As part of its outreach program with local public schools, The Children's Course introduces elementary school students to the game of golf using SNAG (Starting New at Golf) equipment and set of simplified rules. Each lesson will teach healthy habits and at least one of The Children's Course's nine core values—courtesy, respect, responsibility, judgment, confidence, sportsmanship, honesty, integrity, and perseverance—which students will learn to apply in everyday situations.

Quail Run Golf Course carpets the pine-lined tundra of Central Oregon surrounded by the peaks of nearby mountain ranges. The 18-hole, par 72 layout features groves of towering trees that stud the edges of fairways and water hazards that come into play on four holes. The 9th and 18th holes are the hardest on the course, respectively, adding climactic conclusions to both the front- and back-nine without forcing any golfers to reconnect with estranged caddies.
Before taking to course, golfers can warm up at Quail Run's multifaceted practice area, which features an all-grass driving range, a putting green, and a short-game area with a sand trap. Those looking for an expert opinion on their swings or the messages encrypted in an ancient scorecard can call the pro shop to reserve a tee time with PGA pro Todd Sickles.

Old-growth douglas firs, wetlands, and 43 bunkers populate Stone Creek Golf Club's award-winning, par 72 layout designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy. The 165-acre course’s front nine holes are straighter laced, and the back nine’s tree-lined fairways of fescue grass challenge swingers with elevation changes and distractingly beautiful views of Mount Hood, the same "Hood" made popular in mainstream rap music. Players can hone their aim at the hitting stations of extensive practice greens, which include a full swing area with target greens at a variety of distances, before returning to face hole nine's six sand traps.
After sending dozens of dimpled balls soaring through the air, golfers can pop in at the Stone Creek Deli for a hot dog and foamy swigs of beer. Links magazine named Stone Creek Golf Club a Top 10 Green Course for using pesticides sparingly and only irrigating stretches of grass currently in use, inviting ground-nesting birds to build their two-story colonial mansions in the fallow areas.

Tucked just south of the Chetco River’s rushing waters, the championship course at Salmon Run boasts its own aquatic artery, which wends along ryegrass fairways, passing sandy bunkers and challenging doglegs. Players soak up views of forested slopes as they face off with the course’s signature island green, whose watery surroundings and treacherous sand bunker demand the precision of a veterinarian surgeon operating on the world’s last unicorn. To gear up for the course’s myriad challenges, swingers can warm up at one of the driving range’s 10 hitting stations.
Course at a Glance:
Charbonneau Golf Club cloaks the tree-studded countryside with three executive-length, nine-hole courses. The 18-hole course combination that presents the longest total yardage?the yellow nine and the green nine?presents 4,261 yards of tee-to-green challenges. Though there are no par 5s on any of the courses, a variety of lengthy par 3s and four par 4s that exceed 300 yards will present various difficulties for golfers playing from the longest tees. Water hazards come into play on six of the 27 holes, adding variety to the course?s natural hazards of thick tree-lines and quicksand bunkers. Before rounds, golfers can warm up at a practice complex that includes a putting green, chipping area, and a large driving range.
