It’s big country around Pendleton, and you’ll experience that sense of open spaces at Wildhorse Golf Course, part of Wildhorse Resort & Casino. This inland links-style layout is nestled against the western foothills of the Blue Mountains and is one of Oregon’s 7 Golf Gems. It plays over 7,128 yards that feature smooth, fast bent grass greens, manicured tees and lush fairways. The distance is even more apparent when the wind is up … which is often! The course rolls up and down and around several lakes, which attract abundant bird life. Looking west across the seemingly endless agricultural fields, Wildhorse bumps up against a vast sea of wheat.
If you visit Wildhorse July 18-19, you’ll have the opportunity to see how those trees affect strategy by playing in Eastern Oregon’s premier amateur event, the Wildhorse Amateur Golf Championship. The 36-hole stroke-play tournament is open to all golfers with a current USGA handicap.
Enter to win the ultimate Oregon golf adventure, including a three-night stay and three rounds of golf at two of these 7 Gems and a group lesson with a GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher.
