Apple Tree Golf Course & Tee Times If you find yourself in Yakima, WA, skip the casinos and head for the golf course. One of my best friends is from Yakima, and he took me out to Apple Tree for my first time. It was quite a treat.

The first thing that caught my eye was how green the golf course was. Most of Yakima isn't that pleasing to the eye (sorry Yakiminians!) Apple Tree is like an oasis in the desert.

The elegant clubhouse sits on a hill, and you can see a lot of the golf course below you as you check in. You will notice the huge sand trap that is shaped like an apple and is filled with red sand. This bunker is one of the biggest bunkers I have ever seen and is built into the side of a huge hill. If you happen to find it, you will be hitting your next shot from an uphill lie to a green that is fifty feet above you.

The course is fairly easy but very dynamic. There is a huge fountain or waterfall on the front nine that looks like it should be on one of Donald Trump's golf courses. It is pretty but seems a bit out of place here.

The real claim to fame is the 17th island green. Your tee shot is hit off of an elevated tee about a hundred feet above this apple-shaped green. The green is huge, so you shouldn't have much trouble hitting it as long as you club down a few clubs to compensate for the change in elevation.
