The Running Y Ranch should be a resort destination for out of town visitors and a place where local residents can call home

With its rich and diverse history dating back to 1866, the Running Y Ranch has since developed into one of Oregon’s finest destination resorts. Sitting on over 3,600 acres of pristine natural terrain the sale marks the first Northwest venture for CLV Properties and includes; a full service recently renovated destination resort, a 7,500 square foot conference center, an 18-hole Arnold Palmer signature golf course and other land for future development.

Lynch, who is the Managing Partner of CLV Properties LLC, has engaged Portland, Oregon based hospitality company, CoHo.Services, to provide management and operations services for the Running Y Ranch.

When asked what his goals were for the property Mr. Lynch stated, “Southern Oregon has always captured my heart, and the Running Y Ranch is an amazing and special place. My goal is to continue to support the community by improving the resort and golf course. The Running Y Ranch should be a resort destination for out of town visitors and a place where local residents can call home.”
