Claremont Golf Club

Claremont Golf Club is an enjoyable 9-hole course located in the Bethany area of NW Portland. For nearby residents, Claremont is a great course to frequent for a laid back round of fun or practice. Claremont is located within a pleasant, 55+ living community, and is a good destination for golfers of all ages and skill levels. This is a neighborhood course in every sense, as homes and water features take the place of forests and natural hazards. The course is relatively easy, but has enough challenges to entertain higher skilled golfers.

Claremont Golf Club is a shorter, yet regulation Par 36 course, not to be mistaken for an executive style course. The house-lined hole layouts serve as an expansive out of bounds area and is the biggest existing trouble area. Several water hazards come into play, most notably between the 1st and 9th holes. The course also contains a few strategically located oak trees, and some smaller landscaped trees along the rough, but the fairways provide ample target space. All of the greens are guarded by favorably shallow bunkers. The greens at Claremont usually play a bit slower than average and provide simple breaks. Most importantly, they remain in respectable shape despite the heavy traffic from community members and nearby residents alike.

Claremont is excellent for on-course practice, but it’s lacking in independent work stations. There’s no driving range, and their putting green is just that; no chipping allowed. The pro shop is basic but suffice for a 9-hole course. They offer drinks, snacks and some merchandise and equipment. In the summer they have a snack cart.
