Stone Creek Golf Club

Stone Creek was designed by Peter Jacobson and Jim Hardy and opened for public play in June of 2002. The course has matured into one of the most beautiful and diverse courses in the Portland area. The course is scenically designed and offers spectacular views of Mt. Hood. The course is laid out over 165 acres of land with old-growth Douglas Firs, lakes, four wetlands, and forty-three bunkers. The front nine is more links-style while the back nine has more of a Northwest feel with tree lined fairways and elevation changes. In 2009, Links magazine voted Stone Creek #8 in the country for Environmentally Friendly Courses.
