Columbia Edgewater Country Club is said to be home to more single-digit handicappers than any golf course west of the Mississippi River.
As we warmed up the range before our round, the surrounding swings resembled a tour event. We are good players but damn, we weren’t about to challenge anyone around us to a $20 Nassau.
Columbia Edgewater Country Club is an iconic Pacific Northwest parkland golf course. Its design is straightforward and not overly long. Accuracy and shot making are a must and, the greens are sloped and quick.
Even though nothing unworldly stands out about this track, it’s easy to see why so many great players call it home. It’s a stern, yet fair test that rewards well played shots, and punishes poor ones.
Our money game was tied after 18 holes so we decided to double the stakes, grab a drink, and head to the nine-hole Mason par three course. This little gem proved unbelievable as our wedge games and short games (or lack thereof) were on full display.Setting up a reciprocal round is well worth it at this iconic private club set near the Columbia River. Just make sure you don’t gamble with the members.
