Chehalem Glenn Golf Course
Chehalem Glenn Golf Course in Newberg, Ore., which opened in the summer of 2005, is the home course of George Fox University's newest athletic programs - women's golf, which began play in the fall of 2006, and men's golf, which started in the fall of 2007.
Under the supervision of the Chehalem Parks and Recreation District, Chehalem Glenn was a project 13 years in its planning and production. The course is located on the east side of town at the foot of Parrott Mountain and currently features an 18-hole, par-72, 6,572-yard course for intercollegiate competition. Long-range plans call for an additional nine-hole par-3 course for families and youth to learn the game.
The Chehalem Glenn layout was designed by Bill Richardson and offers beautiful vistas of Parrott Mountain to the east and Mt. Chehalem to the north. The course features gently rolling hills with spacious fairways on most holes, but numerous sand traps and extensive wetlands that cross or border seven holes make it a challenge for even experienced golfers.
The first college tournament held at Chehalem Glenn was the George Fox Women's Invitational on Oct. 1, 2006.
