Semiahmoo Real Estate Specialist
Native Americans have roamed, lived and fished the coastal waters of Western Washington and British Columbia for at least 10,000 years. The name “Semiahmoo” translates as “half-moon,” a term that perfectly describes the curving coastline of the beautiful bay.
Semiahmoo real estate includes luxurious waterfront estates with sweeping views of the bay and San Juan Islands, as well as surrounding white-capped mountains. Condos can be found tucked into forested areas and right on the beach. Families, retirees and golfers alike will find Northwest Coastal living at its best in Semiahmoo.
Semiahmoo is located about 30 miles north of Bellingham, between Blaine and Birch Bay, on Drayton Harbor. Semiahmoo Resort is built on the site of a historic salmon-packing cannery. Salmon were packed here until 1965 and labeling of packed salmon continued until 1974.
Integrating the existing structure into its building design, Semiahmoo Resort opened its doors in 1987 as Washington’s largest full-service destination resort. The Semiahmoo Golf Course, designed by Arnold Palmer, opened a year earlier in 1986 and is a three-time recipient of the Golf Magazine Silver Award for Best Golf Resorts in America. It was also rated the number one public course in Washington by Golf Digest Magazine in its May 2003 issue.

Loomis Trail Golf Course was designed by Graham Cooke and is the #1 public golf course in Washington as rated by Golf Digest, 2005. It’s also the only course in Washington state to make the nation’s Top 100. Constructed with the Northwest in mind, Loomis Trail is at the top of the list for year-round play. The scenic beauty is unsurpassed, and the consistently smooth, fast, and true greens put Loomis trail among the Northwest’s elite courses. An extensive canal and lake system brings water into play on all 18 holes, giving Loomis Trail one of the highest slope ratings in the state of Washington. The course is open to the public on even days of the month.
The spacious Tudor-style clubhouse offers a full range of services including a Pro Shop, full-service lounge, snack bar and banquet facilities.
Designed by Arnold Palmer, Semiahmoo Golf & Country Club is Washington’s #3 public course as rated by Golf Digest, 2005. This tree-lined masterpiece allows you to relax and enjoy nature at its best. The golfing challenge is second to none, with water in play on five holes and 67 strategically placed bunkers. The fairways are rolling and generous, with fast and challenging greens. Tee box placements adjust the degree of difficulty to make the course playable for golfers of all skill levels, yet at 7,005 yards from the tips, this course challenges even tour players. Semiahmoo is open to the public on odd days of the month.
The Semiahmoo Golf Course offers a driving range and putting and chipping greens.
