This is a beautiful course. It struggles with greens at times depending on the weather. However, must have been good summer as greens best of all times I have played them. They could be firmer but that would be too hard.
This is the ultimate in target golf. The tee shots are short but relatively tight. It is like playing 14 200 yard par 3s off the tee.
But fun nonetheless. If you don't hit it straight, you will lose plenty of balls. But then again, when you look for them, you will find many others.
Views are spectacular
Spectacular course a must play if your in the area. Course staff other than pro shop attendants were about as friendly as a pay toilet in a diarea ward. Seemed very upity and non chalant. A must play if your innthis area with views of Columbia river gorge. Blackberry bush lined fairways good eating those ripe above waist level.
Yes, the course is tight...but w/ the short yardage this is to be expected. Played Skamania on a vacation while staying at the resort.
Excellent layout and especially liked the back 9 w/ a couple dramatic downhill par 4 holes. It is a unique course w/ great views of the gorge. Staff in pro shop and throughout resort is fantastic!!
The course was in nice shape but extremely slow even on a Wednesday because of beginners on a difficult course.....and no marshals. Also, no water on the course and the temp was in the 90s.
course is unique
Greens were a bit slow. Overall course is in excellent condition. Love to play it. Come to course about 4 times a year. Staff is very friendly and snack bar is great. Would recommend it to everyone.
Beautiful Scenery, tough conditions
The course would be much more enjoyable if management removed abundant Blackberry bushes lining fairways. There are plenty of trees to protect the fairways/rough............
Beautiful and a great value
Most of the fairways are tree lined and rather tight. It plays short, and you have to pick your targets. The holes offer a nice variety. The scenery is spectacular offering views of the Columbia Gorge and the lodge provides top notch amenities. Its a really nice course and I hope you have a chance to play here.
Boy when you come to play Skamania you better hit 'em strait! But man what an amazing layout and setting for a course. I have played at the lodge maybe 4 times now and each has been a pleasure. You will lose some balls but guaranteed to find quite a few as well. The staff is great both in the pro shop and the marshalls driving around on the course. I walked the 18 last time I played and sure enough walking up to the 17th green I was thinking to myself how amazing the water was gonna taste back at the clubhouse...a couple putts later as I'm moving toward the 18th here comes a Marshall and he offered me a water. It may be a small gesture but man it's the small things that can make all the difference. Skamania gets an A++ from this guy.
Playing this course is an adventure. Narrow fairways and unforgiving roughs, bring lots of extra golf balls. The course is well-maintained and very relaxing. After playing they have a great restaurant in the lodge and beautiful views.
Had a great time golfing with Jeff. Course offers opportunities to challenge every level of golfer, from duffers to scratch low handicappers.
Never used the driver...narrow but beautiful fairways.
snack bar service was unacceptable. They would not answer the phone .when to the counter they were to busy to even talk to me.Now if they are that busy some in management should get off there butt and help.This could be a deal braker.
Have enjoyed playing here for many years. Alway beautiful and people in the pro shop r the very best! Always kind, courteous and professional.
I like to play sometime here good test for myself .
