One of The Most Dramatic Settings for True Links Golf in The World.

Gamble Sands - Brewster, WA

Spectacular Location

In 2014, golf course designer, David McLay Kidd (a well-known Scottish-born designer best known for doing the original course at Bandon Dunes on the Oregon Coast) took a lifelong dream of his and made it a reality with the launch of the Sands course.  Overlooking  the Columbia River, in the high desert of North Central Washington, Gamble Sands is blessed with one of the most dramatic settings for true links golf in the world.  Honored by Cascade Golfer as 2017 Best Public Golf Course in Washington.

The Course was named in honor of the first settlers (the Gambles) of the land of what is now a fifth generation family that arrived in Okanogan County in the 1800s. The par-72 course is located 30 miles northeast of Lake Chelan and around a 3.5 hour drive from Seattle, WA.

Fresh Food Dining & Drinks with a View

At Gamble Sands, world-class golf is accompanied by all of the lifestyle attractions that naturally complement the game such as the Danny Boy Bar & Grill where fresh, locally sourced fare fills the menu. Raised on fresh fare harvested on-property and throughout the communities of Central Washington, taking pride in serving the same locally sourced food and drink at Gamble Sands. Fresh-baked bread, juicy just-picked produce and savory beef from our own Gebbers Cattle brand are just a few down-home delicacies on the menu.

Same goes for our beverages- local craft beer and wine from nearby vineyards fill the menu. As a year-round destination, many of the dishes feature the ripeness of seasonal flavors. Danny Boy Bar and Grill is a gathering place for golfers and casual diners alike. Large garage-style doors roll open to reveal the golf course and practice green in the foreground as well as views of the Cascades and Columbia River Valley on the horizon.

Inn at Gamble Sands

The Inn at Gamble Sands allows you to stay-and-play in the same spectacular location that makes the golf course so special.  The inn was designed with you in mind. The lodging was created to provide the same spectacular experience that was comfortable and memorable as the golf course.

The spacious accommodations and relaxing spaces sprinkled throughout the Inn provide a renewing respite for those seeking peace and quiet, while still encouraging exploration of the many refreshing outdoor attractions found in this unique corner of Washington, including world-class golf.  It is the confluence of tranquil internal privacy and lively exterior community that truly separates The Inn at Gamble Sands from all others.

The Inn’s oversized rooms perfectly match the wide-open nature of Gamble Sands – big rooms open to the big golf course, framed by even bigger views that sweep across the Columbia River Valley.  The sheer scale of this special place lies at the heart of its charm, something that certainly appeals to golfers and non-golfers alike.

  1. Question. I played there this past year as I own a condo in Chelan. Where exactly is your resort. Didn’t see anything around as did none of my playing partners. We were all wondering? You guys also need to post better course layout signage.


  2. Hello Steve,

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are consistently reviewing our course signage to ensure that our customers are appropriately directed, while trying to maintain the look and the feel of our true links golf experience here at Gamble Sands. I will be sure to bring this up accordingly during our next staff meeting. Regarding our resort, we do currently operate our 37 room Inn at Gamble Sands located just to the South of our Golf Shop and parking area, and home to the Cascades, our 100,000 square foot putting course and future development should see additional amenities and activities coming online as we move forward into the future. Our apologies that the existing signage was not readily recognizable during your last visit. We hope to see you again soon here at the resort and it is feedback like yours that helps us better serve our customers!
