Ah, yes golf.. the world’s most difficult and frustrating sport in the world. However, I may be biased since I’m not very good at the game. Sure it can be challenging, but it’s fun to play.
I know many Central Washington University students who play the game, however they didn’t realize there was a course only a few miles away from campus in Ellensburg, Wash.
The Ellensburg Golf Course is a fantastic nine-hole course located on the other side of I90 (opposite from CWU). It provides locals an affordable option to enjoy a morning, afternoon or evening of golf with friends and family.
Struggle with your game? No problem! EGC has a practice putting green and a driving range to help figure out your mechanics.
Personally I’ve been to multiple golf courses around the state and EGC is a wonderful place to visit. For the college student looking to do something fun while on a budget, it’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon drinking a beer.. or two with some friends.

Although the golf course is only nine holes, you can still play a full 18. You might ask, “well Danny that’s no fun playing the same holes again.” Well, have you thought about your score on the back nine? The opportunity for a better score on the back nine is greater because of the previous practice on the front nine.
So, whether you’re visiting Ellensburg, a college student or a local trying to work on your golf game, EGC is a great place to get a round of golf in.
Next time you’re thinking about something to do on a nice day, head to the golf course with some friends, buy a couple beers and enjoy the worlds most frustrating game!
