Located in sunny Sequim, Washington. In the rain shadow of the Olympic national Park, Sunland Golf and Country Club enjoys excellent golf weather year round.
The Sunland Golf Course is a 6300 yard challenge from the black tees(back tees) and has proven itself to be a "shot makers" golf course. The fairways of this target golf course are lined with towering evergreens and hardwood trees and lays out within the Sunland Community. The course has five sets of tees and is enjoyable for players of all skill levels though longer hitters will need to be disciplined with their club selection in order to avoid the dreaded double bogey or disasterous "snowman" as they are easy to make on this great test of target/proper placement golf. This is a course that one must play multiple times before they are able to make a proper plan of attack. The more one plays the course, the more one enjoys the test of golf that it never stops presenting. This is a golf course that will truly make you a better golfer.
The original design of the Sunland Golf Course was completed by one of the most prolific and revered golf course architects of the Pacific Northwest, Arthur Vernon Macan. In fact, Sunland Golf Course was A.V. Macans’ final design before his passing in 1964. Unfortunately, he did not get to see his vision become reality due to a heart attack that occurred while on Sunland property. The routing of the front nine was completed according to Macans’ design, however the routing of the back nine was revised. A.V. Macan was inducted into the Pacific Northwest Golf Hall of Fame in 1989. Some say his spirit still wonders the fairways of his final design.
