What are those smooth red berries growing on what looks like blackberry vines?
Rosehips? Cotoneaster?

Can't remember but that was not the name. I think it was east of I-5 just a bit in a basic neighborhood.

BTW, I really, really hope to play at Dexter this September. It's still my fave OR course!

Looking like rosehips. Do roses grow wild in and amongst the blackberries.

Wild roses (Rosa nutkana) do grow throughout Oregon, yes. Here's a nice pic of the rosehips, if it helps:

If you want a bigger tourney experience, the Eugene Celebration will be at Dexter and Stewart Pond September 8th and 9th. Or if you just wanted to play Dexter, make sure to avoid those two days (the course will be closed).

If you are ever in the Eugene area, I'd be happy to give you a tour of a local course or two, too.

Pier was my favorite of the weekend, and one of my favorite course I've ever played. Without question my favorite wooded course. While Hornings had some epic holes, I did not care for the golf overall. Glad I played those-would never play again. Of that style, I actually liked LL Stub Stewart a little more. Needed one more day.

I'm glad you enjoyed Portland. Pier is definitely amazing, and your thoughts on it echo what many ppl (myself included) feel about that course. I also really like LL Stub. Both are great courses
Did u make it to Milo?

No, that tournament situation derailed that idea.

What else did you play?

I love having Pier as my home course. I will never ever tire of it.

16 holes at Blue Lake, the two highest rated at Horning's Hideout and L.L. Stub Stewart because that other course out that way was also having a tournament. I had a bounce and glide at Stub Stewart down a hill so bad I almost didn't even try to go find it lol

Yeah, Pier as a home course would be pretty sweet.
