Our History

Columbia Edgewater was established in 1924 as Columbia Country Club. Arthur Vernon ("A.V.") Macan was selected to design the course, which opened on July 11, 1925 and was the seventh 18-hole course in Portland. Macan was the premiere designer of the time in the Northwest, renovating or designing over 60 courses in his lifetime. Other courses designed by Macan include Seattle Golf Club, Inglewood Golf Club, Overlake Golf and Country Club, and Marine Drive Golf Club. The original clubhouse officially opened in June 1926 on the banks of the Columbia River. That clubhouse burned to the ground in a Christmas tree fire in 1979. The present day clubhouse was built in 1980, and opened its doors in July, 1981.

Centennial Clubhouse Renovations

As we approach our 100th anniversary, we are excited to preview the planned renovations to our clubhouse. The Board of Directors and Club leadership have worked with expert architects, designers and planners to create an off-course environment that better connects our members to our incredible on-course experience.
Renovations will update and modernize the exterior and interior, including a relocated member's grill that integrates indoor seating with new outdoor dining areas on an expanded wrap-around terrace, a revitalized adult-only McIntyre Room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a new lounge with seated bar for members and their guests to enjoy, a wine room perfect for privated dining experiences and an updated entrance lobby. Preview the upcoming changes below.
