This is on of my favorite courses to play, but the winter has been harsh on all courses and no one has been able to mow. Yesterday was probably the worst condition I have seen the course but they were mowing and when the summer rolls around and the course is trimmed, it is one of the best courses around. Highly recommend even now if you can find a good golfnow deal. They do have a cool 9 and dine for $35 as well. Also the south is more challenging and fun in my opinion but the North is a little more forgiving.

First time playing Used cart Wet weather

Reviewed on

The day I arrived to play the clouds were hanging low in the sky and there were intermittent showers. Not a deal breaker when you carry good rain gear. Loved the imposing feel of the huge clubhouse and received a friendly greeting by the pro shop staff. The North Course was in play on this visit.

Thirty minutes on the range and another 20 getting a feel for the pace of the practice putting green and I was primed for the first tee. 90* cart rule in effect today as some of the fairways were holding their share of moisture. As an extra challenge (not that my game doesn't need more) I did my best to keep my ball on the side of the fairways the cart paths were on.

Large, flat tee boxes were a pleasure to play from, the fairways were generous in width but with the moisture on the ground the ball wasn't running far. The 3-4" rough was wet and was good for an extra stroke. The undulating greens are large and with todays soft conditions they held shots well. Putts rolled nicely and all the greens were running at a nice speed. There aren't a lot of bunkers or water hazards on the North Course and they really never came into play for me.

Overall, an exceptional day of golfing on a fair course. It would easily get a 4 star rating from this golfer if it weren't for the wet spring conditions.

The course was holding quite a bit of standing water. Walking through marshy ground even on some fairways. Hole 4 was under construction, so that wasn't that great. Temporary green in play.

I love playing at the Reserve. The course conditions are always impeccable. That said, the North course's bunkers were hard/cracking and unraked. But since I managed to avoid them, it didn't affect my round.

Over the last few years, The Reserve North Course has become my go to local course. They dropped their prices which made a big difference as far as playing it more often.

The course itself is fun and challenging, the greens are generally in good shape and pace of play has even improved over the years.

The clubhouse and food is also very good, much better than most public courses on both accounts.

My only issue with these courses is how wet and soft they are, year round. In the winter it's almost unplayable, in the summer they like to keep everything green so the fairways and greens are soft, a lot of balls will actually plug in the fairway. I can live with it, but less water would be good.

Overall, this is one of the best public offerings within 20 miles of Portland, enjoy!

Played the North course on a gorgeous day. The first few greens were pocked up due to golfers not fixing their divots. But after that, the conditions and golfers' repair habits improved and the greens and entire course was delightful.

It was a little wet from the rain previous days, nice layout and somewhat challenging. What I dislike was having to carry my bag downstairs and from the cart return back to the car since they don't allow driving the cart out to parking lots it's a long way not nice at all.

The course was nice but they sprayed blue die on the course and all of our clothes, gloves and balls had blue ink on them. Not ideal at all. They paired us with a single as well and refused to let the single have his own cart while they had 30 other carts sitting there. Very expensive and not worth the money unless you can get a cheap time at an off time of day. I will not be back here for a while.
