About Us - Bend Golf And Country Club

About Us 


Bend Golf & Country Club was established in 1925.

Bend Golf and Country Club began as a Chandler Egan designed nine-hole golf course in a small lumber town in Central Oregon. We are the only full-service, member-owned 18 hole golf course in one of the world’s great golf regions. The nature and setting of our golf course is irreplaceable. Our golf course features over 7000 yards of spectacular signature holes and fairways lined with majestic Ponderosa pines. Our golf course is unique in design and lay out. We feel the pursuit of the game by our members is an important part of their recreation and leisure time.

We are pleased to be owned by our club members, who have determined the future of their investment for generations. Member input has led to decisions that resisted becoming like the many other development or real estate driven courses in Central Oregon, thus letting our members enjoy the true park like setting of our course. Bend Golf and Country Club is not designed as a housing development first, and a golf course second. There simply are no houses inside of our club, making it a very special place.

Bend Golf & Country Club is Central Oregon's premier private golf club with a classic golf course, a full service facility with, tennis, pool, fitness center and private restaurant.

It’s where our members enjoy…
"Classic golf, warm friendships – in Central Oregon’s most complete and comfortable country club…since 1925."
