Pacific Northwest Golf Association Partners with Three Premier Resorts
The Pacific Northwest Golf Association is proud to announce a new partnership with Northview Oregon Resorts (NVOR), the owner and operator of Brasada Ranch and Eagle Crest Resort in Central Oregon and Running Y Ranch in Southern Oregon. As a part of the partnership, NVOR will host three future PNGA championships and PNGA Members will receive year-round preferred rates at NVOR’s three destination golf resorts.
Brasada Canyons at Brasada Ranch, designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy, will host the PNGA Men’s Master-40 in May 2013 and the PNGA Men’s Senior and Super Senior Amateur in June 2014. The Arnold Palmer Signature Course at Running Y Ranch will host the PNGA Mid-Amateur in September 2014.
The PNGA Preferred Member rates at Eagle Crest Resort and Running Y Ranch include unlimited golf and a night’s stay in the fully-renovated Lodges for just $139 per player (rate based on double occupancy guestroom; vacation rental homes are also available). Members are invited to play on their day of arrival and departure at the three courses at Eagle Crest Resort and the Arnold Palmer Signature Course at Running Y Ranch. The PNGA Preferred Member rates drop to $109 just after Labor Day.
At Brasada Ranch, PNGA Preferred Member rates include two rounds of golf or two spa treatments per guest, starting at $245 per guest in three-bedroom Sage Canyon Cabins. Members may also choose to stay in two-bedroom cabins and the luxurious Ranch House Suites.
When calling the resorts to make reservations, be sure to mention package code “PNGA” to receive the PNGA Preferred Member rates.
“The PNGA is thrilled to be partnering with Northview Oregon Resorts,” said PNGA executive director Troy Andrew. “The PNGA membership packages they have put together will be an attractive benefit for our membership throughout the Pacific Northwest. We are especially excited to administer three of our championships at their top-rated golf courses.”
Rich Taylor, Director of Golf for NVOR, said, “Our golf resorts have long been affiliated with the PNGA and we are honored to further the relationship with the signing of three PNGA championships. We’re very confident the players are going to enjoy the championship atmosphere at the Peter Jacobsen / Jim Hardy design at Brasada Ranch, long considered one of the most beautiful courses in Bend, and the Arnold Palmer Signature Course at Running Y Ranch, most recently rated No. 9 in Oregon by Golfweek. We welcome all PNGA members who would like to get out and experience these courses, as well as our three courses at Eagle Crest Resort.”
About the Resorts
Central Oregon has over 300 days of sunshine a year and at Brasada Ranch the weather is even dryer and warmer given its location 16 miles to the east of Bend. In winter, guests can ski at Mt. Bachelor in the morning and play 18 in the afternoon, as the course is open year-round.Brasada Canyons, the course at Brasada Ranch (www.brasada.com), offers amazing golf, top-notch service, and a front row seat to the natural wonder of Central Oregon. Designed by native Oregonian Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy, the course just outside Bend is undeniably one of Central Oregon’s most beautiful and enjoyable. As the name suggests, 18 distinctive and challenging holes wind through, across and along the canyons of Brasada Ranch, and features dramatic, unmatched views of snowcapped Cascade Mountains from nearly every hole.
Brasada Ranch is Central Oregon’s only Preferred Hotel & Resort, featuring luxurious Ranch House Suites and Sage Canyon Cabins for the most discriminating guests, a 17,000 square foot Athletic Center with indoor and outdoor pools, young adults center, world-class Equestrian Center, five-star dining experiences, and 1,800 acres of natural beauty. Brasada Canyons is also a member of Preferred Golf, a collection of 100 of the world’s finest golf courses, including Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, The Broadmoor, and Gleneagles.
The Arnold Palmer Signature Course at Running Y Ranch is consistently rated one of the country’s best. Golf Digest ranks it among the Top 100 Public Courses in the U.S., Top 15 Courses in Oregon and Top 5 Courses for Women in the U.S., while Golfweek ranks it among the Top 10 in Oregon.Running Y Ranch (www.runningy.com), Southern Oregon’s only full-service destination resort, is home to the Arnold Palmer Signature Course, Arnold’s only course in Oregon. Situated in the heart of the breathtaking Cascade Mountain range, just across the California boarder on the shores of Klamath Lake, the resort’s exceptionally mild climate and 300 days of sunshine a year add up to a four-season recreational paradise, featuring world-class fly fishing, birding, hunting, and its nationally acclaimed golf course.
Running Y Ranch features a fully renovated, 82-room Lodge and new restaurant, The Ruddy Duck, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, well-maintained vacation homes, sport center, indoor pool, relaxing day spa, miles of hiking and biking trails, ice skating area, conference facilities, and the exceptional four season recreation of Southern Oregon.
When it comes to golf, challenge, variety and value are the top priorities at Eagle Crest Resort. With two championship golf courses, the par-63 Challenge Course, and a popular 18-hole putting course, links lovers are never far from their favorite pastime. Four sets of tees on each course allow the more experienced golfers plenty of challenge, and the less experienced equally enjoyable rounds. And thanks to the lower elevation, the Ridge and Challenge courses remain open all winter long.Surrounded by majestic, snowcapped Cascade Mountains, Eagle Crest Resort (www.eagle-crest.com) is located along the Deschutes River, just west of Redmond and north of Bend. Named a Golf Digest Best Place to Play in 2008 and 2009, guests return year-after-year for the resort’s 54 holes of golf (three courses). They also return for the fully renovated Lodge at Eagle Crest, well-maintained vacation homes, three sport centers, indoor and outdoor pools, multiple tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, miles of hiking and biking trails, spa, and countless recreational pursuits throughout Central Oregon.
