Great Spring Condition
The course was in really good shape for mid April since there has been much less rain than usual the last several weeks. The greens were fast and in great condition. The fairways were firm with plenty of roll. Getting to and from the course was a breeze with the light traffic these days.
I you like to spend hours cleaning your cart and not be allowed in the house before taking your pants off, by all means play here. If not don’t bother. The entire course was covered by goose droppings.
Layout, fairway and green were good.
Some halls are challenging and it was really fun to play here
RTJ Jr Course, Very Good design, but takes a back seat to its Brother
A RTJ Jr design course, very good, but the maintenance is substandard compared to its Brother Great Blue. More Maintenance is needed to elevate to 4 Stars
Greens had just been sanded and punched. I understand that this is a necessary evil, but come on now being advised of it until you get to the course is terrible. At that point it’s to late to make plans elsewhere
I put this course before, but I’ve had many times for the greens are in much better shape. Golfers on the course do not care about their divots on the green
Give it a try!
I have played Great Blue many times, but never Greenback. My mistake! It was interesting, had more tress and water hazards. And, it was in great shape. I think I might prefer it over the blue course!
Best Course in Portland!
Heron lakes Greenbacks is in my opinion the best course in Portland. I love this course.
Lightning fast greens.
My friend used to work there for a few years and used to play both courses all the time.
Had a blast after not playing here for some years.
And as anyone that's played a lot of golf here it lives up to the saying:
"no break Heron lake".
Some of you know what I'm talking about. lol
Didn't cost too many greenbacks
I'm not a good golfer, and I tend to play executive courses of about 2000 yds per 9 holes. But I've been striking the ball unusually well lately, and had a $20 Golf Now credit, so I gave this course a try. Friends and past playing partners had recommended it. The fairways were wide, there were no hills, but a number of water hazards and traps did me in. I lost 5 balls during the round It was difficult at times to determine where the greens were on the longer holes, as a first-time player. Other than a few random wet spots, the course was dry and the greens in good shape. I sank a 45-foot putt, but otherwise had nothing good happen. For an average or better golfer, there are enough pitfalls there to offer some challenges.
Wide open and beautiful
This was just what i needed to get my confidence back. A great course in perfect condition.
For March golf in the Portland area the course was in excellent shape and the greens were good.
Wouldn't bother coming back
Played both courses at Heron Lakes before, but forgot how dingy the facilities have become. Mildew smell from the outdoor carpet, the club house is nothing more than a mobile trailer that is on its last leg, bathrooms were gross, and staff at the pro shop were seemingly inconvenienced by us at check-in. I can say that the course was in decent shape considering it is early March and we are just coming off of a few weeks of snow, greens were better than expected. Worst part of the course is the incredible amount of bird crap. 4 out of 5 balls will come to lie on feces, guaranteed.
For the price, the course is decent, but there are plenty of better courses/club houses/pro shop staffs in the Portland area for the same price. I won't be going back to Heron Lakes until they make some changes.
