A course found not created

Those that know the sport recognize Tom Doak as one of the finest living golf course architects in the world. Golf Digest ranked three of his courses (Pacific Dunes at Bandon Dunes, Cape Kidnappers, and Barnbougle) among the top 50 in the world, and named his creation at Tumble Creek one of the top private courses in America.

With Tumble Creek, Tom Doak has captured the spirit of its rolling hills that flow through pine forests, along river bluffs, and across expansive meadows ringed by soaring peaks. Known as a minimalist designer, Doak “found” the course in the land and moved as little earth as possible creating this extraordinary course. The design is beautiful and elegant, yet subtle in its approach, using the native landforms as opposed to artificially sculpted shapes and gradually transitioning turf from the manicured fairway to the natural environment of the surrounding woods.

Three Above Par

As a Tumble Creek member you’ll enjoy your own private Tom Doak masterpiece, but also two courses at Suncadia: Prospector and Rope Rider. Each experience is unique, with different terrain and view planes that make for an always invigorating golf experience.


18 holes of gorgeous mountain golf, with rolling, well-bunkered fairways, fast greens, and plenty of risk/reward challenges for golfers of all abilities.

Rope Rider

Beautiful Jacobsen Hardy course tests experienced golfers with more than 7,300 yards of classic Washington State golf, it also offers family-friendly options, with youth tees on every hole and a three hole short course golf park.

Tumble Creek

Your home course, a private club behind the community gates course designed by famed golf course designer Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design.


So welcoming you may have to be coaxed to leave the couch! The Golf Shop has the feel of a warm and inviting living room, complete with a patio overlooking Hole #18 and the surrounding mountains, full bar, and quaint retail experience. The Grille is a display kitchen serving breakfast and lunch. With this fantastic setting, and a talented culinary team, the many tournament banquets and festivities are always special and absolutely memorable, even if the scores are not.

No tee time? No problem.

The golf club is private, reserved exclusively for Tumble Creek members. There is no tee sheet … no reservations are ever required. We see to it that when you arrive, the tee is yours.
