Eugene Country Club dates back to 1899 and is the second oldest club in the state of Oregon. The course is set among towering Douglas Firs where its natural setting and strategic challenge has elevated the club’s reputation as one of the best courses on the Pacific Coast.

Back in 1923, Chandler Egan, one of the best US golfer’s of the time, laid out a new course at Eugene Country Club. In the late 1960s, Robert Trent Jones was engaged to toughen up the layout by remodelling the greens, bunkers and enlarging the greens. The result is a more challenging and enjoyable course for the modern day golfer.

Trent Jones last visited Eugene in the late 80s and commented on the “cathedral-like” setting of a number of holes, especially the opener which is framed by Cedar and fir trees. Water comes into play at a number of holes in the middle section of the round, but the predominant feature of Eugene is the arboretum-like setting which is simply magnificent especially in the autumn.

First, I am a member of the club.Second, Trent Jones did his work on the course in the late 1960s, not the late 1980s. Jones was at the peak of his career at the time. In a unique redesign, he reversed the routing (not the nines); thus, the 18th green became the 1st tee, etc. Just two par threes do not follow, in reverse, the Egan routing.Eugene CC has held USGA Championship events in the past and will hold the2008 Womens Am.Major airlines serve Eugene, and it is almost two hours closer to Bandon, Oregon, than Portland. If you can gain privileges to this private club, it is well worth a stop on a trip to Bandon.

Thanks for putting us straight regarding the date when RTJ did his work on the course. We've now amended our feature.
