The eighth hole on the Tom Fazio Championship Golf Course at Pronghorn Resort is one of the most unique holes in the world. The par-three hole on our private golf course in Bend, Oregon includes a 45-foot canyon and exposed lava tube. Fazio 8 is one of the most-photographed golf holes on the property, and for obvious reason. Home to great horned owls, and many awestruck golfers, the landscape of this golf hole is magical.
The Tom Fazio Championship Golf Course at Pronghorn Resort boasts one of the most unique golf holes in the world, Fazio 8. Built on an ancient lava tube, this golf hole reflects the landscape of Central Oregon and offers golfers an experience like none other.

After receiving more than 12 inches of snow over a 24-hour period in mid-December, we wondered what Fazio 8 looked like with deep, fresh powder. So we threw on a pair of snowshoes and headed down to the legendary lava tube, following animal tracks along the way. You might have seen our Story on Instagram, here are more photos of the snow-covered lava tube.

Tracks heading down to the lava tube entrance as we approach the hole on the right. We’re pretty sure we’re not going to find those lost balls today!
At the entrance of the lava tube. If you look up to the left, you’ll see the large great horned owl nest. Eagles perch above too.
View looking outside from inside the lava tube. The air outside was 22 degrees, but inside the cave it was much warmer around 40 degrees. Lava tube formations in Central Oregon keep a consistent temperature all year long, making them a place to cool down in the summer, and warm up in the winter.
A new home being built in The Estates overlooking the Fazio 8 and the lava tube. What a view!
