Default Overrated West Coast Courses

I saw the thread of the overrated east coast courses and I thought I would start one for the west coast. I've only played in Oregon and Washington so I don't know much about California. Here is my top five overrated for WA and OR:

1: Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood (Tacoma) WA - Unfriendly to players who don't know the course with 14 different layouts and little signage. The land there is good but I've heard many call it the best in the state and it's not even in my top 10 for Washington.

2: Milo Mciver State Park in Estacada OR - A great course indeed but again not much signage and people play it the 27 hole layout and the 18 west/9 east layout as well, very confusing for a first timer. Anyone other than 950 and above rated players will find it frustrating.

3: Seatac DGC in Seatac WA - A very hard course and a good course, it's overrated because there really is nothing else as challenging or as good in the Seattle area.

4: Lakewood DGC in Seattle WA - 5 minutes from Seatac and a good course but it's full of people on nice days and it's hyped up a ton.

5: Whitsler's Bend in Roseburg OR - A great course but not top 5 in the country. The first 6 holes are all short and the back 3 or 4 holes are long, open and boring. It gets hyped up because of he big 'top of the world' shot.

I think that none of the courses mentioned thus far would compete with those mentioned on the east side thread. Stafford Lake is up there though and I could see an argument for Milo, but I think its only in the top 10 because its the best for this coast.

The Hornings courses are excellent but not the cream of the crop that we are talking about here.

^^^^ That is his favorite course. However, he sniffs glue so I wouldn't listen to him regarding half those courses, especially Milo. = )

With the exception of DeLa Veaga, as I know it is in your top 30 and my top 5!

I'm hoping that the timing of your post indicates that you did not read the ultimate wisdom of the preceding post before you posted your post...

and sadly, Deblah is no longer in my top 30.

Horning's are my favorite courses I've ever played. I enjoy them more than any of the almost 90 courses I have played on the west coast.
