In recent years, the greater Seattle area has become a popular destination for golfing, with many new and updated golf courses available to enjoy for visitors based in Seattle. In fact, one of the world’s most famous golf tournaments, The U.S. Open Championship, was held last month at Chambers Bay Golf Course, just south of Seattle.
A day at one of the beautiful, high-end golf courses in the region is a great addition to a Seattle incentive trip. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the spectacular setting and world-class design of the courses, and everyone can enjoy the fantastic array of event spaces available at these exclusive clubs.
Here are some examples of some of the special touches that can be added to a golf course event as part of a group incentive:
– Private Golf Tournament as a team building event or just some fun, friendly competition
– Golf-themed welcome gifts for guests
– Pre-stocked golf carts or complimentary beverage service on the greens
– Outdoor cookout with views over the course, or more formal dinner event within the clubhouse space
All located within a close proximity to Seattle, these golf courses are among our top picks for places to tee-off and toast the best of the Pacific Northwest.
