Welcome to Three Rivers Golf Course!
Three Rivers Golf Course, a Robert Muir Graves designed 18-hole course established in 1983 next to the Cowlitz River, is owned by the Kelso-Longview Elks Lodge #1482.
The course is built on a base of material deposited in the Cowlitz River by the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens and removed by dredging. This porous combination of ash, dust, sand and silt, drains well in wet weather, and golfers commute here from up and down the I-5 corridor when other Northwest courses are too soggy to play. The poa annua (annual bluegrass) greens putt well all year, and the winter rye fairways hold up well.
The course features four sets of tee boxes to accommodate different golfers:
Blue tees – 6,629 yards, with a men’s Course Rating of 71.5 and Slope of 129
White tees – 6,094 yards; men 68.9/120; women 74.6/129
Gold tees – 5,703 yards; men 67/117; women 72.4/124
Red tees – 5,295 yards; women’s Course Rating 70.1, Slope 120
Dress code is casual, but shirts and shoes are required. Metal spikes are not allowed.
