played the course with a couple from Portland who had not played the course. The weather was perfect with sun and only a small amount of wind.

Staff was outstanding as usual so the whole experience was memorable.

Excellent pace of play. The course is nestled in the forest. Beautiful views of the Columbia river, mountains and woods. The course is short with lots of elevation changes. Must hit the ball straight to avoid the brush and blackberries. Enjoyed my day.

At the risk of piling on -- I fully agree with the majority of reviews here. You MUST hit it straight, and there is little reward for the long hitter. The course measures less than 5400 yards from the white tees, with several par 4's in the 300 yard range.

This was my second time at this course; I hit driver twice (once OB, the other with little advantage), and kept it in play with my 5 wood. For the 20+ handicapper, the rule is "Course Management" to ensure an enjoyable round.

For a resort course, I was surprised by the lack of resort amenities during our round -- no marshals or hosts, no beverage cart, a mediocre 19th hole snack bar. I would have expected better.

Highlight of the day: making a birdie on the Par 5 18th hole. Hit my 5 wood three times and finished with a 10 foot putt!

This is a gorgeous course in the Columbia River Gorge. It's part of an equally gorgeous resort that I have stayed at w/o playing golf. It's a tight mountain course. The ball is either in the fairway or lost...down a cliff or in a berry patch. And the layout tries to sucker you into hitting the wrong club. Do not be ashamed to hit an iron off the tee. One hole, we hit 8 irons on a par 4. We found the fairway and had a 9 iron to the green, what's wrong with that?! The course is in immaculate condition and a real pleasure to play. You just have to play within your game.
