Just a gorgeous course

Set high above the Columbia River, in the Columbia River Gorge this course has vistas every where you look. The course is very up and down and the generous greens are heavily sculpted. They roll fast and true and no putt is a gimme. Per the scorecard it has a slope of 112 but that is ridiculous. There's a fair amount of sand both fairway and around the greens. Water on only 3 holes but there's plenty of trouble to be found is you wander too far from the fairway.

Carson hot springs "Elk Ridge"

The most beautiful course people don't even seem to know about. Always available always in terrific shape. Very challenging with some fascinating greens with slopes and mounds and speed. Gem of a golf course with annual memberships available for tremendous price. Always dry year round. Absolutely beautiful drive between Oregon and Washington states along the river to get there. Highly recommended.

Hidden Gem

I think this might be the best course for your money in SW Washington. I will drive 45 minutes each way to play this course 10 out of 10 times. Pace of play is always good, course is wide open but greens that will challenge your game. Fun place to play

Double Booked Tee Time

Every time we’ve played here this summer (4-5 times) tee times have been double booked. I’ve even contacted the pro shop to confirm the GolfNow times. My two groups ended up having to go off the back, but couldn’t complete the round when the turn to the front was too stacked up. While the pro shop acknowledged that “there’s a problem with the system”,, they were unaccommodating when it can to resolving the mess. Bad experience for my two groups & handled poorly be the staff. A full refund would have been appropriate.

Almost heaven

This may be the most beautiful course we play here in the greater Portland area. Conditions were great but the greens are challenging. Wish we could play here more often so we'd know the holes better but at about an hour away we only get here once or twice a year. The restaurant was closed and not everyone wore masks.

UNSAFE

The course layout is good, some great views. Greens are good.
The 1 Star rating is because the Management does NOT care about their Customers. They do not wear masks. Which means they do not care if they give you COVID.
