Where can we play golf and go wine tasting?

In the state of Oregon, the Willamette Valley is most prevalent with wines (as you probably already know) but too has some pockets of good golf to enjoy.

If you focus on southern Willamette Valley area, Eugene has its fair share of wineries and a few public access courses worth checking out; my two favorites are:

  • Emerald Valley Golf is the home for the Oregon Ducks golf team, and depending on the time of year, it can be in great shape to play — plus it’s not a hard course at all.
  • River Ridge is a family-owned course with 18 holes and a par 3 nine-hole track too. This place is really special in that it reflect the old days of golf course ownership. I think you’ll like its home-spun feel

If you wine taste down by the Medford area, there are several great golf courses to try. For sure play Centennial Golf Course — it has a John Fought design and is really pretty right in the heart of Medford.

If you end up staying in Portland and driving to the wineries near the city, then Pumpkin Ridge and The Reserve are two very find golf facilities, both with two 18-hole courses.
