Bayshore Golf Course, a 9-hole public course on Puget Sound outside Shelton, will close for good at the end of December.
Bayshore Golf Course, a nine-hole public course on Puget Sound outside Shelton, will close for good at the end of December.
“We just can’t afford to run it any more,” said Brian Davis, a part-owner. He blamed the economy and oversaturation of courses for Bayshore’s decline.
“We’ve tried every marketing tactic we could think of,” Davis said.
Bayshore opened in 1948.
In September, Flowing Lake Golf Course and Sumner Meadows Golf Course outside Sumner both closed.
Bayshore becomes the 15th golf course in the Greater Puget Sound region to close in the past four years. Two — Holmes Harbor on Whidbey Island and Carnation (now Blue Heron Golf Course) — have reopened.
The Swinomish Tribe has purchased the 18-hole Similk Beach Golf Course near Anacortes from the Morgan-Turner family. It will remain a daily-fee golf course.
