Coming in August: Great weather, fantastic rates, and a favorite event in store at Black Butte Ranch

Nothing beats August at Black Butte Ranch

Forget about the dog days of summer — August is just about the perfect time to come and play at Black Butte Ranch.  

With average highs around 84 degrees and cloudless High Desert skies on tap for the entire month of August, there are still so many opportunities to make an everlasting memory here at Black Butte Ranch.

To celebrate the last full month of summer, Black Butte Ranch is offering a special rate. After 11 a.m. on Sunday or any time on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday through August, golfers are invited to play Big Meadow or Glaze Meadow for just $69. The rate includes cart.

For all but the last few days of August, the sun won’t set until well after 8 p.m., which means Black Butte Ranch’s twilight rates are very much still in play. Play either course for just $49 after 3 p.m.

Black Butte Ranch has stay-and-play packages to suit most every guest, and there is still time to plan a group trip at Black Butte Ranch or family reunion in August. Book a round of golf or bring a group of 9 or more in August and receive 25 percent off a cabin, home, or condo when you book your stay with the Black Butte Ranch rental program.

With a group of nine or more, golf is just $64 per person, and the rate includes 18 holes of golf, cart, and range balls. (Offer valid after 11 a.m. on Sun or any time Mon-Wed Through Aug. 31.)  

And there is still time to register for the Homeowner Guest Invitational Golf Tournament, too, which always makes for a perfect finish to the summer. With a new Aug. 7 registration deadline, there is still time to register to play in one of Black Butte Ranch’s oldest and most popular traditions.

The two-person, 36-hole tournament takes place over three days, Aug. 24-26. It includes horse race, two rounds of tournament golf, putting tournament, reception, dinner, lunch, hosted beverages, and awards. If you are a Black Butte Ranch homeowner, don’t miss this annual event. The cost is $800 per two-person team, and the price is all-inclusive.

  • With three sessions in August (Aug. 3, 10, and 17), Black Butte Ranch’s Adult/Child Three-Day Golf Schools offer an opportunity to spend some quality time with the kids before they head back to school. One parent and one child will learn the fundamentals of the game together during the two-hour clinic, held from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. Then both parent and child get to share a round of golf and apply what they’ve learned. For more information on how to register for the Adult/Child Three-Day Golf School or to take a lesson from any of our Black Butte Ranch instructors, visit our lessons page or call 541-595-1294 to sign up. The link also includes a calendar of Black Butte Ranch’s golf schools, clinics and camps.
  • The two-day 100-yards-and-in clinic (Aug. 5-6, Aug. 12-13, Aug. 19-20, Aug. 26-27) continue through August. The clinic focuses on solely on the short game, which is the quickest way to shave strokes.
  • Every Thursday through August, Glaze Meadow’s practice putting green will host the Junior Putting Challenge. The fun events will begin at 3:30 p.m. every Thursday and include divisions for youngsters age 6- to 9-years-old (nine holes), 10-14 years old (18 holes) and 15-17 years old (18 holes). Cost is just $5 and includes golf balls and ice cream. Immediately after, the staff at Black Butte Ranch will offer SNAG Golf, perhaps the most enjoyable way to introduce kids to the game.
  • Our popular two-day junior golf camps (Aug. 7-8, Aug. 14-15, Aug. 21-22, Aug. 28-29) are a great place for kids to sharpen their skills. The Ranch tailors instruction to the age and abilities of each student. Each class size is limited to 15 golfers, which allows for plenty of attention from Black Butte Ranch’s staff of golf professionals.
