WILDHORSE GOES TO WORK ON PENDLETON GOLF COURSE
Pendleton, OR – The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation and Wildhorse Resort & Casino took ownership of the 248 acre Pendleton Country Club (PCC) on May 30 and many changes to the facility can already be seen. Some changes may not be visible to the eye but will have an impact on operations.
Since taking over the property, Wildhorse has been working on a variety of changes to the PCC. From new coolers to new light bulbs to lawn maintenance, Wildhorse is putting a personal touch on the long successful golf facility.
While Wildhorse works to complete a sizeable rebuild at the resort’s golf course, staff have been working hard to give attention to both facilities.
All personnel on staff at the time of the transition have been hired by Wildhorse Resort & Casino.
PCC had a long successful run since 1928 but membership dwindled over recent years. With the cost of maintenance exceeding income, PCC leadership made the decision to sell. The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) made a proposal and the two parties found common ground.
