Tacoma area aerial photography of American Lake, north shore
This is a very detailed aerial photography databank for the Tacoma area. American Lake's north shore is under Steilacoom NW and Tacoma SW images (about 35-40 MB each) with zooming very close in onto building and golf courses. The Tacoma G & CC is north of the northern shore of American Lake (oriented east west) about a half a mile at the top left of the Steilacoom NW images and the bottom right of the Tacoma SW image. The greatest part of the course, including the clubhouse and parking lot, is in the Tacoma SW image.
