The Ridge Course at Eagle Crest Resort is more than a 'driver's dream' in central Oregon

REDMOND, Ore. -- There's plenty of room to let it rip off the tee on the Ridge Course at Eagle Crest Resort. That's why it's known as a "driver's dream."

But you won't score well here unless you hit accurate approach shots and can read the subtle breaks on the greens.

The John Thronson design plays just less than 7,000 yards from the tips and features constant elevation changes, plenty of challenges and stunning views of the Cascade Mountains.

The 219-yard, par-3 third is considered the signature hole. Hitting from an elevated tee down to a skinny green surrounded by bunkers with a lake on the right.

There are plenty of lodging options for guests at Eagle Crest Resort -- from the lodge to chalets, townhomes and homes -- making it one of the finest in central Oregon.
