Dear Neighbor of Lake Wilderness Golf Course,

As we enter Spring, play at Lake Wilderness Golf Course (LWGC) will increase as warmer weather brings the golf season into full bloom. We want to take this opportunity to share some information with you about access and proper use of the Course. Over the past few years we have seen a number of new neighbors move in and around the golf course. As this has happened, we are experiencing an increase in residents coming onto the course to do various activities. These activities, while seeming harmless, actually put individuals in harm’s way. It is important to remember that while you are homeowners of property that borders LWGC, it is a “daily fee” facility that requires a fee to be on the Course. This access is also limited to only golfers. We want to be good neighbors and keep your experience as home owners as it should be. We ask that you respect the Golf Course by limiting your access to the Course to playing golf. We will also be working to improve signage in and around the Course.

Below are some of the activities that are not allowed on LWGC property:

  • Walking, Jogging or Bicycling
  • Walking dogs (including playing catch, fetch, or other)
  • Any type of non-golf sports activity (baseball, football, soccer, frisbee, etc.)
  • Use of any motorized or electric vehicle (motorcycles, go karts, etc.)
  • Use of a drone or radio controlled vehicle (cars, planes, helicopters)
  • Playing or practicing golf without checking in at the Pro Shop to pay appropriate fee

Please note that non-golfers using the Course for any activity puts them at risk of bodily harm, creates a safety and liability issue as golfers may not be able to see the non-golfer while playing, and can damage the facility.

In closing we ask each of you to help us keep the golf course safe by reporting anything out of the ordinary immediately to the staff in the Pro Shop by calling 425-432-9405 x223. With over 100 acres of property to look out for it is a difficult task to see everything happening on the course at all times. Your help in reporting would be much appreciated.

Thank You,
Lake Wilderness Golf Course Management
City of Maple Valley
