|Click Images for Expanded Views|
So, how do you rate a golf course that offers lush, watered fairways, excellent greens, re-built tee boxes, holes to challenge a good golfer yet playable for a novice, and greens fees only matched by lesser courses?
That's the reality of Hamlet Golf Course. Whether you walk or ride, play one day or another, this course will be worth the trip ... certainly call ahead for tee times.
According to Brian Earnest, Course Manager, Hamlet Golf Course opened in 1933 as a very wide-open flat track. Owner & Superintendent Scott Lippens has set out to change that. From 1992 to 2007, over 1900 trees have been planted and 14 sand bunkers added to the course.
The signature hole is # 3 with a drainage ditch running down the left side of the 410-yard, Par-4 and water on the right only 223 yards from the tee box. A pond stretches to within 20 yards of the green. Reach the green in regulation and you still need to putt the beautiful slope of the uphill (front to back) surface. The same pond then guards the # 4 tee. Great corner!
Course amenities include riding and pull carts, practice putting and chipping green, club rental, a Pro Shop with merchandise for sale, as well as on-course drinks/snacks and restrooms.
The course is open to Men's and Ladies Leagues, various Group Outings, Fundraisers, and supports the local Oregon-Davis High School Athletic Department.
