Test Your Swing on Oregon’s Golf Courses

Oregon is home to more than 200 championship-level golf courses, many designed by legends of the game.

If a game with ocean views appeals, book a tee time on the Bandon Dunes Golf Course. Designed by David McLay Kidd, it runs through a largely natural environment and features spectacular Pacific views.

Meadow Lakes Golf Course in Prineville in Central Oregon is considered one of Oregon’s “7 Golf Gems.” The course has huge greens and gorgeous scenery. Pronghorn Golf Resort in Bend is a Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole course, also among the Gems. It’s a desert course, and many holes enjoy picturesque views of the Cascade Mountains. Other Gems include the Courses at The Resort at The Mountain in Welches and The Running Y Ranch Resort course, designed by Arnold Palmer, in Klamath Falls.

The Wildhorse Resort Golf Course in Pendleton combines Scottish-style links golf with more traditional American resort greens. In Ontario, you can book time on the greens at the Country View Golf Course and the Ontario Golf Club. Meanwhile, the Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in North Plains, near Portland, offers a challenging par-71 course that is open to the public. 

Country View Golf Course

Opened in 1999, the Country View Golf Course offers nine holes over 5,660 yards from the longest tees. The course holds a slope rating of 104 alongside a 66.4 USGA rating.

Golfers may also perfect their swing at the course's driving range. The course is located eight miles from the center of Ontario and can be found just off U.S. Highway 26/Central Oregon Highway in eastern Oregon.

Ontario Golf Club

Opened since 1964, Ontario Golf Club features 18 holes and measures 6,670 yards of total tee space. The course offers a slope rating of 115, a 69.4 USGA rating, and it features four sets of tees for different experience levels.

Guests can practice their swing at the driving range or enjoy a meal at the country club restaurant. The club is located near eastern Oregon's Ontario Airport, about three miles west of downtown Ontario on 4th Avenue.

Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club

When you travel through Oregon, be sure to visit the Portland metro area, and, more importantly, bring your clubs along for the ride. Book a tee time soon for the Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, which is just northwest from downtown Portland, and a short drive from nearby Forest Grove.

You'll have two courses to choose from at Pumpkin Ridge when you visit. You can play the Ghost Creek Golf Course, which is a par-71, is 6,839 yards from the back tees, and is open to the public. You'll also find the Witch Hollow Golf Club. With a par of 72, and a course rating of 75.1, Witch Hollow yields 18 holes of challenging fun – it is, however, a private course.
