About the Club

Founded in 1925, Columbia Edgewater has been part of PortlandÕs golf landscape for almost a century. Our members share an unbridled love of the game and throughout the decades we have seen many of them develop into players who excel at the local, regional and national level. Our club serves as a place where families can spend time together and enjoy the company of other member families as they learn and embrace the game of golf.

Originally established as Columbia Country Club. Arthur Vernon (ÒA.V.Ó) Macan was selected to design the course, which opened on July 11, 1925 and was the seventh 18 hole course in Portland, Oregon. Macan was the premiere designer of the time in the Northwest, renovating or designing over 60 courses in his lifetime. Other courses designed by Macan include Seattle Golf Club, Shaughnessy Golf Club, Manito Golf Club, California Golf Club of San Francisco, Inglewood Golf Club, Overlake Golf and Country Club and Marine Drive Golf Club.

The original clubhouse officially opened in June 1926 on the banks of the Columbia River. This clubhouse burned to the ground in a Christmas tree fire in 1979. The present-day clubhouse was built in 1980 and opened its doors in July 1981.

The club has received acclaim for 8 consecutive years a top 50 Private Club in America for Practice Facilities by the GRAA, largely in part to our world class practice areas. These include the 9-hole Mason Par 3 Course and Short Game Practice Facility which were opened nearly 20 years ago. The club recently renovated the Pro Shop and Pool House, as well as enhancing the largest grass driving range tee in the Portland Metropolitan area. Our members and invited guests play approximately 35,000 rounds annually. The Golf Course Maintenance Department has an annually operating budget of over $1.6M, with additional capital expenditures for ongoing golf course improvements and golf course equipment. The Green Committee has adopted a Long-Range Golf Course Improvement Plan, which is currently underway and will continue for the next 10 years.

Throughout the decades, Columbia Edgewater has attracted and developed many quality players who compiled impressive golfing records in local, regional and national tournaments. Columbia Edgewater has also played host to many great Pacific Northwest golf events, including:

  • The Oregon Open: 1929, 1930
  • The Portland Open, a PGA Tour Event: 1961-1963, 1966
  • The Oregon Amateur: 1928, 1938, 1952, 1961, 1973, 1984, 1997, 2007, 2020 upcoming
  • The Northwest Open: 1963, 1970
  • The LPGA Safeway Classic: 1974-2008
