Surrounded by the picturesque Rogue Valley and built on a 100 year old pear orchard, Centennial Golf Club features spectacular views.  A newer, but Golden Era inspired design, the course is very walkable with wide generous fairways and run-up options surrounding many of the greens.  The green tees measure about 5,700 yards and the forward red tees around 5,200.

From the Architect John Fought:

“The design at Centennial was inspired by the classic designs from the Golden Age of golf course architecture when such geniuses as Donald Ross, Alistair Mackenzie and AW Tillinghast were creating their master works.”
