Tight fairways

If I had hit my tee shots well I would have scored well. Beautiful scenery, challenging course with tight fairways. Plays short, but the tight fairways make up for it. I would strongly recommend a cart as it it very hilly. Side hill lies are the norm. I would play it again if I ever figure out how to hit a ball off the tee box, but not at the resort price ($85). Did I mention tight fairways?!!

Challenging terrain!

Overall a fantastic course.

Course management necessary

Most of the holes are considerably narrower than what you are used to. Some severe uphill and downhill holes and thick blackberry vines that eat balls interspersed among the big trees that knock down wayward shots. Tees and fairways were about average, greens were in very good shape. Speed was reasonable. Can’t say about the sand, must have missed it all. This place is a challenge, found myself thinking around it like a links course. From what I found in the bushes I’d say most folks are leaving their good balls at home as it could get expensive. Only hit five drivers today and played my best round here.

Beautiful grounds

From the time we entered the pro shop to completing our round we enjoyed the beauty, weather and immaculate course. The greens are true and the hills and fairways are cut and kept in pristine condition. I would rank this course highly and I would play it again.

Still as fun as ever

Even though it's a short course, I rated it "Somewhat Challenging" due to how much fun I have playing elevation golf. I arrived too late for my normal warm-up routine and it showed. I shot 44 on the front before I found my range on the back, where I shot a tidy 38.

The course condition was excellent, the greens were as tricky as ever, and we finished our round in 3:05 ... and that was with picking up a single to play with us on the 7th.

Just another smooth, fun, and economical place to play, with good draft beers & some slightly over-priced food. I love Skamania.

Extremely Narrow Fairways

As a single digit golfer, I seldom used a driver as the fairways are very narrow. Easy to loose balls if you miss the fairway. This is compounded by the windy conditions.

Unbelievably beautiful Skamania!

Be sure and take a camera. Every hole is unbelievably beautiful with trees and the amazing Columbia Gorge. Hit the ball straight and you will score really well!

Great time if you like a challenge

Conditions were alright, fairways were verrrryyyy firm and greens pretty soft. Make sure you practice long irons cause the fairways and approach shots are tight

Tight but Great

Played Skamania Lodge in Washington today and enjoyed an extremely good round. Lost more balls than usual, but the course is extremely tight and once you are off the first cut, you can kiss the ball goodbye. However, there is plenty of room laterally if you can keep the ball reasonably straight. Will know better next time how to approach several holes.

The staff was great, course was of good value for a guest at the lodge, the scenery was wonderful and the round extremely enjoyable. Can't wait to try it again!
