Black Butte Ranch

Just 8 miles northwest of Sisters, Oregon, Black Butte Ranch is set at the gateway to Central Oregon. For more than 50 years, Black Butte Ranch has been among the premier resort communities in the region. Golf is a big reason why. 

With 36 holes of championship golf, and the beautifully designed Little Meadow putting course, Black Butte has long been beloved by golfers of every stripe. In fact, the opening of Big Meadow in 1970 helped put Central Oregon on the world’s golf destination map.

Distinctly different in character and feel, the Robert Muir Graves-designed Big Meadow and John Fought-redesigned Glaze Meadow offer unique interpretations of mountain golf. Both showcase the inherent beauty of Central Oregon and the Cascade Range as they wend through towering ponderosa pines and aspen groves.

Black Butte Ranch’s newest golf addition, the Little Meadow putting course, offers an altogether different experience. An experience that has quickly become a favorite for families and friends searching for the perfect sun-drenched Central Oregon activity for everyone to enjoy. No golf experience is necessary.

Aspen Lakes Golf Course

Set just east of Sisters, Oregon, family-owned Aspen Lakes is one of the more beautiful settings for a public golf course that one can experience. Opening in 1996, architect William Overdorf designed Aspen Lakes in a style that is not only local but environmentally friendly. Its signature red bunkers were made from cinder that originated on the golf course property. The deep red sand creates a visual splendor as it contrasts with the emerald green grass, blue Central Oregon skies, and white, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Range. The views are spectacular, but it’s not just beautiful. At more than 7,300 yards, Aspen Lakes will challenge golfers of every skill level. 

Aspen Lakes was named one of the Top 10 Hidden Gems in the U.S. by the Golf Channel’s Matt Ginella, and has been described by Golf Digest as one of the best affordable golf courses in the country. Play it once, and we think you’ll agree.
