has matured and evolved into one of the most imaginative and demanding tests of golf in the Northwest. The course is a shot-maker’s delight; it rewards power, finesse, and most importantly, accuracy.
