Boating and Golf

Living so close to great golf courses and to the Puget Sound makes it easy for Bow Lake residents to escape to the water for a leisurely sail or the links for a quick round.


Whether you’re committed to hitting the links every weekend or just a duffer, you’re sure to find the experience that is right for you.

Tyee Golf Course
The 18-hole, Tyee Golf Course is located just over a mile south of Bow Lake and is a great course for a range of skill levels. Open year-round, the course also offers attractive senior and weekday rates.

West Seattle Golf Course
Rated one of the country’s best urban municipal courses by Golf Magazine, the West Seattle Golf Course is as beautiful as it is playable. With sweeping views of downtown Seattle and Elliot Bay, players of all skills levels are guaranteed a good time, if not a good score.

Founded in 1920, the Rainier Golf & Country Club is the second-oldest private club in Seattle. In addition to a challenging 18-hole course, the club also offers members-only service in the elegant main dining room, a spacious, lifeguard-attended outdoor pool and a small exercise facility.
