Course Conditioning


Founded in 1925, Columbia Edgewater remains dedicated to the game of golf. Our maintenance standards and renowned course conditioning reflect our commitment to excellence. The putting surfaces at Columbia Edgewater are second to none in the Portland area. To ensure optimal conditions, we mow 6-7 days per week and roll greens 3-4 times per week. Additionally, vertical mowing and light, frequent topdressing take place every 2-3 weeks during the summer.

Our fairways are also some of the best in the Northwest. This is a direct result of our successful topdressing, aerification, and drainage programs, first implemented in 1995. Even during the wetter times of the year, we are significantly drier than virtually all other courses in our area. The incorporation of our rough sanding program in 2005 has enhanced the playability in those areas as well, ensuring that all aspects of the course are accessible to members even during the winter months.

"I've been to hundreds of LPGA events, but never have seen a golf course that looked better. In my opinion, Columbia Edgewater is one of the best golf courses on the West Coast and one of America's great old courses." — Jim Achenbach, Senior Writer, Golfweek Magazine
