Fun Jaunt in the Evergreens
Pros: This course resides underneath a massive canopy of fir trees. The layout for the 9 hole course is short and a mix of fairly open fairways, but has 4 sharp doglegs. Nearly all the holes are aceable which really adds to the fun. The huge trees will keep you dry in the rain too. I played with a couple of nice locals who became very useful in finding hole #6 (see cons below). The tee pads are gritty brick tile that are well constructed, mildly sloped for drainage, and decent overall.
Cons: The course can get quite crowded in the afternoons, and having an extra nine holes would sure help alleviate this. The flow is quite good until you try to find #6 tee. It must be a quarter mile walk down the other road in the park, and it's unsigned. If I hadn't been playing with locals, this would have really put a dent in my attitude. So, the course could really use some "next tee" signs and some signs on the teepads. The local club does not post maps on the website- this is badly needed!
Other Thoughts: Overall, I found this an enjoyable layout and would reccomend it if you are in Bellingham. Go early in the day or when it's raining to try and avoid crowds.

Pros: This course is set in a very nice park with tall evergreens in a well groomed park. The locals are friendly and will point you in the right direction. Tee pads are in great shape and give plenty of room. A nice mixture of open and blocked pins
Cons: No real distance to air it out on this course as said before. This course is only 9 holes it would be nice if there were alt tee pads to at least make 18. The traffic can be heavy, but still acceptable park is well used by all people.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for a beginner or to take the family and play a round. There is no real elevation changes and should be a fun outing for everyone.

Family friendly fun time
Pros: Family friendly course. Well kept park with no trash or vandalism and friendly locals make it a positive experience. On a blistering hot day there is enough shade to keep you cool which is a plus. The park is just off the freeway but when you are there you feel quite secluded. Excellent tee pads, all of them are concrete and are wide and long enough to accommodate the longest run up. Good mix of left handed and right handed shots.
Cons: There are no holes to air it out on and most of the holes will be a birdie, even if your tee shot is way off line or short you can usually still get par. Holes 1 through 5 are pretty straight forward but the last 4 holes are a walk to get to and there are no signs on this course at all so I had to ask a local where the other holes were. The park is large enough to make it 18 holes instead of 9. Go early on in the day, especially during the weekend as this course gets busy to the point you will have to wait for three or fours groups on each tee pad.
Other Thoughts: My first time coming to Cornwall was at about six thirty in the morning and as I was parking there was a doe and her babies 50 feet from me, that was amazing! I wouldn't drive out of my way but if you are in the area you should throw a round or two with the family, I did and had a good time.

Short, Fun, yet challenging
Pros: Cornwall has a nice layout, heavily wooded holes add a challenge to otherwise short distances. Great for beginners, families, a quick round or a confidence booster. I've played here hundreds of times and still enjoy it.
Cons: As has been mentioned, not a lot of distance or elevation.
No signage can confuse first time players, but locals will help out.
Course can get very crowded w/ families, strollers, beginners, dogs, etc... on weekends.

Pros: This course is laid out in a beautiful park. Although short, some of the holes are well done. Baskets and tee pads are in great shape. Some pins are guarded, while for the most part the others are wide open. This is a great course if you are looking on improving your short game. You could get away with bringing a roc and a putter and still end up well under par. The locals are friendly and the city of Bellingham is inviting. Very close to Mossy Roc.
Cons: The course is way too small for being in such a glorious place like Bellingham. Coming from Santa Cruz, CA. I expected something similar to De La Veaga. However, Mossy Rock ( in south bellingham / Sudden Valley) is well on its way to becomming the best course on the western side of Washington.
Other Thoughts: This course is great when looking to feel better about yourself. It is fun for kids and those who don't usually get out to play. I enjoy playing on this course everytime, with hopes of an ace on every hole!
Each year WCDGC hosts the Cornwall Classic, where they add an additional 9 to 18 holes to the original layout. This tournament makes the course much more challenging and fun.

I Love This Little Pitch & Putt!
Pros: The course is located in a lovely little, shaded city park with tall evergreens trees everywhere. Although distances are very short, with only one hole longer than 220 feet, the holes are challenging enough to keep it interesting. It's an awesome course for the beginning or youth player. The question is, Can you shoot 10 under? 12 under? I found it to be an absolute delight. It's located just a couple blocks off an I-5 Bellingham exit so that makes for easy access. If you're driving from Seattle to Vancouver, BC, stop and play a couple rounds. It only takes about 30 minutes.
Cons: It's a pitch and putt. There's no holes for those big arm types. There's no water hazards. There's no elevation to speak of. Everyone shoots like a Tiger Woods on this course!
Other Thoughts: It won't be holding any state or national tournies. You wouldn't want it for your home course.....but I'd love to move it across the street from my house.
