The Sunriver Resort in Central Oregon is undeniably one of the most favored golf vacation destinations in the country. Thanks to its beautiful mountainscapes, excellent amenities, and superb championship courses, it has been ranking high in the world’s top golf courses. All its three courses bear the names of legends as designers. It is quite hard to determine which one stands out as the best; each course has its own merits that are incomparable to that of the others. One thing is for sure: all three are beautiful, fun, challenging, and very unforgettable. And one can tell the story: the Robert Trent Jones-designed Woodlands Course.
Stretching good 6,880 yards from the longest tees, the 18-hole, par-72 course stands in the middle of huge pines, rock outcroppings, lakes and views of the majestic Mt Bachelor. As a Robert Trent Jones design, it is not surprising that the Woodlands Course features several deep bunkers that help define the attitude of this course. With a course as diverse and as dynamic as this, golfers will be obliged to use every club in the bag – and think extra wisely before picking! With a promise of a golf as good and as irresistible as that, it does not take a second-thought to make the golf trip out here.
The Woodlands Course is just one of the three courses at the Sunriver and it would sound like barely scratching surface to judge the quality of the facility on this basis alone. But what is pretty obvious here – as is proven by the countless tales of happy and unforgettable golf vacations here – is the fact that once this course is played, it is almost instinctive to take tee times of the other two. Enough said.
