The Glendale Golf & Country Club was established by Seattle’s Jewish community in 1924. It was built as a 9 hole / 18 tee golf course by one of the Pacific Northwest’s most prolific golf course designers of the day, Arthur Vernon Macon. His designs include Broadmoor and Inglewood in Seattle, Fircrest in Tacoma, Royal Colwood in Victoria, and Alderwood in Portland. He was elected to the Pacific Northwest Golf Association Hall of Fame in 1989. He promoted the idea that players should think their way through a round of golf. His unique herringbone drainage systems eliminated the accumulation of water around, on, and under the putting surfaces.
