    Course History

The course was under construction prior to 1969. At that time the only house on the course was that of Sid Anderson who was with the Lake Cushman Maintenance Company and supervising the course construction.
Sid also handled the day to day maintenance of the course until those duties were assumed by Brad Brush. Brad passed away in 1996. Our current superintendent, Ken McIntosh took over in 2000.
As the course developed, a driving range was added. It is said by the "old-timers" you would have to run out and shag your own balls from the field. Our range facility now has 9 stations and plenty of balls.
In the early days elk frequently visited the course in the mornings and evenings. They have since moved deeper into the mountains. We still have a variety of wildlife visitors even today.
This is one of our most popular holes over the years. Par for the course was 70 then, but later changes were made making it a par 72. The official course record belongs to Mike Wog Jr. – a 64 shot in 2005.
Over the years, additions and improvements have included numerous buildings, maintenance facilities, a putting green, an event gazebo, and golf cart storage spaces. Currently, the cart path is being paved.
There have been many improvements to the clubhouse over the years. There is a beautiful deck to enjoy your beverage while overlooking the putting green. See our Pro Shop page for our products!

The popularity of the Lake Cushman Golf Course for sponsored tournaments has increased steadily over the years as golfers have become aware of this course, its fine condition and its challenges. It is often said this course is "one of the best kept secrets" in Washington State golfing circles.
