Welcome to Bear Valley Meadows!

Bear Valley Meadows Golf Course was built in 1996 by the City and Community of Seneca and was designed

by Lee Brune.  The course is what is considered a "pasture-style" course with long fairways situated

along the Silvies' River at almost 5,000 ft.  Several websites have featured information about the Golf Course, feel free to check out the links below.  The Golf Course is overseen by a volunteer Golf Committee.

 Bear Valley Meadows is a seasonal course, only open from May through October.  This course has 9 holes and 3550 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 36.  While it seems that the Course gets many visitors throughout the long summers, few have left us ratings or feedback.  We'd love to hear from you

about your experience in our "neck of the woods".  Click on the contact tab above or leave feedback

on the website links below.  Thank You for Visiting!

 Oyster Feed 

The Oyster Feed for 2020 has been cancelled.  Please check back to see if/when it will be rescheduled.

The Annual Seneca Oyster Feed draws people from all over Oregon, Idaho, and Washington, not to mention all of the locals.  Oysters are picked up fresh from the coast and trucked to Seneca the day before the event. The event is the 3rd Saturday in May, rain or shine. The proceeds from the event go toward maintenance and improvements of the Bear Valley Meadows Golf Course.

Bear Valley Meadows Golf Course is located on Highway 395 in Seneca, Oregon. This is an indigenous course. Pay your green fees in the white box by the first tee and pick up a play card and map of the course. A ball field fence stands to the right of the first tee. The view north is of the Strawberry Mountain Range. Players turn westward for the second hole. When playing the second hole, a Helicopter Landing Pad offers the possibility for some wild bounces between the fairway and the rough beyond. These first two holes serve as the entrance to the heart and soul of the course which is hole number three. At the third hole you see the Silvies' River for the first time. You tee off over the river and drive through a narrow gap of willow thickets. While the thickets don't look like much of a hazard from the distance, up close they are dense, impenetrable jungles of willow whips and sharp, brittle punji-sticks which welcome golf balls into their lair along with the intemperate golfer's club. At the ninth hole, you tee off over the Silvies' River for the final time, then cross the river.  You will say to yourself, there are no fairway bunkers, there are no large trees looming, but the shrub willow thickets will have you begging for both by the end of the day.
