|Riverside understands that golfers enjoy the game for a variety of reasons. That is why it is paramount to strike a balance between social events, competitive events and recreational golf.|
Members enjoy competitions ranging from the Club Championship to the Member Guest Tournament - while others participate in the social events like the holiday couples' tournaments. In addition to the social and competitive activity, Riverside always provides more than enough course access for simple recreational golf with family and friends. We believe Riverside provides exactly the perfect mix of golfing opportunities as it relates to life at the country club.
In order to enhance the private club experience, the golf operation staff at Riverside provides the necessary services one would expect. Beginning with a friendly greeting from our outside services staff, to the expertise of our PGA Professionals, our focus is to provide all of the amenities and services you and your guests may need in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Major Golf Events
Three events at Riverside dominate the club throughout the year. The month of May brings the Riverside Best Ball with over 70 years of history. Two-man teams, of both members and non-members, come from throughout the Northwest to compete. This event is truly the finest better-ball competition in the State of Oregon.
July brings the playing of the Club Championship. Similar to many private clubs, this event is open to all men and women members. The championship is flighted by handicaps and age divisions and champions take home crystal awards in both gross and net divisions.
The final major Riverside events are the Ladies' and Menís Member Guest Tournaments. Three full days are required as golfers from across the Northwest and beyond come to Riverside to enjoy competition and camaraderie alike.
