Challenging course and great food

The course itself is challenging and fun. Briggs is awesome as well, and cooks up some mean burgers and sandwiches in addition to always being friendly and helpful. Went out and played a rainy and wet day, so any flawed course conditions were not the fault of anyone but mother nature and myself for being a crazy enough looney tune to get out and play 18 in 50 degrees and rain! XD

1st visit to Beacon Rock

Had a great 1st time. Desk and kitchen staff were quite friendly. Fun course. Not long but a few good dog legs and some water to make it interesting. Will come back especially for $15 for 9 including cart on a Friday late afternoon! A bargain!

A fun/interesting course to play

Don't be fooled by the slope rating on this course. There are some very interesting/challenging holes to play.
The scenery is spectacular.
I believe this is a family owned course, and the staff/owners couldn't be nicer or more accommodating.

Nice relaxed course

Beacon Rock is a nice course that is good for beginners and fun for golfers with a little more skills. It is relaxed and not "overly uppity". The staff is beyond friendly. Great place and we will play again

Nice 9 holer

Some would say this course has character, others would say it needs TLC.

Overall, it is a decent layout for 9 holes. Nice combo of tight and open holes. While the majority of the course had average conditions, the greens all were quite nice.

# 4 is very quirky hole...par 5 of 390 from white tees, then when you switch to blues it is a par 4? It is a very tight a curving hole, hard to describe unless you play it.

Course is a little rough

It’s hard to really capture the essence of this 9 hole course. Some fairways had small rolling hills all along which made the gas powered golf windshield bump steadily along the metal frame for 18 holes. This is definitely country golfing where large gravel trails amble their way alongside each fairway. Most of the greens have at least some crabgrass in a place or two. Played the course in 2 hours. Nice setting. Course maintenance could be better. Nice setting.

Tight fairways

Beautiful setting in the Columbia gorge. Some of the fairways are extremely tight, added to the pleasure of this course. Greens are a little rough, but great deal for the price.

Great Laid Back Course

This is a great place to play a laid back round of golf. Beautiful scenery and excellent friendly staff, at a good price. They also have a restaurant which I did not try but looked good and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this course for a fun day of golf.

Nice course

The staff was very friendly and helpful We played at 7:10 am, not 2:20 pm. The course was in fairly nice condition. Some of the greens were a little rough but overall a decent course. The value was excellent.

Perfect Morning

I played 18 holes here in the morning. It was a good challenge. The fairways are pretty narrow on some of the holes so it made it interesting even with some of the shorter distances.
I had a breakfast sandwich at the turn that was good and the staff was very welcoming.
I would recommend Beacon Rock.

Fun Day with Friendly People

Tee off at 9:30, right on time. Never rushed and never waited too long for next shot. Lunch on the turn was a daily special Fish & Chips. Very good!

$9 Round and Still Not Worth It!

The People: Very rude staff and locals who go out of their way to make you feel unwelcome.

The Course: Poorly maintained, downed trees covering the course, and the worst putting greens I've ever seen - chewed up w/ longer grass than fairways.

The low price brought me there, but after playing, even $9 was too much for what you get at Beacon Rock. Needless to say, we won't be back!

Thank you for returning to play our course again on April 21st. We were glad to have you back so soon. Please accept my apology for any of our staff if they made you feel unwelcome. Our policy is quite the opposite. We thank all of our players for coming out to our course. Yes, conditions were less than we expect our crew to deliver but given the unique challenges of this record breaking winter we are doing our best. Snow covered the course for 8 weeks all the way into Spring. During that period there was an Ice Storm covering all branches and limbs with 1 ½” of ice. That put 40% of all trees on the ground. It’s been a huge task to clean up and repair. The course is back in shape and greens have fully recovered. Sincerely, Mark Mayfield

Special to me

My dad help build the scores back in the 60s/70s??? It is hometown and beloved to me. It used to be in immaculate condition but the last couple of years have gone downhill a bit. Still beautiful nine hole course with the second set of teeth for 18 and it reasonable rate.

Easy course with just enough danger to make it fun.

We played in early October. Course was dry with no soft areas. We almost had the course to ourselves. The greens don't have true green grass that most courses have. It looks like fescue or rye grass. It was mowed short and made for good putting.
We stopped at the turn and had lunch. Great food and the prices we very reasonable. Staff was great and friendly. My wife is a beginning golfer so this is a good course for her. Can't wait to go back.
