I was disappointed at the conditions. They air rated a couple weeks ago and there was no mention. Wish it would have nicer
Great course with a beautiful and challenging layout.
This was a nice resort golf course. We did not know when we booked that they had aereated the golf course. The greens were grey with sand. There was no bag drop, drink cart, or snack bar. However, the bar/restaurant was open. The bartender was friendly as well as the person in the pro shop. I think this would have been a fun course to play had it been in good condition. It would have been nice to know before we were on the first green that they had sanded. Too bad Tee Off didn't have a note about it. I would have played another course.
Must play course
Another fantastic round at Pronghorn! The weather was perfect, the course was in phenomenal condition (as it has been every visit). Our twosome was paired with a single, and we were allowed to physically distance while still enjoying the comradery of golf.
From tee box to green, and everything in between - phenomenal care for the course and terrific work by all the grounds crew! We snuck the round in, day before aeriation of the course - will certainly look forward to coming back next year!
5/5, 10/10, 100/100 to all the staff involved with the facility!
What a treat
We were scheduled to play the Nicklaus course, but a junior tournament resulted in backed-up play so they gave us the opportunity to play the Fazio course.
Favorite holes: Hole 8 is so unique with a forced carry par 3 over a canyon with caves. I hit the green but walked down to check it out, if you hit short you'll need to hit a flop shop up about 35 feet in the air onto the green. A lot of fun risk reward holes, especially hole 14 which is a drive-able par 4 with a long narrow green. And hole 17 is the first course I've played with two greens with the flag changing based on the day.
Overall the course is in immaculate shape, and is very peaceful with a sense of isolation on most holes. The fairways are generous if you pick the right club and target, and the greens have a fair amount of contouring which mean you need to miss in the right areas. It's a strategic course with many forced carries if you want to attack the pins/bomb it/go for the green in two, and has ample areas to lay up for a shorter approach into the green. The staff made you feel welcomed and were more than accommodating. Would play again if given the chance.
Slow play can ruin a good day
Perfect weather, perfect course conditions, but slow play with no course marshal to police it made for a long, and less than enjoyable, day on the course. It was 2.5 hours at the turn and then we were allowed to play through. We had a few holes before we caught up with the next group and followed them in at a reasonable pace. Overall time just over 4.5 hours. The course is beautiful with plenty of variety in the holes. Often it is difficult to tell where the actual edge of the green is as the surrounding grass is often cut very short as well. Pronghorn is expensive by Central Oregon standards. But if you can get a discounted green fee (still expensive!) it can be very worth it.
Best public course in Bend
I played Widgi, Crooked River, Quail Run and Pronghorn on this summer trip. Pronghorn was the best. Gorgeous course design, beautiful terrain. But beware, this course is BRUTAL on mid to high handicaps. If you shoot 85, 100-105 will likely be your score.
Truly great course
Without doubt one of the best courses in the Pacific northwest. Masterpiece of golf course design, perfectly integrated into the high desert landscape. Very tough but very fun,. Demands thoughtful shotmaking and rewards careful course management. Consistently in superb playing condition.
Expensive, needs staff attention!
Too many unattended divots in fairway. No information on hole configuration. No hole numbers on tee boxes and hard to distinguish the color of tee markers (silver, golf rust). Not worth $200 a round!
The course won...
Played as part of a buddy trip. Played golds. Stayed at resort, paid $139. Due to COVID, not fore-caddie--would have been helpful. Many blind tee shots and approaches to greens. On #8, blind tee shot over rise--all four of my group hit their lines, expected to be on fairway & in play--all 4 in the water hazard on R!!! Unfair! Some very hard, blind approaches to greens. Especially for first time walkers, the fore-caddie and a yardage book is a MUST! All that said, the course was in great shape and had some truly wonderful golf holes. Felt tortured by the course in the end. Not sure I want another crack!
Not worth the money
Played on a Friday, there was no beverage cart and no martial!. Got stuck behind two foursomes who were playing at a 5+hour pace. Un-Acceptable for that level of course and $170 green fee. Fairways were soggy and too tightly mowed.
Birthday round of golf
Day 2 of back to back days for my birthday. Course was in great shape, pace of play was solid, what’s not to like! Will probably be the last visit to the course for some time, as the deals have vanished from the app I use to book tee times and $200+ for a round is pricey for me, but when they are back - I will be back!
Another great round at Pronghorn
Day 1 of back to back days for my birthday. Course was in great shape, pace of play was solid, what’s not to like!
Great round, but don’t make people share cart during covid
As the title states, it was a great round and the course was in great shape as always.
However, you should not make people share a cart - and certainly shouldn’t try to charge them additional when people don’t live in the same household. This is during the covid-19 outbreak - and while it might be your normal policy to not allow more than 2 carts per foursome - this is not a “normal time.”
It made people very uncomfortable, not just in the group I was in. Overheard others on my previous visit to the course, talking about it as well.
Course is great, staff is great, but come on - don’t make people share a cart when they are not in the same household.
