Oregon golf resort vacations for kids

Oregon is a wonderful state in which to golf with your kids. The climate is moderate, the scenery is breathtaking, and while the prices are climbing, the crowds are still low. Families can golf at the following Oregon golf resort properties in a leisurely manner, without worrying about slowing down any other guest’s game. Plus, each golf resort below is a full-scale family vacation property, with swimming, hiking, mountain biking, playgrounds, and kid-friendly dining to keep everyone entertained while not on the links.

Brasada Ranch, Powell Butte, OR: We love the remote setting of Brasada, where families stay in luxury cottages along the fairways (try to spot the wild rabbits who come out at night and at early morning to eat the tender grass!). Brasada Canyons is a beautiful course under blue skies during 300+ days of the year. Plus, kid-friendly tee-off areas make the game more fun for little ones. Enjoy a complimentary golf cart and use of a large practice facility. When you’re not golfing, take a horseback ride or swim at Brasada.

Sunriver Resort, Sunriver, OR: With four full golf courses (including championship courses) and plenty of wide-open Central Oregon vistas, golfers can spread out at Sunriver. Plus, kids play for only $10 at Caldera Links, which is a great place to start out after hitting a bucket of balls. Instead of staying in a hotel room or condo, opt for a Sunriver vacation home as a base for family hiking and biking during your off-time. Take a kayak tour from Wanderlust Tours in nearby Bend, or tour breweries on an adults-only trip.

Club Pronghorn, Bend, OR: Once a private resort for club homeowners, Pronghorn is now open to traveling families. The two award-winning courses (one of which is a Fazio) may be tough for new golfers to tackle, but the Troon Golf Academy is the place to bring kids. Ours got a private lesson including video analysis to help the see what they needed to work on. Kids will also love swimming in the Pronghorn pools and participating in the excellent kids’ club, which includes off-site exploration and on-site themed activities.

Resort at the Mountain, Welches, OR: Families will love the mountain air at Mt. Hood’s Resort at the Mountain, where kids can golf with assurance that they are more than welcome! Family golf is offered Memorial Day through Labor Day from 3-5 pm weekdays, during which families pay only $30 per foursome. Nearby, Government Camp and Mt. Hood offer mountain biking and hiking, and parents can take turns at the spa.
