This is a great value for what you get. It's an above average layout that has a real country feel. There are no homes abutting the course. Many of the greens have quite severe breaks, which gives this course some bite. Otherwise the layout is fairly straightforward, with some fairly easy holes. The par 3's, with one exception, are fairly short and fun plays. There is water lurking on several holes. This course is a big thumbs up.

This Course is well- maintained and has length for a challenging round...plenty of fairway space and plenty of hazards should you stray off too far...putting greens are well-groomed, with a few slants and breaks in putting... the hazards around the apron and fairways can be a risky/reward shots to challenge your skills...

It was memorial day so I expected it to be slow. When it was are tee time we had two groups still ahead of us that had not started yet. Almost six hours for the round is a bit much. The course is playing well and the greens are in good shape. Pin locations were interesting on a few holes but made it fun. I recommend it but maybe skip the holiday round.

But! There is one thing this Course needs to improve on and I have been saying it for years ? They need more sand in the greenside bunkers. The way the bunkers are now are fine for the Fairway bunkers. But it's like hitting out of dirt on the greenside bunkers and that is not right. Other than that this courses in great shape the greens are great and it's playing very well

This is a nice little links type course that I frequent often, as it is close to my home. The staff here is always friendly and accommodating. Course conditions are generally good, except during the wet season, where the course does not drain well, leading to many plugged balls and generally soft conditions. Now that the course has dried out for the season it plays very well, with enough challenges to keep the better players interested, while allowing beginners like me (1 year) to still put up a respectable round. Greens tend to stimp a bit lower than some of the nicer courses, and the grounds are well maintained. Definitely worth a visit!

Spring golf on the west coast reflected in my review. Courses are going to be soft and wet this time of year but the course was very playable. Winter rules because of the amount of mud on the ball.

Course conditions were very good and the course design is very exciting with some blind shots. Greens were in great shape and offered some challenge.

I look forward to playing here again later in the season to see the course at its best.

OK, it's Oregon and we get plenty of rain. Keeping that in mind you should expect it to be muddy if playing after some recent rain. I drove but was required to stay on the cart path due to soft (very soft) conditions. much of the fairways were difficult to walk across to get to my ball from the cart path. Could feel yourself sinking when walking. The last time I played here it was dry 90 degrees and I cooked in the sun (very little shade) and great if you don't want to hit trees. Other than that, it's a nice course, and they offer a chipping practice area. The driving range is sometimes off the grass when conditions are good. Staff is great, and the food is 3.5 stars.

The staff is always friendly and courteous. They make your time at the facility very inviting. The course is very user-friendly and kept in Tip-Top shape. Pretty wet in the winter as are most courses in the area. If you're a first-time player I'm sure you'll enjoy the beauty of the area and the layout of the course.

This course is in need of drainage renovation. Very swampy conditions even though it’s been dry for over 4 days. Save your money until summer time to play here. There are better courses in the metro area to play at this time of the year if you have the itch.

Langdon or Stone Creek .

I played Heron Lakes and it was fine. Nothing’s perfect this time of the year, but you won’t be losing balls in the fairway like I did here.

Could you name a couple courses in the area that are a little less soggy now. Coming down to from AK this week and looking for some places to play. I've played a lot the courses in the area. Thanks
