Centennial Golf Club featured in Golf Digest January Issue 2007

"Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley has a reputation for culture, starting with the annual Oregon Shakespere Festival in Ashland.  The area is also a favorite among campers, hikers, river-rafters and wine-glass swirlers.  Until now, golf wasn't much of a factor, but Centennial Golf Club, which opened in Medford last May, is changing things."
