Loomis Trail - Blaine, WA

Loomis Trail is one of 2 golf courses at the Semiahmoo Golf Resort in northern Washington.  The course was designed by Graham Cooke in 1992 and represents one of the more difficult tests of golf in the state of Washington.  Loomis Trail's main defense is water that comes into play on just about every hole.  The holes on the perimeter of the course offer up the most character and have a great remote atmosphere.  The course also finishes strong with a difficult stretch starting on the long par 3 16th hole and ending with the scenic approach on 18.

Fortunately, I brought my ball striking skills for my round at Loomis and I was somehow able to avoid the water all day.  Even some well struck balls will find trouble at Loomis as some of my best drives were still perilously close to finding the wet stuff.  After holing out for par on 18, I tossed my worn out Taylor Made into the pond on 18.  After chasing my ball all day, the water finally got one.
