This is one of the courses in my foursome's rotation. It's the farthest one from Portland that we hit regularly, but it's worth the thirty minute drive.
The main reason we like it is that the course is kept in great shape, and the views of Mt. Hood are amazing. In addition, they run specials during the week that include a cart and lunch.
The course is tough on the average golfer. From the first tee, it doesn't look that bad with the first few holes being wide open with the exception of a few bunkers. Enjoy the start, because shortly after, the course turns into heavily wooded areas that require accurate tee shots.
The back nine is tougher then the front, loaded with some really tough holes that are relatively short but with hazards on both sides. The 18th hole is a fantastic par 5 that is reachable by you big hitters if you can avoid the big fairway bunkers.
I recommend this course for everybody. The greens are big and kept in pristine shape. The lower handicappers will enjoy the challenge of this "target" golf course, and the higher handicappers should definitely take advantage of playing the forward tees.
