First-timer

After hearing many favorable reviews I took my 16-year-old son out for a round and we had a great time. Course was in pretty good shape although the cart paths were crumbling. A bit pricey for an executive layout but worth a try. I don't think I'll play there again anytime soon.

You have to come and play this course!!

Portland West is a very beautiful course kept in meticulous shape by the owners and staff. Gerry, who is the Course Pro and also works the desk, is super friendly.The greens are in fantastic condition, as well as the fairways. However, if you're not on the fairway, as most of us aren't, the rough is kept mowed fairly high. I would love for them to mow it a little lower. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

Bring all your wedges

Nice little track. Elevation changes on par 3's make club selection tough. Good greens. Not too fast. Very good short par 4's. I had fun. Was the first group off on Saturday morning and played in 2 1/2 hours. It's a pretty area.

Great value

Played here several times and it is always in great shape. Greens roll true with no damage even after the harsh summer we had. Not an overly difficult course but great for working on your short game.

Fun 18 holes

I thought the course was in very good shape considering the heat this summer. The practice green is the best of all the greens. However, I was impressed with the course greens as well. They're a little hairier and slower at least the day I played. You can also warm up by hitting on a grass range which was pretty nice.

A great place to practice your short game and irons. A little pricey with other deals out there, but if you're a senior reasonable.....

I will be back in the fall because it looks like it would be a beautiful place to play....

Happy Saturday game :)

Course and facilities are well maintained, Staff is very friendly. A challenging course that's great to work on your short game. Fairways and greens are in an exceptional shape. There are a few holes where water comes into play, but it does not dominate any of the shots. An executive course that gives a few opportunities to break out the driver. Course management is key. I would highly recommend this course.

Portland West- Great Exec Golf!!!!

Portland West is an excellent par 60 executive course. Perfect for a quick round, for walking, and especially for focusing on your short game. The 19th hole libations and food are much better than you might expect.

Cool little course

The course was well maintained. Tee boxes and greens were exceptional. If I didn't get a great deal through golf now and had to pay full price it would have been too expensive for that size course!!

Vunderbal!

I can see why pro has been there so long! Challenging cpurse pf 12 par 3s and 6 par 4s. I played w father son for 9 and played last 9 solo. Cpurse is really well preserved... Only issue was signage. More signs w arrows. Not a big deal. Parking convenient. I would like to play in warm weather. Greens were great! I am stickler on greens. Just a touch on hairy side, but its Nov! Great job guys! J
