Nestled in the valley between Mt Hood and the Columbia River, it was once a sleepy town enjoyed by farmers and windsurfers. But times have changed, and fast. The town of Hood River is now known all over the Northwest for its incredible scenery, top notch restaurants and support of the athletic lifestyle. The pride of this town is one place that caters to all three.

Not unlike Hood River, Indian Creek was for many years enjoyed by it's lucky locals and golf enthusiasts in the know. But the secret is out. Golf Digest gave Indian Creek Golf Course four stars as a Best Places To Play. Portland Business Journal placed Indian Creek at #6 for their Best Public Courses and Tournament Sites. Yet, you only have to ask the clubhouse barkeep why people drive from Portland because she hears it every day. "This course is in amazing shape."
This is by no means an accident. Tyson Jacobs, the club's GM and Superintendent knows that jaw dropping views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams don't hurt, Tyson appreciates that a great golf round requires an impressively manicured course. "In the end, the condition of the course is what brings the golfer back. This is where I like to focus my attention. It’s the cake"
Still, don't you dare miss the icing simply known as Divots. This clubhouse restaurant is a hot spot in the Hood River culinary scene. Divots stays rockin' year round. The chef is a New York transplant who knows great sandwiches. Gourmet salads, halibut fish & chips, homemade meatloaf, fat steaks and fresh pasta are all wolfed down with that spectacular Mt. Hood view. This all adds up to one great day trip. Golfers enjoy a round while friends and family, hike, bike, swim or enjoy some fabulous downtown shopping. Then the group meets at Divots to relax, dine and take in the scenery.
So there you have it….a great course, breathtaking views, delicious food…and yet there is one thing missing. Attitude. The staff and regulars you'll meet at Indian creek are the happiest and most welcoming you'll find. And really, why wouldn't they be?

It's almost worth the green fee just to sit and enjoy the view with Mt. Hood towering on the horizon. The course is fun. We played the front nine which has a couple uniquely adventurous holes. You'll ... more »
Played this course 4 years ago in a tournament and haven't been back since. Visited again to re familiarize myself before another tournament. Remember not thinking much of it the first time but then I realized it was because we played the White tees at 5400 yards. Played the Black tees at 6200 this time and it was simply a much better course. Challenging but fair. Very nice layout and conditions. Staff was very nice and food after round was good. Didn't see a beer cart all day so buy beverages before or at the turn. I usually always walk but this is one course a cart may be better. Elevation changes and distance between a few holes makes for a very nice work out. It's a bit of a drive from Portland but well worth it at $72 with cart.
Most people don't realize that there is a great little bistro like restaurant/bar at this golf club that is open to the public for dining inside and outside both. The food is well prepared and worth the trip. I especially like their "Creek" salad. Its a nice place to relax and have a healthy meal with friends.
