Wow, beautiful course! Saw some dear and lots of birds surrounding the course. We played the first nine holes early afternoon midweek. The two of us often felt like the only ones on the course due to only a few players. No problems with bugs this time of year. Loved how well manicured and the overall design. Collared shirts are...

Unfortunately the course was undergoing greens mtce and I was allowed to play on the front nine only. Nice course with some variety but not stunning. Well maintained.

Set amongst a large pine forest is one of the best maintained and challenging tracts in Oregon. The greens were smooth and very fast, at least 11 on the Stimp. The fairways were mowed nice and smooth so that a good drive got that extra roll. Add to the fact that you are playing at over 4000 feet elevation and... More

If you like mountain courses you will love the Running Y. The views are many and the course is in excellent shape. It will test your game but you will be able to score well if you hit it down the middle. No forgiveness when you miss the fare way. Maybe the best course in the Klamath Basin and Rouge... More

But make sure you bring your bug spray. Lots of standing water. The hotel staff tried to downplay it, but it was a pretty significant problem. We got eaten alive. My boyfriend played another 18 with Deep Woods Off and had no issues.

Wonderful golf course! Polite and accommodating staff. A good mix of lowland and drastic elevation (Hole 9). Course was meticulously maintained. Fast greens... roll true. Newer practice range balls. SUGGESTIONS. More definitive yardages and targets on practice range will help guests calibrate for the altitude. Possible upgrade to GPS on golf carts. Great experience!

This is one of the nicer WM units we have stayed in. We have a single bedroom unit, second floor with balcony facing the golf course. The unit is comfortably furnished and over all we are very happy with the unit. We are here in midge season, but they are not really a problem (except for the thousands glued to... More

Good golf course but you need to bring your A game. When playing you need to be aware that you are playing at altitude. Your ball can really fly.

I was impressed with this fun but very challenging course designed by Arnold Palmer. The grounds were well maintained even amidst a heat wave and dry spell. The views, especially towards the ranching country and out to the mountains, were wonderful. And as a bonus, you're bound to run into wildlife -- I found myself golfing alongside beavers, ducks, hawks... More
