Fun day on the course
I joined up with 3 other gentlemen, and proceeded to have an enjoyable and leisurely round of golf. I had a great time. I'll be back!
Stonecreek - Winter Ready
Played Stonecreek yesterday, the green’s have come in nicely since plugging and sanding and the course looks to be in great condition for the winter. I play around Portland during the summer but always return to Stonecreek - best value for money in Portland year round and one of the few courses that has invested in drainage and green maintenance to support wet conditions. Excellent all around!
The best winter golf course in Portland area
The course is in great condition. Green has been punched 4 days ago but still rolls well. You can drive on the fairway on most of none part 3s. If you can't stay away from playing golf in the wet season, this course is your first choice.
First Time at Stone Creek
I was told how good this course is and I was not disappointed. The layout is very good with just the right amount of bunkers and water hazards. It's forgiving for the odd stray shot off the tee.
On the day we played the greens had just been prepared for winter, so it was not the best time to play, however, even that didn't take the edge of the day.
I would like to play there again.
Better back 9 than front
As an east coaster, I wanted to play somewhere around Portland that let me know I was in the Pacific Northwest and not at a generic resort. Stonecreek did just that, although the back 9 was much better than the front.
Upon arrival, you'll notice a ton of locals and some very bitter employees. Ignore the employees and warm up on the spacious range or one of the two practice greens. Both were in good condition, even though the course was pretty wet.
Once on the course, I was impressed with how lush and well-drained everything was given the amount of rain we'd gotten. The bunkers especially were in great shape. The greens were fine, although it seems no one there wants to fix a ball mark.
The front nine opens up right in front of you, with no tricks or gimmicks. There are a couple of tee shots where being able to work the ball will help, but for the most part, what you see is what you get. The greens are mostly elevated or guarded by bunkers in the front, so along with a course that I imagine is usually at least a little wet, there aren't many opportunities to run the ball up to the hole.
Once you reach the 11th hole, the fairways narrow considerably and ball placement becomes much more critical. You also get more elevation change, which can leave some difficult shots where you have a downhill lie to an uphill green. The par 3's on this course are pretty good, and I especially loved 14, a wedge over a natural area to a super narrow green. Hit it into the hill behind the green and let it feed your ball back to the hole. Modern architects seem to have forgotten how fun short par 3's are; the 14th is a prime example of the type of design features courses should try to incorporate.
I wish the front 9 was more like the back, but I still had an enjoyable round. I would recommend this course if you're in the area.
Hi swetsb. We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. Thank you for such a detailed and thoughtful review in regards to the specific layout! We aim for a 5-star experience, so we always welcome feedback for improvement. Thank you for playing Stonecreek Golf Club.
Course in great condition and fair
If you get too wild with your shots you'll lose some balls, and the bunkers are steep faced, but overall a fair test of golf on a well maintained course. The greens were in excellent shape.
Greens were very good, staff was very friendly. The price was good for the experience.
Mature Douglas fir trees and elevation changes made for a unique experience for a visitor.
Pace of play ok, really enjoyed it.
Great course. Slow as molasses
Slow play is the standard at this course. Marshals don’t seem to care. They’ll acknowledge its slow, then won’t hold anyone accountable.
No sand in bunkers.
The course could be a gem if they fixed the snail pace and the traps
Great day of golf at Stonecreek
Had a great time with friends and a great golf course.
I played this course in the afternoon on August 14th and it was a treat. Great layout which was fun and challenging! Can test golfers of all skill levels. I would definitely come back and recommend this to anyone in the Portland area!
tale of two nines, a great walk
Stone Creek is a tale of two nine, the front is relatively flat with long open fairways lined with very tall think wild grasses. the back nine is more of a Glenn set up where you are going up and down through the local creek valleys and hills. this part of the course has more trees and less wild grass.
the greens are awesome, tee boxes flat and fairways beautiful. there isn't much bad about this course.
play it, you'll enjoy it.
Challenging for me
Being from Florida enjoyed the entire course,from layout,rolling hills and speed of greens.will play again
Friends and Family Time
The greens were solid and challenging and the fairways were clean
The course was in great shape t to green. Pace of play was a little slow at 4 1/2 hours.
This course has lots of sand traps placed very strategically. Greens are perfect and lightning fast. This course is excellent.
Been going their for 20 some years. Moved away for a bit and came back and it’s like I never left. Doug Susy is the man. Such a great layout and I never understand what kind of witchcraft they have going on with their sandwiches. They just taste better. Thanks Stone creek for a lot of fun years!
Best Value Around
Great course for all levels of play. Very friendly staff. Overall the best value for golf in the Portland area. At least as good and better then the pricier courses around and far better than the local munis.
Fun but challenging
The course has two personalities with an open links feel on the front and a tighter traditional feel. It is hard to score consistently, but every hole offers a chance to score well. Hitting fairways is critical. It is a stout walk. Hats off to those who do it regularly.
While it may not be the best beginners course, it certainly a wonderful for the more seasoned (or just plain persistent) golfer.
