Soggy but good for $10
Typical Par 3, very friendly staff. Rough was decently challenging and punished missed greens. Greens were smooth but a little long. Not a lot of people fixing their ball marks. Great range and very well maintained clubhouse/practice area.
Colwood Golf - Good Par 3 Practice Course
This is a covert good course to practice on irons and wedges (mostly wedges). Most holes are about 150 yards or so with the longest hole being 197.
Challenge your short game
This course is doing a great job of navigating these COVID19 times. Course is in decent shape and the greens are not easy, but can run on the slow side. Overall it’s a fun course and a great way to work out your short game.
Fun tight par 3s 9 holer
This is urban golf, 9 holes of par 3 fit snugly into a city block, traffic running along the left side of holes 1 and 2, if you hook your shot it could end up on somebody car windshields! Greens were smooth and fast, longest hole is 188, most are under 100 yards. It’s a practice course for your short games and also has a decent driving range and practice green, you can spend a couple hours out here hitting some balls then walk the 9 holes right after work.
What a fun little course. Just wish that the holes across the street were open to the general public. The course was wet and the grass had just been mowed leaving grass on every ball. The day was really fun and I will be back.
Good Par 3 Course near PDX Airport
Nice compact par 3 course out near the Portland airport in the northeast part of the city. The layout is nice, but there is a fair amount of soggy turf throughout the course and some greens are damaged, with exposed dirt where grass should be. There are 2 tees and 2 pins for every hole, so it's kind of fun to play 18 and play each tee/flag combo. Driving range and chipping/putting green available right by the pro shop, and prices are all very reasonable. Recommend if you're looking for a casual, quick, and cheap par 3!
Everything we need to do is all there.
I love the course, short and sweet, and I am intermediate golfer since I haven’t play golf for a long time. Excellent place to practice and sharp up your skills, and meals included is a smart move. I usually get there in the morning, and nicely low golfers traffic. In the end, there is a blower to clear out the bottom of shoes and golf cart before put in trunk is an excellent plus!
I hadn't played here since they changed to the Par 3 layout. I had just chosen to play a full size course when I had the time to play golf. I had just a few hours open this morning so decided to check it out. I really liked it. i played 18 holes and found the "two" nines very interesting.. You play the "short" version, white tee to white flag, then the "long" version, blue tee to blue flag. It does make the hole very different each time. What I really liked was the greens. They are very undulating and it makes the putting challenging. I thought they could have been quicker but otherwise, they really made the course what it is. I will be back to play it again sooner rather than later.
Definitely not the old colwood. Wouldn't recommend it. It is fairly priced and the driving range is decent. Greens are pretty beat up. Short flag sticks make judging distances challenging.
First time at Colwood, really liked the challenge of the greens. Played all blue pins in back, so tee shots had to challenge back pins. If you go over the green, you basically have no chance of getting up and down. Extremely undulating greens, bring your A game. Short flag sticks make yardage appear longer, trust the yardage.
nice practice facility
My wife and I played on a thursday morning, very few players out at 830 am. I would recommend this course and practice area for anyone looking to improve there game. Course has 2 flags on every green so you can play longer irons if you want. Greens were in decent shape for par 3 course. Did not use range but they did have new mats. and should be able to play off grass by next year. I will be back again.
A fun round with some exceptions
Bought some new irons last week and decided to hit Colwood to try to dial in the distances. It's my first trip to Colwood since the renovation into a 9 hole par three course. There are some interesting holes in the layout and I like the concept of blue and white tees along with blue and white pin placements. Good Variety there. I am not a fan of the mounds that are on every green. Makes putting more of a miniature golf experience than a place to practice putting. Having to wait for the foot golfers to clear the fairways was also annoying.
Good for beginners
9 hole course only but you can play it twice. Easy to walk. I think the furthest hole was around 200 yards playing from the blue tees. Some puddles of mud between holes. Very little water and sand traps to contend with.
