OGA Golf Course
Like a hole in one on a par 3, the creation of OGA Golf Course was the product of time, patience, and a little luck. In 1991, the Oregon Golf Association began its search for a location to build an 18-hole golf course. Their commissioned study, which probed the finances and feasibility of such a project, returned ill tidings: without some sort of aid, the OGA would not be able to open its own facility. One year later, and seemingly out of nowhere, the Tukwila Partners Development Corporation donated 179 acres of farmland to the Association, land that was transformed into a par 72 course.
The holes at OGA Golf Course give players of all skill levels a worthy challenge. The first hole introduces players to the course with a straightforward drive and a par 4 finish. The fourth hole confronts golfers with a par 5 that discourages the use of drivers, as shots must pass through a narrow landing. Players finish their round with the par 4 hole 18 that contains a double green, providing a relaxed ending and ample space to take a nap.
