Year-Round Fun: At Eagle Crest Resort, The Options Are Many
There’s a whole lot of golf to be played at Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond, Oregon, one of the newest facilities in the Troon family. In addition to the resort’s two championship-caliber 18-hole, par 72 courses, there’s an 18-hole executive course, and an 18-hole putting course.
Located in the high desert of Cen-tral Oregon, Eagle Crest Resort is set against the backdrop of the Cascade Mountains. The Gene Mason-de-signed Resort Course is adjacent to the resort and runs along the rim
of the Deschutes River Canyon and throughout the original Eagle Crest housing development. The 18-hole course plays to a par of 72 and measures 6,704 yards from the back tees.
The John Thronson-designed Ridge Course measures 6,927 yards as it threads its way through native juniper trees. The Ridge Course will host the Oregon Open Invitational, the state’s championship open to both amateur and professional golfers, in 2023. The course previously hosted the prestigious event in 2006.
The executive-length, par-63 Challenge Course is popular with beginners as it covers 4,160 yards. All three courses are open year around, weather permitting.
“Eagle Crest Resort is a wonderful addition to the Troon family of man-aged clubs,” said Darrell Morgan, vice president operations, Troon. “The resort’s location is breathtaking, the courses are very good and the property is spectacular. We will look to further elevate the golf experience at Eagle Crest from improved course conditions to enhanced service levels for resort guests and daily fee players.”
