Big Meadow Course
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.
Glaze Meadow Course
For years, thousands of golfers have considered the Glaze Meadow course at Black Butte Ranch to be the most iconic course in Central Oregon. When the course reopened in 2012 after an extensive $3.75 million renovation by architect John Fought, golfers were treated to an experience unlike anything else in Central Oregon. Featuring slightly elevated greens, square tee boxes and deep grass-faced bunkers, the new Glaze Meadow reflects the spirit of classic golf course design in a true mountain setting.
Glaze Meadow plays 7,007 yards from the back tees, and the modernization of the design includes five sets of tees on every hole, allowing golfers of all skill levels to enjoy the game. The course features meticulously groomed bluegrass-rye fairways, with gentle hills and hollows surrounding the bent grass greens. The rolling landscape, accented by quaking Aspens, Ponderosa pines and spectacular views of the Cascade peaks, including North Sister and Mt. Washington, provides a sophisticated journey that is as engaging as it is memorable.
