A Little about Roseburg County Club
From the Country Club Facility, awe-inspiring views await us at each window and an abundance of wildlife calls the grounds home. It is not uncommon to be teeing off, and have to pause while a doe and her fawn dart silently across the greens. To witness the resident Osprey dip into one of the ponds and snag a fish for dinner. They mostly ignore our presence as they go about their days.
Today we have an exciting group of personnel to assist you, the members. Enjoy fine dining or relaxing at the 19th hole. Spend summers by the pool and sip drinks on the patio. There are fun events hosted throughout the year to encourage members to come out to play both off and on the course.
Enjoy our practice range, putting green and pitching areas. Always remember, even the pros need to practice for their game to be “on”.
