There is a new golf resort in Southern Oregon that might be in its infant stages, but shows all the signs of becoming a classy resort.    

What started as Eagle Point Golf Course in Eagle Point, Ore. in 1996 has turned into the Resort at Eagle Point, a place that businessman Bob Hyer purchased in 2013 and has begun the move into the resort world of golf.

The course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., has been considered one of the top tracks in the Pacific Northwest since opening 22 years ago, now has three chalets to go with the golf. And more could be on the way. Hyer said plans could eventually call for a lodge, swimming pool and spa. 

The chalets opened in July of 2017 giving the resort 12 total rooms. And this summer, the rooms have been virtually full giving Hyer optimism for more. A lodge with as many as 24 rooms could be next on the drawing board. An events center could also be part of the plans.

When Hyer bought Eagle Point, the course had 157 members. There are now 330. Play is up – and for good reason. The Resort at Eagle Point is a place where the conditions are terrific year round, thanks to the $1.2 million worth of sand Jones put onto the course when he built it.

The course is in a good position for becoming a resort. With Crater Lake National Park only an hour away, people from around the world frequent Southern Oregon – and Hyer hopes they keep coming to the Resort at Eagle Point. 

It is now more than just a golf course; the place is a destination. And proving to be a destination worth the trip to Southern Oregon.
