Here’s my story and I’m sticking to it !!!!!!!
As camp host for the 2019 summer season my wife and I have enjoyed all the beauty and attractions of the surrounding area. Being an avid golfer, I’ve also enjoyed several of the local golf courses .
Closest to the park is the Lewis River Golf Course in Woodland. This is a beautiful 18 hole course laid out along the Lewis River. They also feature a driving range and restaurant.
Just a few miles south in Ridgefield is Tri-Mountain Golf Course. This course can be seen from I-5 and has 11 lakes and 64 sand bunkers. There is also a driving range, chipping area, putting green and restaurant.
North of the park in the Longview/ Kelso area are two nice courses. Mint Valley Golf Course in Longview is a challenge for all skills with many bunkered greens, water hazards and tall trees. They also feature a driving range, chipping and putting green.
Three Rivers Golf Course in Kelso is an 18-hole course established in 1983 next to the Cowlitz River and owned by the Kelso-Longview Elks BPOE 1482. The course was built on a base of material deposited in the Cowlitz River by the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens and removed by dredging. This porous combination of ash, dust, sand and silt drains well in wet weather. They also have a driving range, chipping and putting green, pro shop and restaurant.
All of these fine courses are a short 15 to 25-minute drive from the park and all are reasonably priced.
