  • Bear Valley Meadows Golf Course | city-of-seneca

    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.

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.

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. ​ Photos Courtesy of Meaghan Leigh Photography the Blue Mountain Eagle. Click the photo to be directed to the Article. 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.

Seneca Community Garden The first tomato, a Roma tomato, of the year! Seneca Community Garden The Smiths tending the Garden. Lots of weeding to do. Show More In 2009 Master Gardener and resident Suzanne Findlay became instrumental in bringing the idea of a community garden to Seneca. By enlisting the help of a group of residents along with City officials, local ranchers, 4H and the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Indians, this incredible asset was born. Today, work continues at the “No-Way” Seneca Community Garden. The harsh climate makes the conditions for gardening here in Seneca quite challenging, hence its name. This year there are no fees and the garden is open to all who are brave of heart and interested in digging, planting, weeding and, when the time comes, harvesting. Eight of the nine beds have been tilled and have started to sprout lettuce, peas, potatoes, cucumbers, onions, and radishes with starts of broccoli, cabbage, and squash planted. Bed #5 is dedicated to children interested in learning to grow their own food. On most days there will be an adult at the garden in the morning hours for children to come by and play in the dirt. Everyone is welcome to visit the garden during daylight hours. You can sit a spell or stroll around the beds and watch nature produce its bounty. Special recognition goes to Dale and Vicki McCormick and Jerry Smith for weed eating around the beds and to Barb Northington and Dale McCormick for tilling the garden beds. The No-Way Seneca Community Garden Philosophy: Provide adequate garden space for city residents. Pool gardening knowledge and encourage new gardeners to grow food. Share harvest with others. We are interested in acquiring a small garden shed if anyone has one to donate. Please call Suzie Hood for information. 541-575-9101 Garden Manager

  • City of Seneca, Oregon | Oregon | United States

    The Wigwam At the 2016 Oyster Feed Seneca_2 Seneca, looking north from the south of town. Some of the many small buildings you see in the foreground were originally bachelor bunk houses at Camp 1. When Camp 1 was no longer in use the buildings were brought to Seneca and made into houses. Sometimes two small buildings were put together to make a larger family house. Some, if not all, of these small buildings were built at the Herrick mill site outside of Burns. Seneca Logo 2017 Logo designed by Eloise Boren at E R Printing & Graphics, The Wigwam At the 2016 Oyster Feed 1/25 Notices Forms About Us - The City of Seneca sits nestled in high Bear Valley near the base of the Blue Mountain Range. Sitting at almost 5000 ft, Seneca is known for its record low temperatures (-54 degrees!) throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring months. This small community of less than 200 people has great pride in its town and relishes the remote and personal feel that Seneca offers it's residents. At any given time of the year, there are groups of children riding bikes and playing throughout the town - so we ask that you slow down, watch for children, and enjoy your visit to our beautiful valley. ​ The Seneca post office was established in 1895 and the city named by postmistress Minnie Southworth for her brother-in-law, prominent Portland judge Seneca Smith. While early homesteaders moved into the valley in the late 1800's, Seneca only began growing in 1929 when it became the northern terminus of the now-vacated Oregon and Northwestern Railroad , owned by the Edward Hines Lumber Company , which extended south to Burns. That time marked the beginning of large-scale shipping of Ponderosa Pine logs to the Hines sawmill in Hines from Seneca and the surrounding National Forest. The company established a planing mill and railroad shops in Seneca, and it became essentially a company town. In 1940 Seneca's population was 275. Logging in the area began to decline in the 1970's, and the Hines company ceased operations of its lumber mills and railroad in 1984. The town was incorporated as a city on August 6, 1970 as lumber company control began to wane.
