Santiam Golf Club was started by a group of seven men that had a dream of creating an affordable community golf course. The course has a straightforward, classic design that will appeal to players of all skill levels. The layout features straight holes and gradual doglegs that wrap around tree-lined roughs. The landing areas are generous though errant tee shots will be met by stands of mature trees and if you are really off your game, your shot may cross over into the next fairway since many of the holes run parallel to each other. A narrow creek winds alongside several holes and there are a few small ponds that come into play. Steep sand traps also protect the subtly contoured greens. Santiam G.C. has a fair amount of challenges but it is player-friendly enough for beginners and casual golfers to enjoy.

    I've played this course numerous times and have had nothing but a good time.
    The fairways are always cared for well. The greens have good character and vary on speed throughout the year.
    Nice driving range and putting green. Ample parking even when busy.
    Plenty of things to hit or not depending on your ability, I've named several trees.
    Love this course.

    Wow. Some of the previous reviews don't reflect the current Santiam Course. The Course is very playable and well kept. The staff in the pro shop are friendly and helpful. Golf Pro Howard is a good listener and wants to hear concerns.
    I love golfing here along with numerous friends. Always a great experience even when my score doesn't reflect how well I've played.

    It was early in the morning and I was taking care of business, just in time to get 18 holes in because my normal course had a junior tournament that day. I arrived just in time to meet my four some. OK I was only two mintues early but on time. When I paid the pro shop sun spotted man, kept my money and lectured me for a couple of minutes before returning my money owed. He said,"All golfers should be 15 minutes early!?. WOW I said, " I am not late just give me my change and let me on my way". He finally did. While I was out there I saw 3 fivesomes and was even told by a 80 year old marshall to play faster even though there was no one waiting on us and the guys behind us never even asked or understood what the old guy was talkng about. BEWARE the good old boys club still exists, and they are as stupid as they have ever been. Bottom line I am a good golfer, and when you have a golf course that has weeds in the fairways, hard sand, not the real stuff in the bunkers, and ground crews people that don't even have hard hats like OHSA requires or uniforms; DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. They think their shit don't stink, even though you can smell cow shit from the fairways.

    This course is short and the greens are very shaggy and slow. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\have you ever heard the term dog track. I would pay $12.00 to $18.00 but not $42.00 without a cart yikes. It is nowhere near that kind of track. Play Salem GC or McNary or Mallard Creek you will be much happier.
