This 18-hole private ( but open to guests of the ranch) course is northeast of Bend. The course is very open, very attractive, and very well maintained with beautiful views of the Cascades. Although open, there are many places where you can get into trouble with the encroaching desert and well-positioned traps. Forward tees provide great benefit for better distance and angles. Holes are far apart and layout goes up and down; a cart is suggested.
Built in 2007. Hosted Oregon Open in 2009 and 2016.
Why It Is There
Built as part of the Brasada Resort, developed by Jeld-Wen Companies.
I Wish I Would Have Known Before I Played
Greens are in great condition and look like they have many breaks. But don’t over-read breaks. In general, putts break towards Bend. Uphill putts are generally straight.
Did You Know
The trellis after the 18th hole was added as part of the development. Also, when it opened, it was the longest course in Central Oregon. The 15th hole was named in 2017 by the OGA as one of the most interesting holes in Oregon.
Water application is controlled by a system that automatically shuts off when it rains. The course has placed several bird houses on the course to encourage bird wildlife. The course annually hosts a tournament to support Toys For Tots that is open to the public.
Why Play This Course
It is a very attractive course, with spectacular views and interesting holes, that is very well maintained (and the resort is very nice).
