An Interview With Joslyn Lindsey, Marketing Coordinator

By Brian Weis


The ultimate golf vacation is staying and playing at a golf resort. Below is an interview with Joslyn Lindsey who shares some valuable information about staying and golfing at Running Y Ranch Resort.

Give our readers an overview of the golf resort.
With the Cascade Mountain Range as your backdrop, your stay at Running Y Ranch Resort is designed to be utterly unforgettable. The resort offers a collection of upscale accommodations, including lodge rooms, chalets and custom homes, a full-service spa, the only Arnold Palmer-designed golf course in Oregon, and more than 7,000 square feet of event space, among other noteworthy amenities. Guests enjoy easy access to a world of outdoor adventures, including hiking and biking, kayaking, fly fishing and bird watching during their stay at Running Y Ranch Resort, which is long considered one of the best places to stay in Oregon.

Share with us your room accommodations configurations. What group sizes can accommodate?
With an 82-room Lodge, numerous vacation rentals and over 7,000 square feet of meeting space, Running Y Ranch Resort is the perfect location for groups of all sizes. Whether you are planning a small, intimate gathering or a large event, we have a meeting space that can accommodate you. Our indoor meeting spaces can accommodate up to 450 guests. Outdoors, we have a beautiful Pavilion that overlooks our Arnold Palmer-designed golf course and can accommodate up to 200 people.

What type of restaurants do you have on property and what type of dining experience can one expect?
Located in the Lodge, Ruddy Duck Restaurant provides a hearty, New American cuisine with an innovative twist in a casual setting. With large windows and a beautiful outdoor patio, guests can enjoy the amazing views of the property while they dine. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, have a full-service bar, and even offer a kid-friendly menu so every member of the family can enjoy their meal. The restaurant's name pays homage to one of our favorite aquatic birds commonly found at the resort and Upper Klamath Lake. You may even see these creatures flying past the restaurant's floor-to-ceiling windows.

Beyond golf what are the top three amenities golfers and non-golfers can enjoy on property?
Our resort features the beautiful, newly remodeled Sandhill Spa, which is a popular attraction for many guests. Offering massage, facials, body wraps, manicures, pedicures and more, Sandhill Spa is the perfect place to relax and renew after a day of outdoor adventures.

As an all-season resort, we are proud to offer seasonal activities for all guests to enjoy. In the summer, you can see amazing views of Klamath Lake with a guided horseback riding tour. In the winter, guests can enjoy an evening of ice skating and family fun at the Bill Collier Community Ice Rink that is located on property.

In addition, Running Y Ranch Resort also has a newly remodeled Sports & Fitness Center featuring an indoor pool, hot tub and dry sauna, a large fitness room with cardio and weight machines, arcade games, multiple outdoor sports courts, bike rentals and a playground. Guests can enjoy their usual morning workout, have fun in the pool, or relax in the hot tub or sauna all while staying on resort property.


Please supply a sample itinerary for a long buddies weekend?
Day 1: Upon arriving at Running Y Ranch Resort, guests would check in to their lodge room or vacation rental and have time to relax before enjoying amazing views and a delicious dinner on the patio at our Ruddy Duck Restaurant.

Day 2: After a full night's rest, the group could start their day off with a morning tee time on Oregon's only Arnold Palmer Signature Course. Following their round or two of golf, guests could relax with a deep tissue massage at Sandhill Spa - the perfect treatment for those sore muscles you receive after a day of golfing. To end the day, guests could take the quick, 15-minute drive into Klamath Falls and have a fabulous dinner at one of the many restaurants our front desk agents could recommend to them.

Day 3: The third day of this wonderful vacation could be spent with a day trip to see one of Oregon's Seven Wonders - Crater Lake National Park. Less than an hour drive from the resort, Crater Lake National Park offers stunning views, amazing history, and a large variety of hiking trails to enjoy. Before heading back to the resort, we recommend that guests enjoy dinner at Annie Creek Restaurant located in the Mazama Village at Crater Lake.

What area tourist attractions might you recommend while in the area?
The one must-see attraction in Klamath County is Crater Lake National Park.

At its center sits the eponymous lake, the deepest in the United States, distinguished by its clarity and deep blue color.

In addition to Crater Lake National Park, Klamath Falls features many history museums, hiking and biking trails, fantastic boating, fishing, and hunting opportunities and bird watching as well as a zipline adventure with Crater Lake Zipline.
