Chehalem Glenn Golf Club sprawls across beautifully hilly terrain, providing a course that is not for the faint of heart. The course is defined by the dramatic changes in elevation, which can make it tough to walk. The steep hills make this a tough golf course even for low handicappers. Uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies abound and you’ll also face forced carries to narrow landing areas as well as blind layup shots.
The more open front nine is player friendly and the back nine is where it gets tougher with mostly tree-lined holes and more strategically placed bunkers. The golf course is as scenic as it is challenging with elevated tees and greens that overlook the surrounding hills and valleys. The beauty and difficulty of the course has built Chehalem Glenn Golf Club’s reputation as one of the greater Portland area’s must-play courses.
