SEATTLE — It is a rare golf course where it's perfectly acceptable to tee off in bare feet, but such is the case at Greenlake Pitch & Putt in Seattle.
"This is probably the best par 3 course in the country," says Bud Fenstermaker. This soon-to-be 90-year-old's played here with Bill Tharrington every week for more than a decade.
Many mistake it for a mini-golf course. But it's a legit, par-3 track where all you need is a pitching wedge and a putter.
It is a rare place where kids, seniors and everybody in between all play together.
Dione Taitch has been around the place since she was 9. Her family's run the 6-acre course tucked along the southeast corner of Green Lake for more than 30 years.
Most days you'll share your round with the course dog Missy. You can play the full 9 in about an hour.
It takes Bud a little longer, he says. But he does have two holes in one here!
"It's the customers that have come back that we've developed relationships with that are really what makes my heart happy," said Bud.
