Leaves are on the ground but the course is In great shape. The tee boxes have been moved around to change the feel of the holes and length making it feel like the first time playing here.

He would play this course again.

I was able to get a convenient tee time at 8:00 am. I was matched with a terrific twosome that were fun to play with and matched my twosome’s ability. 18 holes, walking, took 4 hours. We had a great time.

Beautiful day/ Morning for golf! Only issue due to the prior and upcoming heat of the day the conditions were wet as things were over watered.. Biggest issue was in the sand as it was damp and packed. Otheriwse if I stayed out of the traps it was fine!

I used to live in Portland and played this course often. I have not played it in over 20 years until today and was flabbergasted by the overall experience. There was no starter or greeter, the carts are old and in poor condition, and the course itself is not well maintained.

Fairways were dry and hardpan, fairway bunkers were poorly maintained (one broken rake for a large bunker!), and on-course "amenities" were non-existent. There is no bathroom on the front nine at all, limited drinking water throughout the course, and large flocks of geese -- with all of their waste -- litters the course.

Clearly, there is no pride in the way this course is being presented to the public. It gets a lot of play, but any positive reviews are ill deserved. I now live in the Palm Springs, CA area and play at least three rounds a week at a variety of well maintained course around the desert -- paying between $45 and $80 in season, and as low as $25 in the heat of our summer there.

I paid $20 for a "Hot Deal" time. I would never pay any more than that for this course.
