Confederated Tribes of Umatilla expand by buying Pendleton CC

Updated: September 3, 2019

The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian reservation not only owns and operates Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton, Ore. but now also owns the Pendleton Country Club.

Pendleton Country Club has been around since 1928 but in recent years a dwindling membership has made it hard to stay afloat. While PCC operated successfully there since 1928, with the cost of maintenance exceeding income, PCC leadership made the decision to sell the property.  

The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) had an interest and approached the PCC leadership with a proposal. After months of due diligence and deliberation, the two parties came to an agreement and the sale was finalized.

Once again stewards of the Birch Creek Valley land, the CTUIR will delegate operation of the golf course and facilities to Wildhorse Resort & Casino.  Wildhorse currently operates an 18-hole golf course on resort property as well as other recreational entities.
