I don't put too much stock in a forecast that's more than 4 or 5 days out around here, it could go either way. We've had a really wet winter, but there have actually been alot of chances to play without getting completely soaked, or even wet for that matter.
Ha. Calling East Tacoma a course is generous. I kinda sorta ended up doing some safari to at least feel like I threw 9 holes.

Bagging is an addiction. But yeah, you'll want a serious map or a local for Lakewood. For some reason, nobody blinked when I asked about the lack of signage on Seattle courses. I guess it's just a thing there.

Ok, well I'm a few hours out from catching my flight. The plan is to throw White River and then Lakewood. I'm hoping to be at White River around noon on Thursday the 27th, but that is totally reliant on arrival time, which should be 930, then getting through the airport with luggage, rental car, the traffic, ect. I will be using a temp cell phone( 5593040646) when I get there. I'll be the guy carrying a black mahal!

Cool. I won't be around for Lakewood (not that I would be of any use since that one is still on my list), but I will make every effort to meet you at White River. I will be the dork wearing a bright neon yellow boonie hat, bright yellow dry fit long sleeve, and a tie dye tee shirt from Mando's in Auburn (White River's host). Call or text when you are about an hour out. See PM for my contact info.

Seattle weather looks to be in your favor as tomorrow afternoon should be just scattered showers and light wind.

Heads up: Lakewood may be in its 27-hole ace run configuration. It is supposed to be like that for April 22 and April 29, but they talked about leaving it like that for the whole week. Attached is a map for the ace run layout if they left it that way; otherwise the layout is on the kiosk by the parking lot.

Thanks for the information. I grabbed a map/score card from the pro shop, which made navigating the course much more manageable. Fun course

I'd like to say a big thanks to everyone for the advice and feedback. I was able to land, visit white river and lakewood dgc, then caught a flight out. Reviews upcoming shortly.
