Golf Shop

Everything you need to be a golf pro is available at the Chena Bend Pro Shop.  Clubs, clothing, gloves, golf balls and more are kept in stock to meet your needs.  Not sure exactly what you need? Ask one of the qualified staff to assist you in your selections.

Rentals
No need to worry if you don’t have your own set of clubs. Standard and premium sets are available for rent during business hours. Power carts and pull carts are also available on a daily basis.

Complimentary club rentals are available for Soldiers E1 - E5.

FlingGolf

Chena Bend Clubhouse and Golf Course now offers FlingGolf, a new, alternative way to enjoy our golf course, using a specially-designed FlingStick and a regulation golf ball. Instead of hitting the ball with a club, players use a single FlingStick to shape every shot from tee to hole.

FlingGolf can be played by any skill level and alongside regular golfers, so you won't feel left out of the action. With just one FlingStick, your all-in-one piece of equipment enables players to an up-tempo game of flinging the ball for distance and putting on the green.

FlingGolf FlingSticks are available for rent within the Chena Bend Pro Shop.
