Skamania's New Golf Courses Open Early Summer 2021

 

Coming in 2021, the new golf courses at Skamania Lodge continue to take shape. Deserving of its breathtaking location in the Columbia River Gorge, our new 9-hole short course The Gorge 9, and 18-hole putting course The Little Eagle 18, are purposely designed to provide the impact of a BIG golf feel.

The Experience

 

Twisting between the tall timbers in Stevenson, WA, our courses incorporate all the best natural elements of golfing at Skamania with magnificent views of two sparkling lakes and the Red Bluff and Cascade Mountains. The golf experience at Skamania will be energizing, fun, and challenging for all players. On the Gorge 9, you’ll discover holes ranging upwards of 200 yards down to 50-60 yards, and multiple tee options to fit your skill level. Even the experienced golfer will be amazed to find similar shot values to a regulation length golf course, while the novice golfer will enjoy the opportunity to get out and play this historic sport. With so many options to attack the course, you will not want to miss playing golf at Skamania Lodge. Throw on a tee shirt, grab a handful of clubs, a couple of beers, and you’ll be ready to play!
