SHELTON, Wash. -- Salish Cliffs Golf Club - the amenity course of Little Creek Casino Resort, located within an easy drive of Olympia and Seattle - cracked the top 10 of Golfweek's 2013 "Best Casino Courses" list.

The Gene Bates design scored a No. 9 placement on the annual top-50 ranking and was the lone Pacific Northwest course named to the top 10. Owned and operated by the Squaxin Island Tribe, the course adds to other recent awards, including earning the No. 3 spot on Golfweek's "America's Best Courses You Can Play" in Washington and top-10 status in Golf Digest's biennial "America's Greatest Courses" by state.

"Earning this kind of acclaim and being mentioned with some of the best-known courses and casinos in the U.S. is a true honor," says Head Golf Professional David Kass, PGA. "It's the direct result of the commitment to excellence by the Squaxin Island Tribe, Little Creek Casino Resort and the entire Salish Cliffs staff."
