On these pages you will find everything you need to know to make your trip to McNary Golf Club the best experience possible.


McNary Golf Club lies in the Mid-Willamette Valley City of Keizer, on the site that once was the homestead of Charles McNary (1874-1944), prominent Oregon Citizen, Senator, Lawyer, Law School Dean, Supreme Court Justice and the 1940 Vice-Presidential running mate of Wendell Wilkie. Since he was an ardent golfer, it is appropriate that the course was named in his honor at its opening in 1962.

The Club is a semi-private classic Parkland Course located in the central Willamette Valley. McNary is a challenging 6,239-yard par-71 championship layout that is playable year-round. With lush tree-lined fairways, true and consistent greens, lakes and creeks, it offers a memorable golfing experience. There are four tee choices with two sets of combination tees that provide a course length and difficulty to suit players of all abilities. Claggett Creek comes into play on holes 1, 9, 10 and 18. The challenge and beauty of the course has also been augmented with several small lakes with fountains.
