  • Pendleton, Oregon is getting a course

    An 11-hole course is going in at Community Park in Pendleton. A work party is scheduled for Saturday, August 1 at 8:00 am to set the posts in concrete for the baskets. The eleven Innova baskets are ready and waiting. Concrete tee pads to be added in the coming months. I have not played the layout, only seen it on a map. At least two holes will have McKay creek in play.

      Added it to the map.

      Bucklander, is there any way you can get a hold of a copy of that course layout?

        I'll post more info including a map as I get it. A story about the new course in the local paper is here:

        The story says nine holes, but I believe there will be eleven.

          Pretty good article. It's got a few goofy patches, but they did their homework.

            Woohoo! I can't wait to get back home to play...maybe I'll be going to the Roundup after all.

                  Not sure how long it will take - depends on how many people show up or how many pass out from the heat. Might be able to use a shovel and a level if you have one. We'll have a gas powered auger to make the holes....

                        The course is playabe. We are still waiting on signs how ever the holes are marked. There is a short and a long 9hole course. For the Long course follow the Holes marked with an 'A.'

                          So, is it 9 baskets, with short and long teepads?

                          What happened to "11 holes"?

                            What happened to "11 holes"?
                            It has 10 baskets and 11 tee positions
                            The holes are labled
                            1-4, 5/4a, 6/5a, 6a, 7/7a, 8, 9
                            still
                            The long course skips hole 4 and goes to hole 5/4a...
                            6a is its own hole and 7a is an alternate tee position making it about a 500' hole.
                            Both courses start and end at the same spot and share some holes. It was designed so you could play it as a short or long course. There is one manditory on the course (for safety) at hole 6/5a please stay to the right of it.
                            Currently the Tees are Natural. The plan is to upgrade them to concrete in the future once the city allows us to the funding (I believe) is in place.

                              Which parking lot does the course start at? Is a map available yet?
