Looking north down the ninth hole at Running Y Ranch
Klamath Falls has three public golf courses. Running Y Ranch is the closest to Point Comfort Lodge, a short forest and lakefront drive. The Par 72, challenging 7138 yard course has been ranked as one of the top 100 public courses in the country as well as one of Oregon’s best.
Does it get any better than this?
Running Y Ranch is home to the only Arnold Palmer designed course in Oregon.
“The Running Y Ranch Golf 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. If you’re in the area, it’s well worth the visit.” – Arnold Palmer
Another sunny day halfway between Klamath Falls and Point Comfort
The golf course takes advantage of all the beauty of southern Oregon, preserving the landscape with such care that is was certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The layout features Palmer’s signature fairways that are both curvy and receptive. The front nine wraps around Klamath Lakes and plays through dense woodlands while the back nine crisscrosses through Payne Canyon. The final holes are also laced with Scottish-style mounding and a few water hazards. To learn more about this course visit Running Y Golf Course
