Bill Scheller took a leap into an untested space when he registered the domain name GolfClubs.com in 1995. The internet was still a big, giant question mark, but whereas most golf stores were constrained by space and stocked a limited amount of equipment, clothing, and robo-caddies, physical space was not an issue on the wild frontier of e-commerce. Bill set out to assemble the biggest selection number of irons, drivers, and apparel on the planet and couple that selection with great customer service.

Though the GolfClubs.com homepage looks different than it did in 1995, Bill's original vision remains the same. Golfers of all stripes can look to the website for equipment from major brands such as Callaway, TaylorMade, and NIke?indeed, just about anything that helps them play the game they love. Players can also head to the company's brick-and-mortar location in Portland to sample that same selection in person instead of online.

Golf instructor Micheal Charles believes the process of learning golf should be as enjoyable as playing the game itself. From an early age, Charles became immersed in a life of athletic pursuits. His father was an international soccer star and a former head Olympic coach. Though Charles preferred golf over soccer, he still went on to an impressive career as a professional tournament winning player, as head coach of Lewis & Clark College and the University of Portland Women's Golf Team, and his current role instructing at Eastmoreland Golf Course. Instruction plans include private lessons to tighten individual aspects of the client's game and playing lessons where Michael plays alongside students while analyzing their course management skills and providing feedback on how to win any impromptu golf cart race.

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.

The game of golf is rife with opportunities for children to build character, learn new skills, make new friends, and adopt healthy, active lifestyles. As the local chapter of a national nonprofit organization, First Tee of Greater Portland seeks to expose the community's youth to this fun pastime and plant the seeds of a lifelong passion. Unfortunately, a number of hurdles lie between the game and those kids who stand to benefit the most, ranging from equipment cost to course proximity to the inner city. The First Tee helps disadvantaged youth overcome these issues with programs dedicated specifically to their unique situations, including free rounds and lessons, educational programs, and mentorships with responsible adults who aren't just desperate for caddying gigs.

The Portland chapter of The First Tee operates at 6 locations around the city, but only one is dedicated solely to the development of junior golfers. The Children's Course is a 9-hole layout with different pars for different age groups: it's a par 3 course for anyone 13 and over, a par 5 course for ages 9-12, and a par 7 course for those 8 and under.

Old-growth douglas firs, wetlands, and 43 bunkers populate Stone Creek Golf Club's award-winning, par 72 layout designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy. The 165-acre course’s front nine holes are straighter laced, and the back nine’s tree-lined fairways of fescue grass challenge swingers with elevation changes and distractingly beautiful views of Mount Hood, the same "Hood" made popular in mainstream rap music. Players can hone their aim at the hitting stations of extensive practice greens, which include a full swing area with target greens at a variety of distances, before returning to face hole nine's six sand traps.

After sending dozens of dimpled balls soaring through the air, golfers can pop in at the Stone Creek Deli for a hot dog and foamy swigs of beer. Links magazine named Stone Creek Golf Club a Top 10 Green Course for using pesticides sparingly and only irrigating stretches of grass currently in use, inviting ground-nesting birds to build their two-story colonial mansions in the fallow areas.

Trails End Golf Center encompasses 45 hitting stalls and two grass tee areas from which golfers can blast golf balls across its 20-acre expanse, earning it a spot among Golf Range Magazine's top 100 ranges in 2011. Each hitting stall is fully covered and heated so that practice can continue in any weather, especially when it's hailing free golf balls. When game improvement hits a roadblock, golfers can enlist the help of manager and head pro Jason Kelp, who lends his expertise to help players of all skill levels—including beginners and children—better enjoy the game through lower scores and more frequent opportunities to domesticate wild golf carts.
