About Fort Steilacoom Golf Course
Fort Stellacoom Golf Course has all the rolling hills, glittering water hazards, and forested groves you might expect at a golf course. It also has what you might not expect—soccer balls. That's because in addition to regular golf, the course also offers FootGolf, a combination of golf and soccer that challenges players to kick a #5 regulation soccer ball into holes measuring 21 inches in diameter. The 2,181-yard, part-71 FootGolf course includes 18 holes, which are placed closer together to account for the shorter shot distance. Otherwise, the rules are the same as in golf—players strive to reach their target in as few kicks as possible, and at the end, the player with the lowest score on their scorecard wins.
The golf course itself covers a flat parcel of terrain with a nine-hole, par 34 layout that measures a modest 2,491 yards when played from the farther of two tee options. Open fairways sparsely lined with evergreens put beginners at ease while inviting more experienced golfers to shoot for low scores, as solid drives can set up potential eagle opportunities on two short par 4s and the 440-yard, par 5 fifth hole. The relatively level setting makes the course easy to walk, though Fort Steilacoom offers golf carts for those who haven’t taught their caddy the art of the piggyback ride. Fort Steilacoom complements its course with a practice area, a snack bar, and a full-service pro shop where golfers can rent clubs.
