Black Butte Ranch is a Resort, 36 hole golf course facility in Black Butte Ranch, Oregon. The facility has two 18 hole championship courses. They are, The Big Meadow Golf Course and The Glaze Meadow Golf Course. The resort lodge and courses are located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. These courses, which are about three miles apart, but are part of the same resort, were built on a chain of open meadows and are very hilly. The Big Meadow Course has flatter terrain and is longer and more open than the Glaze Meadow Course. In other words, the Glaze Meadow Course requires more placement shots. There are dogleg fairways to test your ability to work the ball in both directions.

I enjoyed the layout and variety of golf shots required to play the course. I wish the course charged about $15.00 less.
