Evergreen Golf Course, situated about 20 minutes east of I-5 in-between Woodburn and Keizer in Mount Angel, OR is a unique and well maintained nine-hole track, and an opportunity for golfers of all skill levels to enjoy. Evergreen measures in at 3044 yards from the Blues and 2737 from the Red’s. The front tee box creates a great opportunity for beginner golfers to play the game on a high quality course with very few challenges other than the greenside bunkers, which come in to play on just a few holes. From the back tee’s, slight dog-legs, hazards off the tee and a short par-3 with trouble everywhere except the green is more than enough to test a more experienced player. A man made water feature as well as a chance to see Mt. Hood from the tee lead to #6 as being the most picturesque hole on the golf course. All the other holes have their own natural features that make them very aesthetically pleasing. The greens at Evergreen are in good condition and offer roll true. You can be aggressive with flat or up-hill putts, but leaving yourself with long putts from above the hole can lead to a bad stroke rolling off the green.
Playing Evergreen Golf Course
Evergreen Golf Course opens up with a perfect warm-up hole on the straight par-4 1st, while the second hole is a bit longer with a dog-leg to the right. This hole is made difficult by having to hit a longer iron on your second to a green protected with bunkers and a bit of a false front. You will have to carry the dog-leg off the tee if you want to be home in two on the par-5 3rd, but if you find the fairway you have a chance to be putting for eagle. By the looks of it, those that play it as a 3 shot hole have better success than those that miss the fairway with driver. #4 plays as the shortest and easiest hole on the course, but it is a challenge to get your yardage right and land the ball on the correct tier of this small green. A forced lay-up off the tee makes the par-5 5th only reachable with a long second shot. Play #5 as a 3 shot hole for a great chance to leave yourself with a short birdie attempt. The short par-4 6th can be reached by long hitters and the elevated tee-box actually makes this hole play shorter than the listed distance. Going for distance here comes with consequences as finding O.B. left or the trees right will leave you frustrated with your decision off the tee. A fun challenge awaits you on the par-3 7th as a large evergreen tree is in play from the tee. Being aggressive and staying to the right will pay-off for you more than risking finding the hazard to the left. A beautiful design and short yardage may cause you to underestimate the difficulty of your approach shot on the 8th, but if you can carry the false front and still keep the ball below the hole you can make 3 here. Hit a straight tee shot and don’t miss the green long or right and you can finish your round with a two putt par on this open green that leads you back to the clubhouse.
