Depending on the time of year, exploring Kahler Glen Golf & Ski Resort's patch of evergreen forest requires either a set of golf clubs or a pair of cross country skis. On clear summer days, the grass shines green and the snowcapped peaks of the Cascades dominate the horizon as visitors strap on their golf bags and voyage over steep mountain inclines and past six lakes. The 5,893-yard layout leads them down chutes formed by narrow fairways and high walls of evergreen trees, en route to a par of 70.

In the winter, snow blankets the terrain and fairways instantly transform into cross-country ski trails. Kahler Glen grooms several kilometers of private trails, which connect to the Lake Wenatchee trail system just to the northwest, adding up to more than 30 kilometers of skiable terrain and Yeti walking trails.

Indian Creek Golf Course's layout snakes through the Hood River Valley between a network of sprawling orchards and wineries with panoramic views of Mount Hood and Mount Adams creating a dramatic backdrop. Water comes into play on 11 holes, including three creeks that bisect fairways to disrupt play and tempt players to take fairway naps to the melodic babbling of their playing partners. On the par 5 fourth hole, precision is paramount, as the dogleg right is entirely fortified by water to the right and the small, narrow green make short putts strenuous with hard-to-read-breaks.

Indian Creek Golf Course won an Environmental Excellence award from Audubon International for its efforts in areas of wildlife and habitat management, chemical-use reduction, and water-quality management. The course and its surrounding land act as a sanctuary to a variety of wildlife, including several species of caddies now endangered because rampant cart use. Course at a Glance:

  • Par 72
  • Three sets of tees
  • 6,150 yards from the back tees
