Suncadia Resort Roperider Course - Cle Elum, WA

The Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, WA features 3 golf courses.  The Roperider Course, the Prospector course, and the private Tumble Creek.  The Roperider course is shown here.  When the course opened in 2011, it was named the Best New Course of the Year by Golf Magazine.  Built on the site of the historic Roslyn mines, the course is named in honor of the miners who balanced themselves on the roped coal cars that navigated the mine shafts.

After my round, I was able to ascend Tipple Hill, which is a 120 foot coal tailings rise to get some cool shots of the front 9.  On the hill, I ran into Berta, a little Westie, and a big golf fan.
