Apple Tree Golf Course - Yakima, WA
Designed by John Steidel in 1992, Apple Tree's 6900 yards wind through Yakima Valley's 100 year old apple orchards. After taking a brief detour on the back nine through a housing development, the course finds it's way back to the orchards and the course's signature hole. It is the 17th hole that gives the course it's name and receives all of the attention.
Hole #17 is a medium length par 3 that plays downhill to an island green shaped like an apple. Other than the water, you will want to be wary of the apple leaf as it is actually a bunker. I hit a poor tee shit into the drink and almost holed out my second attempt for a Freddy Couples style par. Overall, a fun round of golf.
