Big Meadow Golf Course at Black Butte Ranch is among Oregon's finest

Big Meadow Golf Course is one of two 18-hole designs at Black Butte Ranch in central Oregon.

The Robert Muir Graves layout, which opened in the early 1970s, has received a four-star rating from Golf Digest and has been recognized among the top 75 golf resorts in the United States. Despite being more than 7,000 yards from the back tees, Big Meadow is relatively easy to walk. The 14th hole, a par 4, features an elevated tee shot that offers a great view of Three Fingered Jack in the background.
