Set on the beautiful desert highlands of sunny Central Oregon, amidst sparkling blue ponds, rock-rimmed buttes and green meadows, Meadow Lakes features a championship course, a beautiful clubhouse, and a friendly staff eager to make your round of golf an extraordinary experience. Meadow Lakes has been featured in the USA Golf Journal and is one of the first-ever recipients of Golf Digest’s National Environmental Leaders Award. Recently, the Bend Bulletin called Meadow Lakes “one of Central Oregon’s best golf values.”
Meadow Lakes has been featured in many national publications, and received the inaugural Golf Digest Environmental Leaders Award. Many other golf courses have been modeled after the project completed by the City of Prineville. Meadow Lakes is an active municipal golf course that has hosted two Oregon Amateur State Championships, including the 1998 Oregon Mid-Amateur Championship. Golfers come from all over to play the golf course that they have read and heard so much about. The challenging and enjoyable layout, designed by Bill Robinson, keeps the golfers coming back. Meadow Lakes truly offers Golf for Everyone!
Designed by Canada’s premier golf course architect Mr. Bill Robinson, Meadow Lakes Golf Course crosses the beautiful Crooked River 4 times. The terrain is fairly flat, making the course very walkable. As you meander through the rolling mounds, do your best to avoid the 9 ponds and 62 bunkers. Meadow Lakes is a player friendly course with generous fairways, huge greens (6,700 sq. ft. average) and 5 sets of tees. The course plays from 4,858 to 6,783 yards with a course rating from the back tees of 72.1 and a slope of 125.
Meadow Lakes has been host to the 1998 OGA Mid-Amateur Championship, 1999 OGA Public Links Championship and the 2002 OGA Team Championship. It is truly a championship golf course with a fascinating history.
In 1988, the City of Prineville was facing fines of up to $25,000 per day if it did not find a way to dispose of the wastewater that was being dumped into the Crooked River . Since the city did not have enough money to build a new water-treatment center, the EPA suggested spraying the wastewater over a 400 acre alfalfa field.
The mayor, City Manager and City Council decided to build a golf course that would dispose of the wastewater. Meadow Lakes Golf Course is now a fully functional 18-hole championship golf course and waste-water disposal site. The water is disposed of through irrigation and the 10 evaporation ponds that double as water hazards for local golfers. What was initially a huge problem, has turned into a financial and environmental success.

Word has certainly gotten out that this wastewater treatment facility is also a great golf course.

“Junior Golf Ready” Evaluation
Most children are ready to participate in an organized program at about the age of six (6). However, “readiness” varies widely from one child to the next. To help assess your child’s readiness, please answer the following questions for yourself:
- Is your child showing a genuine interest in golf?
- Will your child’s attention span be long enough to listen to brief instruction and lessons with the professional staff?
- Is your child patient enough to wait his/her turn?
- Has your child developed enough strength to swing a golf club and carry his/her own equipment?
