Farms and other agricultural water users ensure the availability of fresh, locally produced food to both rural and urban communities.
Irrigated agriculture also provides ancillary social benefits through boating, fishing, hunting, and other recreational amenities.
Irrigated agriculture is the backbone of Oregon’s economy, supporting a variety of high value crops sold globally.
Agricultural water suppliers are on the forefront of conservation and are always seeking innovative ways to stretch our resources.

Ridge Golf Course
The Ridge Course at Eagle Crest Resort has hosted two Northwest Opens and most recently, the 2006 Oregon Open. Playing 6,927 yard from the tips, The Ridge Course is known as a “driver’s dream” with ample landing areas for players who like to hit the long ball.
While there are plenty of holes to remark upon, the #3 par-3 is considered the signature hole of The Ridge Course, featuring elevated tees playing to a slender green and boasting magnificent views of the Cascades.
