Since opening in 2000, Mallard Creek Golf Course & RV Resort has steadily grown in popularity as a favorite Oregon RV-Golf destination. Located in Lebanon, about 35 miles south of Salem, the state capital, Mallard Creek is set in the picturesque Willamette Valley just 20 minutes from Interstate 5.
The RV park and championship 18-hole course is 6,938 yards and has many wide fairways and lots of water. The most challenging hole is the 549-yard, sixth. Horseshoe-shaped, the sixth hole has a never-ending dogleg left, which is good for left-handed golfers who tend to slice.
What`s more is Mallard Creek features two long par 4s, including the 470-yard fifth and the 482-yard 17th. The ninth hole has the distinction of being the course’s longest at 581 yards, and the number one handicap as well. The interesting layout includes number 18, at 575-yards, running parallel to the ninth hole, with both finishing at the clubhouse.
