History | Rock Creek Country Club
Rock Creek Country Club is a premiere Northwest golf course, established in the late 1950's. As the Rock Creek community began to grow, a golf course was designed and built to service the local area and to enhance the scenic landscape. The designers envisioned an affordable public golf club with a private country club experience.
What quietly started as a nine-hole public golf course soon developed quickly when a second nine-holes was added a few years later. The result was a course with an interesting and challenging layout in a picturesque setting.
The original clubhouse was located off the 13th green and included a small pro shop. In 1975, a new group of investors purchased the club and the course become private. The years that followed saw many improvements: The practice areas were revamped, a pump was purchased to help with drainage and the current clubhouse location was built as well as a separate pro shop. Probably the most significant change was when the front and back nine were reversed.
The golf course was sold about 10 years later and subsequently owned for the next 20 years by the same family. In 2001 it was sold to the existing membership group. Since then many improvements have been made to the Pro Shop, Clubhouse and the course. We are proud to say that the Club has never been in better shape than it is today and we will continue to make noticeable improvements, both aesthetic and functional in the near future.
Fun fact: The Oregon Open was held at Rock Creek Country Club in 1980 and was won by Doug Campbell who fired a score of 206 (10 under par) for the 3 days.
