The Resort At The Mountain
Situated in the western highlands of Mount Hood National Forest, The Courses at The Mountain combines three nine-hole layouts for <a href="http://gr.pn/HBZXCf">27 holes</a> sculpted into the forest's pristine displays of flora and fauna. The resort's three nines, titled Thistle, Pine Cone, and Foxglove, challenge golfers of all stripes to navigate streams, forests, and secret flagstick passwords needed to unlock each track. Established in 1928 by locals Ralph Shattuck and George Waale, Pine Cone represents the site's original playing terrain and the fourth-oldest course in Oregon. The middle sibling, Thistle, attracts beginners and novices with a shorter length and forgiving fairways for game improvement. The newest and most difficult nine, Foxglove, challenges skilled players with narrow fairways and endless lies to lose a golf ball, forcing golfers to dip into an extra sleeve of golf balls or continue harboring a hardboiled egg trying to escape an inevitable egg salad.
