Went on Bend, OR golf trip this past weekend. Took my brother and two friends to knock off 3 course from the Golf Digest Top 100 Courses you can play. Our itinerary was packed. We flew in SAT, August 20th, played Pronghorn, On 8/21, we played Sunriver - Meadows in morning and then Tetethrow in the afternoon. On Monday 8/22, we finished our trip by playing Sunriver - Crosswater.

This review is for Tetherow.

We came to this course because of it's ranking, but also because David Kidd also designed Bandon Dunes. The last reason we came was because of Golfboards. This was the 1st course to have Golfboards in US. After a practice lesson from our caddy on how to use the Golfboards, were were off to play this course. $20 upcharge for Golfboards along with $175 green fee is super steep. We had to take a forecaddy with us too.

Pace of Play was 4.5 hours. We had the course to ourselves on a Sunday afternoon.

Fescue greens were rock hard and running at 12. Add that to the crazy undulations, made for a roller coast round of putting. Windy day added to the challenging layout. This course had more elevation change than Pronghorn and Meadows with some wonderful views of the course. The golfboards were not easy to use and distracted from the golf. Because this was our 2nd round, it took more energy to stay on golfboards versus riding a cart or even walking. If you don't pay attention, you'll crash your Golfboards into rocks, fences, and other hazards normally you won't even pay attention to in a golf cart. The fairways were in good shape, but this type of links course will never yield immaculate conditions. The sand straps were super soft and quite a contrast from Pronghorn. The rough was also non-existent, but hazards are abound everywhere on this course. Will return, but probably won't do the golfboards again.

To play Crosswater, you must stay at Sunriver Resort, so we stayed here reluctant because of the price and non-ideal location. The resort is huge, but the customer service is lacking. They are completely unprepared to handle the destination golfer. Compared to Bandon Dunes and Pebble Beach, Sunriver completely failed.

They had no bell hops to help us check in clubs and transport them to 1st course on the resort. We had to lug the bags everywhere ourselves. This is unacceptable when they charge almost $340/night for a Motel 6 rooms. The staff was pretty clueless when it came to simple golf logistics.

This review is for Sunriver - Meadows.

Meadows was the only non-ranked Top 100 Golf Digest course on our trip so we had low expectations.

Checkin process was smooth after the bellhop incompetence. The practice facilities was very nice with beautiful mountain backdrops. The 1st couple of holes are annoying as local puddle skipper planes take off. This course has a lot going on because you have hikers, bikers, and walkers using nearby designated trails. Can be very distracting.

The greens were perfect, running at 11. We were the "rabbit" 1st ones out at 7:30 am. We played in 4.15 hours. Layout was a great blend of different doglegs and long and short par 3's. The wet marsh and water is in play for a few holes. Rough was very penal and sandy traps were in great shape.

Tee boxes were level and had little damage. Was pleasantly surprised by this course, just not a fan of all the distraction nearby.

Here is review for Pronghorn.

As you arrive after a 10 mile winding road, you approach the Pronghorn golf course. After securities guards check your reserved tee time, you arrive at the bag drop. The attendants unload your bag, welcome you to the course, and even drive and show you were the clubhouse and facilities are. For a SAT, 2:00 pm tee time, the course was pretty empty. We had a pregame meal that was overpriced. The practice facilities was very nice, but no NXT tour range balls as advertised on blogs. The men's locker room was closed for the groom to hang out with his buds for his wedding later that night. We just got off the plane and was told ahead of time that we could use the locker room to get dressed. The fact that we were not allowed was a sour note. For $175 green fee and not even get an apology is unacceptable.

The course:

Greens were pure, fast, and immaculate running at a true 11. Fairways, rough were pristine. The only compliant would be the sand traps that were a mix a sand and crushed lava rocks. Our forecaddie Nick was super helpful, but 1 forecaddie is not enough for a foursome. The layout is a typical Jack Nicklaus. This is one of his crowd jewels in the PAC Northwest that he actually plays.

There is plenty of water comfort stations on the course. The cart girl came by a couple of times and the snack shop was well stocked.

Played at 2 pm today with a couple of friends. Never played this course as i was scared off by pace of play and conditions.

I really enjoy this very expansive layout. This is a big big golf course with wide tree lined fairways. Did not think a course this existed in middle of LA.

Greens were running at 8.5. Fixed two to three ball marks per green. Sandtraps were average. Fairways were lush with plenty of coverage. They used recycled water here.

Rough was thick and juicy and super penal. I played the blacks from over 7000 yards. Some par 4s i was hitting driver, 3 wood to get on.

Customer service was great. Snack shops were well stocked.

Will return soon!

Played Los Amigos with two nice singles Carl amd Jason. Told them about Gk and encourage them to check us out.

Greens were smooth with ocassional bumps running at 8.5/9. Fairways have good coverage and rough was not very long with areas of dirt amd dry patches.

Sand traps were maintained and semifluffy. Tee boxes in good shape amd level.

Layout is unique mixture of holes.

Customer service was great and snack shop was good value.

Will return in near future.

Played Classic Club with brother on family vacay.

100 + degree heat. Gorgeous clubhouse. Nice practice area with Titliest NXT tour range balls.

Greens smooth and running at 9.5/10. Fairways were in great desert shape but had a few mud balls from overwatering.

A few traps had standing water puddles. Rough had good coverage with some burned out spots.

TEE BOXES WERE OUTSTANDING.

Layout is super challenging with water in play for many holes. Good mix of fade and draw holes.

$99 rack rate with $15 food amd beverage voucher was not cheap, but worth a visit.

Played with a buddy today. He lives in West La and i live in Monterey Park and it took us 30 mins to meet here for 958 am tee time. Greens have little small holes punched and did not affect roll, but crusty and running at 9.5/10. Fairways were dry. Tight lies even on well struck tee shots in middle of fairway.

Rough was not penal, but hazards lurk everywhere on this course.

Sand traps were hardpan and tee boxes were average.

4 hour pace was pleasant.

Overpriced at $85/ round.

Nice 3 hr round at Trump today.

All waterfalls have been removed because of drought.

Customer service was execellent. Super windy day made for challenging round of golf.

Greens were in awesome shape...running firm and fast at 10.5.

Tee boxes level amd lush. They are working on a few bunkers in various holes. Most were nice and fluffy. The course is in great shape now with spectucular views.

Will return at discounted rate.

Played last Wednesday in corporate tournament. Pop was 5 hrs for a scramble format. Greens were smooth and putted around 8.5. Fairways and rough in decent shape. Customer service was average. Sand traps were average. We had drink tickets and they closed the snack shop at the turn so we could only redeem with cart girl. She was extremely unpleasant and could care less if we tipped her a c note. Great views on back 9 including a specutacular 18th hole with views of San Diego skyline.

Nice hot day out at Hansen Dam with Nick, Ron, and Woody. Watch for large potholes driving from entrance to clubhouse. As you drive up to entrance, a big sign that the course uses recycled water. For a muni in Los Angeles, conditions were above average. Fairways were good shape with plenty of coverage. Rough was not too thick, but very sticky. It was hard to do any bump and run as the aprons swallowed up all approach shots. Sand traps were only fair, some maintained better than others. Looks like maintenance gave up on some bunkers. Drivable 1st two holes can slow starting pace. Greens were in good shape, but putted maybe at a 8. Customer service was pleasant and efficient. For $27 bucks to ride, a good value with POP under 4 hrs.

Went to Portland area for golf trip and played on 7/13 and 7/14.

I want to personally thank Nickesquire for some detailed insight and reviews on all the courses in the Portland area. Using his reviews as a guide plus a personalized run down of the 4 courses we chose was valuable! This was course #4.

This was our last course on our 2 day (36 holes a day) golf binge in Oregon/Portland.
The course is semi-private so it had that feel to it as soon as you drive up. Happy Hour is one of the best deals around, so take advantage before or after the round. Just don't stuff your face like we did and get food coma on hole #1. Greens were in great shape running @ 10. Fairways and rough and the 200 traps were well maintained. The layout of the this course was tricky with many red stakes all over the holes in the back 9. Our group had a tough time playing this course and scoring. Customer service was fantastic!

We played Pumpkin Ridge the morning of 7/14. The course is majestic and expansive. Obviously, it is one of the more famous courses in Portland because of what Tiger did here as an amateur. Layout is very expansive. It's a super grand course with acres of trees and golf holes. Reminded me of playing Plantation course in Maui without the crappy blind tee shots. Greens were in good, but not great shape. Lots of unrepaired ball marks. Fairways and traps were good, but not great. They decided to tuck all the pins today including #9 on the left side right by the water. Maintenance was pestering us all day. This was a prime 9 am tee time on a Tuesday, which was kinda annoying because we paid $111 to play this place. Pace of play was 5 hours behind 4 walking locals. Course is super challenging even from white tees and a few holes are definitely memorable. Customer service was great and the guys in our group thought the cart girl was Top Ten Best Ever!
