Upcoming Events

We're Golfing! The Chapter 's 2020 season opened the first week of May. Oregon golf courses were exempted from state closure orders and are operating with new social distancing and no-touch protocols, and without food service, as outlined by the Golf Alliance of Oregon.  As of June 1, all ten of our weekday Leagues are underway and our weekends are full with Golf Events (scheduled outings) and Weekend Play (ad hoc play dates). We're staying safe, careful to follow course protocols and our own personal safety measures.

Those of you who wish to play are urged to contact the course(s) you're interested in to find out what specific safety protocols are in place.  Please note that each of us participates at our own risk. Chapter leaders continue to monitor orders and advisories, and will make adjustments accordingly. Please watch for further announcements in our Monday PDX Update emails and this space on our homepage.

Use the Main Menu Links at the top of our site to view and register for all Chapter Events, Chapter Leagues and Education (clinics) programming.
