Heron Lakes Great Blue Golf Course

7016 yrd

There are two courses at Heron Lakes but the Great Blue is considered the ball buster among Portland’s municipal tracks.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones II, this track isn’t overly long at just 7,016 yards but, it’s small greens and fescue-lined fairways demand your absolute best from tee to green. 

We played this special track on an especially windy afternoon and our group made as many doubles as birdies. 

Having played this course once, we’d definitely play it again.  However, we don’t recommend it for a casual date with your significant other or any high handicapper for that matter. 

Bottom line is, if you’re a decent player and want to test yourself, the Great Blue is a must play.  For everyone else, the Greenback is a great golf course and will provide a fun experience for players of all levels.
