Muddy

Fairways were hard to make out from the rough and the whole course was a mud bogged.

Terrible Greens

Of all the public courses in the Portland/Vancouver area this one would rank close to the bottom. Who in the middle of peak season, summer/heat wave sands their greens? Just plain stupid. Ball marks every where. They don’t care because the sheep keep paying . Their location is ideal for the densely populated area of Portland. For the price it would be better to play Tri-Mountain in Ridgefield, Wa. Greens are far superior to this dirty, dumpy course.

Greenback in AUG

The course was in great condition. More challenging then I remember. I usually play the Great Blue. There were a lot of great holes, trouble all over. Many fairway bunkers. Some of the iron play to the greens was picturesque, two tier greens, lots of bunkers. Nice. Like any public golf course, some of the greens had many unfixed divots. Tee time was 2.30, play was fast. 4.15. I wish i knew the course better. You could hit less than driver on a lot of holes. I will be back. Thanks.

Warm Day

We’ve had a stretch of warm weather and the fairways ran fast. The greens in general were firm making it tough to get at some of the pins, yet a few greens were receptive to approach shots and would hit and stick.

All in all the course played well and is a fair test. 18 holes in 4:15
