Good time

The course was in good shape not to wet well drained. I have played this course a lot and still find it challenging. It's a must play.

Good day considering

Considering the greens being recently punched, the course was in condition. Pace of play was good in the AM. I appreciate this course and it’s variety of holes.

Greenback Heron Lakes

Greens were in great condition, there were a number of areas near the edge of fairways that needed some attention. (thin to no grass and not watered) Overall probably the best value in Portland. Pace of play was good, 4 hours on the dot, but I have seen it slower at times. Once again, the greens are great for a city owned course, smooth, and decent speed.

Slow Pace

The pace of play was about 5:30 which is slow. Too many people on the course with no marshal.

I like this link style layout. It’s not as long as other courses, only 4-5 miles if walking which about 50% do.
