Swinging for the Roses – May 22

The Northwest Hickory Players’ Portland Affiliates will host “Swinging for the Roses,” an 18-hole outing on Sunday, May 22, at the Rose City Golf Course in Portland. They have room for 24 players starting at 11 a.m.  Players can pay their fee at the clubhouse.


Built in 1923, the course is the second oldest municipal course in the city and state. Located in the center of northeast Portland neighborhoods, Rose City GC is a classic, tree-lined course that is both playable and challenging for players at all levels. Recent renovations have improved conditions and year-round playability at Rose City.

Historically, the property has seen a progression of use by planes, trains, horses, motorcycles, and cars. Getting to Rose City Golf Club is easy from any section of town or Southwest Washington. Just west of Rocky Butte and adjacent to Madison High School, our course is a hidden gem in Northeast Portland. The clubhouse is on the National Register of Historic Places — a beautiful, brick building with steep pitched roofs. Inside, you will be welcomed in the pro shop where you will find the staff eager to assist with your check in. Before or after your round you can relax in the Rose City Grill, where breakfast, lunch and snacks are available every day. They also have outdoor seating available by our putting and chipping space and in our picnic area toward the first tee.
