This is a very demanding starting hole that requires a tee shot to the left center of the fairway. A menacing bunker protects the entry to the right side of the green, which is only 17 yards in depth. Fanno Creek guards the left and back side of this great hole. The rhododendrons, which add beauty to the bank behind the green, were donated in the 1950’s by club member Ray Lesher.

Donald Junor, born in Aberdeenshire Scotland in 1889, came to Portland Golf Club in 1920. Five of his brothers were Greens Keepers or Golf Professionals. He was the oldest Greens Keeper on the Pacific Coast in years of experience. He was the first to use a tractor on he golf course and the first to water greens and fairways- truly the dean of his trade.
