A change of scenery is always a good thing. And when that scenery is some of the most lush, beautiful, rolling greens on the planet? Even better.

Pack your clubs and get ready for a truly breathtaking escape: a two-night stay at Pronghorn Club and Resort in idyllic Bend, Oregon.

Golf enthusiasts (and those who love them) will rejoice at the stunning accommodations nestled along the 18th hole of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. The lavish master bedroom and bath in your luxury junior suite is the perfect cocoon: comfortable, spacious and impeccably designed.

Your escape gains momentum on the famed Nicklaus course. Before you venture out for four included rounds of golf, practice your swing - and get a few pointers - at the onsite PGA Tour Academy, one of the finest instructional facilities in the country. You'll soon see why the course made Golfweek's list of the best resort courses of 2011, as the divine greens are seemingly endless and awe-inspiring. This high-desert haven is both challenging and blissfully calming. Be prepared for the crisp mountain air to invigorate you... and your game.

Post putt, head over to the resort's Clubhouse - 55,000 square feet of top-notch amenities including a fitness centre, steam room, and the Spa at Pronghorn, where an 80-minute aromatherapy massage - to 9-iron out the kinks, of course - or a soothing gentleman's facial is the perfect way to unwind (those wanting to get back outside quickly may enjoy a 30-minute mini facial, instead).

During the ski/snowboarding season, those craving a little schuss time can hop on Pronghorn's free, daily shuttle to nearby Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort. Open 'til the end of May, it's the sixth largest ski resort in North America.

Round out your escape with a signature Pronghorn cocktail while you watch the sunset at Cascada Lounge. Follow that up with intimate dinner at Chanterelle, an elegant restaurant named after the elusive wild mushrooms that grow in the Pacific Northwest. Dine on refined, rustic cuisine such as sustainable seafood and organic root vegetables while soaking in the striking views of the entire Cascade mountain range.

Whatever the scorecard says, this escape will leave all players happy, relaxed winners - no green jackets required.
