The Wildhorse Golf Course is modeled after the traditional Scottish links-style course with plenty of bunkers and tall grass. The four sets of tees range from 5,718 yards at the front to 7,112 yards from the championship tees.

The course is playable yet challenging for all levels of players. Each hole is surrounded by spectacular, unobstructed vistas with gentle rolling hills and fairway mounds that reflect the foothills of Blue Mountains. Water comes into play on half of Wildhorse's holes, including the spectacular signature 18th and 62 bunkers complete the challenge. Nearly every green is open to a low, bouncing approach, with a couple of raised-green exceptions or those fronted by water.

Amenities include a driving range, putting practice areas and rental clubs. The Wildhorse Golf Course is located in a resort that includes a hotel, RV Park, teepee camping, full service casino, Umatilla Tribal museum, four restaurants, video arcade, childcare center, service station and mini-mart. Golf/hotel packages are offered. Ask for the Birdie Maker's Golf Special.

The Resort complex and Golf Course are located less than five minutes from Exit 216 of Interstate 84, four miles east of Pendleton at the foot of the Blue Mountains. Driving distance from Portland is about 3-1/4 hours via I-84, halfway the distance from Portland to Boise. From Spokane or Seattle is about 4 hours.

Open year round from dawn to dusk, weather permitting.

Two beautifully maintained practice putting greens are large and undulating. This one, located near the entrance road to the clubhouse, includes a practice sand trap. Pitching is allowed around this practice green.The clubhouse at the golf course at Wildhorse Resort & Casino includes a pro shop with a full array of top brands of golf apparel and equipment, as well as the Clubhouse Grill restaurant.Wildhorse #18Water and the nearby Blue Mountains provide dramatic backstops to a beautifully maintained course. Water, like this along the course's signature 18th hole, a 408-yard par 4, provides challenge on nine of the course's 18 holes. The bridge crosses the waterIt may be the shortest hole at 132 yards, but the par 3 #16 is practically an island green, surrounded by water to the front and left, with a separate water hazard to the right leaving a narrow bridge of fairway between tee and green.More water in a dry landscape - barely seen to the left, water runs along the approach half of the fairway on the 355-yard, par 4 #15, wrapping right around the back of the green in the distance, which slopes into the water. Bunkers provide the excitementThe greens at Wildhorse Resort & Casino Golf Course are extremely fast, as these two golfers experience on the par 5, 495 yard #11. Bunkers almost completely surround the approach side of the green on this holAt 145 yards it's the second shortest par 3, but #8 provides its own excitement in the form of a formidable duck pond and a full surround of bunkers, seen beyond the water.The Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, renowned museum of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, lies just beyond the green on #6, a 395-yard par 4.Seen up close and personal....the water to the left and bunkers to the front and right protect the green on #5, a 465-yard par 5. The clubhouse can be seen in the distance.Go for it or play safe on #2? This risk-reward hole includes the intrusion of a wheat field between the tees and the green, seen in the distance, and a lineup of bunkers just to the right of the intruding grain. To be safe, play the 325-yard, par 4 hole l

    Course in great shape but too many singles and doubles allowed, not good when you're a foursome. Gets frustrating when constantly have the singles and doubles on your tail so you are either trying to hurry or having to let people play through.

    This is a gem of a course in Oregon. I get to play it at least twice a year and I always look forward to it.
