Golf is one of the most entertaining (and sometimes frustrating) games known to man. Many of us do it (myself included) with very little success, often leading to the tossing of expensive golf clubs and maybe the occasional vulgarity. Yet, we go back time and time again.


    Competitive drive. Companionship. The outdoors. The exercise. Casual business meetings. And fortunately, here in Portland, there are innumerable public and private golf courses to enjoy, one of which is the Sah-Hah-Lee course in nearby Clackamas.

    Sah-Hah-Lee Golf Course is a public golf course providing 18 holes with an average par of three. Sah-Ha-Lee is located on the banks of the Clackamas River and offers a gorgeous and challenging layout that will delight both the novice and seasoned golfer.

    I am a decent golfer but my wife has struggles with the game. One day, while I was out enjoying the links, I surprised her and purchased her five lessons from one of the tremendous golf coaches on site. At $250, and a bucket of balls, my wife was eager to learn the game. And she was a fast learner. By the conclusion of her final lesson, she joined me on the links and stayed out of the hazards and sand traps far better than I did. In fact, I had several bogeys and double bogeys while she played a par game. Imagine the crushing of my ego and the immense pride I felt at the same time.

    And Sah-Hah-Lee is open year round. This is really the best time to go as discounts are offered and the links are fairly empty, meaning you can launch that tiny white ball as far as you want and have no risk of injuring another golfer… or your own ego when you struggle.

    More than golf, the Sah-Hah-Lee golf course in Clackamas is available for a variety of events. The Pavilion at Sah-Ha-Lee is a gorgeous wooden structure with a remarkable view, yet plenty of shelter. It is perfect for weddings, receptions, banquets, corporate events and parties. “The Pavilion can be transformed from a cool and calm open-air facility to a warm and inviting all-season banquet room in a matter of minutes.”

    So whether you’re a seasoned golfer or someone looking to get into the sport, consider Sah-Hah-Lee as a starting point. Not only is the landscape utterly gorgeous, but the links are rugged and provide just enough challenge for everyone. Book your tee-time today by visting

    Sah-Hah-Lee may not be world famous, but it’s certainly a little gem and one more reason why you should feel blessed to call Portland home.
