Offering great views of Mount Hood is the popular 18-hole 6,150-yard Indian Creek Golf Course (3605 Brookside Dr., 541/386-3009, www.indiancreekgolf.com, $38–48).
A little farther from town is Hood River Golf Course (1850 Country Club Rd., 541/386-3009, www.hoodrivergolf.com, daylight–dark, $28). It has 18 holes that are a bit hillier than at Indian Creek, as well as beautiful views of Mount Hood, Mount Adams, elk, and geese. Come in fall if only to see the spectacular foliage.
