Many travelers may consider what additional playing options are available to them as they travel south from Portland toward Oregon’s golfing Mecca. For those coming from the south, or perhaps just willing to drive a little farther, Eagle Point Golf Club may be an attractive side trip before heading to Bandon.

Although Robert Trent Jones II is largely known for an architectural style very different from that of the nearby links destination, his approach to construction at Eagle Point (sand veneering and supplementing the fairways with extensive drainage) allows the club to play year-round, even in the dampest of months.

Unlike Bandon, however, numerous water hazards point to this course’s ‘90s construction. This is not to suggest that Jones does not offer the careful player a range of strategic options to avoid them: Two of the course’s signature holes feature separating fairways, where a player’s boldness will determine whether they reach the green in two, three, or if they suffer for going for it in two. This includes No. 9, a very reachable par five at 522 yards, and No. 6, a much less reachable par four at 476 yards.

Anyone heading to Oregon will be drawn by the mega magnet called Bandon Dunes. No doubt, the mega-golf facility is the 800-pound gorilla and clearly merits the attention it receives.

But I urge those making such a trek and who happen to traverse near Medford to check out the layout from RTJ, Jr. Eagle Point is rich mixture of varying holes and there's enough topography to keep maters interesting.

The different tees provide a worthy challenge while still permitting playability to be front and center for those with higher handicaps. Among the most notable of holes is the long par-4 6th and the par-5 9th. The closing trio with the long par-5 16th, mid-length par-4 17th and the challenging stout par-4 18th are all richly designed.

RTJ, Jr. deserves plaudits for a routing that maximizes all the crucial elements of the site.

So much of golf is dependent upon a constant drumbeat of attention and Eagle Point clearly is engulfed by the huge shadow that Bandon Dunes casts. That's unfortunate.

Nonetheless, those visiting the SW corner of Oregon should make a visit to see firsthand. Your time will most certainly not be wasted.
