Mt Hood Oregon Resort (formerly known as The Resort at the Mountain) is home to a popular 27-hole golf course, laid out in a predominantly woodland and occasionally a residential setting.
Formerly known as the "Red" course, Foxglove is the latest nine-hole addition at Mt Hood Oregon Resort. Established in 1981, it is best known for its iconic opening hole, featuring a large rock in the centre of the fairway, while the Salmon River skirts past the first three holes.
The Pinecone-nine was established in 1928 as the original nine holes, from which you gain 360-degree views of the cascading hills of the Mount Hood National Forest. Often considered the most forgiving and the easiest to walk, the Thistle-nine is a par-34 course, with water comes into play on half of its holes.
