With more than 200 acclaimed public golf courses, Oregon ranks high on golfers’ bucket lists. Picking a tee time is the easy part. Choosing one of Oregon’s award-winning courses is the real challenge.
Tee off from on an oceanfront sand dune. Play alongside the professionals. Surf the turf on a GolfBoard. Get to the course before the championships. Golf in Oregon is a completely unique experience – and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
Besides golf, Oregon offers a huge array of sights and activities to visitors, including world-class pinot noir and pinot gris wines from its 702 wineries, more than 350 miles of coast with all beaches open to the public, the highest number of scenic byways and bikeways of any state in the USA, year-round skiing on Mt Hood, the crystal-clear blue waters of Crater Lake National Park, tax-free shopping and a farm to table culinary scene. Furthermore, quirky and sophisticated Portland, boasting 84 of the state’s 300-plus microbreweries, and home to Nike, has earned the nickname “Munich on the Willamette”. There are no less than 30 microbreweries in Bend itself for NAC delegates to enjoy.
Central Oregon is home to the cities of Bend, Redmond, Sisters, La Pine, Prineville, and Madras and the resort community of Sunriver, host of NAC 2018.
In Central Oregon you will find some of the finest outdoor adventure with places for paddling, hiking, cycling, golfing and dining al fresco in the summer.
