Great day of golf

Pronghorn GC in Bend Oregon is an excellent course that was both challenging and is pristine condition, Fast greens, tight lies in the fairways and lots of traps on elevated greens made the course memorable. The staff from the bag check to the golf shop was professional and friendly as any group I have seen. All in all, a great day spent on the golf course.

Very nice course!

I had been recommended to play this course that was designed by Jack Nicklaus and we couldn't wait to play . It was 97 out and very hot. But we kept cool and had an amazing time. I will be back, it was such an awesome course.

Wonderful Course

Course was in great shape and is well maintained. The greens are fast and firm. The front nine is pretty straightforward but the back nine is visually challenging. I found the back nine very difficult when playing it for the first time. Be prepared for significant wind in the late afternoon.

Very nice course

This is a great course but not $170 great. We played at 4 pm and got the twilight rate of $90 and it was worth it. A very nice course with unique elements like dead trees in the middle of the fairways. Not a stunning course but a great one to play.

All Star Track

During a week-long trip to Oregon, a buddy and I played 7 rounds in 5 days. Pronghorn was round 1 and it was a blast. Course condition was impeccable. Pace of play was impeccable. Almost every hole was interesting.

One of my playing partners routinely found his drives off the fairway and was able to keep playing. Most of the holes were forgiving enough to allow for a pitch out vs. just losing a ball.

The only hole I didn't like was No. 11. The trap seemed oddly placed in the fairway. Overall though, an All Star track that I can't wait to get back to.

jimpic, Oregon resident here who has been to Bend for lots of golf over the years. I would recommend, Aspen Lakes, Crosswater, Pronghorn, as the top courses there. Second tier would be Sunriver meadows, Juniper, Widgi and Eagle Ridge. don't bother with Tetherow, too overpriced for what you get. If you have a connection for Bend CC, that is a must play.

cheers!

Fast Greens

The course was very challenging. Some holes required a long tee shot to get over stuffy rough or water. The greens were extremely fast and hard to hold.

But overall it was an enjoyable day and very friendly staff.

a nicklaus gem (is there any other kind?)

our golf group recently hit 5 courses in the Bend area for a trip/tournament. we chose Pronghorn as our final round destination. having noticed over the years that i am a big fan of nicklaus designs i was very excited for this course.

i wouldn't say it disappointed, but bend offers plenty of stiff competition, and this ended up being my second favorite course of the trip to Tetherow.

however, this course is magic! the conditions were immaculate. the pro shop, the caddies, and the starters were all super friendly and welcoming.

it's a pretty long course, so expect to hit a lot of drivers. i prefer a little more variety, but didn't have much choice. definitely a good idea to keep the ball in play too... it gets pretty punishing when you go offline.

the whole property is quite beautiful, and the holes fit the landscape nicely. i wouldn't say there is a huge variation between holes, but it all flows nicely.

unfortunately i chose this round to play my worst of the trip, so i have some inherent negativity about the course, but just based on the layout and the condition this course is a must play. the price is steep, but it definitely has an exclusive vibe. just check out the google maps view of the course... there is nothing around for miles! very cool!
