Lewis River Golf Course in SW Washington

Updated: April 2, 2018

Lewis River Golf Course has endured a lot in its 50+ years of existence. In 1980 the summer season was lost when Mt. St. Helens blew and the course was in the red zone (a 25-mile zone around the mountain that prohibited all recreational activities), a 200-year flood in 1996 wiped out a large portion of the back nine, a fire destroyed the clubhouse in 2000, and since 2008, like all of golf, Lewis River has been dealing with the results of the great recession.

What has stayed constant through the years is the Stading family’s ownership of the facility since the course first opened in 1967. They have kept their pledge for continuous improvements and to provide the best overall recreation experience in SW Washington.

Lewis River’s team is constantly striving to have a product that appeals to both golfers and the broader general public. Located on nearly a mile of Lewis River frontage, the course features tree-lined fairways and some of the finest greens in the Northwest. Accuracy is required in order to score well here. The clubhouse is a rustic masterpiece that was built in 2001 and is unmatched for weddings, event gatherings, and golf tournaments.

David Putney, Head Golf Professional said, “There is no comparable venue in SW Washington or Portland that has a more beautiful backdrop for post round activities”. The North Fork Grille and outside patio overlook the Lewis River providing an incredibly scenic and relaxing setting that is truly unique and awe-inspiring. Lewis River’s pro-shop staff takes great pride in providing superior customer service. Lewis River Golf Course has a country club feel for the public player and is consistently ranked as a “best buy” among visitors and regular players.
