Welcome to Wine Valley Golf Club. This stunning Dan Hixson design unfolds on a grand scale, playing over rolling hills in the shadow of the Blue Mountains. Each hole affords multiple lines of play, ensuring a pleasant round for every golfer and a true challenge for those who seek it. Be among the first to experience one of America’s most exciting new courses.
Wine Valley Golf Club excites the golfer from the opening tee shot. With broad fairways to accommodate changing conditions and hole locations, dramatic bunkers that tempt and intimidate, and bold, undulating putting surfaces, Wine Valley is both modern and timeless. The course plays fast and firm – in the style of the great links courses – rolling atop the rich soils deposited by the ancient Missoula Floods. Measuring up to 7,600 yards, Wine Valley is not a course to be experienced only once but one to return to again and again.
This golf course is marked by open spaces and movement created by wind and water over thousands and thousands of years. Conditions change every day, or more often than that. You can’t just come out here and play it the same way over and over. You’ve got to think and adapt, and to me, that is what makes golf fun. – Dan Hixson
Wine Valley Golf Club architect Dan Hixson describes his design career as a “10-year overnight sensation.” Son of a golf professional and a former head professional himself – at Portland’s Columbia Edgewater Golf Club – Hixson is a rising star in golf course design. After overseeing a handful of remodel and renovation projects in the Pacific Northwest, Hixson gained prominence with his acclaimed debut at Bandon Crossings in Bandon, Oregon. Wine Valley is his second solo design. “Some people thought I was crazy when I decided to give up the comforts of a real job for absolute uncertainty,” Hixson says, “but I’ve been fortunate to work with some great people and get a good start at being a full-time designer.
