Despite the name, Big Meadow Golf Course at Black Butte Ranch winds its way through a towering ponderosa pine forest. World renowned designer Robert Muir Graves created a masterpiece at Big Meadow. This classic 6,850-yard, par-72 layout tests golfers with dozens of fairway bunkers and immaculate greens. Offering a stunning view of the jagged peak on Three Fingered Jack, the signature 14th hole is one of the most spectacular golf holes anywhere.
The stunning Big Meadow mountain golf course is one of Oregon golfers’ favorites, garnering numerous awards over its 30 plus years, including the 2013 honor by GolfWeek Magazine as one of the “Best Courses You can Play” in Oregon. This straightforward Robert Muir Graves design takes golfers through a scenic journey of the Oregon Cascades. Recently updated in 2007, the course stretches over 7,000 yards from the championship tees and features expansive fairways, sweeping cape and bay bunkers and elevated green complexes to challenge golfers of all skill levels.
Every component of the course is integrated into the spectacular mountain setting of Black Butte Ranch with towering Ponderosa pines and shimmering stands of Aspen trees. The fourteenth hole presents one of the Northwest’s fi nest golf course photography opportunities, providing golfers with a dramatic view of Three Fingered Jack, a jagged volcanic peak rising above the Central Oregon landscape. Golfers and non-golfers alike will enjoy Robert’s Pub inside the Big Meadow Clubhouse, providing a casual dining experience and some of the best views in Central Oregon.
