Charbonneau has been helping people discover the game of golf for thirty years. Sited in the heart of a beautifully maintained, resort-like community, the course is an acclaimed, middle-distance, game-development facility. For players with variable skills who want to improve or hone, with good instruction, in an inviting atmosphere, this is the answer. Originally designed and built in 1975, Charbonneau's three-nine layout has matured into a premier middle-distance playing and teaching facility, open to the public every day except Christmas, from 7 am until sundown. Course maintenance and refinement has been continual, not only firming greens and allowing year-round play, but also enhancing landscaping and scenery - this is a good walk unspoiled. Even the weather helps. Charbonneau lies in what meteorologists call the "plains weather belt" and avoids the windy, cold weather found only a few miles north. Charbonneau's pleasant, rolling mix of fairways and lakes is located just south of Wilsonville, off I-5 at exit 282. It's easy to find; a stone's throw from Portland or any French Prairie town.
