We are proud stewards of the game that is not only played here...it thrives here. Waverley members unite around a golf course renowned for its riverfront setting, pristine conditions, acclaimed design and year-round playability – and a culture that celebrates the game's most time-honored traditions while embracing the creation of plenty of new ones.
Original designer H. Chandler Egan would still recognize his masterpiece more than 100 years after completing his classic layout. Thoughtfully updated and restored by Gil Hanse, this parkland style course features stellar conditioning, short grass, wonderfully tilted greens, strategic bunkering and regular elevation changes throughout the undulating property.
In addition to top-tier golf, Waverley is widely regarded as having one of the best year-round golf practice facilities in the Pacific Northwest, featuring a full-length natural grass driving range, a dedicated short game area, and manicured practice greens.
Waverley's Field House offers members the services and amenities necessary to complement their golf game. Merchandise, lessons, tournament sign-up information and attentive service welcome Waverley members. The entire professional staff welcomes the opportunity to outfit our members, teach the technical aspects of the golf swing, or assist with the mental preparation necessary to excel at golf.
Originally known as the "Trolley House" this historic structure harkens back to the "Riverside Links" and Golf Junction. Waverley's Junior Clubhouse was a stop along the Interurban Ardgour rail line. The back of the facility still has the double doors that allowed riders to wait in relative comfort. Today the Junior Clubhouse serves nearly the same purpose. Juniors often wait in relative comfort as the rain falls or wait for parents to pick them up after an afternoon of golf. The Golf Professional staff utilizes this facility for junior camps and clinics as juniors entertain themselves with siblings and friends. This historic structure is one more example of the rich and wonderful history that surrounds the Waverley campus.
Caddies have been part of the golf culture at Waverley throughout the Club's history, and now distinguishes us amongst other golf clubs. Our experienced Caddie Master pairs players with individual caddies based on each golfer's skills, abilities and disposition.
Our caddie pool is made up of young people throughout the region who learn important golf and life skills as they assist players. Nearly 50 Waverley caddies have been named Evans Scholars, a selective program which provides winners fully paid college education.
As one of the first golf clubs in the West, significant chapters of golf's heritage have been written at Waverley, including the earliest U.S. International Golf Match, the first Oregon Amateur Golf Championship, and seven USGA Championships over the years.
The game's best ambassadors are part of our history, and revered traditions like the green jacket presentation at The Masters are said by some to have originated here.
In addition to honoring the past, we also invest heartily in golf's future, supporting generations in and around the game, from Evans Caddie Scholars to tomorrow's touring professionals, continuing our foundational role promoting amateur golf in the Pacific Northwest.
