The OGA Golf Course
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

In 1991, the Oregon Golf Association (OGA) commissioned a study to determine the feasibility of constructing an 18-hole golf course and the financing requirements to undertake such a monumental project. The study determined that the cost of the project, depending on its location, would most likely rule out the dream of the OGA having its own facility, barring an unforeseen miracle. That miracle came in early 1992 when the OGA was approached with an astonishing offer from Tukwila Partners Development Corporation. They were willing to donate more than 179 acres of farmland alongside their real estate development in Woodburn, Ore., for the purpose of constructing and operating a golf course on the land. The partnership between OGA and the Tukwila Partners led to the development of a three-phase construction project that began in July 1993. Phase I included the construction of the first nine holes, a driving range, course maintenance facility and a temporary clubhouse. Phase II saw the completion of the second nine holes and Phase III, completed in February 2000, includes a 14,000-square-foot clubhouse and permanent OGA headquarters.
