Walter and Muriel turned the nursery they had started in the late 1930’s into a golf course that Walter helped design. The two of them, at age 65, felt a golf course would be a great way to fill their days during retirement. Now you are invited to come play one of the most beautiful courses in rural Oregon. Country landscapes provide the backdrop for the course and majestic Mt. Hood is ever-present in the distance as you make your way through the 9 hole course.
We are very excited to announce that Greenlea has reopened with new ownership under the instruction and care of PGA Professional, Scott Shields and his wife Nicole.
Scott’s passion for the game developed early, as a kid he played Jr. Golf locally, earned himself a spot on the Sandy High School Varsity golf team and pursued his goal of becoming a PGA professional at Portland State University. Scott has long ties to Greenlea golf course as he worked as a summer hand in his teens. In the mid 1980’s Scott began his career with Gresham Golf Course and became Gresham’s exclusive PGA professional. Scott has had the opportunity to provide lessons to the community including Sandy High School and Gresham’s golf teams. With over 30 years of experience Scott has great ideas for the course and is very excited to keep the history of Greenlea Golf Course alive.
Greenlea Golf Course is a fun 9-hole course located in the quaint little town of Boring, Oregon.
Our course is made up of five par 3’s and four par 4’s designed to test any level of experience.
Greenlea welcomes all golfers no matter the skill level as we pride ourselves in being family friendly and a great learning environment.
Come stop by the Proshop, grab a complimentary cup of coffee and say hello, we have some great things in store for 2015!
