Apple Tree Golf Course, one of the Pacific Northwest's premier golf experiences. One of Golf Digest’s 4-star winners, the course is carved from the rolling terrain of 100 year-old orchards. The world-famous 17th hole, a 10,000 square foot "Apple" shaped island, has been named "Best Par Three" by the Seattle Times, "one of Washington's top 18 holes" by Washington CEO and continues to be featured in countless golf publications, calendars and web sites. Give it a try and earn bragging rights if you make “par” on the 17th at Apple Tree. The rest of the championship track plays over 6,900 yards featuring a variety of scenic challenges including lakes, fountains, and a beautiful cascading waterfall. The Apple Tree Golf course features a fine restaurant and lounge overlooking the course as well as a pro golf shop. The Apple Tree Restaurant in the club house serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is an award-winning dining experience with spectacular views of the golf course and the surrounding valley.

Suntides Golf Course, nestled in a small valley just northwest of the city of Yakima plays over 5,941 yards. The charming course was built on the previous site of a dairy farm and is now surrounded by residential homes, fruit orchards, the Naches River and nearby rock cliffs inscribed with ancient Native American petroglyphs. Suntides offers a restaurant, lounge and RV park in the quiet setting adjacent to the 18-Hole Championship Putting Course. This putting course offers 2,323 feet of quality grass greens, sloped fairways surrounded by roughs, traps, tricky doglegs and water hazards. Enjoy stepping out of your RV and walking to the course on sunny mornings to play your first round of golf or take on the putting challenge.

River Ridge Golf Course , a 9-hole course featuring 2,130 yards of golf. This course opened in 2003 in Selah, WA just north of Yakima. A four acre lake and bridges blended into the design to protect natural habitat. River Ridge has a clubhouse, pro shop, full bar, carts and rental equipment. The “lodge” style restaurant clubhouse features 2800 square feet of deck, (700 square feet covered) overlooking the course.

All three of these courses are located only a 2 hour 15 minute scenic drive from Seattle and minutes from Downtown Yakima for evening entertainment, wine tasting, numerous restaurants and the Ummelina International Day Spa.
