Outside Magazine recently rated Central Oregon one of the top 15 sports and recreation communities in America, and for good reason. Here you’ll find some of the most exhilarating cycling, hiking, fly-fishing, paddling, rock climbing, rafting, and golfing in the country, all set within one of the most beautiful place on earth. And here at Brasada Ranch guests are provided a wide-array of recreational opportunities including an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Peter Jacobsen, Spa, 17,000 square foot Athletic Center, young adult and kids activity center, equestrian center, miles of hiking and biking trails, fly fishing, white water rafting, and so much more.
The Peter Jacobsen designed course is undeniably one of the most beautiful and enjoyable in Bend and Central Oregon. Here your ball soars farther, as does your eye, with dramatic, unmatched views from nearly every hole of the surrounding Buttes and Cascade Peaks. Course play is reserved for Members and Resort Guests. The Brasada Ranch Equestrian Center is one of the finest west of the Mississippi River, complete with multiple arenas, trail riding experiences and instruction for all ages and abilities, miles of soft trails over thousands of acres, a unique EquiShare program, and luxurious stalls for boarding.
The 17,000 square foot Athletic Center at Brasada Ranch includes two oversized, outdoor, seasonal pools, grotto with waterfall, and five outdoor hot tub spas. Indoors you’ll find a year-round lap pool and state-of-the-art fitness center with regularly scheduled activities.
If you are ever looking for your kids at Brasada Ranch, you will find them at the outdoor pools with water slide and “lazy river” or at The Outpost, which also hosts regularly scheduled outdoor experiences. Our youngest guests are also in heaven here with arts and crafts, plenty games and toys, and our indoor tot’s pool with fun water features.
Our professional fly fishing guides are ready to custom tailor an experience to the many surrounding rivers where the fish are biting, and clinics are held regularly on-property in the summer months at our ponds stocked with Largemouth Bass, Bluegill and Crappie. Guests are also welcome to catch and release at our ponds at their leisure.
Guests at Brasada Ranch are also just 45 minutes from the Class II and Class III waters and beautiful scenery of the Deschutes and McKenzie Rivers. Certainly there are more rivers to explore, though on these our guides have the perfect half and full day trips. Custom charter trips may be arranged for families and groups.
Central Oregon and the area surrounding Brasada Ranch is irresistible to cyclists. Miles of marked trails here on property and 484 miles of single track are within an hour's drive. The Resort also has miles of paved trails and rental bikes are available. Road cyclists simply need to turn left or right at the entrance to the Resort. Both choices lead to epic rides.
