This course is located on the dry side of the Cascade Mountains midway between Portland and San Francisco. The land has been a cattle ranch for the last 100 years or so, and although 3,600 acres are slated for development, another 6,000 acres will remain as a working ranch. The architectural theme is out of the Wild West, including a clubhouse that features open trusses and high ceilings. The course features five tees to choose from, all aiming at Palmer's trademark curvy and receptive fairways. Although many of the resort's 900 homes will be built along the course, they will be set back at least 40 yards and well out of play. The first four holes curl along the edge of Klamath Lake and its accompanying wetlands. Following the fifth hole the course disappears into tree-lined Payne Canyon, where it takes on a tougher feel. The back nine begins on open plains that are spotted with a couple water features and spectacular Scottish mounding. After the steep drop on #12, a 185-yard, par 3, the course winds back through the sage-scented canyon alongside a creek lined with hand-placed stones. "Golf Digest" chose this course #1 on its list of "Best New Affordable Public Courses" for 1998.

|Relatively inexpensive for a course of this stature.
Nice wide fairways, but don't get off of them. Once you get on the greens, you will realize why Palmer liked to putt. Very tricky greens. The slope rating really isn't as high as I think it should be.
The white tees are more conducive to scoring for even the mid handicapper. The blues and the Palmers are definitely for single digit players. Great views and well maintained. Recommended for anyone who comes to Oregon. Only a little over a couple hour drive south of Bend. Look me up for a round!
