About Portland Parks Golf
Portland Parks Golf has been meeting the recreation and golf needs of the Portland community since 1918, while also having a long history of holding various high-profile golf events and tournaments. Portland is the only municipality in the country to have hosted four USGA national championships and has played host to a number of significant golf events.
Every year, over 330,000 rounds are played on Portland Parks Golf courses. We are proud to offer lessons by trained golf professionals, meeting and hospitality facilities, and public and private events and tournaments at each of our properties.
Portland Parks Golf is an enterprise fund. It covers its operating costs with user fees paid by public golfers and no tax dollars. Revenue made in excess of costs are placed in the golf fund. The reserve in the golf fund helps mitigate negative impacts to revenue, like poor weather, and for future capital projects.
Forty full-time and part-time City employees maintain the five Portland Parks Golf courses. An additional 260 people work for the clubhouse concessionaires in the pro shops, restaurants, and driving ranges.
