Could be an amazing course if their grounds were maintained better. Great scenery, grass range.

Love Emerald Valley Golf

Built in 1964 along the coast fork of the Willamette River, Emerald Valley Golf Club is now maturing into the gem of a course/resort that most people always could see that it could be. All it took was someone with the dedication, foresight and bankroll to make it happen, and the beginning of that all took place in 2002. Recently added new drainage, state of the art sprinkler system, newly rebuilt and in many cases lengthened tee boxes, about 30 new bunkers and possibly the best practice area located on any course in Oregon, which includes all the private courses, this course is truly living up to it’s name as a beautiful place to enjoy a round of golf.

Along with what to me are some of the best and toughest greens from hole 1 to 18 that you will find, it is simply a terrific place to play and depending on which set of tees you choose to play will challenge every player from the beginner to professionals. One of the changes they also made is to flip the 9’s from how they’ve played for at least the last 20 years, which means you start out on a much easier 1st hole than if you were starting on what is now #11. Even as tough as this course can be to play, one can score on it if you think about your shots before you hit them. Almost every green on the course slopes downhill from back to front, and so it is vitally important to keep the ball below the pin on your approach shot, or be faced with the prospect of rolling by the hole and be farther away than where you started. The greens are always quick, rolling from 9-12 on the stemp meter, but roll very true and will challenge the best of putting skill if going downhill or side hill. Several holes stick out in my mind as both a challenge and fun to play, starting with the 405yard par 4 4th hole, which is a dogleg left with a huge tree on the corner of the fairway, but now they have added 3 large bunkers on the right corner, so accuracy becomes even more of a premium off the tee. Then you get to hit to one of the most severe sloped, 3 tiered greens you will find in Oregon. If you find the pin in the middle to top of the green, and you end up above the hole, you can literally be faced with the prospect of your ball rolling off the front of the very large green, and can easily get a 3-4 putt hole here. Club selection is vital obviously. The newly rebuilt 11th hole is now a 211 yard par 3 from the tips, which now has the lake that was on the right side coming clear around to the front of the large green. From the front of the green to the back can be a difference of 2 clubs off the tee. The 13th hole, a 555 yard monster from the tips, dogleg right is one of my favorite holes in the state of Oregon, both for its enjoyment to play, but also for its shear beauty. The length of the hole runs next to the Willamette River, and it’s not unusual to see deer on this fairway that is lined with as big of trees on both sides as are on the course. Keep the ball left, if you go right you will be very hard pressed to find a par on this hole.
From there you get one of the toughest par 4’s you will find anywhere, a 453yard dogleg par 4 with tall woods on both sides of the fairway, water on the left edge of the landing area and then to the right side of the green that rises to maybe 20’ above your stance from where you drive landed. In the afternoon the wind can often be blowing into your face, and with the wind and elevation change your second shot will play 1-2 clubs longer than you think. The par 3 17th hole is another of those holes with rebuilt tees, and now stretches to 181 from the tips, across a pond with another severely sloped green, and when the wind is blowing, always into your face, sometimes it is almost impossible to guess which club you should choose.

If you find yourself traveling to Eugene/Springfield area, with your clubs, and if you have the time, make sure and get some tee times at Emerald Valley, you will not be disappointed and will come away
