Golfers find nirvana at “hidden” Kahler Glen

The phrase “best kept secret” may be a cliche but, in the case of the Kahler Glen Golf and Ski Resort, the description is spot on. You've probably driven past it dozens of times and you didn't even know it was there.

It's the kind of place you'll want to know is there. This 120-acre resort is carved into the tall forests near Lake Wenatchee and built in such a way that vacationers and golfers enjoy incredible views of the mountains and fairways. Even if you don't golf, Kahler Glen is special.

But if you do golf, it's nirvana. “It's a very challenging and unique mountain-type course,” explains General Manager Randy Pelton. “There are a lot of elevation changes, dog legs and a lot of water.”

No one knows the course better than Pelton, who actually designed and helped build the course with his partner, Glenn Week. The first nine holes opened in 1989, followed by the second nine in 1995. With his partner, they did all the construction work associated with building the golf course and the development. The spectacular views were all part of the plan and the golf course is a complete surprise for many Lake Wenatchee area visitors who didn't realize it was even there.

From the nearest highways, the Kahler Glen course is obscured by those tall trees. State restrictions allow only the smallest of signs along Highway 2 because the road has been designated a Scenic Highway. The net result: golfers who play Kahler Glen find an exceptional course that isn't nearly as crowded as it would be in a more visible area. For golfers, that's a good thing.

It's especially good for Wenatchee-area golfers who drive on up to Kahler Glen for a change in scenery. It's just an hour, but light years away from the congested courses in the city. Interestingly, Kahler Glen has sweetened the deal this summer, offering a day of golf at Kahler Glen for only $25 if you come up on any Wednesday. Anyone who golfs realizes that kind of pricing is almost unheard of for a quality course like Kahler Glen.
