Good moments, sloppy norm

Like my golf game, the reserve had places where the course was really playing well. The rest however was really sloppy (wet). As wet as anything in the area; tri mountain, Glendoveer, etc. tough to walk. Greens played well and true tho. Pace of play was terrible for mid january. Else it was fun. For $20 ok, for 50$ in winter, not so ok.

Best I’ve played in PDX (South)

Had a great time playing the south course. Even in the spitting rain, the course played great and the bunkers were drained. Ps. There are a lot of them....bunkers that is. The experience of playing a semi-private course like Reserve is a treat, when playing the muni’s of PDX week after week. Make the drive to The Reserve and enjoy what a well thought out golf course and clubhouse experience feels like, yet still not breaking the bank. I scored a $26 Sunday rate w/cart included on a Sunday. I will be back.

great day at the Reserve

Cold and foggy first nine. Hit a drive down the middle
on 10. And the sun came out for the rest of the morning.
Fun round with work buddies.

great championship layout

They have 2 great courses here. The south course has hosted seniors tour majors events and limited field PGA events as well as top amateur events. The course conditions are first rate and the staff is outstanding. Last year they completed a 1.5 million dollar renovation on south. I've played a number of top 100 courses here and in Europe and the south course stacks up very well.

Amazing fall conditions

I’ve played the north course a few times, and this was my first time on the south side. For the middle of November, the course was still so well taken care of. Greens were in great shape. Super impressed with the condition of the course.cant wait to get out there again.

Never gotten to play the south side of this course, usually reserved for members. It was awesome and even with a frost delay, it was in amazing shape and a great challenging course!

Evolved, upscale semi-private golf done right

As the landscape has changed for upscale non-private golf in recent years, The Reserve Vineyards seems to be as relevant as ever. They do this by keeping one of their courses private for half the month, while letting the public play the other. This means accessible golf and the feeling of having gotten on a private club (including the trappings like gracious service and pristine conditioning). Neat model.

The South Course has adapted to changing times, too. Original architect John Fought's removal of several bunkers, in favor of increased fairway, makes the course more playable but still plenty. Other than a few pedestrian holes on the back nine (12-15), the layout is superb, too. Well worth a play if you're in the Portland area.

Bunker Play

The revision on the South course took out many bunkers. There are still many you can end up in. I would brush up on your bunker play if you are going to play this great course.

Great NOrthwest Design

Terrific course. Make sure you have an up to date map/layout. There were a few hazards not appearing on the Golf Now app. Lot of big sand traps but friendly conditions overall. Wonderful staff in every department.
Very much looking forward to keeping this course as a regular destination.

One of the best in the PDX metro area!

The south course, in my opinion, is one of the best courses in Portland. Today, the weather was perfect, the course was in mint condition, and we finished in under 4 hours! What a great "hot deal" at $45!
