Detailed description
Newaukum Valley Golf Course is a Public, 27 hole golf facility located in Chehalis, Washington. This facility has three nine hole courses that are played in three different eighteen hole combinations. The 9-hole segments are The South Course, The East Course, and The West Course.

Newaukum Valley Golf Course opened in 1979. The courses were designed by John H. Date and Henry M. Date.

The courses are wooded and range from wide open to semi-tight. There is a scenic river flowing throughout the courses, and water hazards come into play on several holes. The signature hole is #15 on the South/West Course, a 502-yard, par 5, requiring a tee shot up a dogleg right fairway, then a lofted iron shot to a hard-to-hold tiered green.

__________________ South Nine at Newaukum Valley Golf Course

The first of two “Valley” courses, the South Nine, will challenge even the best with a mixture of rolling hills, large trees, and well placed bunkers. Respect the river, it will intimidate the straightest of drivers, and has been known to force a club change or two.

If one hopes to shoot par, playing the fairway is key. Room for error is minimal, and birdie chances are few and far between.

South Course measures 2,981 yards from the white tees and 2,672 yards from the red tees.

__________________ East Nine at Newaukum Valley Golf Course

The second of the two “Valley” courses, the East Nine, plays slightly more forgiving, but don’t let some of the wide fairways and large greens get to your head.

Numerous out of bounds threats await to claim your tee shots. Club selection is the key to managing your way through the East Nine.

East Course measures 2,853 yards from the white tees and 2,440 yards from the red tees.

__________________ West Nine at Newaukum Valley Golf Course

The West Nine is the shortest but most deceptive of the three courses. Playing at a par 33 its challenges are often overlooked. Misplay even one shot and watch those strokes mount up on your scorecard.

Hitting greens in regulation is a must if one hopes to walk away with par. There is no room for error with large trees lining nearly every fairway, eager to obstruct a wayward tee shot.

West Course measures 2,492 yards from the white tees and 2,190 yards from the red tees.
