Rainbow Run at Willows Run Golf Course

Part of the larger Willows Run course, this super fun putt putt spot is summed up perfectly on their website:  “Journey with us if you dare…through this wilderness retreat of eagle, coyote, cougar and bear. Where along the way you’re sure to find…hazards and rewards of a most peculiar kind. But if you please, stay on the trail without delay…else you may hear a grumpy bear growling, “Fowl Play!”

The course delights golfers with water features, a bear cave, and PNW-inspired putting greens. Hit up the snack bar for post-putt ice cream.
