Those famously blue skies and warm days of Black Butte Ranch? We sometimes have to wait until June before we can bask under the warm glow of the sun with much consistency.

Not this year.

Black Butte Ranch and the rest of Central Oregon is in the opening days of a warm stretch that is forecasted to last well into next week. High temperatures should hover around 70 degrees with hardly a cloud in the sky. Sounds like perfect golf weather. That means prime weather will meet prime conditions at Glaze Meadow. All in the the middle of April.

The good news is that it is not too late to book a tee time. Glaze Meadow has plenty of openings this weekend to wake up that sleepy golf swing after winter hibernation. Even better, Black Butte Ranch is still offering its 40th anniversary hat promotion and some of its best rates of the golf season.

Through April, a golfer can play 18 holes at Black Butte Ranch for $42. In addition, golfers will receive a free Black Butte Ranch golf cap with a paid green fee. Golfers can also also play nine holes for $27 after 2 p.m., but a cap is not included.

Book a tee time online, call 855-210-5305 or the Golf Shop at 541-595-1545.
