Owner description: Where the "Golden Age of Golf" is Honored... When you play on Glaze Meadow expect to feel like you stepped back in time to the "Golden Age of Golf" when exceptional course design and architecture ushered in a new era. With slightly elevated greens, square tee boxes and deep grass-faced bunkers, the course truly transports you back in time. The newly designed Oregon golf greens are not only meant to play fast and true with significant slope, but please golfers' senses with beautifully integrated pristine landscape. Big Meadow Golf Course stretching more than 7,000 yards, our Big Meadow Course is one of Central Oregon golfers' favorites, garnering a four-star rating from Golf Digest and being recognized as a Top 75 Golf Resort in the US. You won't want to miss the perfect Oregon golf photo opportunity at the 14th hole, which gives a dramatic view of Three Fingered Jack, a jagged volcanic peak.

I have golfed both courses and enjoy both. After the complete redesign of Glaze Meadow a couple of years ago it is much improved. The greens are still hard - tough to land a ball on the green and stick it - but that will improve each year. Wonderful staff on each course and so many amazing views.

On a recent vacation to Oregon we stayed at a Golf Course Condo at BBR. Played the Big Meadow course which is located close to the entrance and BBR Lodge. Gorgeous; if you just wanted to admire the exceptional scenery it would be worth the price. I am an average golfer (18.5 index) and found the course challenging, but playable.... More

There are residences, condos and cottages for rent, and it's a popular destination for family gatherings, destination weddings, and the like. The resort offers horseback rides, extensive bike trails, and wonderful banquet and meeting facilities. Staff is friendly, helpful, and eager to please. Everyone I encountered went the extra mile to provide assistance, maps, parking/unloading information... with smiles and patience.

Not sure why Trip Advisor has this as an attraction and not also as lodging. We rented a lodge condo to attend a destination wedding. This is a very large complex of condos, cottages, single homes, golf courses and other recreations facilities. The condo was very nice with a porch that had a spectacular view of the snow covered Three... More

Black Butte is a little too modern of a development for my liking. We came here for a look see and met our rafting bus there.

The course has been extensively redone recently, by a major course designer. I played it many, many times years ago (once a week) and it was getting old and really outdated. The "new" course has been heavily updated and many holes, which were getting unplayable, are now opened up. They still have inserted bunkers in key areas to make you... More

We had the pleasure to play Black Butte Ranch meadows course. From the beginning everything was just great. e were greeted at 7AM by a very lively young lady in the pro shop. We chose to walk the course and the only negative the whole morning was the first tee shot because the sun was right in our face. The... More
