Oregon native Dan Hixson has overseen an extensive remodeling of Portland Golf Club, most notably repositioning and rebuilding bunkers to match the understated, classic aesthetic of the 1914 design. Hixson and his team also restored original green sizes to reclaim pin positions—and a tree-removal program continues to improve the agronomics and playability.

Heron Lakes Golf Course: Great Blue
Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed two courses at Heron Lakes Golf Club, an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary just north of downtown Portland. Both layouts hosted a U.S. Amateur Public Links, with the Greenback course first hosting in 1979, followed by Great Blue in 2000. Compared to the Greenback, Great Blue offers smaller, more undulating greens. There is plenty of tall, Scottish-style fescue and mounds, which add character and penalize wayward shots.

Heron Lakes Golf Course: The Greenback
Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed two courses at Heron Lakes Golf Club, an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary just north of downtown Portland. Both layouts hosted a U.S. Amateur Public Links, with the Greenback course first hosting in 1979, followed by Great Blue in 2000. Greenback opened in 1972 and was the first course built at Heron Lakes. It’s a more traditional parkland layout than Great Blue, with large, often elevated greens. With six ponds on the course, there is plenty of water in play.
