There isn’t a more fun round of golf in Central Oregon than Brasada Canyons. I don’t care who you ask or talk to. If they say anything different, they’re wrong.
Situated in the high desert canyons of Powell Butte, this golf course is unlike any other in the area. The holes are built into canyons whose natural contours shape holes that are user friendly and present deceptive challenges all at once.
The fairways at Brasada Canyons are wide. And with elevated tee shots, you’ll feel like Superman with driver in your hands.
One of the Golfer’s Authority writers has played this track many times and always bragged about the impeccable condition of the bent grass greens. He wasn’t wrong. Year-around, these surfaces are as true as anything you’ll find. Just remember that putts into the mountain are slower than they look. Conversely, putts away from the mountain can be lightning fast, even if they look uphill.
If you’re in Central Oregon and only have time for a round or two, make a date Brasada Canyons. She’s user-friendly yet challenging all at once.
Oh yeah, the breathtaking views of Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top, The Three Sisters, Mt. Washington, Mt. Jefferson, and Mt. Hood are breathtaking to say the least. Even though we hate the golf tip “keep your head down,” it might be advice well heeded at Brasada Canyons.Like some of the other courses on this list, you’ll need to be a resort guest of Brasada Ranch or that of a member. It’s also a good idea to check local stay and play packages for the best rates on both cabins and golf.
