Hole #1: Outward Bound
Favor the left side of this fairway as the influence of the hills and the slope of the fairway will tend to send your ball bounding to the right. One extra club may be needed for the approach shot as this hole is slightly uphill from 150 yards on in. We wish you luck as you begin your challenge of Skamania Lodge!
Hole #4: Gorge(ous) Point
One of our signature holes! Admire the view, but beware of the infamous Columbia gorge winds that will once again blow your shots off line. A strong drive will get you close to the green (worth the risk!?!) but a smart play is to lay up short of the hazard on the right and the bunkers on the left, leaving a short iron approach.
Hole #8: Eagle's Rest
You're not home yet! This par 3 requires steady nerves and a smooth swing to reach the green perched on the side of the hill. Take one or two clubs extra, but be sure you are below the hole. The adventure only just begins on the green as the undulations will challenge even the most skilled putters.
Hole #9: Distraction
This straightforward par 4 allows for a strong finish to the front nine, if you can avoid being distracted by the views on the right and the yummy smells coming from our Lodge kitchen on the left! The distance on your approach shot needs to be accurate as this is our deepest green at 40 yards. Be sure to replenish your strength with a sandwich and beverage from our Greenside Grille at the turn.
Hole #10: Lewis And Clark
Take inspiration from historical explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark as you venture out once again. Favor the left side of this fairway to open up your approach to the green. The ideal landing area is about 200-225 yards out, and will leave you a short iron approach.
Hole #15: Wy'East
Happy Birthday! This short par 3 is a gift compared to the rest. Plays slightly shorter because of the elevated tee. Hopefully Wy'East Lake won't come into play for your tee shot, but if it does, watch out for the turtles that like to sun themselves along the shore. They are very territorial!
Hole #18: Huckleberry Hills
This double dogleg par 5 is rarely man's best friend. A strong finish to what we hope was a great day, this hole requires accuracy from tee to green to avoid finding the huckleberry bushes. Favor the left side of the fairway off the tee to open up your second shot. Welcome home!
