Pronghorn Golf Club (Bend, Ore.)

This scenic and secluded Central Oregon club was strictly private when it opened in the mid-2000s, but the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course that winds through lava rock ridges and outcroppings while offering views of the Cascade Mountains is now open to the public. The Tom Fazio Championship course is the property’s member course and is home to one of the game’s most dramatic and memorable par threes, as the 8th hole features a 45-foot canyon and an exposed lava tube. The golf club is part of Juniper Preserve, a wellness destination with a modern lodge and spa.
