Silvies Valley Ranch will have a new addition in mid-June. The Links at Silvies Valley Ranch today announced the construction of an 18-hole, reversible putting course that will enhance the playing experience for golfers of all levels. The putting course, which is expected to open in mid-June of 2021, will be free to all resort guests and paying players. Silvies, a 140,000 acre eco-resort featuring four stand-alone golf courses, will open its golf season this May.
“Silvies Valley Ranch is known for its commitment to sustainability, and letting the natural beauty and unique terrain of the Oregon frontier serve as the blueprint for each new development on the property,” Hixson said. “I knew that the design for this special putting course would have to measure up to that Silvies Valley standard, which is something that players from all over have come to expect here at the ranch.”
In addition to golf, guests of Silvies Valley Ranch, in Silvies, Ore., have access to a variety of ranch activities, including horseback riding, shooting, fishing, hiking, cattle feeding and goat herding. The property features Western-inspired accommodations, farm-to-table dining options, an extensive Scotch collection, and one of the largest spas in Oregon, making the boutique eco-resort a must-visit destination.
The 2021 season will see the return of the famed Silvies Valley Ranch goat caddies, which carry special-made bags to hold clubs, balls and course refreshments. Goat caddies are available to assist players on both of the Hixson-designed short courses at the property – McVeigh’s Gauntlet – the seven-hole challenge course, and Chief Egan, the nine-hole par-3 course.
“Guests from all over and all levels of play continue to be blown away by our course offerings here at SIlvies, which is why we are committed to the continuous expansion and improvement of our golf offerings,” said Sean Hoolehan, Silvies golf course superintendent. “This state of the art putting course will be the perfect complement to our current golf facilities, and we cannot wait for our guests to experience it.”
