Junior golfers always welcome at Black Butte Ranch

Junior Putting Challenge, SNAG Golf, Junior Clinic, and junior rates usher in summer

For generation after generation of families, summer has been a season to share and savor. Nowhere is that more clear than at Black Butte Ranch, which has long prided itself as being among the most family-friendly resorts in all of Oregon.

June marks the official beginning of summer. It’s a month when school lets out and daylight seems to stretch on forever. At Black Butte Ranch, Big Meadow and Glaze Meadow reach peak condition and the resort teems with energy.

Few celebrate what summer means to families more than Black Butte Ranch. So it makes sense that Black Butte Ranch would offer a special family rate of just $68 — which includes golf for two junior golfers age 17 and under and two adults. The rate is offered all summer long after 4 p.m. at Big Meadow.

Individual junior golfers get a break, too. Golfers age 17 and under who are accompanied by an adult, can play Big Meadow or Glaze Meadow for just $37 before 1:30 p.m., $27 from 1:30- p.m. to 4 p.m., and just $17 after 4 p.m.

As the peak season kicks off, Black Butte Ranch’s calendar also fills with fun activities for kids planned throughout the summer, both on and off our two junior-friendly championship courses.

Beginning June 28, and held every Thursday through August, Glaze Meadow’s practice putting green will host the Junior Putting Challenge. The fun events 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 an ice cream.

Immediately after, Black Butte Ranch will host SNAG Golf (Starting New At Golf). The FREE lesson introduces kids age 7 and older to golf by using fun, oversized equipment. SNAG Golf is held from 4:30-5:30 p.m. every Thursday at Glaze Meadow’s Driving Range, immediately following the Junior Putting Challenge.

In addition, Black Butte Ranch begins offering weekly two-day Junior Camps in June. For junior golfers age 6-17, the camps are a fun, affordable way for young players to sharpen their golf skills. Welcome to all and taught by our staff of PGA golf professionals, the camps are tailored to each age and ability level.
