Sometimes the 2018 golf season can feel so far away. After all, the 2017 season is just beginning to wind down and winter is just ahead, leaving a few precious weeks left for golf at Black Butte Ranch.

Mercifully, though, 2018 will be here before you know it, and it will soon be time to cast the mittens, scarves, and stocking caps aside and get back out on the golf course. We can hardly wait.  

Which is why now is the ideal time to begin planning your 2018 golf trip to Black Butte Ranch, particularly larger groups of 12 or more.

“Right now golfers can get the best of the best,” said Ryan Dunning, group sales manager at Black Butte Ranch. “This is a time when we can put nearly all of Central Oregon at your disposal, without worry of being crowded out by those who booked earlier. And you can book preferred tee times, both at Black Butte Ranch and at other Central Oregon facilities.”

The advantages of booking are almost endless.

Group golf lodging discounts are available for Black Butte Ranch’s almost endless assortment of options, and your group can be locked in to golf with just a $99 deposit.

Those who book now get first crack at our bonus packages. That includes Black Butte Ranch’s Spring and Fall Buddies, Burger and Beer Bonus for Group Bookings (12 or more golfers), which includes a free burger and beer with each round played, in addition to cart and range balls, advance tee times, and the full group coordination that comes with any group booking.

And couples group golf trips can be made with specials rates for lodging, golf, dining, transportation, and even wine tours.

A feature of Black Butte Ranch is the ability of Dunning to plan arrangements all in one place. From negotiating rates and booking golf, to arranging every part of your desired itinerary, Dunning can handle it all.

And his services are particularly valuable in fall, when Dunning has the easiest access to all of Central Oregon. Black Butte Ranch’s group sales team can fully customize a Central Oregon Golf Trip to include whatever it is that you desire: A round at one of Central Oregon’s multiple heralded golf courses, a brewery tour, offsite dinner reservations with roundtrip transportation from Black Butte Ranch, and more.

The pricing is particularly competitive, too. Those who book their 2018 trips now tend to be able to take advantage of 2017 pricing.

“Regardless of budget, the only real limit this time of year is your imagination,” Dunning said. “We can put together a package that will be perfect: The days your group wants, the tee times you want at all the golf courses you want play, and all at the best pricing we can offer.”

Now is the time to start planning.
