Auberge Resorts Takes Over Management of Pronghorn Resort

Auberge Resorts, owners and operators of luxury resorts and clubs in North America, has announced it has assumed management of Pronghorn Golf Club & Resort in Bend, Ore.

The resort and golf community joins a collection of North American Auberge properties that include Napa Valley resorts Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch and Solage Calistoga; Esperanza, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton, S.C.; Hotel Jerome, Aspen, Colo.; Auberge Residences at Element 52, Telluride, Colo.; and Auberge Residences at Mammoth, Mammoth Lakes, Calif.

Auberge Resorts plan to implement its service and design philosophies at Pronghorn and update the resort's culinary and spa programs. "We are delighted to take over the helm of this stunning golf resort and community and are honored to help create what will be the premier luxury resort in the Pacific Northwest," said Mark Harmon, principal and CEO of Auberge Resorts.

"We are also pleased to expand our portfolio of private residence clubs to six and offer members additional choices for their family vacations and romantic getaways."

Acquired by The Resort Group in February 2012, Pronghorn occupies 640 acres in Central Oregon and features a 48-suite lodge, which opened to the public in 2010, two golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Fazio, a full-service spa, multiple fine-dining restaurants and a variety of real estate options, including custom homes, condos and home sites.

Pronghorn also features a golf academy and The Trailhead, a facility for family recreation and outdoor pursuits. Guests and homeowners have access to outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, rafting, fly-fishing on the nearby Deschutes River and skiing at Mt. Bachelor, North America's fifth-largest ski area.

Pronghorn Golf Club & Resort will be the first Auberge Resorts-managed property in the Pacific Northwest. It will allow reciprocal access to members of all six communities that span a variety of geographic locations, including South Carolina, Napa Valley, Coastal Baja and the Colorado Rockies.
