Eagle Crest Resort - The Challenge Course
Eagle Crest features all of the elements that have made Central Oregon a golf Mecca. Blessed with almost 300 days of sunshine per year and nearly year-round golf Eagle Crest offers a longer booking window and flexibility for travelers.
Featuring some of the finest golf in the Northwest, Eagle Crest’s three courses are carved out of an ancient juniper forest nestled at the foot of the majestic Cascades and perched on the rim of the Deschutes River. You will enjoy a view of eight snow-capped cascade peaks as you travel along the sparkling lakes, beautifully tiered greens, and emerald green fairways lined with those ancient unique trees.
The Challenge Course:
Don’t let the yardage fool you. The Challenge Course at Eagle Crest Resort is a real test where you’ll need an extra-sharp short game and savvy course management skills to have any chance at scoring well. This is definitely not an executive course. In 2006 the Challenge Course was named the Pacific Northwest’s best short course by Links magazine. This appropriately named Par 63 course has “FUN” written all over it! And will provide a “Challenge” for any golfer. Opportunities abound with nine par threes to gun for. This course is perfect for those dreaming of a hole-in-one. The Key to scoring your best is having good distance control on all your approach shots.
With an average playing time of only three and a half hours per round, the Challenge is perfect for those with a busy schedule.
