With awesome views and abundant greenery, The Golf Club at Newcastle is one of the prominent golf destinations in the city. The scenic landscape is defined by the spectacular merger of Lake Washington and Mount Reiner. Excellent facilities complete the experience here for golfers in the huge clubhouse, which has throughout-the-year practice facilities. A pavilion, which is a part of the club, is employed for hosting wedding receptions and banquets. Serving great food is also a reason behind their popularity, but the winner here, surely, is the splendid view.

Just south of Seattle sits this relatively short golf course about 5071 yards. Its string of modest par-four holes won't frustrate even the most inexperienced golfer. Two trickier holes and a sturdy bridge cross the Duwamish Slough on the back nine. The nearby freeway and airport make the course a little noisy. Please call the golf club for more information.
Kelsey Creek Park and Farm, a sedate 150-acre park is a favorite with kids not only for the grass, sand and slides, but also for its resident population of pigs, chickens, horses and other farm animals. Kids get up close and personal with the animals, and have the opportunity to learn about animal care. For adults, the park offers more than two miles of hiking trails, including a gravel trail ideal for walking, jogging or biking. Admission to the park is free, so bring lunch and relax at one of the picnic tables.
This 14-mile trail is a continuation of the Green River Trail.

It may not be the most beautiful ride in the world, but it is an excellent example of an urban trail and a perfect way to see the local sights. A trail map is available on the Web site.
