Southern Oregon is home to an abundance of golf courses. This guide can help you decide where is the right place for you to play and spend time with your friends and family.
First off, this chart compares your course options. The Course Rating is based on how difficult a course is for a scratch golfer (someone who plays near par). The Slope Rating refers to how challenging the course is for a typical bogey player (about a 20 handicap).

|Rogue Valley Country Club - The Rogue (18 holes)||72.6||137|
|Rogue Valley Country Club - The Oaks (9 holes)||72||129|

Rogue Valley Country Club
When it comes to finding a course with the appropriate challenge level for a player, Rogue Valley Country Club has a distinct advantage because it offers both the 18-hole Rogue Course and the 9-hole Oaks Course.
This combination allows Rogue Valley Country Club members to select the level of challenge that is right for them on any particular day. Players can even customize their round by playing portions of each course (this is referred to as the Chandler Egan Course after the original course designer). Rogue Valley Country Club is the only private club in Southern Oregon and the only place that offers golfers 27 holes to play.
Rogue Valley Country Club offers several membership packages so people can select the perks they want in terms of their access to the golf courses. Golf memberships include access to 18 reciprocal clubs as well. Explore membership options here.
