Pronghorn Resort is a golf lover’s haven in the middle of Oregon’s high desert country, an area renowned for outdoor adventure, as it boasts more than 300 days of sunshine a year. The polished hardwood accommodations have a rustic ambience and views of one of the most beautiful greens in the world: the 18th hole of the Jack Nicklaus signature course. One- and three-bedroom units are fully furnished with original artwork, spa-style baths and full kitchens that the concierge can stock with groceries ahead of check-in. Outside, private patios feature stone firepits and barbecues for cool evenings. Nationally recognized as one of the finest golf developments in the country, Pronghorn has a private Tom Fazio course side by side with the Jack Nicklaus course. What really sets the golf facilities apart, however, is the Tour Academy at Pronghorn. Run by a staff of golf experts, the futuristic facility uses state-of-the-art teaching technologies including V1 video analysis and a Dynamic Balance System. For non-golfers, Pronghorn is a destination for outdoor activities. Situated on two acres, the Trailhead activity center has two seasonal pools, hot tubs, basketball and tennis courts, and a playground. After a full day of action, dine on regional fare at the upscale Chanterelle restaurant.
In the Area
While there’s plenty to do on-site, it’s worth the 30-minute trip into Bend. The city’s Old Mill district offers some rich history along with amazing mountain views and river vistas. It’s also a terrific place for name brand shopping, drinking, dining and watching a movie or a live performance. When it comes to culture, the High Desert Museum has a surprisingly fascinating collection of creatures and heritage. Not only can visitors enjoy historical reenactments, they can get up close to foxes, reptiles, bald eagles, owls and a prickly porcupine family. And if you haven’t had your fill of activity, the 252-mile Deschutes River is renowned for rafting and kayaking, with hair-raising rapids and rugged scenery. Hikers may want to climb the craggy spires of Smith Rock or trek along the world’s largest obsidian flow, at Newberry Volcanic Monument.
How to Get There
Overall we were very happy with our stay at the resort. The staff was wonderful and took care of issues quickly and calmly. Housekeeping forgot to clean unit one day so I could not give a overall excellent rating.
Had a blast this weekend with a girlfriend at newly built Huntington Lodge at Pronghorn. I wish it was a bit warmer to be able to enjoy more of the outdoor activities, but I look forward to returning to the quiet property.
Great family trip! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Multiple pools for kids and adults to enjoy their time. The bikes paths are ideal for a a leisurely ride. There’s a near by park that is wonderful for kids to play and a basketball hoop. Overall highly recommend!!!
My room was very nicely designed, very clean, and generously spacious. The patio area was a nice touch, too! Just make sure your thermostat isn't "locked", else you may find yourself wishing it were not, in the middle of the night.
We spend our Anniversary weekend. We were treated great from the time we arrived. The food at the Trailhead Restaurant was excellent. The resort is close to multiple outdoor recreation opportunities.
It was a great weekend.
