Nice course for the money

First time playing here. Fairways and tee boxes in great shape. The greens were rough and bumpy. Nice distance for a nine hole course. If the greens were better I would rate it higher.

Horrible, second to worse course I’ve ever played

Not gonna bash the place but all I’m gonna say is this; just stay away if you’re expecting to play on a golf course.

Try it sometime

This is a great little golf course to practice and work on your game. The people are super friendly, all the golfers are great It is in a rural area that is a beautiful setting and a very peaceful and relaxing place without the usual competitive atmosphere. The owner and employees cannot be beat for their friendliness. Take a drive and try it.

New Clubs

I just purchased a new set of clubs, found the course for a special price on Golf Now. I was alone for the first nine, finally saw people on the 14th hole, so that was nice in its own way.

The fairway grass is a bit taller than most courses, but the greens were in bad shape. Just hit a green and take an auto two putt at the worst.

Going downhill

Vernonia Golf Course is an out of the way course near a small town. It's now a 9 hole course, though years ago it was an 18 hole course. I'd have to guess that economics are the reason for the decline, but the greens are half fern like ground cover, half grass, and in general in poor condition. The fairways were very dry. The course layout does present challenges, and there are plenty of places where it's easy to lose your ball. But in general the shape the course is in- especially the greens- does not offer a satisfying golfing experience.

Worst course I've ever played

Just terrible. Where to begin? Tee time was 8am. I showed up at 7:40 and nobody was there. The greens are like a mixture of moss and clovers, not an actually putting green at all. The fairways were just brown crab grass and the ground was hard as a rock. Just dried cracked dirt. They obviously don't spend any time or money taking care of this place. Not even worth the 10 dollars I paid on golf now, let alone the fact that they charge 24 dollars for 18 holes when you just play 9 holes twice. Would not recommend this place to anybody.

BAD GolfNow booking & POOR golg course

FIRST, I booked FOUR of us who play about once a week using GolfNow on this Vernonia course. I have used GolfNow a number of times but the hotdeals & dicounts are FEWER & now the booking fee is TOO EXPENSINVE (about $13 dollars). SECOND, the fairways were TOTALLY dried-up & HOLE #7 is TOO narrow & ridiculous with its SLOPING & SMALL tee box.

Very nice experience

This very enjoyable course allows for accuracy and good putting. The course layout is very fair for most golfers. There are no tricky or blind shots required. It is an honest course that allows for a pleasant nine holes of golf. The course personnel are very helpful and friendly.

work in progress

The staff is very friendly, he is working hard to get the course back in shape. It is definitely a work in progress; greens are playable but ruggedd, the sand is closer to gravel...but you can see the work being done. There are some nice touches...animals caved into stumps on 3 and 8, for example. There are a couple challening holes where your tee shot must sneak through an opening before widening into wider, more forgiving fairways. Give the course and owner a chance, support it now so he can make the improvements to turn this back into a "hidden gem".

Way out there

Good value, fairway was not much different than the rough.
Kind of fun for a change of pace! A bit of a drive from Beaverton, but worth it for a day of golf!

Nice course away from the city

Overall, this was a good course to play. There was a shotgun start tournament that started shortly after we tee'd off but for the deal we got it was good. The greens on some holes are a little under maintained, but the course was in decent condition. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the food was good.

this course is a pleasant change from the city

I found a 'hot deal' on Golf Now late Sat. eve, checked the Vernonia weather report and set an 8 am tee time. The course if about an hour drive but proved worth it as the weather had been so hot in the Portland area we didn't want to try golfing in 88+ deg. heat. It was perfect - partly cloudy as it gets some appreciable left-over coastal weather patterns.
The pace was average, a bit slow on a few holes, layout a little confusing but once understood, worked well overall, and the greens a tad rough but typically quite consistent. I had a few nice set-ups and surprised myself on the 18th with a birdie from 130 yards out - my first ever from the fairway! Overall it was an enjoyable round and my lowest score in many months!

Exceptionally well maintained with wonderfully friendly staff.

Compared to other 'rural' golf courses Vernonia is beautifully maintained and every member of the staff I met was friendly and offered any help desired to have a fun time on the course.

fun course

I remember this course as an 18 hole course. It has changed owners and is now combined. It has a lot of the old front nine combined with the back nine. It is now a 9 hole course but still worth the drive. It has a lot of good tall trees for shade and is fun to play, the new owners are very friendly.
