Welcome to the Portland Golf Club Website for the 2015 Golf Season

As always, at this time of year, 
not all pages will be complete.  We still need information on a few outing dates.  We will meet with Jerry in mid March to finalize his tournament dates.  Mark, from the Winchester Golf Club, will be finalizing the Eastern Indiana Senior Schedule by mid March, plus bits and pieces of other info.  We will update each page as soon as we get new information.  (you can see when this site was last updated by looking under our logo in the upper left corner)  But for now, you can go through what we have and start thinking about your 2015 golf season here at the Portland Golf Club.


We hope that your Holidays were filled with family and fun and that you are getting through this winter season in good stride.  As we do every year, we are hoping for an early spring so we can get back to the game we all enjoy.  

The pro shop will remain closed to the end of February.  We plan to open on March 1.  Our hours will be dependent upon the weather and we will keep you informed on times.  Please stop by and say Hi!

If you need something in the meantime, contact Dave at 765-730-2885 or Charlie at 317-508-0953.  Please be safe during the rest of these cold and snowy days of winter.

Several changes for 2015

#1  There is a BIG change in the Men's Leagues for 2015.  Due to the lousy Springs that have disrupted our Spring Leagues over the past several Springs, we will NOT be having a Spring League this year.  The Summer League, now to be known simply as the "Men's League", will be extended from 12 weeks to 14 weeks.  We plan to start on Wednesday, May 20th and have a 7 week session.  We will then take the Fair Week off and end with another 7 week session.  The league will end the last Wednesday in August.  We have not finalized how what the payout format will look like at this time.  Check it out at Mens League Schedule.  We hope you can participate and don't worry if you have to miss some dates, as we always have several quality subs.

#2  Along with the Net Match Play Tournament and the 2-Man Team Match Play Tournament, we are having a Gross Match Play Tournament in 2015.  This will be played using the same format as the Net Match Play, only no strokes will be given.   You can see information about all three of these Match Play Events at Mens Tourney Schedule.  We may even try to arrange for some Spring or Fall evening 9 hole events: such a a 1 man scramble or worst shot scramble, member/guest, throw out your worst hole score, just to name a few.

#3  We want to experiment with changing the par of the golf course to 72.  We will have a tee station farther back on Hole #5.  When you play from there, #5 will be played as a par 5.  We are also putting a tee station farther back on Hole #18 to make this a "risk / reward" par 4 hole.  We had a few people play these holes this way late last Fall and liked playing both holes the new way.  You do not have to play the holes the new way every time you play, but we would like for you to give it a try and then give us your feedback on each hole.  We will make a decision sometime in the summer on whether to make the changes permanent.

#4  Dave has painted various parts of the pro shop to brighten it up.  He also painted in the men's restroom, the snack bar, and the storage room to the north of the snack bar.  Plans are being made for sprucing up around the outside of the clubhouse with some painting to follow.  

#5  All flagsticks have been painted and new flags are already on each flagstick.  With our exploring changes to holes #5 and #18, you may see different mowing patterns, especially for hole #18 and along the creek on #1.  

#6  We mentioned in 2014 that the Indiana Golf Association increased the cost to us for the Blue Golf Handicap Program. We did not increase your cost for this in 2014, but the cost of your Blue Golf Handicap will go up from $30 to $35 in 2015.  As with everything else, the cost of operating this system is not immune to increases. Please remember, that you must be part of this system to play in the men's league or any of the club's tournaments, including Jerry's monthly tournaments. We appreciate your understanding of this situation.

#7  As you can see on this page, we now have links to other pages at both the top and bottom of most pages. We hope this makes your navigation of this site a little easier.  We do our best to keep everything on our website as up-to-date as possible.  Please refer to it often for course conditions, event results, course restrictions due to outings, along with the many other activities that take place at the Portland Golf Club.
