Black Butte Ranch aims to be among Central Oregon’s greatest golf attractions. And with two award-winning golf courses in Big Meadow and Glaze Meadow — not to mention a host of amenities that include our new $11.5 million Lakeside Complex — we think we do a pretty good job.

But Black Butte Ranch also wants to cater to Central Oregon residents, and that hospitality is certainly extended to our two championship golf courses.

We know that Central Oregon golfers are always in search of a good deal. It stands to reason. With Central Oregon claiming five of Golfweek magazine’s 10 best Oregon Courses You Can Play, a list that includes Big Meadow, locals have an impressive selection to choose from.

“I want our locals to come to Black Butte Ranch and jump on board,” says Jeff Fought, director of golf at Black Butte Ranch. “We really treasure our Central Oregon players.”

This year, Black Butte Ranch is offering something new: a punch card program for our non-homeowners. For $455, golfers can play 10 18-hole rounds or 20 nine-hole rounds played from now through May 26 and in all of October. That is 17 percent off of Black Butte Ranch’s primetime spring rates

For those who prefer to play golf in the heat of the year, the summer punch cards good for play from May 26 through September costs $655. That is 18 percent off Black Butte Ranch’s primetime summer rates.

What makes the punch card a particular value is that each punch is good seven days a week, including weekend mornings. And the punches can be extend to a cardholder’s entire foursome, meaning your whole group can enjoy a nearly 20 percent discount off of Black Butte Ranch’s regular rates.

For golfers who want to play a bit more, we also have a vast selection of season passes. And the passes are as affordably priced as they have ever been:

  • A full season pass, which is good at any time seven days a week, costs $2,400. An additional family member costs $1,950.

  • Season passes that can be used any time Monday through Friday, as well as after noon on Sundays, are set at $2,100. Additional family members cost $1,800.

  • Weekday passes, which can be used any time Monday through Friday (some blackout dates apply), cost $1,900. Additional family members cost $1,600.

  • Passes that can be used from noon on Sunday through Thursday (some blackout dates apply) all season long are just $1,500. A second family member costs $1,200.

And every season passholder receive a 20 percent discount on merchandise and apparel all year at Black Butte Ranch’s golf shops.

“We have plenty to offer” Fought said. “We have two great golf courses to play, and our passholders will always be treated like members.”
