Golf has emerged as a major Central Oregon attraction, drawing visitors and new residents alike and is one of the reasons Bend real estate is appealing. We have compiled a directory listing public and private courses in the area, ranging from a nine-hole par 3 to championship courses that have hosted the Jeld-Wen Tradition, Ghost Tree Invitational and the Pacific Amateur Golf Classic.
There are private courses associated with gated communities and upscale resorts plus a wide selection of municipal, commercial and resort courses open to the public. Many of the latter also offer memberships that confer club privileges or reduced fees, or special packages for resort guests. What they have in common is some of the most spectacular scenery in Central Oregon, which is to say some of the most spectacular on the globe, plus great weather for most of the year.
