Opened in July of 2008 in the emerging mountain town of Bend, Tetherow Golf Club is one of the area's newest golf courses and the centerpiece of a residential community. Designed by Scottish golf course architect David McLay Kidd, Tetherow takes on some Scottish heathland qualities, as it is seeded wall-to-wall with fescue turf and winds through rugged bunkers, knobs and knolls. The golf course tumbles up and down high desert hillsides and the photogenic 17th hole plays to a green that sits within old pumice quarry walls. "I hate the term 'signature hole,' but I don't mind the term 'cover girl,'" Kidd said of the remarkable 17th, which features a green that's just 2,500 square feet.

In the spirit of the game's traditions, each foursome is given a forecaddie at Tetherow Golf Club to help them make their way around the layout, which is no easy-to-navigate resort course. Rather, the course is a trek through the high desert and requires skill and savvy.

    Wow!! Tetherow is simply stunning in it's layout. This is a true players course. On every hole you need to consider all conditions and choose the shot that YOU CAN make. This course requires intimate knowledge to play so if it is your first few times, don't worry about your score and always ask the forecaddie how the green should be approached based on the daily pin placement. Play here tends to stay on pace secondary to the forecaddies and since it is expensive it is not that crowded.

    Every hole is a treat to just stand on the tee box. The further back that you play, the better the view. The greens are wild and undulating and because this is a links course they play just a bit slower.

    Expensive to play but worth it. Last words of advice: play it now while there are still sparse houses on the course and STAY on the FAIRWAY!
