After 33 years, Island Greens in Clinton will no longer be available for local golfers.

It’s the final round for one of Whidbey Island’s unsung sports gems.

Island Greens, a nine-hole golf course which has operated in Clinton since 1987, has been sold, and the new owners are planning to close down operations.

The news came via an announcement on the business’s Facebook page Thursday:

We regret to inform our community that Island Greens has sold.

From what we know the new owners are not going to keep the golf course operational.

Island Greens will lock up the gate at the end of the day on the 23 of August.

We would like to thank the people who supported the golf course and we wish you all the best.

Any questions you might have call 360-579-6042.

Island Greens offers the only public driving range on South Whidbey, and the nine-hole course, a fun, and challenging series of par-threes, operates dawn to dusk, with payments taken on the honor system.

Back in my Videoville days, there were several of us who golfed, and I played the course numerous times, always enjoying it.

Their Facebook page put it best:

Huge majestic trees, winding hills, ponds, wet lands and wild life.

Island Greens is known for its challenging nature. Narrow fairways and small greens challenge the advanced golfer as well as the beginner.

Perfect for working on your short game or just coming out to enjoy nature at its finest.

Island Greens is about having fun.

It will be missed.
