Pronghorn Golf Course - Jack Nicklaus

Excellent course. Amazing site. Greens were slow because had been aerated, otherwise, it would have been perfect.

What a waste

Clubhouse personal were condescending. They offer no services and amenities. No drinking water and no beverage cart was available on a warm Sat afternoon. No help with your cart and no marshals around to keep play moving. I get better service at my local Municipality for $40 dollars a round.

Pronghorn Nicklaus Signature Course.

The Pronghorn Nicklaus was in excellent condition and very interesting, somewhat challenging layout.
Greens are quick with subtle reads.
Nice. Driving range and practice greens

So disappointed

This is the 2nd time I have played this course. I will not play it again. Two bad experiences. The greens were in rough shape. I played another Bend course yesterday so I know this was not because of weather conditions. The pin placements were mostly on the edge of the greens and because of the green conditions a ball would not hold a green. The sand traps at 4PM were still wet and muddy. I called before getting a tee time and ask about aeration. The said it would not be until later. The tee boxes had been aerated and markers on many tee boxes on the wrong box. When told by a worker that the tee marker was forward I said that the score card shows it at this yardage. He responded that the score cards are wrong. The fairways were OK. I think there are much better courses to play in Bend than this course for the money.

Golf with a concert

First seven holes went smooth, and then the band started warming up at the stage they had set up for a charity event. The next 5 holes were interrupted by concert volume music. Was very distracting and not something I thought I would have to deal with when paying 250$ for a round of golf.

Inexcusable

This review is all about pace of play. The Fazio course is exceptional. 5 and a half hours to play however, is inexcusable. No effort was made to move along play. 5 hours the day before on Nicklaus. (in record heat) Wrote to the resort and received no response

This course is beautiful.

This couse is beautiful. The staff is off the hook friendly. Every staff member we walked by checked on us to see if we needed anything. The course was challenging and you will hit every club in your bag. We had a great experience.

Course Condition Substandard

I have played here over a dozen times and the greens were the worst ever. They were bumpy, sandy and looked diseased in places. Now, as usual, the rest of the course was great, layout amazing, pace good and staff friendly and helpful. I agree with the previous reviewer, it was unusual that we also had no starter and never saw a Marshall all day. I am not complaining, we knew the course and it was not very busy. However, for many golfers the greens are a benchmark for course conditions, Pronghorn’s are not yet up to what should be expected. I won’t go back until at least the middle of June to give the greens a chance to heal. Finally, “good news/bad news”. They have new GPS screen carts, good news. Bad news, they are the “Nanny State” kind that stop working if you dare venture to your car, or slightly off their predetermined area.

Over rated

The course lay out was very good. Greens had much to be desired.
Hospitality was non-existent as no starter to provide the lay of the land nor share there were green sheets available which are imperative without GPS for walkers. No beverage services available while on the course. Also, called the pro shop from the 4th tee to ask about green position sheets & employee confirmed two walkers prior to committing to have someone bring out the pin sheets but the person who delivered them said they only had one with no remedy for getting one more.
Lastly, very poor on course sinage for walkers. Thus, VERY underwhelming experience at a 4 star rated resort.
We hope others experiences are better than ours.
