Speed and condition of greens are signature aspects. Fast and smooth. Many high level tournaments and qualifiers played here. Mature tree lined fairways can frustrate, so you must hit fairways-very difficult to 'gouge' your way out of trouble. If there are any negatives, they would be the wet bunkers and speed of play. Great staff, food, practice facilities and ambience.

Fairways are tight, but well groomed all year round. Greens are the best for 100 miles in any direction; run 8-12, usually rolled, undulating and raised.

Very good course. I play often. Played 30 years at Eugene Country Club and this course is just about as good.

The owner has done much to improve course. The course is regaining popularity with locals, deservedly so.
