Olympia Country & Golf Club’s Game Room is for the Young and Young at Heart


In movies, golf and country clubs are too often presented as stuffy retreats where golfers puffing cigars do nothing but play 18 holes before relaxing over a three-martini lunch. But at Olympia Country & Golf Club (OCGC) nothing could be further from the truth. Sure, they’re home to a top-tier championship green sprawling over an emerald 6200-yard course but that’s just one draw. This family-friendly destination spot in Olympia also offers 5-star dining; fitness classes; pickleball tournaments; an outdoor pool; stunning water and mountain views; and a fully stocked game room that’s perfect for your next party, hang-out or get-together.

Enjoy Swimming at Olympia Country & Golf Club

After you’ve eaten – and taken a few minutes to digest maybe out on the patio enjoying the stunning views – it’s time for swimming or basking poolside. Overlooking Budd Inlet, the Club’s outdoor pool is open from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on that classic summer schedule: Memorial Day through Labor Day. OCGC’s pool is one of only three non-residential pools in the county and the ideal way to cool down when temps rise.

For the true water bug, OCGC has a private dock and waterfront beach. Arrive in style with your boat for a day full of fun or call 360.350.0929 and order to-go treats from Terrace on the Green.
