Prospector Golf Course - Cle Elum, WA
Prospector Golf Course at Suncadia in Cle Elum is an Arnold Palmer design that opened in 2005. Even though the course winds through the forest, I found it to be forgiving off of the tee. The real challenge is with your approach shots. A miss in the wrong spot and you will struggle to save par. The signature hole is the par 4 10th, a downhill par 4 that really stands out visually from the rest of the course. There are plenty of pictures of this beauty in the gallery.
Even with 20-30 mph winds, I still enjoyed my round on the Prospector Course. I set a personal record for most birdie putts that lipped out in a single round with 6. However, I did get one birdie to lip in. I played a pretty consistent round and was able to rebound from a couple tough streaks with strings of solid pars.
