History of the Senior Oregon Open Invitational

Championship Golf

Only 3.5 hours from Portland, and just south of the northern border of Washington, Wildhorse’s location allows for players from Eastern Washington, Idaho, and Montana a great opportunity to compete with their brethren from west of the mountains.

John Steidel designed Wildhorse championship golf course, which is nestled at the base of mountains and wide open terrain. The course is modeled after a traditional Scottish links-style course with plenty of bunkers and tall grass lurking to make you work a little harder than usual. Each hole is surrounded by spectacular, unobstructed vistas with gentle, rolling hills and fairway mounds reflecting the foothills of the Blue Mountains.

Resort Fun

In addition to our amazing championship, don’t forget to check out the fun to be had at the resort. Wildhorse Resort & Casino went through a major renovation a few years ago, including adding a ten story tower hotel (with the old courtyard hotel still open). There are over 300 hotel rooms available in the two hotels plus a business center, fitness center, pool, spa, new coffee shop/deli and restaurants. They also expanded their 24-hour gaming floor by over 24,000 square feet and a five screen Cineplex with two 3D screens. The resort and casino is owned and operated by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

Wildhorse Resort and Casino is home to over 1,200 slot machines plus all your favorite table games including roulette, craps, poker, blackjack, keno and bingo. CLICK HERE to view a list of your favorite slots.
