Pronghorn Golf Club | Nicklaus Course

  22 Reviews

Best quote of the day. He designed a course that can be very diabolical. I've never played a track where I had to think so much about the pros and cons of so many shots. There are a few holes where you can grip it and rip it but many holes where club selection and shot making are an absolute must. Otherwise, you're in for a long and frustrating day. Course conditions were excellent overall. Greens are very fast and unforgiving, fairways, tee boxes immaculate. I played mid-afternoon weekday and pace of play was good. We basically had the course to ourselves. Considering what I paid to play some of the other tracks in the area, this is not the worst deal in town. I like that a cart is included in the green fees. A lot of other courses charge extra. This is a high desert course that is basically in the middle of nowhere with a few homes scattered around and beautiful vistas of the Cascades to the west. The club house and surrounding facilities are some of the nicest you'll find anywhere. All in all was a fun round and would absolutely play again.

After paying for my round in the pro shop and getting my bag from
bag drop,with no hint of any trouble carried over to range,then asked where the putting green and chipping area was,carried my bag over there.It was then that another golfer told me,'you know,they have no carts available'?--no i didnt but was wondering
why i was lugging my non carry bag around!
At the first tee some guy shows up with a push cart and literally
bungee cords my bag to it-i guess it was the last one they had--no scorecard no pin sheet no,we will get carts out to you as soon as we can----that turned out to be on 6 green--after the round went in to the shop,and there only response to all this was,did you pay for a cart????
lots of nice courses in bend and much better values,do yourself a favor and play elsewhere--its private your not a member

We played the Nicklaus course late in the afternoon for lower (but still high) green fees, and no caddy. The course was in fine condition, and has some interesting holes. Greens were pristine and challenging. However . . .
As visitors, we were given a practice area with divot-riddled torn up tee areas, next to the better members' area. On course, no food cart or water #except clubhouse at the turn#. No course guide was available #they were "out"#. The untitled pin sheet mounted inside the cart, was for the wrong course #Fazio#, which we discovered after 7 holes. We encountered a slow member couple ahead of us who clearly didn't appreciate us requesting to play through.
I won't be back, but if you go, I would recommend getting a caddy to take care of these service issues.

Just played the Pronghorn Nicklaus course. We played five courses in rhe Bend area (Tetherow, Crosswater, Brasada Ranch, Widgi Creek and Pronghorn), and this one was our favorite. It was a blend of Tetherow and Crosswater. Immaculate conditions (not a blade of grass out of place), beautiful layout and great views. We would play this again in a heartbeat.

Pronghorn, along with a handful of other recent additions to the area, make Bend a world class golf scene. I've had the pleasure of playing both the Nicklaus and Fazio courses here, and both are standout, high desert plays that are immaculately conditioned and lots of fun to play. While the signature hole of the property is on the Fazio course, I curry favor on the whole towards the Nicklaus, thanks to a lot of risk-reward holes (including a couple drivable par 4s). The onsite accommodations are great too, particularly for golf groups and families.
