When you think of a golfer’s perfect hotel, you think of two things: easy access to the course, and drool-worthy views. The Huntington Lodge at Pronghorn Resort has both, and so much more.
The best golf hotel is the Huntington Lodge at the Pronghorn Resort
The 104-room guest lodge in Bend, Oregon sits overlooking the eighteenth green of the Tom Fazio Championship Course, and is just a short walk or cart ride to the first tee of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. Both are Top 100 golf courses. Both offer their own exquisite style of play. Fazio is more visually impressive with the famous number eight hole and ancient lava tube. Nicklaus can be more challenging play, especially on the back nine. Views and access to these two top-rated courses put the Huntington Lodge in a premier spot on any golfer’s vacation bucket list. But there’s more to this Golf Digest “Best Golf Resort in The Pacific Northwest”. There’s so much more.
What Makes the Huntington Lodge the Best Golf Hotel?
First, there are all of the golf-related reasons to visit:
Begin and end your day with the best golf views in Oregon.
The views from the Huntington Lodge are some of the best in Oregon. From your west-facing terrace you will see the fairway and green of Fazio eighteen, the Fazio practice area, the Event Island, and the four peaks that are signature to Bend, Oregon: Mt. Bachelor and the Three Sisters. On a clear day you will also be able to see Mt. Washington and Mt. Jefferson. As you sit and look out from your terrace, you’ll wonder how you ever got so lucky.
Live your best buddies life with a combined suite and outdoor terrace.
The Huntington Lodge offers several incredible room combinations for groups. There are two corner penthouses, as well as rooms that can be combined via a common living room space. Outdoor spaces can also be combined, creating a larger terrace area for beers and more golf course viewing.
Ride the only Phat Golf Scooter golf resort in Central Oregon.
Phat Golf Scooters are the coolest new way to travel the golf course and we are the only resort in Central Oregon that has them. Have you ever pictured yourself riding a Harley up to your favorite tee box? No? Well, you’re about to. This ride is electric, which means it’s quiet and incredibly smooth. Easy to learn, perfect for a group, and so much fun, you might forget about your score on Nicklaus thirteen.
Experience a phenomenal driving range and practice area.
Golf requires practice, and thankfully practice can be just as much fun as the play itself. Huntington Lodge guests are invited to use the Jack Nicklaus practice area as well as the driving range. You will find the short game area to be one of the best around, and very memorable in its design among the juniper trees.
Drink one of the world’s best golf drinks.
According to Golf.com, the Prong Berry is number 3 on their list of best golf drinks from around the world. So, you have to drink at least one on any golf trip to Pronghorn Resort. The Prong Berry is served in The Coyote, the bar in the Huntington Lodge. Made with Oregon blackberries, rosemary, vodka and cranberry juice, this drink pairs well with any discussions of your Par 4’s from the day, plus tapas-style small plates from The Coyote.
Visit Pronghorn Academy, Central Oregon’s exclusive Golf Channel supported facility and Bend’s only True Spec Golf Studio.
What happens when you combine one of golf’s top-rated coaches, Jeff Ritter, with Golf Channel supported instruction and the world’s leading custom club fitting, True Spec Golf? Epic golf instruction and support under one incredible roof. There is so much happening in the Pronghorn Academy that it’s impossible to tighten up and summarize here. You’ll just have to stop in and see what it’s all about. And be ready to sell off some shares once you get a club fitting! It’s that good.
Loosen up with a golf ball massage. Seriously!
One way to up your game and strengthen your swing is to increase your flexibility. Power and precision on the tee requires limber joints and muscles. Our “Spa Ball” Massage is the perfect treatment for any golfer. A golf ball in its own special caddy provides a therapeutic, trigger point massage that increases flexibility. Give it a try in The Spa!
All of these things—just steps from your room at the Huntington Lodge!
Second, there are all of the vacation-related reasons to visit the best golf resort in Oregon
Roll through the resort on an electric scooter, cruiser bike, mountain bike or fat bike.
After you finish your 18 and return your Phat Golf Scooter, head to The Trailhead to check out all of the other wheel rentals. We have a similar electric scooter model that’s made for paved paths, as well as a wide array of cruisers, fat bikes and mountain bikes. Pronghorn is surrounded by BLM land so grab a mountain bike and start exploring!
Soak up the sun in a poolside cabana.
Enjoy a peaceful day soaking up rays at the Huntington Lodge pool. This heated pool is open year round and offered to adults only. Stylish cabanas are located at the north side of the pool and offer views of The Coyote’s patio, firepit and ghost tree. Lounge the day away and return in the evening for a dip in the hot tub.
Snack on tapas and cocktails at The Coyote’s fire pit.
The Coyote firepit is the best place to unpack your day with friends. Choose from expertly crafted cocktails, local Bend beers and wine on tap! This is the place where you’ll rethink your putts, overthink your scores, and laugh about the shenanigans that were had on the course. Some of your best golf moments are had right here.
Get hoppy with a personalized Bend beer growler.
Let us know if there are particular Bend breweries you’d like to try during your stay at the Huntington Lodge. While we have an assortment of selections on tap and in the bottle at all of our dining outlets, we’ll be happy to fill a growler or two for your room refrigerator. Just let us know ahead of time and we’ll be sure to have it chilled and ready for your arrival.
Play some cornhole, frisbee, ladder golf or footgolf.
Who knew there’d be more to play than golf? Let loose and have fun with some good old-fashioned lawn games. On select dates in the summer, we also offer footgolf on the driving range!
