Nice day - Great Round
Beautiful day/ Morning for golf! Only issue due to the prior and upcoming heat of the day the conditions were wet as things were over watered.. Biggest issue was in the sand as it was damp and packed. Otheriwse if I stayed out of the traps it was fine!
always fun to play.. needs more water, though pretty hot days...
snack cart sells things too expensive ;(
What a Disappointment!
I used to live in Portland and played this course often. I have not played it in over 20 years until today and was flabbergasted by the overall experience. There was no starter or greeter, the carts are old and in poor condition, and the course itself is not well maintained.
Fairways were dry and hardpan, fairway bunkers were poorly maintained (one broken rake for a large bunker!), and on-course "amenities" were non-existent. There is no bathroom on the front nine at all, limited drinking water throughout the course, and large flocks of geese -- with all of their waste -- litters the course.
Clearly, there is no pride in the way this course is being presented to the public. It gets a lot of play, but any positive reviews are ill deserved. I now live in the Palm Springs, CA area and play at least three rounds a week at a variety of well maintained course around the desert -- paying between $45 and $80 in season, and as low as $25 in the heat of our summer there.
I paid $20 for a "Hot Deal" time. I would never pay any more than that for this course.
Awesome course and has lots of wildlife and amazing veiws.
Absolutely love this course and great blue. I shot the best round of my life with a 79. Staff is very friendly and course was in great condition. Will definitely be playing there again!
Couse in great shape
Greens were firm and fast and would hold a good short iron from the fairway. Pace was excellent, finished in just over 4 hours. Fairways had a few browned out areas but at least the sprinkler heads had yardage to the center (per peeve of mine.) Hot deal worked out well and they honor "youth on course" discount for my son!
They’re close to losing it
Played two weeks ago and the course played better, greens rolled a lot better. Today greens were slow and bumpy. Fairways were terrible, patches of wet dead grass with patches of thicker wet grass. Some greens half of the green was just watered and the other half was dry. Completely disappointed.
Always a great course, but slow
Started us on the back nine, got behind a group that was slow(like 3 holes behind the group that was In front of them.) the layout has a nice mix of shots. Lots of wildlife(bunnies squirrels) and we were lucky to see a big beaver late. Greens are pretty really good Considering the pounding they take a day which means the greens crews work hard. Sand was a bit hard.
Great Golf Course
The course was in excellent shape. They were very busy but the tee times were right on time. The marshall was visible throughout the round and kept everyone moving along nicely.
