“The Old Course of 1927”
Portland’s original golf course was constructed in 1925. It wasn’t much more than a rough pasture located on a farm north of town. In November 1926, a meeting of the members was called by the First President S. A. Horning to discuss the future of the course. At this meeting a motion was made and carried to organize a new course. Howard Benson of Lansing and Charles Lockwood of Portland agreed to provide enough land for 18 holes and open the first 9 holes before July 1927. The new course officially opened in June 1927, and has been in continuous operation since that time.
The Portland Country Club sits on a beautifully manicured 100 acres of pure rolling terrain and mature trees. This course plays to a solid 6100 yards and is a true test for all kinds of players. Come and play golf like the way it was designed when golf was just starting.
