Chehalem is definetly a challeging course! Although if you have never played there make sure you know that on many holes you have to lay up. We were very disappointed with the score card because you had no idea what was ahead like the creeks, valleys and hills. I recommend taking a cart although it can be walked just know that the holes 7 and 9 are far apart and you need to keep up with people in carts. Chehalem needs to get a better score card or GPS in thier carts so you know what the course lay out is. On the 9th hole we had no idea where the green was and that it dog legs left over a creek and then up a hill. In other words you cant see the green until your 50 yds off. Its a beautiful course just take note that the only info on the score card is all the drops on holes 1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12, and 14. Im pleased to say that I didnt use any drops and was happy with a score of 92 :) Also thought the club house personel could have been more friendly and let us know some of the holes to be weary of and when returning our cart the kid had us drive it all the way down to the garage and walk back up the hill to the parking lot~at least we got a deal from living social $25. wont go back to pay thier fees

This public golf course is as challenging and well maintained as a Country Club. If you are a hacker use the forward tees on holes 5, 6, 9, 10, 11. 12, and 14. Hole 12 is a par 5. Even Tiger Woods would lay up on this hole. The second shot requires a 175 yd carry to make it over the ravine. If you cant hit a fairway shot that far save your ball. Take a 2 stroke penalty and use the drop zone on the other side of the ravine. Most sunny days a cart provides refreshments including beer and hot dogs plus most other fare. The front nine is very playable for the hacker. I am a senior and this is my favorite course. You can hide your beer if that is your choice but the rule is buy the beer from the course. The search your bag comment is silly. The course fees are reasonable with lots of lower cost tee times and week day specials. Check the Chehalem Glenn website and get your tee times online if you like. The high slope rating on this course is due to the carry on holes 5, 10, and 12. The drop zones solve this problem for me. I love going for it anyway. When I make it... Well it keeps me coming back for more.
We had no problem at all with the staff and did not have our bags searched. This course is very well maintained and is quite challenging as indicated by the rating and slope. There is a really good mix of what makes the course fun and challenging. From water hazards to gullies and elevation changes to dog legs the course keeps you on your toes. Many of the holes demand well hit tee shots as you hit over multiple gullies and other hazards. I only wish this course was closer to Portland. For those of you who have played some of the Porltand courses, I would rate this course between Heron Lakes (blue course) and Pumpkin Ridge.
This is a great challenging golf course. It is in great condition, has enough electric carts, as well as a few of the stand up carts. They have a pitching practice area that has a large bunker which is nice. They allow you to borrow a cart to get down to it as well. The only think I dont like about it is you always have to hit off mats. This isnt good for the joints of the body and leaves your clubs green at the end of your session. They also always seem to have trouble with their computer system going down and having to restart it.
The course was fine but the experience was negative because the course marshal pestered us 3 separate times to play faster. We played as fast as we could, but third time we were told to "pick up the pace," even though the party behind us wasnt caught up, and we were actually having to wait for the party in front of us. The third time crossed the line. A big part of the fun in golf is relaxing and enjoying the course and the outdoors, and but that wasnt possible with their marshal pressuring us.

I just love tis course! It offers a wonderful taste of Oregons beautiful countryside on the cusp of wine country while also delivering a challenge set of holes. It does not have the amenities of a huge Club House and restaurant - but I think this adds to its small town charm. It is not ostentatious - just a great, solid game of golf. They just started offering their golf pro tips in videos for each hole. This is a game-changer for me. Like having the golf pro in my cart. very innovative!

No club house. They inspect every bag you bring onto the course. They act like police, no customer service at all, and that was when we first checked in. We opt to not even play and left, drove all the way back to Hillsboro and played McKay ~ awesome time great 18 and saved $40.00 (Justin needs to be fired or retrained as he has zero personality) sad, as the course looked great. From Palm Springs and play all over, too bad for the owners!!! Bad choice in hiring staff.
Great course, always in good shape. Only drawback is pace of play. Today for example, we made the turn after waiting on these guys almost the whole front nine, and there they were on the #10 tee with no one on the hole in front of them and they were discussing tee height! (We had even stopped at the club house for drinks). Just saying that some ready golf etiquette could be more encouraged so that more people could finish their round before dark.
There is a club house. From the tips the course is not for the lighted-hearted, especially played in off-season. Play it with management in mind and be happy with par. Bring snacks - the hills will deplete your energy fast. The most difficult are the first 5 holes on the back nine. Its a great course if you respect it. I suspect the bags that were inspected in first review were the brown paper kind. Few courses allow you to BYOB. Have fun!
We went here to golf using the golf boards, and I would not recommend them. The board that I had had a damaged throttle, so I had to turn the board off to get the board to stop. Unfortunately this did not occur until after the first hole so I stuck with it for the rest of the time. From a course perspective, I would give 4 stars. The course was well maintained and I enjoyed the layout on most holes.
Challenging and beautiful course! Pros: excellent golf course for intermiediate to experienced golfers, good rates, usually not too busy...greens are either excellent or terrible! good practice facilities. Cons: not good for beginners. Pro shop is weak, food is super basic.
Depends on what you like. If you play it in the summer then Its probably fine. In the Spring though it is pretty wet and you will want to adopt a plugged ball rule. Also its a goat trail to walk so you better be in shape. But the greens are good.
