Oregon Golf Destinations

  • Eugene

    Located in the southern end of the Willamette Valley, the Eugene area is ripe for wineries, running, cycling, fishing, hiking, canoeing and some very affordable public golf. It's also home of the University of Oregon, where Casey Martin, famous for his disability discrimination lawsuit against the PGA Tour, is the school's golf coach. It's also where the school's championship track teams have earned this charming city's nickname, "Track Town USA."

    Middlefield Golf Course in is an 18-hole executive course that is owned and operated by the city of Cottage Grove. The course borders the Row River with some holes playing right along its shores. There are also a few ponds that come into play. Water is a prominent feature of the golf course but mature trees and landscaping border the fairways as well, requiring some accuracy.
    Situated in the Mohawk Valley, Springfield Golf Club enjoys a diverse landscape that lends a unique character to each nine, giving the 18-hole layout the feel of two golf courses in one. The front nine climbs into the foothills of the Cascade Mountains while the back nine tumbles down onto the valley floor, featuring five holes that play along the banks of the Mohawk River.

  • Salem

    About an hour south of Portland on I-5, Salem is Oregon's capital city, though hardly the state's golf center. It is the state's third largest city with a population of about 100,000-plus, and there is a modest mix of private and public-access golf courses to choose from.

    Oregon City Golf Club was originally built in 1922 as a nine-hole course. In 1960, the second nine was added bringing the total yardage to 5,940. It had no sand traps but did contain plenty of trees and rolling fairways.
  • Bandon & Southern Oregon

  • Portland

    Residents love Portland with as much enthusiasm as the magazines that frequently praise the city for its "livability" - and part of that has to do with its abundance of outdoor activities. Come the warmer months when the rain subsides, golf becomes a big draw. And when it is raining, the masses huddle up in one of the city's countless coffee shops, or more than two dozen microbreweries.

    Chehalem Glenn Golf Club sprawls across beautifully hilly terrain, providing a course that is not for the faint of heart. The course is defined by the dramatic changes in elevation, which can make it tough to walk. The steep hills make this a tough golf course even for high handicappers.
    Rose City Golf Course is the second oldest municipal track in the Portland area. In 1921, A.H. "Jay" Gould played his first round of golf ever at Eastmoreland Golf Course.

On Jan. 31, 1923 the first green fee ticket was sold to Jay Gould and in the spring, more than 800 played in one day. The city then took over the course completely.
    The Ghost Creek Course is a golfer's dream; four sets of tees on each hole to challenge every golfer; continuous cart paths for convenience and ease of play; architecture in the "old style" leaving the land completely natural; vistas of the Cascades, Coast Range and Tualatin Hills, together with the farmland of the Tualatin Valley, create the ultimate aesthetic experience.
