Award-Winning Golf Courses
Sunriver Resort hosts four golf courses, all open between spring and fall and available to overnight guests and as part of the resort’s Unlimited Golf Stay & Play Packages. Here’s a bit more about what to expect at each course:
Woodlands: Renowned course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed the popular Woodlands golf course, noted for how it incorporates natural surroundings into the action. Over the span of 18 scenic holes, golfers may pass forests of pine, numerous water features, and even the occasional cluster of lava rock.
Crosswater: The 18-hole Crosswater course was named one of the 100 greatest courses in the United States by Golf Digest—and earns the acclaim with views that range from the winding Deschutes River to nearby Cascade peaks, well-maintained wetlands, and a variety of creative features across 600 wooded acres.
Meadows: Inspired by graceful courses of the 1920s and 1930s, the 18-hole Meadows golf course has hosted numerous college and professional championships over the years and is routinely cited as a Central Oregon highlight—thanks, in part, to fun water features, forested fairways, and scenic greens.
Caldera Links: The beginner-friendly Caldera Links course features nine holes that range from 60 to 185 yards in length—perfectly suited to families and those learning the game. Views include the surrounding forest and, from holes three and four, the snow-capped summit of Mount Bachelor.
If you have trouble deciding, enlist help from Sunriver’s two golf packages; the Resort Golf Package includes play on the Meadows and Woodlands courses, while the Unlimited Stay & Play Package includes play on all four courses. Keep reading for more on the specifics of each offering.
