There are two really great public play courses I would recommend you check out. One is Eagle Point Golf Course. This is a Robert Trent Jones design and one of his last pieces of work done in his storied career. It is not expensive and good pace of play. They are going through bankruptcy but that in no way is effecting the conditions or quality of play at the course. The other course is Centennial Golf Club. This is a John Fought design – very wide open and much like a links styled course in the middle of Medford. They have a great restaurant attached to the pro shop and the head pro there, Vince Domenzian, will take great care of you.

All four places I have recommended do provide overnight stay accommodations including all the amenities and restaurants. You really can’t loose if you choose to stay at anyone of these properties so depending on how much golf you want to play, you’re in a good spot. Finally, I would invite you to check out the Central Oregon Golf Trail and Visit Central Oregon for more information on courses in the area.

As far as best timing for golf in Oregon, the summer through early fall is generally reliable. But often the state of Oregon and the Portland area gets a bad wrap about being raining because that is usually the thought associated with the area. That is just not the case. There are many sun filled days through out the year. I particularly love the golf experience in the early fall. The trees with their colors and the smell of nature and its beauty wraps around your mind as you track around the course. Really a fantastic experience.
One of the most reliable areas to travel for golf with assurance of super weather is Central and Southern Oregon. Central Oregon has over 30 some courses with a wide variety of designs and price points for greens fees. And, it is filled with sunny days. Southern Oregon too has a super collection of courses and more reliable weather in and around the Medford area.

Just outside of downtown Portland are several high quality courses that are fully equipped to greet the “spontaneous golfer” with rental clubs and needed gear. Pumpkin Ridge and The Reserve are west of the city and both clubs have hosted several PGA and USGA Professional tournaments. Langdon Farms, which is just south of Portland proper too provides a great golf experience and solid test of play. All three courses are open to he public and will help you take advance of a free afternoon for golf.
