Offers Serious Golf and Serious Fun


Central Oregon The Central Oregon communities of Bend, Sunriver, Redmond,


Sisters and La Pine rest in an outdoor mecca at the eastern foot of the Cascade Mountain Range where the overlap of national forest and high desert provides a rare diversity and quality of golf. With 300 days of sunshine a year, Central Oregon is pure golf nirvana.


Central Oregon offers a challenge


for every golfer on the Central Oregon Golf Trail, which features 26 golf cours- es, three of which are ranked on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s 100 Great- est Public Courses.” The list includes Sunriver’s famed Crosswater Club (No. 49), Pronghorn Club’s Nicklaus Course (No. 28) and Tetherow Golf Club (No. 66). Spectacular hidden gems—from pine-tree framed beauties like the 36 holes at Black Butte Ranch to desert masterpieces like Brasada Canyons— are waiting to be discovered. With such a spectacular natural


setting, it would be criminal to have such incredible golf and not find a way for amateur golfers to experience it all. Which is why 17 years ago the Cen- tral Oregon region decided to host the annual Pacific Amateur Golf Classic (PacAm). At the PacAm, players come from all over the country and beyond to compete in a three-day, stroke-play net tournament. The event is open to any amateur with an established USGA handicap, and participants compete


on a different Central Oregon golf course each day. Competitors with the game to finish in the top four of each of the handicapped flights advance to the championship round at Sunriver’s famed Crosswater Course. When the adrenaline rush from standing below towering pines at the foot of the Cascades and competing in the largest amateur tournament in the West inevitably comes, one can’t help but wonder if this place is indeed perfect. Daily nonstop flights into Red-


mond/Bend Airport (RDM) from most major western cities make traveling to Central Oregon a breeze. The region is family friendly with


opportunities to swim, fish, bike or hike around serene crystal-clear mountain lakes, rushing rivers, majestic ponderosa pines and snow-capped peaks. And because nearly every golf course is just minutes away from downtown Bend, a hub of culinary delights and the heart of a booming craft brewery scene, visitors will have ample time to experience Cen- tral Oregon’s famous laid-back lifestyle.
