Portland / Tacoma Courses


Recommended Posts

Going on a trip this summer, hoping to get a round in
I'll be going on a trip to the Northwest this summer and I was wondering if it was worth it to lug my clubs with me from Hawaii. I'll be staying in Forest Grove, near Portland, then Tacoma. Any good courses in the area? I know there's Bandon Dunes but the green fees are a little steep and it's kind of far.
Thanks,
Tracy

Around Tacoma you'll find the following courses are within a 30 minute drive. All of these are off the charts fantastic and VERY reasonably priced. They would all be $100 - $150 in CA or AZ. I would definitely bring your sticks!

 

1) Gold Mountain in Bremerton, WA. Play the Olympic Course -- host of the 2006 USGA Men's Pub Links Championship (sans Michelle Wie) -- www.goldmt.com

 

2) Trophy Lake Golf in Port Orchard, WA - www.trophylakegolfclub.com

 

3) McCormick Woods Golf Club - www.mccormickwoodsgolf.com/

 

4) Washington National in Auburn, WA - home to the University of Washington teams -- just held the NCAA Women's West Regionals -- www.washingtonnationalgolfclub.com

 

Gold Mountain, Trophy Lake and McCormick Woods are all very close together and would make a great 54 hold loop. Hope this helps!

I just saw your post from last week. I live near Forest Grove and have played all the courses in the area.

 

Public courses:

Forest Hills in Hillsboro -- great lay out, would be terrific if they spent more money on upkeep. $$

Quail Valley in Banks --- nice course but very wide open $$

The Reserve in Hillsboro -- upscale public access. Both courses are in great shape but both have a couple ticky-tack holes that detract from the layout. $$$

Gerhart in Gearhart, Or -- about 90 minutes away on the coast. Lists itself as oldest USA course west of the Missippi. Fun layout.....plays like an ocean links course. Very deep pot bunkers that always seem to get in your way. $$

Pumpkin Ridge (Ghost Creek) in North Plains -- the best plublic access course in the area. Was in the Top 100 nationally until a couple of years ago. $$$$

 

Thant should get you started....

Meriweather National west of Hillsboro is close to Forest Grove and has recently made huge improvements to the conditions at their 3 nines according to my father. If you head to the beach (60 miles west of forrest grove) stop by and play the Highlands (home of Discoutdansgolf.com) our ocean view course is small and well maintained and I guarantee it will kick your butt. We are 1 mile North of Gearhart Golf Links so plan on playing 27 holes.
