Portland Parks & Recreation and Kemper Sports will host a grand reopening of the Colwood Golf Center in northeast Portland on Sunday, July 30, a free, family-friendly event from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. You’re invited to enjoy free range balls and rounds of golf, golf lessons; meet the staff, and enjoy food, music and more.
“Colwood Golf Center is a tremendous site for relaxation and recreation for people of all ages and backgrounds,” says Portland Parks & Recreation Director Mike Abbaté. “And it is a real asset for both the Cully neighborhood and the city as a whole.”
Portland Parks & Recreation , in partnership with the Trust for Public Lands, acquired a portion of the former Colwood National Golf Course at 7313 N.E. Columbia Blvd. in 2014, and began redeveloping the property into a unique 9-hole golf course and environmental asset for Portlanders.
The second phase of the improvement project was completed in the spring , and included significant investment in infrastructure upgrades. The project also expanded the Colwood driving range, adding more hitting stalls and a large patio area for outdoor dining.
