This course is a favorite among Portland golfers. However you'd never know it was such a heavily played public course due to its immaculate condition. You'll find plenty of water hazards, old trees and other challenges along the 6,508-yard track. Surrounding the course are Johnson Creek, Crystal Springs Lake and Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. The city championship traditionally takes place here. The great conditions and beautiful layout aren't the real reason it's so popular with locals. The real reason is the budget-friendly price. It can get crowded, but you will practically have the course to yourself on a weekday morning. Tee-times are taken up to a week in advance.
