What is the best time of the year to golf?
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.

Other questions about Central Oregon
- My husband and I are planning a trip to Bend in August. We have a 14 month-old and would like to hike somewhere that isn’t too difficult and has some safe swimming holes. Any suggestions?
- I’m looking for family friendly bike rides (paved) for my family when I go to Central Oregon later this month. I have an 8 & 10 year old, so nothing too strenuous for the little ones. A reward (read: ice cream & beer) nearby–all the better!
- We are planning a trip to Oregon. We will spend a week on the coast, I believe near Newport. Then we plan to move inland. Which location would be best – Welches or Bend?
