Skyline Golf Course’s scenic, undulated terrain challenges golfers with an engaging nine-hole course peppered with views of the Columbia River Basin. A lone linksman or club-toting twosome test their skills along the 2,433 yards that make up the par 36 course. Treacherous doglegs and ponds attempt to distract hole-bound balls on their way home, as golfers make their way through greens including two holes at par 5 and two at par 3. To complete an 18-hole round, players loop the emerald links twice over, providing them a second chance to win over the birdie that got away. Situated near the first tee, the ample driving range allows for quick long-distance practices before setting off into onto the lush landscape to conquer the risk-reward course. After the round, players can mosey to the pro shop to replenish with a cold refreshment or savory snack, or upgrade their golf gear with a new club, sleeve of golf balls, or cyborg caddy from the future, all available at a 20% discount.

Locals who frequent the nine holes of Skyline Golf Course have taken to calling it Cathlamet’s “Emerald Gem.” With its undulating fairways and scenic views of the Columbia River Basin, the course offers little to challenge this honored epithet. Designed by architect Ralph Rodahl, its treacherous doglegs and ponds have been distracting hole-bound balls for nearly half a century. Among Rodahl’s most challenging designs are two holes at par 5 and two at par 3, each of which requires golfers to navigate a fairway rife with hazards and packs of feral golf carts.
Situated near the first tee, an ample driving range allows for long-distance practice before setting off to conquer the high-risk, high-reward course. After the round, players can replenish with a cold refreshment or savory snack on the clubhouse deck, or upgrade their golf gear with a new sleeve of golf balls from the pro shop or a cyborg caddy from the future.
