Men’s Rowing

In the fall of 1926, two rowing shells arrived in Corvallis by train with the California football team. They were a gift from the California Rowing Club and, at the time, they were stored in the basement of Fairbanks Hall. By 1929, the Oregon State Rowing Club (OSRC) was under way and won its first race against the University of Washington.

By 1935 the crew was traveling up and down the coast in search of competition. Crew was temporarily suspended during World War II, but received a tremendous boost in 1950 when the OSU business office purchased 160 acres of land on the east side of the Willamette River about a mile from campus. The new land would be developed into the Trysting Tree Golf Club and a waterfront facility that would become the home of Oregon State University rowing.

OSU Rowing Facilities

2011 marked the successful completion of Phase I of the Oregon State Boathouse.

Phase I of the Oregon State Boathouse Project includes new locker rooms for the men’s and women’s rowing teams, boat storage and a small meeting area. The $1.5 million project, funded by individual donors and the Athletic Department, will aid in the process of making the Beavers’ rowing facility one of the best in the Pac-12 Conference.

Future phases include a new workout area, coaches’ offices, and a team meeting space.

The OSU Boathouse is located at North Riverfront Park off Highway 34, adjacent to Trysting Tree Golf Club.
