In 1928, two golfing enthusiasts - Ralph Shattuck and George Waale leased Bill Welch's hayfield and had a nine-hole golf course built. In 1939 the golf course reverted back to Billy and he continued to operate the resort until his death in 1942.
The Pine Cone Nine was built in 1928 by town founder, Billy Welch, Pine Cone is the fourth oldest course in Oregon. Measuring 3,299 yards and playing to par 36. Its distinctive feature is the Wee Burn stream.
In 1948 Eugene Bowman acquired it. Eugene and his wife Peggy owned Bowman's for the next 30 years, adding an additional nine holes of golf.
The Thistle Nine was constructed in the mid-1960s, Thistle has undergone the most dramatic facelift. While measuring only 2,956 yards and playing to a par 34, its hazards on seven of the nine holes reward golfers who best manage their game.
In 1973 American Guaranty Financial Corporation purchased land across Welches Road from Bowman's and built a lodge, a conference facility, a restaurant, more rental units. In 1979 it purchased Bowman's Resort, merging the two properties and naming it Rippling River Resort.
The Foxglove Nine first opened for play in 1981. Foxglove is considered the most challenging of the three 9-hole tracks, measuring 3,106 yards. It plays to a par 36. An extra sleeve of golf balls is suggested when playing this course!
Ed and Janice Hopper bought the resort in 1989 and transformed it into The Resort at The Mountain. With their remodeling efforts came the Scottish theme and tradition. With The Resort's recent sale in December, 2007 begins its latest chapter in its golf and lodging history.

I thought the course was a good challenge for the bogey golfer. Course is tight, but fair and I am trying to figure out when I am going back. 2nd time around I think a person could score on the course.
