Though beautiful views and impeccable maintenance are typically found at long, difficult courses, the staff at Lake Oswego Golf Course believes that beginning and intermediate players should also be able to enjoy a top-notch course while learning the game. At 2,517 yards in total, the 18-hole, par-3 layout removes the physical stress of extreme length. Players can learn to hone in their game while golfing against the backdrop of Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams. Individual holes range between 74 and 179 yards, creating a hole-in-one opportunity on every tee box—provided a golfer can avoid Lost Dog Creek, outstretched tree boughs, and lost center fielders searching for fly balls.
Lake Oswego Golf Course's rates fluctuate throughout the week.

Inside Imagine Yoga Studio, a picturesque scene unfolds. Sunlight streams through large windows to reflect off dark-wood floors and illuminates the gathering of yogis who stretch between the studio's forest-green walls. An expert instructor leads the room by demonstrating postures during a range of classes. Groups move slowly through foundational postures during Form classes, which encourage proper alignment. Younger yogis can also take advantage of the serene studio with kids' classes, which introduce students aged 2–12 to more than 40 postures, body awareness, and the ability to levitate cookies off the counter.
Established in 2009, the Best of Oregon Food & Wine Festival supports the Beaver State’s thriving culinary industry every year with a lineup of local restaurateurs and vintners. The festival emphasizes the artisanal side of local cuisine, and every year proceeds benefit local charities that have included the Children’s Cancer Association, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, and the Oregon Food Bank. Between bites and beverages, guests can catch live sets by local musicians, or bid on an exquisitely invisible mime box at the festival’s silent auction.
At Gametime, interactive attractions fuse with made-from-scratch eats to create an excitement-packed tandem that raises the bar on family fun. Bowlers unleash spherical fury across 12 different lanes, including 4 lanes harbored by a private party room where leather couches, chairs, and random appearances from a mailman help to recreate the comforts of home. Inside the arcade, competitors ranging from pint-size to full-size test their skills on popular games such as air hockey or skee-ball, and throughout the facility, flat-screen TVs flicker with sporting events so eyes have an easier time diverting from heated stare downs with disobedient balls. Between unabashed sessions of point scoring, a newly remodeled kitchen serves up Pug's Restaurant's freshly crafted fare, highlighted by hand-tossed pizzas and burgers made with hormone-free beef.
