Course of the Week: Landscapes Unlimited and Rees Jones complete enhancements at Sahalee CC

By |  April 6, 2023 0 Comments

In collaboration with Rees Jones Inc., Landscapes Unlimited recently completed enhancements on the nine-hole North, South and East Courses at Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish, Wash. The courses range from 5,712 to 7,003 yards and are heavily forested.

Sahalee — a Ted Robinson design — opened in 1969 and saw renovations from Jones from 1996 to 1998.

“Sahalee is a Pacific Northwest treasure,” Jake Riekstins, chief development officer of Landscapes Unlimited, said. “Any time there’s an opportunity to smartly add modern infrastructure to a storied golf course while achieving a golden age style, the results are ‘wow’ experiences for different generations.”

Primary enhancements made to the courses include:

  • Improved shapes, sizes, locations and depths of the bunkers
  • The installation of new drainage
  • New modern liners and bunker sand

“It has been a pleasure working with Landscapes Unlimited on the renovation at Sahalee Country Club,” said Rees Jones, president of Rees Jones Inc. “Its craftsmanship is first class, and the final results are quite stunning.”
