Central Washington is a great place to golf and RV during the fall. Oasis RV Park and Golf in Ephrata is a good choice for both of those activities. Recently under new management, owners Derek and Daneile Litterell extend a warm welcome to all. Oasis RV Park and Golf is conveniently located equal distance from Seattle (170 miles) or Spokane (120 miles), both via Interstate 90.
The par 27, 9-hole golf course is a mere 930 yards. Your short game will thank you for this course, which offers great practice for that short game, which we all know accounts for 70 percent of the shots in golf! Distances range from 65 yards to 140 yards. The Oasis Municipal Golf Course opened in 1975 and features bent grass greens, winter rye fairways, and a few water hazards to enhance the challenge. For beginners, try out the 18-hole mini golf course, which is adjacent to the main golf course.
A few other enjoyable golf courses a short drive from Ephrata include The Links at Moses Pointe in Moses Lake 17 miles away, along with Crescent Bar Golf Course in nearby Quincy, 16 miles away.
The Oasis RV Park features 80 sites and all the amenities you will need, including electricity, water, pull through sites, shady trees, dump station, cable TV, and Wi-Fi. The resort also offers a convenience store and Laundromat. Hiking trails around the park are available, as well as a child’s fishing pond. There’s also a swimming pool and basketball court.
Ephrata’s claim to fame of late comes from a recent MSN report. The town of about 7,600 has America’s fastest Internet download speeds, averaging 85.54 megabits per second, more than twice as fast as any other town. About a decade ago, the local utility serving the town, the Grant Public Utility District, installed fiber optics as part of its communications system. The speedy service is a benefit of that effort, says Ephrata’s city administrator. Thus, when you visit Ephrata, you can stay connected – at the speed of light!
