About the Course
Fort Washington Golf and Country Club began operations in 1923 as a 9 hole course with dirt fairways and sand greens. Its original design was the work of Mr. William Watson. The name Fort Washington was inspired by the area’s military fort of the early pioneers and settlers.
Our Director of Golf, Mr. Alan Ehnes has been affiliated with the club since 1984 and has been a golf professional since 1994.

A great starting hole! Bunker right, bunker left with out of bounds all the way down the right side demands a straight drive. Lay up or go for it in two. Then finish on a large undulating but bunker protected green. A very makable birdie.
This is a challenging par four. OB right which also presents large Eucalyptus trees and 2 bunkers on the left side demand a straight drive. A good drive leaves a long second shot with OB right again, trees and bunker left.
A relatively short 3 par featuring a beautiful green framed in a cluster of mature trees. The hole is also protected by bunkers.
More OB right…the entire length of the fairway. Tough for most to reach in 2, this 443 yard par 4 features a large green that is unobstructed.
A dynamic 4 par with a severe downhill, dogleg left. The left side of the fairway just before the drop is guarded with a large Eucalyptus. Place your drive in the valley between 100 and 150 yards to leave a challenging approach shot over a relatively severe bunker depending upon pin placement.
The # 1 rated handicap hole from the white tees…this hole will challenge golfers at every level. More OB right with more large trees…a big drive gives you a nice shot at a deceivingly sloped green.
Approximately 200 yards from tee to green from the men’s tees with a severe elevation drop, this hole is forgiving on the left but penalizing on the right. The green is large and plays true.
A beautiful hole featuring a slight dogleg right and mature, large palms providing a picturesque backdrop to a large green. A good drive slightly left of center and a good approach shot can only help your score.
A 484 par 5 with estate homes on the right, a significant dip in the fairway off the tee, again at 250 yards out and one more with a dogleg right to a difficult green…stay below the hole on your approach shot.
A chance to unload a big drive with a straight shot to the green which is slightly pitched and open in the center.
Eleven is illusive…what seems like a simple 3 par can quickly turn into a bogey or worse. Large Eucalyptus off the left side of the green with traps both right and left make this one tougher than at first glance.
A big drive will give you a chance at reaching in two if you are straight long. A few sand traps both right and left could penalize an errant drive. This is a tough 5 for most!
Stay straight and you won’t have problems here. A good drive places you atop a slight perch with the chance to stick your approach on the pin. Go to far right and you are in the Eucalyptus…short means sand wedge.
Our signature hole, 14 is a challenge offering a great view of the clubhouse and pond with water feature. The hole lays out fairly simply but stay center or left center to keep clear of the large Eucalyptus. Don’t come up short and left or dig out another ball.
Fifteen offers a perched tee box with a connecting pond directly off the tee. Large redwoods protect the right side so stay straight. On your approach the green is significantly elevated. The green drops off from back to front but is relatively generous in size.
This long 5 par features water left off the tee, large Eucalyptus right, a severe dip from your drive to your second shot, an ascending approach and a tough green. Play for your 3rd shot and a par is in the bag.
A 3 par straight away with bunkers left, right and center. The left side of the green falls off to a large slope which is trouble.
A great finishing hole…alternating elevated tee and a descending fairway which is well protected on both sides by large Eucalyptus. To hit this green, stay straight and use plenty of club. The entry driveway is OB right.
