Celebrating 100 years 1923 - 2023
Fircrest Golf Course was designed by Arthur Vernon Macan and is nearly the same today as when he designed it in 1923. Fircrest Golf Club grew out of the woods, with no homes, roads, or businesses in the area; just a parcel of land of 165 acres of wooded and rolling terrain that Macan turned into his signature course. It is a golf course that has stood the test of time and provided its members, guests, and professionals with a challenging test each time they play a round of golf.
It has been said that "if you play well at Fircrest, you could play anywhere!" That was true in July 1923, when the course opened, and it is true today. The course never plays the same way on two consecutive days and gives even the best players the opportunity to use all their skills during each round. Fircrest Golf Course is considered one of the nation's sportiest layouts. The design that A.V. Macan drafted is based on the natural movements of the existing land in the true Scottish tradition, with the undulating terrain providing a challenging opportunity for golfers at all levels. His design of multi-tiered, undulating greens was an innovation in 1923 and is as tough today as the day they were first played.
In 2020 Fircrest Golf Club was ranked #4 in Golf Magazine's Best golf courses in Washington State.
