Spectacular views

When we checked in at the clubhouse, they said ‘thank you for playing with us’. The conditions were amazing, the sights beautiful, And the course was unique. While it was not easy, it played fair. Some of the tee boxes just left me in awe. I’ll definitely play crosswaater again.

Crosswater - A true Top 100 Golf Experience

From the friendly and welcoming staff at the gated entrance to the polite and smiling bartenders, Crosswater at Sunriver Resort is a true Top 100 golf experience. The course was tough for a 14 like me, but it is a fair test and well worth every penny!

Cody, Mark and the entire golf shop staff took great care of our small group. The greens and fairways were immaculate, we played #12 from the Tips - a 680+ yard Par 5, then spotted a Bald Eagle in its nest on a great Par 3!

To top it all off the young lad srubbing my hooks after the round told me to watch this 1999 made for TV, hosted by Crosswater (Daly vs. Couples) . What an epic day, I"ll definitely be back!

The absolute best in central Oregon. There are a lot of amazing places to play in Bend, but this one blows the rest away. The friendliness of the people in the Golf Shop and cart guys to the ladies at the turn was unreal. Oh, and the course is pretty special too. Loved it so much I got membership information from Cody, who couldn’t have been more accommodating. Overall just an awesome experience that I would highly recommend to everyone!

The best course in a golfers paradise

Every time I get the chance to play Crosswater I remember why it’s the best golf course in Bend. The course is incredibly fair, challenging, scenic, and perfectly maintained. It’s no surprise that the PGA tournament of champions was hosted there for a number of years. Beyond the immaculate course, the staff is just as friendly and accommodating. The experience as a whole is one of my favorites I will definitely be back!

Great Oregon Course

Unique and challenging with amazing views throughout. The folks at Crosswater really care about keep the course in great conditions no matter what time of year. The greens are quick, fairways tight and tough pins make for a fun challenge. Definitely a must play course if you visit the Bend/Sunriver area!

Top course in central Oregon

This was one of the best courses I’ve ever played. It was unique too. I liked the layout of the course and the way it challenged you to make the right decision. The tee boxes to the fairways to the greens were immaculate. Greens rolled very nicely. Loved rolling putts on every single hole. Don’t forget the views. The course is surrounded by mountains and central Oregon beauty! Crosswater golf course is my favorite course to play in central Oregon by far. Definitely will be coming back again and again!

6HR 12 MIN ROUND

A new PW (personal worst) for slow play. Waited every hole, at times behind 2 groups. Marshall said he told groups in front to pick up the pace, they did not. Greens in good shape, fairways ok. Very scenic-had plenty of time to admire the scenery.

Central Oregon Golf at it's Best

Crosswater is the quintessential Central Oregon golf course -- Snow capped mountains, pure bent grass greens, fairways with bluegrass rough and fescues -- all in perfect shape., pine trees, an awesome river running through it... such a perfect setting for a great day of golf we had! There are several forced carries over the Little Deschutes River, so highly recommend you play the "right" tees. Design of the course is great, allowing for some bump and run shots, with large green complexes. a MUST play!!

Crosswater

Crosswater course is fantastic. Very challenging, yet gettible course. Front 9; better warm up at their fantastic facility, because 1,2, and 3 are not impossible to birdie.
Be ready for 4,5, and 6, because a poor shot can immediately lead to a double..
The 8th is over water, the second shot better be crisp, and 9 is lined by a river that at times is magnetized. If you play the proper tees,, it is an exhilarating front 9.
The back 9 is as awesome, 10 is over Oregon gunk, and is similar to the 8th, but a much larger, but split level green. Be ready for 12, it is driver, 3 wood, 3 weed, (i am joking but it is long) and has a pond lining the left hand side of the very narror and the entire 600 yards.
13,14, 15, are gettible, and be ready for 16-18. The 16th is a 3 shot to the green par 5, and the elevated green, that slants all down hill after the false front is like keeping your wedge on a glass table. 17 is a long par 3, and 18 is an over the river par 4. The 18th is very narrow if you want your second to be shorter, and it's over a river to the green. The bunkers are always in great shape, the greens are very fair. If you play the course just prior or just after one of their many tournaments (call prior) the greens are quick, but very smooth. My only negative, is due to the large resort setting, and lots of holes where you need to cross water, and lots of hazard, the pace of play can be very very very slow. That in addition to lots playing the incorrect tees, although the views are epic, the pace of play can be frustrating, for the money spent to play and travel. Otherwise, very friendly staff, great practice area, and the weather is always cooperating.
