Walla Walla, tucked in Washington State’s southeast corner, is often known for its famed onion, but it’s also a destination for wine and golf-lovers thanks to its climate, the one-of-a-kind Wine Valley Golf Club, and the more than 20 wine tasting rooms within walking distance of the luxurious Marcus Whitman Hotel.
Designed by Dan Hixson, Wine Valley Golf Club is often referred to as a “Challenging Romp in the Prairie.” With many fast undulations, this stunning course offers multiple lines of play on every hole and gives players the best view on the course from the 18th tee.
The Marcus Whitman Hotel, which is a true Walla Walla landmark, offers a golf package, which allows golfers to relax after a day on the green in luxury. The package includes:
- One night’s accommodations in the comfort of a luxury suite in the Historic Tower or deluxe accommodations in the West Wing
- One round of golf at Wine Valley Golf course
- Complimentary cart rental with two paid rounds
- A well drink or a non-alcoholic beverage in The Vineyard Lounge, located at The Marcus Whitman Hotel
- Walla Walla is a down-to-earth city filled with blocks of charming, beautifully restored 19th-century brick buildings, and is home to more than 130 wineries. While it’s best known for its Bordeaux varietals, the region’s white wine offerings may be some of the best kept secrets in Washington.
The Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center is a Walla Walla landmark and storied gathering place for the local community and visitors alike. Anchoring historic downtown Walla Walla, the Marcus Whitman Hotel includes a luxury hotel, expansive modern conference center, six on-site wine tasting rooms, and the Marc Restaurant, a nationally recognized and award-winning restaurant and casual wine lounge, all set to a sophisticated old-world backdrop. The Marc Restaurant is known for innovative wine pairings, unforgettable culinary delights and serves local, organic and sustainable cuisine. The extensive wine list focuses primarily on local vineyards and producers and is unmatched in varietals, styles, and quality.
Built as a labor of love by the community in 1928, the Marcus Whitman Hotel – named in honor of an early missionary who helped establish the region – was the height of fashion and the heart of the community spirit for many decades. The tallest building in town, it served as the gathering place in the Walla Walla Valley. Throughout its history, the hotel has hosted prominent guests, including President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, among many other visiting dignitaries and celebrities of the time.
