Eastmoreland Golf Course
I wish I could be of more help in describing the Eastmoreland Golf Course. It is a very popular golf course and has a driving range, a putting green, and 18 holes from par 3 to par 5. There is a hole by hole course description on the web site, below.
From walking on local streets around the golf course, I can tell you that it isn't unusual for balls to wind up in yards across the street from the course, or in various other neighborhood locations.
While I am not much into golf, I can tell you that the restaurant offers quite good food for the price, particularly during the lunch hour. I have a separate tip on the restaurant, however.
Events at Reed College
Just like any college campus, Reed College has a number of visiting speakers, theatre performences, musical performances, artistic displays, and various other items that help benefit the college community. Usually, these events are open to the public, and sometimes they are even advertised in the local newspaper. These events earn a place here on VirtualTourst as they are pretty much the only significant events of any sort that occur in the Eastmoreland area. Thus, they are the only significant "thing to do" here (except for the Rhododendron Garden and the Reed College Canyon, which I have covered in the "Off the Beaten Path section as they are seldom advertised at all).
On many occasions the events are offered free of charge, while other events (such as certain theatre and musical performances) require the purchase of a ticket.
The exact details of the events are highly variable, and the "quality" depends a great deal on the opinions and tastes of the observer as well. Some of these events can be a little off the wall, but isn't any event at most college campuses?
Art displays are usually found in the library, while speakers and musical events are in the Eliot Hall Chapel (2nd floor of building, at top of stairs on west end). Certain other speakers may be in one of the lecture halls in one of the other buildings. Certain musical events are held in the Kaul Auditorium as well. FIND A CAMPUS MAP or ask any student that you will find anywhere on campus for directions.
Reed sometimes advertises these events in the Willamette Week newspaper (free paper that comes out on Wednesdays and is distributed all over the Portland area) plus information is also available on the web site, below. As you can see in photos 2 and 3, sometimes the events are only advertised on campus flyers - but ususally (but not always) those events are aimed only at Reed College students. Canyon Day (advertisement shown in photo 2) is a cleanup and environment restoration event of the Reed College wetlands area.
The official address of the college is 3203 SE Woodstock Blvd, Portland OR 97202-8199. However, there is almost no parking at the campus driveways that come off of Woodstock. See instructions below. Bus routes #19 and #10 go past campus, but #10 is on the north side of campus and requires a bit more time to get to the main part of campus where the events are located. #75 goes close to campus, on SE 39th Avenue.
