We are thrilled to announce that in 2021 Pronghorn Resort once again received several highly respected awards and accolades for both golf courses, the resort, the Pronghorn Academy and the Huntington Lodge.

There’s a reason why Pronghorn Resort receives accolades year after year: Two award-winning golf courses side by side, sweeping views of the Cascade Mountains, the new 104-room Huntington Lodge, one of Bend’s top chefs, plus many incredible indoor and outdoor venues for weddings, meetings and retreats. Year after year our high desert oasis gets big raves, and we are thrilled to share the latest of them with you here.

21 Best Holes of the 21st Century

No. 15, Jack Nicklaus Signature Course

LINKS Magazine

“Little sandy/grassy ridges jutting in from the sides make this essentially straight hole seem like it twists this way and that, and many is the player that zigzags his way up the hill. It’s a stunner visually and one of the classics of the high desert.”

“… we had the fair fortune to bunk in at Pronghorn Resort for a few nights and were hard-pressed to check out, given its luxe amenities and ultra-manicured golf. Home to both a Jack Nicklaus and a Tom Fazio 18, the 640-acre compound is studded with bulbous juniper trees and replete with eye-popping views of the snow-capped Cascades.

“The Nicklaus course plays firm and fast, stretching to nearly 7,400 yards from the back tees and sloped/rated at 75.0/148—mostly due to its formidable length, but also the premium put on accurate tee shots and needle’s eye approaches.

“The Fazio Course is a more comely and dramatic canvas, with craggy lava outcroppings incorporated throughout. Ask for a quick tour of the petrified lava tube at the 187-yard, par-three 8th, which the designer claimed as an underground office after a dynamite blast revealed the ancient redoubt.”
