Majestic

Course is one of the ones not by a highway, train, or airport so all you hear are birds and golfers. Friendly staff and beautiful course layout. I enjoy these courses.

Great place to golf

Great area for golfing with forest setting. The course has no driving range so they use a hitting net to warm up. Their net needs to be fixed because balls hit into this can go thru the net and most are lost. Their eating area was closed so ;the restroom is a porta potty.

Great day for golf

Course conditions were marginal. Very damp. Fairways looked like they had not been mowed in at least a couple of days. Greens were ok.

Mountain Gem

The Resort at Mount Hood courses are absolute jewels in the Portland area. The views are spectacular with tree covered mountains and pristine creeks running through.

The farther back you play the more beautiful the landscapes, you will not forget this course as it is one of the best mountain courses anywhere.

The elevated Tee box on Pine Cone is a thrill to hit.

Worth an annual trek to the mountain

On a hotdeal this works but at regular rates.... not so much. Has to be tough conditions to keep a course in top shape with the year round weather so you can't expect a perfectly maintained course.... and it isn't. Greens are slow and bumpy. Traps are below average. Aprons are a mess and the fairways are extremely bumpy but it is a beautiful place to spend the day.

LAZY STAFF - NO INTEREST IN GOLFERS

We play this course a couple of times each year and always look forward to the next Tee Time. We brought guest from NM and looked forward to sharing what has always been a great golfing experience.
The Mallard Room was having the roof repaired, so it and all amities were closed. The course looked like a hay field, it was mowed long and grass left. Maintenance crews had not been maintaining the course.
It was 93 degrees, at the turn we visited the pro shop, no restrooms, HOT porta-pots out doors, no water to dip towels or wash balls. Indoors it was difficult to pull the 3 mature men away from the competition on the TV. When asked if they had any ice, they mentioned The restaurant being closed but ice was down the street. The cooler for cold drinks had WARM Gatorade, I pulled from the back thinking the new was stock at the front of the cooler ... the 3 LAZY men offered that they had just filled the cooler, it must have been during a commercial. My only thought is, without the restaurant no one cares about the course. Small gestures of "we appreciate you business" such as cooler with ice and water, water bucket etc would have been appreciated. We will think twice before making the drive to Welches to golf when there are so many good coursed to choose from.

Great hidden gem

Enjoyed my day at the resort at the mountain. Both Pinehollow and Thistle courses were very well manicured. Foxglove had some issues with some greens and tea boxes but overall was in good condition. Really enjoyed this course and it’s usually not packed so pace is great.

Great time!

It was a great day of golf, course is always beautiful I feel bad though for it because it doesn’t get enough sun, the greens were extremely rough but I expect that this time of year. But the rates were spot on and I play it again any day.
