HOOD RIVER GOLF COURSE
HOOD RIVER, OR


Hood River Golf & Country ClubHood River Golf Course Oregon
 

Hood River Golf & Country Club is, as it's name would suggest, in the town of Hood River.  We made our way out here to watch the kitesurfers on the river, eat lunch at the Hood River Hotel, and to play a round of golf free with our trusty Entertainment Book.  The course is fun because of the hilly relief, but the wind in the Columbia River Gorge sure does make it tough.  If you're in to guessing the cross-winds and adjusting your game accordingly, then this is a challenge you may want to take on.

HOOD RIVER GOLF COURSE - OUR COMMENTS

Maintenance:  Not really up to country club standards, with lots of brown outside of the fairways and quite a few raw spots on the fairways. 

Scenery: The tree-lined fairways are nicely lined up to give you some wonderful views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams - especially some panoramas of Mt. Hood.  You kind of feel like you're back in the woods at times which is nice and you don't have to see the other golfers that often.  The scenery is broken by patches of plowed farmland and roads on two sides.

Fun: If you like a challenge, this course can be for you.  Between the hills and relief of the course, and the ever-present Columbia River Gorge winds, this course can do damage to your score.   We wished for some water, though, and there weren't very many bunkers.

Safety: This course is pretty isolated on the outskirts of Hood River, and there aren't any roads to cross.  The holes are pretty well laid out so you're not taking any beginner's drives in your face too.  No natural hazards to speak of to fall into.

Staff:  No recollection - guess they must have been decent.

Design: We liked the rolling hills very much, but it seems they could have thrown in some water and some more bunkers.  It's nice that you have a little space to move around - some nice, wide fairways to keep you at a distance from other golfers. 

Value:  For this price, you can play a lot better courses - however, if you're from Hood River or vicinity, there aren't many other choices for economical golf.  They do honor both the Entertainment Book and the Golf Card, so when you consider that you get one free round, then that's pretty darn cheap.

Other Comments:  We'd like to try this one again before long to see what it might be like without 30 mph winds.  The country club restaurant is an old farmhouse - kind of funky, but it fits.  Great views of Mt. Hood from pretty much everywhere.
