Port Ludlow Golf Course

Port Ludlow Golf Course was designed by Robert Muir Graves and is comprised of 18-holes known as Tide and Timber. One flows down toward the water and the other treks through the dense forest. Renowned Pacific Northwest pro golfer Ted Wurtz was lured to Port Ludlow as the inaugural PGA Professional for its opening in May of 1975.
