Amazing experience. The course and scenery are absolutely wonderful - a true Oregon golf experience. All staff from pro shop, beverage service, and starter were super friendly and accommodating. Tees for all skill levels, conditioning of tee boxes, fairways, range, and greens were lush and impeccable. I cannot recommend this course enough, one of the best in the USA you can play. Championship tees 7600+ yards. I will be back anytime I have a chance.

i'll start out keeping this simple: PLAY THIS COURSE!

It is worth the money, and it's awesome. It is very tough though! You're gonna want to bring either A) your best game off the tee or B) lots of extra balls. There are forced carries on several holes, tight driving lines, and rough/fescue that will bring you to tears.

The layout is fantastic though! Lots of variety and opportunities to hit all kinds of different shots both off the tee and on approach.

The 5th hole is one of the toughest I can remember playing anywhere, especially given the stiff headwind we were facing. The marshall even wished us luck as we were teeing off.

You are going to work hard during this round, but it's worth it. The views are amazing and the conditions are pristine. Just try to remember to have fun and soak in the scenery while you're searching for another ball in the rough!

I finally got my chance to play Crosswater this fall, and despite some odd and terrible weather still left very fond of this course. The setting alone had us feeling alone out in a meadow with views of the mountains. The course itself was gorgeous, fun and immaculately well maintained. Crosswater is fair, but the greens are fast. Fairways and greens are as true as it gets. I LOVE this course. I want to go back every year.

For background, we played five courses on our golf trip to Bend (Tetherow, Crosswater, Pronghorn, Brasada Ranch and Widgi Creek). I would recommend all of them, including Crosswater. This course is simply a beautiful layout that was a joy to play. It's a very good test and immaculately maintained from perfectly shaped tee boxes to greens that roll truer than true. The fairways are generous; this is definately a second shot course.

Caught an unbelievable weather day and while the course is long and challenging, it was hard to be frustrated with my own game due to the sheer beauty of the place. Links style, it has hosted multiple PGA of America championships. A gem in central oregon.

This spectacular course basically put Central Oregon on the golf map. The course has hosted many big events icluding a couple of CPCs and a "Shell's Wonderful World of Golf". Crosswater is regularly ranked among the best public-access courses in the country. Bob Cupp created a very challenging course that features water hazards on most of the holes.
