Pronghorn Club (Nicklaus course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2004

Pronghorn Club (Nicklaus course): A 20-minute drive from Bend in Oregon, and quietly tucked away in an expansive area of high desert, the Pronghorn Club plays host to two fabulous championship golf courses. The publicly accessible Nicklaus course, and the private Fazio course are both among the top-rated and finest championship layouts in Oregon.

Pronghorn's Nicklaus layout is an excellent desert-style course that contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Ancient lava rock ridges and outcroppings intertwine with natural high desert landscaping. The Cascade Mountains provide a wonderful backdrop to several holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
