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. Uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies abound and you'll also face forced carries to narrow landing areas as well as blind layup shots. The more open front nine is player friendly and the back nine is where it gets tougher with mostly tree-lined holes and more strategically placed bunkers. The golf course is as scenic as it is challenging with elevated tees and greens that overlooks the surrounding hills and valleys. The beauty and difficulty of the course has built Chehalem Glenn Golf Club a reputation as one of the greater Portland area's must-play courses.

    This is a wonderful golf course. As a relative novice, it provides a real challenge, but I know I am playing on one of the most difficult public courses in the area.
    Most of the holes are difficult, but numbers six and nine on the front and eleven and twelve on the back are uniquely so. Six demands a great tee shot and then presents a difficult approach over a ravine. Nine requires a draw for the right hander and then likely a couple of shots to get to an elevated green. Eleven punishes anything to the right and then asks for a very challenging uphill approach. Twelve is a beast because of length and a relatively wide ravine.
    All this said, I enjoy the course. Its difficulty is a challenge, not a reason to give up golf, even for a relatively weak player like me.

    I walked the coarse (beginning of May 2012) when it was slight over cast & partly sunny & was just winded a couple of times. The course had well kept fairways with different challenges on every hole. The greens must have been plugged within the past 2 weeks & were still very sandy & very bumpy so the putting was not very good. I wish they would have posted this prior to me playing so I could have tried it another day.

    Best public course if it's too wet everywhere else but if you don't hit it straight bring a bunch of balls. The low green fees make it a great value.

    This Public Golf Course plays and looks like a nice Private Country Club. It is challenging for the low handicap golfer. Yet tees have been provided for the high handicap player. If you can not drive 150 yards there are drop zones to allow play for even the weakest drives. This course is site of both Senior Golf and Junior Golf events. . Practice areas are provided at no cost. The best part is that the course is open and playable even when it is raining because the fairways are sand based with drains.This is a hilly course and electric carts are recommended. I just love playing here and consider this one of the nicest golf courses in the Portland area.

    Fun course, 9-12 will really test your skills! This course is not for the faint of heart.

    An outstanding course for the above average golfer. Challenging, well kept, and attractive. However, this course has a high slope rating, meaning it is not appropriate for beginners or weak hitters. Unless a person can drive a ball at least 150 yards in the air, this course is unplayable.

    Due to the many hills and ravines, I recommend an electric cart.

    This course will always be a has real rough and a variety of areas you don't want to hit your ball into. I really tried hard to hit in down the middle and even layed up to stay out of the wetlands. My score was still terrible, but I can hardly wait to play it again. It is what I call a real golf has not been trimmed extensively to speed up play! It is tought to walk, if you are not in very good shape, rent a cart. Service was excellent in the proshop and at the starter's shed. They do need to ad more bathrooms. Price was great and the setting is tranquil.
