I was pleasantly surprised by the conditions of the course. The greens seem to have been lightly sanded and fertilized leaving a my putter sandy and spotted with a white substance. Ball rolled well o the green and never plugged in the fairways. Very good day overall, it’s what I have grown to expect at PDX public courses.
The course has a nice a layout
There are enough doglegs to make it intersting.
Probably better in the Summer
My dad and I played the course for the 1st time. Course layout was pretty good and the pace of play was good. And that’s pretty much the end of the good things I can say.
The course was in pretty rough shape. Lots of deep cart ruts and soft spots on the course, which didn’t really effect play, but it looked pretty ragged. When we went to check in with the starter, he wasn’t there so we walked up to the tee box. He comes back right before we tee off, so out of courtesy I go to check in. He tells me that he just sent a group in front of us at our start time even tho it was still 10 minutes before our start time and tells me, “well you better hurry up because we have another group coming in,” too bad that group was scheduled to start 10min after our start time.
Honestly, I bet the course is pretty nice in the late spring, summer and, early fall, but for my first impression, I would have liked more. I’ll probably give it another chance in May, tho.
What a perfect course to play on a beautiful day. The greens were quick, the fairways amazing and the company great! I would have to say it was dry if I ventured off the fairway. Great job overall!
Rose City is a solid track, with some good doglegs to deal with, the staff is friendly and the course was in pretty good condition when we played. They have two temporary greens set up on the back 9 as they are doing work, the one on the par 3 15th was fine, the one on 18 was atrocious to use. They compensate by making the hole the size of a basketball. It's that time of year though, so you can't really complain about that.
My biggest complaint with the course is that they don't have a driving range so I always feel like it takes me a while to get going.
The pace was phenomenal today and we got done in under four hours.
Another great Portland Muni
Great to play Rose City again. Course was in great shape but the greens had been recently sanded and plugged so they were slow and the ball hopped around a lot. Another week or two and it'll be fine.
needs maintenance BAD
The next time they aerated the greens they need to learn how to either Rick or sweep some of the sand. I have never before had to play on the greens with my sandwich in place of my putter. Horrific
Greens Maintenance is Needed
Overall - the course layout is OK, Staff is fine.
Needs Improvement - the fairways appeared to not have been mowed in several days, the greens were sand - although having the greens sanded is understandable - BUT - their was an excessive amount of sand on many, and the sand was not evenly spread. On many greens - several areas had sand like it was a bunker! Need to re-think - re-train how the sand is distributed on the greens
Definitely a Muni Course
This course is probably my least favorite course in Portland. The facilities are lackluster, and the layout is not exciting in the slightest. My recent outing included us being rushed out off the tees even though the group in front of us was still in the middle of the fairway and we were held up for the whole round. Add shirtless man in the group in front of us, and a group of five holding up the round as well. Only play here when there are no other options available.
The Rose of Rose City
It's been several years since I played this beautiful muni course. There's a wide variety of holes, all surrounded by huge old pine and fir trees. This course can at times be too wet, like almost all Portland courses, but it was firm, fast and rolling today. The greens were in excellent shape, and slightly slow. Pace of play allowed our foursome to finish in 3 hrs and 40 minutes.
Enjoyed the course very much. Played with two gentlemen who made the day that much more enjoyable. Overall course was decent, pace of play just right. Will play again. A very enjoyable round.
Late August golf
Water is the key to life and a beautiful golf course. The fairways are in great condition and so are the greens. After recently playing at Pumpkin Ridge, Rose city looked great for the money!
Old Time Pdx Course
I've played this course for over 50 years. They keep it in great shape. We paid in advance online. One of our members had to rush his father to the ER that morning & could not join us. The staff was incredible gracious and gave us a "rain check" for our friend who could not join us. Thank you very much for the gentleman behind the desk for his understanding. Great customer service. Thank You Sir ! I highly recommend this course.
It's well maintained & a great piece of history of Portland.
Thank You !
