Pros: Here's another isolated and woodsy summer-camp course that gives you an option for an extended break on the way to Oregon Gardens, Silver Falls, etc.
Utilizing a lot of the existing camp fields and byways, the course plays well already by not having been cut new from the forest as a lot of Taloali was. There's plenty of mature trees on the field edges, and the undergrowth is brushy enough to disc-hunt a bit if you're more than a few feet off the fairway. It also has an urban farm feel, playing first near the bunkhouses and office, then near the paintball course, zipline, jungle gym and lake. Drift Creek provides good risk on a few holes when the water gets up Nov.-May.
#s1-3 throw west and slightly downhill through fields paralleling the creek, with scattered alders, maples and pine obscuring some lanes and the creek fairly close to pin #3.
Climb the hill to
#s4-7, which rise and descend in a field recently reclaimed from blackberries[watch for ankle-high bushes] with a pine or orchard tree thrown in here and there..
#8 throws steeply, narrowly downhill through trees and dense underbrush to a pin near the camo bible bus.
#9 continues downcreek in a large field to an elevated pin not far from the zipline anchor.
Trot across the footbridge to
#10, which drives from inside a gazebo across a large field to a pin by the fort/gymnasium, next to the creek.
Plod uphill to
#11, which is a long dropping left hand turn with a low ceiling near the end.
#12 resembles greatly the #8 downhill descent, but finishes in a grassy fenced corral.
#13 drives across an open field with hanging limbs giving lefties the business.
#14 rises in the open to a basket perched riskily at the lip of the lake retention dam.
#s15-16 both drive across the lake, #15 with more water and #16 with a more uphill finish.
#17 drives a lane with the hill of the entrance road crossing halfway down, and the creek on the right.
#18 throws directly across the creek through large pines to a basket at the back of a large field.
Cons: Holes in the ground where the teepads should be[soon to be rectified].
The only signs were laminates from a tourney. No next tee signs except for walk-ups.
Once these are done the course will gain a full point on this review.
Summer is an iffy time to play-the camp is very busy then.
Other Thoughts: Stores a couple miles back in Silverton. Remember, its a Christian equestrian camp [hale and hearty horsepeople about!], so no alcohol/drug indulgences.
