Golf Wenatchee – Planning Your Trip

Local Attractions & Activities

Pangborn Memorial Airport

Pangborn Memorial Airport has been in operation since 1941. It is named for Clyde Pangborn, who along with co-pilot Hugh Herndon, completed the first nonstop flight across the Pacific Ocean in 1931. Their epic journey began in Misawa Japan, and ended 41 hours later in East Wenatchee, Washington. Northwest Airlines began the first commercial air service to and from Pangborn Airport in 1945. Commercial air service is now provided by Horizon Air, a regional carrier that is a subsidiary of Alaska Airlines.

Pangborn Memorial Airport is approximately 2 minutes from The Highlander Golf Course.

The Columbia River

You’re never far from a dock or a boat launch in the Wenatchee Valley. Whether you get up for some early morning water-skiing while the Columbia is still glassy or paddle your way around Confluence State Park, the waterborne recreational opportunities are endless. Windsurfers, sunbathers and boaters of all types make themselves at home in these waters.

These parks are from 5 minutes to 30 minutes from The Highlander Golf Course.

Whitewater Rafting

Thrill seekers often find their way to the Wenatchee River, Washington’s biggest Class III whitewater run. Even more challenging is the Chelan River Gorge. Adrenaline-pumping rapids interspersed with lazy drifting along serene stretches of river make for memorable, invigoration trips. The rafting season typically runs from late March to early August.

Most Rafting excursions are based out of Leavenworth approximately 30 minutes from The Highlander Golf Course.
