Brief Description: Running Y Ranch Resort, Southern Oregon's only full-service destination resort, is home to The Arnold Palmer Signature Course, Arnold's only course in Oregon. Situated in the heart of the breathtaking Cascade Mountain range, just across the California boarder on the shores of Klamath Lake, the resort's 300 days of sunshine add up to a four-season recreational paradise featuring world-class fly fishing, birding, hunting, and its nationally acclaimed golf course. The course is consistently rated one of the country's best. Golf Digest ranks it among the Top 100 Public Courses in the US, Top 15 Courses in Oregon and Top 5 Courses for Women in the US. Golf Week ranks it among the Top 10 in Oregon. Even more impressive, when Arnold Palmer was asked to pick a favorite golf course from his many designs, he did not choose one, but 16. The list has become known as Arnold's Sweet 16, and includes his course at Running Y Ranch Resort. The course showcases the spectacular natural landscape of Oregon's beautiful unspoiled outback. Ambling along meadows and through restored wetlands on the front nine; you will play besides lakes, woodlands and into Payne Canyon on the back. The vision of leave the land as it lies played out well in the course design, and I consider it one of my best tracks by Arnold Palmer. Playing through mature pine forests and scenic wetlands, The Arnold Palmer Signature Course plays 7,133 yards from the tips and offers a challenge for even the best golfers. Running Y Ranch Resort features a fully renovated, 82-room Lodge and new restaurant, The Ruddy Duck, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, vacation homes, sport center, indoor pool, relaxing day spa, miles of hiking and biking trails, ice skating area, conference facilities, and the exceptional four season recreation of Southern Oregon. Not too far you will find adventure at Crater Lake, the Crater Lake Zipline, ROE Outfitters, the Lava Beds and rich culture and events in Klamath County.
