Pronghorn Resort in Bend has been a premier golf community since it opened more than 10 years ago. Set on a massive, 700 acre forest of 1,000-year-old juniper trees and with sweeping views of the majestic Cascades to the West, Pronghorn is a true High Desert golf escape and family vacation destination.

In fact, it’s one of the 25 Best Golf Communities in the U.S. according to Golf Magazine. The list includes some clubs with heavy hitters as members, including Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Wayne Gretzky and Rory Mcilroy. Pronghorn doesn’t boast about celebrity members (it has a few,) it just boasts about an amazing golf, residential and vacation experience.

The club was the first to feature Jack Nicklaus and Tom Fazio-designed courses side by side. Both courses have received high praise from the beginning for their unique and playable designs. The Nicklaus Course is open to the public and ranked No. 31 in Golf Digest’s Top 100 Public Courses in the U.S.  The Fazio Course, which includes a Par 3 with a breathtaking exposed lava tube, was named No. 12 on Golfweek’s list of Best Residential Courses in 2015.

Resort amenities include multiple restaurants, a world-class clubhouse, the Troon Golf Academy, outdoor heated pools with water slide and a hot tub. The resort will also build you and your family customized adventures, taking advantage of all the hiking, cycling, fishing, rafting, and other outdoor activities Central Oregon is known for. The resort is also just minutes from the region’s cultural interests, and culinary and craft beer experiences.

The resort’s lodging right now includes 2, 3 & 4 BR vacation rental homes that feature gourmet kitchen appliances, home theater systems, private patios with fire pits and BBQs and more. And in 2017 the resort plans to open a 105-room luxury lodge located in the heart of the resort.
