Oregon

The famous quote: “Go West, Young Man!” dates back to the 1850s and promoted the expansion westward at an exciting time in US history. Today “Go West” is used by Oregon Tourism to tempt would-be adventurers to the Beaver State in the Pacific Northwest.

Oregon is a magnet that drags golfers from all over the world to the seaside resort of Bandon Dunes where there are four world-class golf courses. As for the rest of Oregon, it’s pretty much unknown as a golfing destination. The Beaver State could do itself a favour by promoting its non-Bandon based golf courses a little more effectively because there are some excellent courses to be savoured within this magnificent vacation State.

Apart from the excellent private golf courses at Eugene and Pronghorn, there’s Crosswater at Sunriver, Running Y Ranch and Pumpkin Ridge, all of which are worth singling out from Oregon’s directory of more than 200 golf courses.
