Arrive on a Sunday evening and meet up on the patio of your 4-bedroom villa at Pronghorn Resort. Mix a few bourbon cocktails, throw some steaks on the grill, then eat, laugh, and drink a few pints of your favorite Bend beers.

Hit some sunset balls on the driving range after dinner and then return to your villa for a game of poker and cigars.
You’ll probably wake up with the sun Monday morning because you’re so excited for your tee time. Spend an hour on the driving range hitting balls after breakfast at the Trailhead Grill. Then head to the golf shop to check in for your tee time and purchase a few souvenirs to remember your trip. (If you forget this important step, don’t worry. You can buy Pronghorn Resort gear in our online store.) Grab your box lunch from the Grill on the Green and head to the first tee on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. After an epic round with your buddies, you’ll either want to do it all over again — and you can with the unlimited golf available in our current Special Group Golf Offer — or you’ll need some time to relax at the pool. Laughing and reviewing your game with your best buddies is what this trip is all about! We suggest pairing a Boneyard Beer IPA poolside.

Ride the Cycle Pub around downtown and enjoy some of Bend’s best craft beers.
The Cycle Pub is one of the most entertaining ways to travel through downtown Bend, Oregon. Gather your group and hop on the pedal-powered mobile pub and get ready for lots of laughs and great craft beer. Your driver (or bike pilot) will take you along the Bend Ale Trail to some of the best breweries in town. At each stop you are welcome to hop out, visit the brewery for a few minutes, and fill up a growler with one more incredible Bend beer. Then hop back on, fill your cup and enjoy the views around town.

Bungee jump over the Crooked River.
If you’re going to bungee jump, it’s best that you do it with a group of your best friends. Located at the high bridge in the beautiful PS Ogden State Park, Central Oregon Bungee Adventures bungee site offers stunning views of the Crooked River Gorge and Cascade Mountains. In close proximity to Smith Rock State Park, you could make a day of bungee jumping, rock climbing, and hiking before heading back to your villa at Pronghorn Resort for dinner and drinks.
