Tucked amidst the waterfalls, peaks, forests and canyons of the Columbia Gorge lies a rustic mountain resort and conference center called Skamania Lodge.The lodge offers a challenging golf experience you will not soon forget. The 18-hole course winds through forest and around ponds, with spectacular scenic views. The terrain is long and steep on several holes so a drive cart is recommended but not necessary. The course is about an hour drive east from Portland across the Bridge of the Gods ($2 toll). Follow the signs.
