Played here 8/25 as a part of a 3 course tour of the greater Portland area with GK member Kassper7 on a warm and humid Oregon day, with a 1pm tee time. First time playing here after hearing good things (pre-LIV) and some recommendations from locals. I must say even with somewhat tempered expectations, this place somehow fell short. It may have been their lack of attention to detail, the fact they didn't seem too focused on the customer, or the fact it didn't have the wow factor expected with professional players choosing to stop here this year, but I felt there are far better options in Norther OR.
Tees: Good shape (whites played today). Odds are the blues weren't in better shape since most males chose to play here, but nothing terrible about the whites.
Fairways: Good to great shape. No bad lies. Visually they are browning in many places, but roll and turf was still good.
Rough: Penal in many areas. Wayward shots are indeed punished in many areas.
Sand: Good shape. Sand here is more brown dirt-like sand, but there was enough in the bunkers for shot-shaping requirements.
Greens: Highlight of the round; felt they were in great shape, with speeds and breaks that were quite tricky at times. Also noticed the size of the green complexes varied from Pebble-like small (#10) to Aviara-type large.
ETC: As mentioned, the staff was very uninterested, with the younger staff seeming either too busy to help or too indifferent to care. Property is quite isolated. Plenty of parking. Nice clubhouse for the public. Range was rather uninspired. Course layout, while fun, left something to be desired. Pace was a great 4.25 hours with very little waiting. Recommend at a good price.» Close
