Charbonneau Golf Course, in Wilsonville, OR, is a nice executive course with relatively lengthy holes. Built within a large private community, Charbonneau consists of 27 holes that are heavily lined with real estate. Each 9 hole side, named Red, Yellow & Green, consists of four Par 4s and five Par 3s. Traditional to it’s type, the Par 4s here are short, some of which are reachable for longer hitters. The Par 3s, on the other hand, are notably long and will challenge all. Throughout the entire course, they average out at 180-190 yards from white to blue tees. For most golfers, this makes hitting greens in regulation improbable, creating a solid challenge and an opportunity for short game practice. Aside from big distances, Charbonneau is a friendly golf venue and conducive for all skill levels.
Charbonneau is a generally flat course with some gradually rolling terrain. Long Par 3s and an expansive out-of-bounds in the form of homes, are the biggest challenges present on the course. There are many varieties of large and beautiful trees on the grounds which can help knock errant shots back in play, but will mainly serve as additional obstacles. There’s also many bunkers present throughout the entire course, most of which are very large. Overall though, the holes here provide plenty of space to operate, with wide fairways and ample room in the rough. There’s water present in several areas that come into play, but the grounds are mainly dry. The greens vary a bit in condition, but most of the course has great rolling surfaces. The Red & Yellow courses, specifically, tend to hold form well and provide fast speeds and true lines. Some of the greens are easier, flat surfaces, while some are sloped or tiered and offer some tricky breaks.
Charbonneau has full amenities for a non-regulation course. They have a wide driving range with grass-surfaced hitting, and there’s a large putting green. The proshop, located in Charbonneau’s community square, is standard with a selection of retail items. There’s also a small restaurant on site with some basic food options and drinks.
