Sunriver Area Courses
Featuring Oregon’s finest golf courses, Sunriver Resort is a golfer’s paradise and an ideal choice for a golf vacation near Bend. Acclaimed architects designed Sunriver Resort’s four golf courses. Bob Cupp designed Caldera Links and Crosswater; John Fought created Meadows and Robert Trent Jones Jr. was the mastermind behind The Woodlands, regarded by many as Oregon’s finest championship golf course. The carefully preserved wetlands, forested meadows, sparkling waters and incredible mountain views all contribute to a memorable golfing experience at Sunriver Resort.
The golf courses’ aesthetic grace, holes bordering the meandering Deschutes River and the dramatic use of directional and fore bunkers provide ample challenges for every golfer.
Created by the same team that designed Crosswater, Caldera Links offers an approachable, fun family-friendly 9-hole golf experience. Featuring tour quality bent grass greens and bluegrass tees that are maintained daily, holes range from 60 to 185 yards in length, making it an ideal course to hone your skills or introduce children to the game. Children under age 12 can play free at Caldera Links when accompanied by a paying adult. The course is for Sunriver Resort guests, Caldera Springs Homeowners and guests and Crosswater Club members.
Golf Digest named Crosswater one of America’s 100 Greatest Courses, stating, “It is simply not possible to find a better manicured course anywhere in the world. Period.” The course offers stellar views and serious challenges. Crosswater has been a four time host of the PGA National Championship. It is a traditional bent grass heathland style 7,683-yard golf course which crosses the Little Deschutes River seven times. Crosswater is situated on 600 magnificently scenic acres of woodlands and carefully preserved wetlands. This course features five tee placements for each hole, bent grass fairways and greens and is threaded by the gently flowing Deschutes and Little Deschutes rivers. The 18-hole course is reserved for club members and Sunriver Resort guests only.
Recognized as perhaps Sunriver’s most challenging course, Woodlands is also known for its dramatic scenery. Tree-lined corridors and sloping greens are punctuated by forests of Ponderosa and Lodgepole pines, outcroppings of lava rock, views of Mt. Bachelor and abundant natural water features. Golfers are invited to test their skills on this par 72 course – one of the best championship courses in the Pacific Northwest.
Designed by acclaimed architect and PGA Tour pro John Fought, the Meadows course at Sunriver Resort pays homage to golf courses built in the 1920s to 1930s. Offering interesting variety, expansive views and deliberate use of directional and forebunkers, the course creates challenging play for every golfer. Situated along the meandering Sun River, Meadows is also home to the Resort’s new 18-hole putting course. Meadows is an award-winning course that has hosted numerous USGA and NCAA golf championships.
Quail Run Golf Course is a beautifully maintained 18-hole championship course with panoramic views of the surrounding Central Oregon mountain ranges.
