The sport of golfing is a big draw in the state of Oregon. This past summer an Oregon Golf Tournament teed off the annual “Best of Oregon Food & Wine Festival. This summer gala is meant to highlight the finest chefs and vineyards and the new inclusion of a golf tournament to jumpstart the activities added extra spice to this always popular event.
Nearly any part of this state has its own special features to offer dedicated golfers. Central Oregon is a magnet for golfers at all skill levels and the expansive greens, undulating hills and surrounding mountains provide the icing on the cake. One of the premier Oregon courses is found at Broken Top Club.
The layout is challenging but the crisp breezes; tall, swaying trees and mountaintop beauty brings the surrounding scenery to front and center stage. You will have to bring your “A” game into play with some serious drives and sharp putts if you hope to tame the golf course at Broken Top.
Of course there are a number of other clubs, courses and golf tournaments in Oregon for your consideration. In the heart of Rogue Valley is where you will find one of the newest golf courses, the Centennial. A very impressive layout of more than 7,300 yards invites golfers to come and test their skills. For more than a century the site of this new course had been a pear orchard and now it has been transformed into a unique golf challenge created by former PGA great John Fought.
People come to this state to enjoy a range of activities since is one of the few places where there really are 4 seasons in the year. Golfers can combine their trip with a number of other outdoor sporting adventures including mountain climbing, hiking, skiing, sailing, kayaking or swimming. The list of possibilities is almost endless when you come to Oregon.
