Discover Redmond’s Best Golf Courses

Redmond, Oregon, is a vibrant community with stunning Central Oregon views and a lively downtown, making it a fun stop on the Central Oregon Golf Trail. About a third of the population of Bend, Redmond moves at its own pace. But the burgeoning downtown of “The Hub City” has become a hub for a farm-to-table culinary scene, as well as exceptional craft beer, cider, and wine. The lifestyle in Redmond can be great for golfers, too, who might find just a little more space between tee times. And Redmond’s milder weather means courses here stay open all winter long. 

Here’s a look at some of the best golf in Redmond:

Eagle Crest Golf Courses

Set just west of Redmond, Eagle Crest Resort is among the most family-friendly golf resorts in Central Oregon. Eagle Crest golf courses include four unique golf experiences, including 36 holes of championship golf, the 18-hole, par-63 Challenge Course, and an 18-hole putting course that will have everyone in the family smiling. Each course has a unique character, but one thing remains consistent: Stunning views of the High Desert landscape and the nearby Cascade Range.

Both championship golf courses will challenge players of all skill levels. A frequent host of Oregon Golf Association and Northwest Golf Association championships, The Ridge Course winds through an old-growth juniper forest and is perched on a hillside. Described as a “driver’s dream,” golfers have the freedom to be aggressive while staying in play. The Resort Course’s distinct nines offer a varied experience. The front nine is more open and forgiving, while the tighter back nine requires accuracy. The popular Challenge Course features nine par 3s and nine par 4s, offering a fun, fast-paced experience meant to test the limits of a golfer’s short game. 

The courses at Eagle Crest Resort are open to members and resort guests for play. The public is welcome.

Juniper Golf Course

Considered one of Oregon’s finest municipal golf courses, Juniper Golf Course is a stunner that weaves through the juniper trees and sagebrush of the High Desert. The views of the Cascade Range can be magnificent. Juniper is also a wonderful test of golf, capable of hosting USGA qualifiers, Oregon Golf Association championships, and more. The 18-hole, par-72 course stretches to nearly 7,200 yards, and the course is typically in fantastic condition. Golf Digest touted the Juniper as one of the best new public golf courses in the country after its opening in 2005, and today Juniper remains one of the best values in Central Oregon and beyond.

The Greens at Redmond

The Greens at Redmond is an 18-hole premium mid-iron golf course (some may call it an executive course) with a user-friendly practice facility that includes an indoor warmup area, putting green, and bunker. Designed by Robert Muir Graves, the Greens at Redmond offers a fun layout shaped by picturesque volcanic-stone outcroppings and juniper trees, with lakes, canals, fountains, and white sand bunkers throughout. The course will sharpen your iron game. And the mountain views are gorgeous. The Greens at Redmond, which is open year-round, is also one of the most affordable golf experiences in Central Oregon.
