Top Golf Courses in Bend, Oregon
With more than 10 courses in Central Oregon that have been named Best New Resort Course in America the year they were built and 2 courses on the current top 100 list, you will have no trouble challenging yourself on the links while you are here.
Named #71 of the top courses in America by Golf Digest, this course is a must play on the bucketlist. A decade after David McLay Kidd established his architectural reputation with the original Bandon Dunes course, he returned to Oregon, settled in Bend and built another dazzling course, Tetherow. Far different than Bandon, with a manufactured landscape of lumps and bumps, far more bunkers, plus a couple of lakes, it nonetheless has the same fescue as at Bandon, so tee shots get plenty of roll and some approach shots can be bounced into flagsticks.
Named one of the Best New Resort Courses in America when it was built, this course is both fun and challenging. At just under 7,000 yards from the back tees and 5,000 from the forward tee boxes, Widgi offers a unique and fair challenge to all golfers. What the course might lack in yardage, it makes up for with tight, tree-lined fairways and large, undulating greens. The 653-yard third hole is one of the longest Par 5s in the country and the 216-yard 11th hole is all the Par 3 you can handle. Widgi Creek also features an expansive practice facility that includes two practice putting greens, a bunker area and natural grass driving range. Golf professionals also are on staff to provide a variety of lesson options to fit everyone’s budget.
