Langdon Farms Golf Club

General Course DescriptionLangdon Farms golf

Langdon Farms Golf Club is an 18-hole public course just south of Portland, off of I-5 (which you only really hear on a few holes). Langdon Farms is a well-maintained, open course with well-placed trees, bunkers, water, and mounds. Langdon Farms Golf Club is an attractive course that is worth your time. There are a few “tricked-up” holes (such as the par 3, table-top 6th), but overall the course, conditions, facilities, and service provide a very nice golf experience. Forward tees provide shorter distances and better angles. It is a fairly flat course and a nice walk.

Course History

Built in 1995 by OB Sports from farmland owned by Harold Langdon (the clubhouse is a replica of the Langdon farmhouse; and the barn on the 8th hole was built in 1908). In 2002 the course was purchased by golf fans Chris and Tom Maletis (and in 2009, they hired OB Sports to manage the facility). The course has received numerous awards, including one of the Top 10 Public Courses in Oregon by The Oregonian in 2008, and one of the Top 10 Places to Play in Oregon by Golfweek  in 2009-2010. It has also hosted several tournaments including the OGA Tournament of Champions, the Hudson Cup, and the 4A State High School Championships. It is now one of the top locations in the metro area to host a golf tournament (corporate or non-profit).

Why It Is There

OB Sports wanted to have a facility to fill the gap between public and private courses as well as a place to house its administrative offices.

I Wish I Would Have Known Before I PlayedLangdon Farms golf

Use a putter from off the green (when the course is dry). The par-3 3rd hole is downhill. But do not take less club; trust the full yardage. Also on the par-4 12th hole, there is a dip in the green about 1/4 from the back. If the pin is back there make sure you go the full distance.

Did You Know

The course was designed by Bob Cupp and John Fought. John’s brother Jeff was a pro at the course.

Good For Them

The ponds accumulate rain water that is then used for irrigation (and monitored for chemical levels). It is the host course for Portland State and several high schools: Wilsonville, North Marin, and Jesuit. They have deep discounts for juniors with a junior card.

Why Play This CourseLangdon Farms golf

They are in a niche between the private and public clubs, with a well-maintained good course and great service at a not-too-steep price (look for discounts, there are many). It also drains very well and plays well in the wet.

It's a little pricy, but the course is in great condition, and there are several perks (like small bag of range balls). Staff is nice and the restaurant is great. Overall, its a really nice place to play.

Very good course overall. Drains well in the rainy season. Club personnel are very cordial and help where they can. The reservation system was difficult to use. They changed it twice in 2021, which caused one of my reservations to be lost. Course pricing is a bit expensive in the summer, which causes me to play elsewhere May-October.
