This 7,381-yard, par-72, 18-hole course is intertwined with ancient lava rock ridges and outcroppings at 3,200 feet above sea level, boasting magnificent views of nine snow-capped mountain peaks. Designed to play like a genuine desert course and with the truest putting surfaces, the Nicklaus course plays firm and fast. Nicklaus’ attention to detail combines strategy with playability, risk versus reward to accommodate golfers of every skill level. Celebrating the natural landscape and displaying beautiful transitions and clean lines, as well as environmentally friendly grasses (requiring less water), underground trash receptacles and a state-of-the-art drainage system, the Nicklaus course provides a minimalist experience with an emphasis on the golf game itself.

Home to the first Fazio course in Oregon, Pronghorn provides Fazio with the ideal palette to integrate his renowned talent for creating a challenging course while celebrating the inherent aesthetics of the region. Using stunning water features and capitalizing on the natural lava rock outcroppings, Fazio’s 7,462-yard, par-72, 18-hole private course will create a visual “wow factor”, providing a pre-eminent golf experience to players at every level. The Pronghorn Fazio course is home to the most unique hole in the world—a par three, eighth hole that includes a 45-foot canyon and exposed lava tube.

TOUR Academy
Pronghorn’s balanced approach includes top notch golf instructors and an award-winning golf course set against the luxury lifestyle that has made Pronghorn famous — world-class amenities, fine dining, adventure outings and much more. While attending the TOUR Academy, enjoy activities at Pronghorn’s facilities, including The Trailhead, with swimming and tennis, relax and rejuvenate at the Spa & Wellness Center and complete the day with an unforgettable dining experience at the Clubhouse. End the day around one of the many indoor and outdoor stone fireplaces to relax and recharge for the day ahead. A variety of off-course adventures are available — from guided fly fishing, to private scotch tasting dinners. With Central Oregon as our backyard, we have access to one of the nation’s premier outdoor playgrounds. World class skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, fly-fishing, rock climbing, and white water rafting, to name a few, are all only minutes away.
