With deer, geese and other game on the peripheral, Golf Course Designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. does a magnificent job creating the Woodlands Golf Course. With pristine conditions from tee to green, its hard not to cherish the beauty of the trees (the course is called Woodlands after all) merging together into the blue Oregon sky.

Woodlands Golf Course – Hazards Ahead

 

With multiple hazards to avoid, the Woodlands Golf Course can bring out the best or worst in any golfer. The elevation really lets you hammer the ball, so chose your club carefully or you may end up in serious trouble. The Par 72 course is a challenge, but as my playing partners showed, a truly skilled golfer can walk off the 18th with an impressive score.
