Leisure Hour Golf Club

Portland, Oregon


Leisure Hour Golf Club is a Portland, Oregon area golf and social club founded in 1944.  The club remained active since its inception to encourage access to the game of golf for all community members.  Leisure Hour club members enjoy the game of golf through regular golf outings, tournaments and programs designed for skilled amateurs, youth and those new to the game. 

Leisure Hour has a focus on involving the African American community but is a multicultural organization and welcomes all members!  There is plenty of fun, competition and friendship for golfers at all skill levels.  Leisure Hour Golf Club is also affiliated with the Western States Golf Association, Northwest Golf Association and the USGA. 

The continuing success of Leisure Hour Golf Club is achieved through the generous support of Club Members as well as from our community and business sponsors.  We appreciate their support!
