Lummi Nation Announces Purchase of Loomis Trail Golf Course in Blaine

The Lummi Nation announces the acquisition of the crown jewel of the Washington golfing community, Loomis Trail Golf Course. The Lummi Nation is excited to acquire this land and will take the formerly private course and open it to the entire golfing public as a public course. “This is much more than a golf course. Loomis Trail land holding is within our St’l’elnep our ancient ground or village,” said Chariman Julius. “Loomis Trail, Dakota Creek, California Creek and the surrounding areas were very important to our ancestors, and therefore they are very important to the history of our people. Acquiring 180 acres of our St’l’elenp is something that we can all be proud of, on behalf of our past, present and future Lummi people." Loomis Trail Golf Club is the #5 public golf course in Washington, according to Golf Week Magazine. It is also the only course in Washington State to make the nation's Top 100 list. Loomis Trail was the host of the 2016 U.S. Amateur Qualification as well as the qualification for the 2015 U.S. Senior Open. The addition of Loomis Trail elevates Silver Reef as Washington’s premier destination Casino Resort. The golf course compliments perfectly the resort atmosphere Silver Reef is proud to offer. “We want to make Loomis Trail available for everyone to enjoy, so starting today the course will be open to the public every day. With Silver Reef having access to  Loomis Trail, our team will look to host local and regional tournament and fund raising events. As well as utilizing their banquet space and outdoor wedding venue," said Rita Jefferson, Chief Operating Officer. Owned by the Lummi Nation in Washington, Silver Reef Hotel Casino Spa is a complete destination with 206 luxurious guest rooms and suites, a full-service spa, seven dining options, including the award-winning Steak House, and 40,000 square-feet of meeting space.
