I am going to Seattle for a work trip with a colleague that also plays and we want to sneak in a round.

Where should we try and get a tee time?

I've played a few rounds in the Seattle area. The obvious choice is Chambers Bay in Tacoma. I also enjoyed the Olympic Course and Salish Cliffs is outstanding. Washington National is good. I've only played Coal Creek at New Castle, but that's an outstanding experience, more of a high end course.

There are great views at The Golf Club of Newcastle, particularly the Coal Creek Course, if the weather is good.  West Seattle and Jackson Park are popular City of Seattle public courses, less upscale.

I've played Chambers Bay, the Home Course, Gold Mountain (Olympic), White Horse, Salish Cliffs, McCormick Woods, Port Ludlow, Newcastle (China Creek), Trophy Lake, Aldarra, & Sahalee (north / south).

If you're from out of town & not sure when you'll be back in the Northwest, I think you have to play Chambers, despite the dicey greens & high cost.  It's an interesting routing, & a rare thing: a links course in a US metropolitan area.

Beware of our road construction, and the usual traffic jam during commute hours.  Of course, check the weather forecast because a wet and muddy condition is always with us during these months.  Some golf courses are drier, but you'll not find pristine condition.  

It really depending on where you'll be staying and how much time you will have for golf.  Chambers Bay is one of the choice, it's walking only, no golf cart allowed.  No matter ho fast you play, allow for at least 4 1/2 hour, there are some elevation changes for several holes which will slow down almost any golfer.  Plus the I-5 construction near and around Tacoma will make any golfer think twice before venture through the traffic to get there from Seattle.
We had a tee time yesterday for the McCormick Woods not that far from the Chambers Bay and we had to cancel it because two in the group refused to spend 3 + hours on the road to play golf.  We ended up going East to a short scenic golf course half way up the path and near shopping and Casino.
Can't really recommend any golf course around here in the Winter months.

Aldarra, Sahalee, Chambers, Home Course, and Gold Mountain are all fun courses.

Taking the ferry to Bremerton and playing Gold Mountain may be more desirable to driving back and forth on I-5 to play Chambers or the Home Course.  How soon are you talking about being here?
