Please get the word out in advance if y’all do something in Portland area this Summer. Would love to drop a few Southwest points and get up there. Been a minute…

when I get home Ill look at the pumpkin schedule of events. Ill pick some good dates and toss them out here. I think it would be fun to have an informal get together of like minded people.

The guest rate is about $100 ish, unless 2023 has any changes. If there is someone with limited travel resources, I do have and extra bedroom and bath LOL

Sounds great! Looking forward to it. Oregon Roll Call needs to represent! Plus will be good to get some mini-matches/warmups before we go to larger Roost events.

OP3 will be at a new location you might not have played before… And a reasonable drive from PDX

Yea the rumor mill is abound. Very excited! I’m gonna go to Chambers this year again no matter what. But Oregon is definitely calling me.

Hey there, we are looking at relocating from SoCal to Bend or Eugene. I am a member of Lowcal roost and hope to connect with members of Oregon Roost who reside in Central OR.

Hey, Oregon folk.

We still have a ton of spots available for our Gearhart meetup! It’s March 25th-26th. There’s a block of times starting at noon on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning times starting at 10am. There’s a ladies club event starting at 8am or so, so we have to be after it. Didn’t think it’d be a huge issue cause some of you might be driving over anyway.

  • Everyone is getting the resort discount without any requirements for a rooms block or even staying in one of the required options to get said discount. So, spouses/families coming along and staying anywhere are on the table!

  • Cost is $75 per round. You can send it to @Matthew-Essig (last 4 digits are 9234 if you need them) on Venmo

  • Signups and payment must be done by Friday! You can ignore the other tabs in there and just use the March signup tab

Ah darn, I’ll be just returning from a trip otherwise I’d be all in. I love that place.

This is perfect timing, as some friends and I booked a house in Seaside for that weekend and I was hoping to play Gearhart on Sunday AM before heading back to Portland. That being said, a few questions/concerns I have about jumping into this:

  1. I don’t currently have a handicap, having only just started seriously playing back in the summer of 2022 (random rounds here and there over the last 20 years, but HS hijinx don’t count).
  2. Related to the above, currently shooting around 100-110, on courses that are probably much easier than this one.
  3. Don’t have a partner, being brand new to this group, and will likely not offer much in terms of contributing to a respectable team score in this format (though I promise my swing isn’t horrendous, just inconsistent, and I putt decently well).

Considering the above, I would still love to join y’all and meet some other PNW folks and play 18, so should I just sign up and not worry about it? Despite taking 110 shots to finish a round, I play fast! :laughing:

I have a group of 3 that I reached out and checked with. Didn’t think it’d be an issue and it isn’t haha. They’d love to have ya join on that Sunday morning!

Throw your name next to Ted Kyle and hit me with the payment ASAP in the next 2 days! You won’t be part of the “tourney” but you don’t have to be to attend a PNW Crew meetup :smiley:

Anyone going to the Portland Golf Show at the expo center this weekend? I’m thinking I might swing by Saturday afternoon for a few hours. Feel free to send me a message if you’ll be there and we can shoot the shit and you can help me decide which 52 degree wedge to buy (my bag is currently 5-9 with a PW and I’ve been told a 52 will solve all my chipping problems :upside_down_face: )

Hey folks! I’m headed to Bandon May 12-14 with a family member, but blocked off the whole week to play Gearhart and the adjoining area. I couldn’t convince any of the NorCal guys to join me on such short notice, but would love to meet up with anyone for a round on May 7 afternoon (around Portland) or May 8-10 (gearhart / highlands / manzanita / astoria / etc).

Also - happy to take any recommendations!

Hi there!

If you’re playing around Portland, I’d recommend one of the courses at Heron Lakes or if you don’t mind a little drive, get out to Wildwood. You could also look at Stone Creek in Oregon City or play the Reserve out in North Plains.

Strongly recommend Wildwood!

Hi all, wondering if there are any Portland area meetups scheduled? I’m a newer golfer, started a little over a year ago (but just broke 90 heyo) and would love to expand my community here and make more golfing friends since I’m semi-new to the area. Anything in the works?
