Oki Golf buys Port Orchard's Trophy Lake Golf & Casting

Oki Golf, a collection of premier golf clubs in Washington state, announced Thursday that it had purchased two of the state’s top public courses – Port Orchard based Trophy Lake Golf & Casting Club and Washington National Golf Club from Heritage Golf Group.

The purchase positions Oki Golf as one of the largest stakeholders in the Northwest golf industry. Washington National and Trophy Lake join Oki’s portfolio of properties in Washington state, which includes The Golf Club at Newcastle (Newcastle), The Golf Club at Echo Falls (Snohomish), The Golf Club at Hawks Prairie (Lacey), Indian Summer Golf & Country Club (Olympia), and The Plateau Club (Sammamish).

Trophy Lake Golf & Casting Club reflects two favorite Northwest pastimes — golf and fishing. The 18-hole, 7,206-yard, John Fought-designed course offers intimate views of the Olympic Range and Mount Rainier, challenging holes framed by small-growth firs and numerous water features. 

Trophy Lake also boasts two on-course lakes stocked with Kamloops (Canadian Rainbow trout), providing a one-of-a-kind fly-fishing opportunity for guests.

National Golf Club, located in Auburn, showcases an 18-hole, 7,300-yard course designed by noted course architects John Fought and Orrin Vincent. 

“Acquiring Washington National and Trophy Lake is a tremendous step for Oki Golf, both as a brand and as an industry leader in the Northwest,” said Scott Oki, founder, chairman and CEO of Oki Golf. “These two additions are a perfect fit for the Oki Golf vision. Since purchasing our first course in 1994, we’ve been committed to creating an incomparable golf experience for our guests. By having Washington National and Trophy Lake in the portfolio, we’ll be able to further enhance an ‘Oki Golf Experience’ – based on ‘best of class’ facilities, inspired customer service and exceptional value.”    

"We are proud of what we have accomplished at Washington National and Trophy Lake,” said Bob Husband, President and CEO of Heritage Golf Group. “We’re confident Oki Golf can continue the tradition of providing an exceptional golf experience."
