Austere university course, immaculately kept

I'd heard of Trysting Tree occasionally over the years, but didn't know much about it before visiting. I came away impressed not just with the golf course, but the whole ethos of the place. Although it's a university course, it has all the down-home modesty of a country public course. Not only does it support a D-I golf program, it has a committed cast of regulars from Corvallis and beyond. It is also affordable, and in spite of its low green fees, it is one of the best-conditioned golf courses I've ever played, sporting prim fairways and greens many PGA Tour venues would envy.

Design-wise, the course is a little idiosyncratic, with many raised greens (it's in a floodplain) and some eccentric mounding, but overall it's a fun and fair test. And Sean Arey, who has ruled the roost for nearly 30 years here, is a great ambassador for the course. If you're in the Willamette Valley, you should definitely stop by.

Another great visit

A shower was possible, but only a few sprinkles at the start. Nice to see they replaced the carts. They also have the sleds available.
Being the turf research lab for OSU, you'd think it would be in great shape all the time. It actually is so, despite pretty heavy play, especially by their students and the HS and OSU golf teams. Greens are tough to read, but true, fast, and fair. Sometimes a slow pace, due to beginners.
Only has a snack bar, but decent beers on tap. Always a cute co-ed or two working the counter. If you're in the area, this is a must-play.

Best public course in Oregon!

Just a gorgeous course. Absolutely stunning. This is where the Oregon State University golf team host their division I NCAA tournaments! I played after a wet weekend in the middle of January... and it played like a late spring day! Not wet at all!
