Portland Golf Club

7000 yrd

Much to the dismay of the driver-loving bombers in our group, Portland Golf Club isn’t going to reward distance anytime soon.  Instead, accuracy and deft touch are required to navigate this prestigious private club.

Formerly home to the Portland Open, a PGA Tour event won by the likes of Ben Hogan, a round at Portland Golf Club feels like stepping back in time. 

Even though a couple guys in our group made a bushel of birdies, no one came close to breaking par.  That’s mostly due to greens that resemble uncovered dinosaur burial grounds and run at 12’ on the Stimp meter. 

The members say that a round without a three-putt is the key to scoring.  Safe to say no one in our group could lay claim to that accomplishment. Portland Golf Club won’t disappoint those lucky enough to score a reciprocal round.  Just be sure you hit plenty of practice putts before you peg it on the first tee.
