Resting in the picturesque Salmon River Valley in the shadow Mt. Hood, Mt. Hood Oregon Resort is one of Oregon’s 7 Golf Gems and the state’s very first golf resort, established in 1928.
Today, players can piece together 18 holes from three separate nines — Thistle (more forgiving), Pine Cone (moderately difficult) and Foxglove (the most challenging). All three nines are great for walkers. If you visit in the fall, be on the lookout for spawning Coho salmon in Wee Burn, the stream that runs through the valley.
Mt. Hood Oregon Resort is designed with family fun in mind and offers a variety of options for families, including the Northwest’s only regulation croquet court and lawn bowling green and FootGolf, a hybrid sport combining golf and soccer.
