Washington's Salish Cliffs Golf Club enjoys revenue increases

SHELTON, Wash. -- Salish Cliffs Golf Club at Little Creek Casino Resort - the award-winning course located a scenic and easy drive from Olympia and Seattle - announces that it posted significant year-to-date growth in several categories, including a 26% increase in rounds played.

Through June, total revenue at Salish Cliffs has grown by 12% year-to-date while retail sales are up 50%.
