The monks at Mount Angel Abbey follow the Rule of Life as set forth in the sixth-century by Saint Benedict of Nursia. The Benedictine tradition advocates a life of prayer and work.

Founded from the Swiss Abbey of Engelberg in 1882, Mount Angel strives to be a place of peace and solitude in a very busy world. This community keeps alive the ancient tradition of the choral office, the love of learning and Christian hospitality.<\/p>","post_name":"benedictine-brewing","post_type":"resource","slug":"eat-drink","name":"Eat & Drink","lat":"45.0574","lng":"-122.776","permalink":"\/see-do\/eat-drink\/beer-eat-drink\/benedictine-brewing\/"},"9":{"ID":"4333571","post_title":"Hop Harvest Hoedown","post_content":"

Founded in 1983 by Oregon native, Jim Bernau, with the dream of creating world-class Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley Vineyards has grown from a bold idea into one of the region’s leading wineries, earning the title “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers,” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Willamette Valley Vineyards approach is to grow, by hand, the highest quality fruit to produce wines of distinction, that are truly expressive of the varietal and the place where they are grown. All the vineyards, the Estate Vineyard, Tualatin Estate, and Elton vineyard, have been certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe programs since 1997. In 2007, Willamette Valley Vineyards became the first winery in the world to use sustainable cork stoppers certified by the Rainforest Alliance to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards. Willamette Valley Vineyards commitment to sustainable practices in the vineyard and winery is based on the convictions that as stewards of the land they have an obligation to walk as softly as possible, and that winegrapes grown naturally in healthy soils produce superior quality wines.

Located in the beautiful Willamette Valley, only 30 minutes from Portland, the Senior Estates in Woodburn is a private retirement community immediately adjacent to Interstate I-5. It is also only a short drive to the clear mountain streams of the Cascade Mountains or to the sparkling beaches of the Pacific Ocean. From the time the first home was completed in 1961, it has grown into a community of 1511 privately owned homes surrounding a private 18-hole golf course and a one million dollar clubhouse complex. This narrow course has a defined cut of rough and trees bordering all its fairways. There are only a dozen sand bunkers on the course, and no water hazards, so all the trouble comes from the narrow fairways. The small greens have medium speed and some undulation that includes a few severe breaks. The course was built on flat terrain, but the scenery is beautiful.<\/p>","post_name":"senior-estates-golf-country-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.1558","lng":"-122.87","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/oregon-adventurecation\/senior-estates-golf-country-club\/","terms":"an Oregon Adventurecation<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"1":{"ID":"9177","post_title":"Jammin Salmon","post_content":"","post_name":"jammin-salmon","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.1598","lng":"-122.859","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/jammin-salmon\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"2":{"ID":"90493","post_title":"The OGA Golf Course","post_content":"

In 1991, the Oregon Golf Association (OGA) commissioned a study to determine the feasibility of constructing an 18-hole golf course and the financing requirements to undertake such a monumental project. The study determined that the cost of the project, depending on its location, would most likely rule out the dream of the OGA having its own facility, barring an unforeseen miracle. That miracle came in early 1992 when the OGA was approached with an astonishing offer from Tukwila Partners Development Corporation. They were willing to donate more than 179 acres of farmland alongside their real estate development in Woodburn, Ore., for the purpose of constructing and operating a golf course on the land. The partnership between OGA and the Tukwila Partners led to the development of a three-phase construction project that began in July 1993. Phase I included the construction of the first nine holes, a driving range, course maintenance facility and a temporary clubhouse. Phase II saw the completion of the second nine holes and Phase III, completed in February 2000, includes a 14,000-square-foot clubhouse and permanent OGA headquarters.

In winter, ducks abound on the ponds, and Lincoln's, White-crowned and Golden-crowned Sparrows are around the gardens. Pileated Woodpecker, Green Heron, and Cooper's Hawk are seen regularly. Entrance fees vary by season; see www.oregongarden.org. Good birding is also found outside the gate, at ponds along Main St and Pettit Pond (just S of the main entrance).

Silver Falls offers numerous recreation opportunities including hiking, horseback riding, fishing, picnicking, swimming, biking, viewing scenery, and viewing interpretive sites.<\/p>

The Canyon Trail is a nationally recognized trail system that leads hikers along the banks of the north and south forks of Silver Creek. It takes you to ten majestic water falls, ranging from the grand South Falls (177 feet), to the delicate Drake Falls (27 feet). Four of these falls have an amphitheater-like surrounding where you can walk behind the falls and feel the misty, crisp spray.<\/p>\r\n

The park has over 25 miles of trails for hiking (14 miles of horse trails). Pets are welcome on all but 5 miles. Because the canyon trail is narrow and bordered by sharp drop-offs in spots, bicycles, skate boards, in-line skates and pets are not allowed on the canyon trail. If you have any questions about which trails will accommodate pets, check with park staff.<\/p>\r\n

At Silver Falls, you will find unique group camping areas like the Old and New Ranch buildings, Silver Creek Youth Camp, North Falls trailer and tent areas, RV, cabin and tent camping in the overnight campground. Additional cabin rentals and complete group accommodations can be found at Silver Falls Conference Center.<\/p>\r\n

Guided daytime horse trail rides for people of all abilities are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day for a fee. For more information or to make special arrangements, contact the park.<\/p>\r\n

Vital stats: A small fee or annual pass are required for day-use of the park. The campground offers 54 electrical sites, 51 tent sites (maximum site 60 feet; sites are closed Oct. 31-Apr. 15); group tent areas (3 areas); group RV areas(2 areas); horse campsites (5 sites with corrals; closed Oct. 31-Apr. 15); and 14 cabins.

Fifty years ago, the Santiam Golf Course was barely a dream. A group of seven men from the Sublimity, Aumsville and Stayton communities were instrumental in transforming their vision of a community golf course into a reality. These men wanted the golf facility to provide good golf, fun and entertainment for the families and friends of the area and to always remain affordable in price. In the meantime, inquiries to the Chamber of Commerce regarding golf facilities in the immediate area were becoming more frequent. Fortunately, a landowner of approximately 110 acres, Norm Peak, posted his land for sale. And after some negotiations, a deal was struck and arrangements to purchase the land were under way. Bill Gehlen, an attorney, filed the necessary papers with the Oregon Secretary of State recording Santiam Golf Club as a non-profit corporation, thus becoming Santiam Golf Club, Inc. Shares of stock at $257, plus 40 hours of labor, were offered to those closest to the project. After that, shares were sold at approximately $350 per share with the same 40 hours of donated labor attached as a condition of share purchase price. On March 4, 1957, these seven founders: A.J. Frank, Roy Phillipi, William Gehlen, John D. Davis, Walter D. Miller, Harmon Drushella and M. L. Morey, all golfers, were recorded as the first directors of the new corporation they had founded and directed. Although, originally, the Santiam Golf Club board consisted of 12 members, this number created too much confusion and eventually the board membership was lowered to seven members. The land was covered with brush and small trees. The designer of the course, Fred Federspiel, a golf architect, along with a couple of the founders, walked the land laying out the placement of the tees and greens according to the course blueprint. Bill Rauscher, a nearby neighbor, was hired to use his small “Cat” with a heavy disc to break up the soil and tear up roots. Stockholders of the new organization formed a human line across the fairways to pick up sticks and roots, which they moved down the line into a pile and later burned. They did this on all fairways of the original nine. Most of this work was done evenings after the regular workday. Rauscher used his small Cat to push soil together to form the basic greens and tees. Then teams of five or six men per green with shovels were assigned to form final shapes. The greens surfaces were spaded to the depth of the shovel and to facilitate cup placements in the finished greens all rocks were removed down to the size of pea gravel. The work went along throughout the summer. In or about September, Rauscher formed the newly cleared fairways and roughs. The grass seed was sown on all the worked surfaces and the greens were ready for play the forthcoming spring! While the course was being prepared, the first clubhouse was being built. Luther Nokelby, with the help of other stockholders, was in charge of construction. The building consisted of a pro shop, storage area, small kitchen, coffee bar and clubroom. Sometime after the first nine opened a dining room named the Sandtrap was added. In the early 1960s, the board approved the expansion of the course to eighteen holes. To finance the cost of the new nine, a loan of $40,000 was secured from First National Bank of Oregon. George Shafer, the first greenskeeper, and board President Ralph Lulay, along with architect, Federspiel, walked the grounds for the new nine marking the placement of the new tees and greens. The brush was beaten down with Rauscher’s heavy disc to begin clearing the terrain. A large Cat and scraper were brought in to do the earth moving. The ground was covered with rocks, so the first process was to pick up rocks mechanically and deposit them under the greens to be built. The soil that was to form the greens was dug up from a couple of deep ditches which earlier had been dug to help prevent water from running across the fairways. Topsoil was also obtained from land near the highway. Shafer, who closely monitored the forming of the greens was also instrumental in shaping the lake along the 5th fairway, this lake ultimately named “Lake George”. Some fairways were renumbered and the new holes became predominantly the front nine. The eighteen-hole course was amazingly ready for play the following summer! Several years later, in February 1967, as recommended by the accounting firm of Arthur Young & Co., the articles of incorporation were amended to establish the corporation as a “for profit” company. In the following May, the golf club purchased 17 adjoining acres from Clarence Zuber. Two years later, in 1970, a liquor license was acquired. The clubhouse has gone through several alterations and changes in cuisine. Following a clubhouse fire in 1980, Kay Kelly built a larger and more adequate clubhouse and restaurant. The first new restaurant managers were Kent Hazelwood and Paul Hartwell. The restaurant was named the Ford Garage. This was followed by Mara’s (an Italian cuisine), then LaEstrellita’s Mexican Restaurant, and is currently The Santiam Steak House. The facility is now complete with a seating capacity of 180; including a sunroom and patio area catering to tournaments, special parties, banquets and wedding receptions. There have been many improvements in recent years. All the greens have been re-modeled to USGA standards. Computerized irrigation has since been strategically installed. A new, large maintenance building, cart shed and many other on-course improvements, including concrete and\/or paved cart paths along all fairways have added to our movement into the 21st century. . Many improvements on the second nine were completed with the use of heavy equipment donated by Frank Lumber Co., Lulay Bros. Lumber Co., Roy Philippi, “Dutch” Deetz and others. Stockholders have contributed many hours of volunteer labor. The pro-shop is now fully-equipped, sporting the latest golf merchandise and attire. For several years, Jack White, the first golf pro, oversaw the facility. Jack Coppedge, the 6th Santiam Golf Club professional held the position for many years until his death in 1997. Sporadic remodeling continues and the building has undergone many major interior improvements and has recently been crowned with a new roof. The driving range and the parking lot have been expanded to facilitate tournament crowds. The corporation, owned by 306 plus stockholders, holds its annual meeting in the company banquet room, whereas in compliance with the company by-laws, an incumbent director whose 3-year term is up, is either voted back in by the stockholders or is succeeded by a new director to hold sacred the voice and interests of the stockholders and the corporation and to not lose sight of the original dream of the founding fathers. The founding fathers would be so proud to see that the beautiful Santiam Golf Club, Inc., has flourished to 21st century standards and that their vision of an affordable, family-oriented entertainment facility continues to be upheld to this day.<\/p>","post_name":"santiam-golf-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8253","lng":"-122.823","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/oregon-adventurecation\/santiam-golf-club\/","terms":"an Oregon Adventurecation<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"18":{"ID":"670827","post_title":"Riverswest Flyfishing Service","post_content":"","post_name":"riverswest-flyfishing-service","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.9028","lng":"-122.946","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/riverswest-flyfishing-service\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"19":{"ID":"9234","post_title":"L W Enterprises","post_content":"","post_name":"l-w-enterprises","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.7485","lng":"-122.866","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/l-w-enterprises\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"21":{"ID":"9770","post_title":"Zach Morris Flyfishing","post_content":"","post_name":"zach-morris-flyfishing","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.9128","lng":"-122.971","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/zach-morris-flyfishing\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"23":{"ID":"9492","post_title":"Rivers Edge Guide Service","post_content":"","post_name":"rivers-edge-guide-service-2","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8741","lng":"-123.001","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/rivers-edge-guide-service-2\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"24":{"ID":"9368","post_title":"Northwest Trails Fishing Adven","post_content":"","post_name":"northwest-trails-fishing-adven","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8767","lng":"-123.002","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/northwest-trails-fishing-adven\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"29":{"ID":"666681","post_title":"Helms Guide Service","post_content":"","post_name":"helms-guide-service","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8728","lng":"-123.038","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/helms-guide-service\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"30":{"ID":"8763","post_title":"Barts Guide Service Llc","post_content":"","post_name":"barts-guide-service-llc","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8814","lng":"-123.058","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/barts-guide-service-llc\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"31":{"ID":"9350","post_title":"North American Outfitters","post_content":"","post_name":"north-american-outfitters","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.9047","lng":"-123.047","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/north-american-outfitters\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"}}},"success":true,"html":""}
