Black Butte Ranch is a golf and recreational resort located in Central Oregon near Bend.
The resort includes two golf courses- the first of which was Big Meadow, designed by Robert Muir Graves in 1970, and renovated by Damian Pascuzzo in 2008.
The second course is Glaze Meadow, which was originally designed by John Fought and opened in 1978. Fought remodelled the course in 2010-11.
The course moves though a forest of Ponderosa Pines and groves of Aspen with occasional glimpses of snow topped mountains as a back drop.
It a pretty place to play and a good test of golf.
The front nine is relatively flat, but the back nine starts to move into more undulating territory creating more interest.
Hole 12 and 13 take you up, and fourteen- the signature hole brings you back down..
Notable holes include:
- the par 3 4th
- the diagonally bunkered par 4 ninth
- the uphill par 4 twelfth
- the short par 4 fourteenth hole with mountain views off the tee
- the short par 4 fifteenth
