Portland >Golf > Eastmoreland Golf Course
A must play for Oregon Golfers.... Eastmoreland is one of the great Portland area courses, if you haven't played there yet, you need to. For how cheap it is, it's always in good shape, and it's tricky enough to be a challenge for players of any handicap. Is this course on the level of a Pumpkin-Ridge or Langdon Farms... no, of course not... but it is non-the-less a historic Portland track that you should definetely play. And any golf enthusiasts interested in witnessing a massecre can come out this Sunday (May 18th) to watch me pummel my friend and long time golf-nemesis Marc "Porkchop" P. there in a high-stakes, high level match!
Great back nine. Slow play here..
Great visual experience if you don?t play the front 9 boring. The back 9 is beautiful with good golf holes. Nice water holes and course was in good condition. The starter had the personality of a dead tree and made me feel I was bothering him. Can be really busy and slow but I do well playing there around 1pm. Don?t even bother late afternoon as people get off work and pack the place.
With all my negativity the back 9 is a must play.
This well-kept course is one of the city's most popular..
Eastmoreland's front side is mostly flat, and though it has the most difficult holes, it lacks the variety--and water--of the back. Play during peak hours can become tedious--walking is the predominant mode of transportation. The 416-yard seventh is a par-4 overhung with oak branches on a narrow fairway. The easiest hole is the par-3 12th. At 165 yards across water, it's no bargain, but the green is long and there's room to miss--if you don't mind sand.
Number of holes: 18
Yardage: 6529 (championship)

Slow, poor upkeep, did I mention slow?.
Had a pretty poor experience there. Slowest round of golf I've played in some time (almost 6 hours!). No course marshalls anywhere to keep up pace. There was a fivesome ahead of us...Are we in Mississippi?
The only yardage markers were the 150 stakes, some tee boxes had no signs to indicate distance or hole location.
Greens and fairways were only in so-so condition. Front nine had a rather uninspired design. Back nine a little better.
Very challenging layout.
NO WAY this course is better than Langdon Farms...
Great public golf. Best public course in Portland for the $$. Wonderful greens.
Challenging course. One of the toughest courses I have played. Great conditions and friendly staff. The greens are tricky, and there are lots of water hazards on the second nine. Recommend this course to anyone up for a challenge.
Not your typical public course. Fun course with lots of challenge. Better condition than most course I have played in the area. A bargain for the money.
Love the course but..... I think Eastmoreland is a great golf course, but the pace of play has dramaticly slowed in the last few years. It takes at least 6 hours to play 18 unless you are there mid-morning, mid-week. Frount nine is pretty straight forward, back is much more interesting. It's a great value, and I would play here all the time if the pace picked up a little.
mudhole. This course is okay during summer--hole #7 is a challenge and the back side plays tough. Stay far away from this course during the winter months unless you have mudders on your golf cart.
OK for a City course. Eastmoreland is a decent enough course for a City course, but can't compete with Langdon Farms, Tukwila, or even Heron Lakes. This course should not be number 3 on the list, maybe 9 or 10.
