I am a scratch golfer and have my regular buddies that tour around and play western washington golf courses. I have played Snohomish GC a bunch of times only because one of my buddies lives in Snoho .The greens have improved in the past 2 years, and they roll really well. But they are on the slower side. Despite the observation, I really enjoy the layout of the course and once you get golfing, you are isolated and its enjoyable. They offer a nice sized range and a pretty good practice facility, including 2 practice greens and a separate chipping green. The problem with this course is the management. The pro-shop is a remodeled mobile home. The course has potential but lacks the motivation by the Director Fred Jacobson. He often works the register. It is not a eloquent course or experience. Mr. Jacobson ruins my experience every time. I was on the range, and his dog was roaming the fairways, the dog relieved himself right next to my bag. After that Mr.Jacobson, (who always looks like he just got back from a hunting trip) yells across 3 holes for his dog. Talk about golf etiquette. Mr.Jacobson makes you feel like he is doing you a favor coming to his golf course. He is rude, stuck up and ruins the mood whenever crossing his path. What would be expected is a great full experience from any golf course. That what golfers pay for, the experience. He obviously takes no interest in improving the golf course. The course feels like you are going to his backyard, with his personal things in the background, and greedy to hoard your money without putting it to good use. I took a lesson with him, and was poorly disappointed by a hunter and his dog giving the same quality advice as his persona. The golf carts suck. Simple as that. Slow and old gas carts. The food in the cafe is pretty solid.John Brandvold is a great head pro who is a very compassionate golfer and is great to talk to. I feel bad that he is stuck with Mr. Jacobson and the Snohomish Golf Course. He deserves to be at a higher class GC, a country club. I always enjoy talking to him, he is very down to earth. Great man. (Also, at least he treats you as a paying customer and tries to make it worth wild, unlike Mr. Jacobson)That being said, if you pay for pure golf, and not the experience then its okay. I would recommend driving the extra distance to find a course you like and probably for the same amount of money.
