Love this Course, Very Challenging but who doesn't like a challenge!?!

Always love playing this course!! The staff is always so friendly, from the pro shop to the cafe, beverage carts, restaurant and guest service. It's obvious they get treated well here! The greens tend to be fast in comparison to other courses but are in amazing condition. Bring lots of balls, If you have a hook you may loose many!! Always in pristine shape, Great job golf maintenance staff!!

Amazing Golf

This is my favorite golf course I have played! The golf course conditions are pristine, and the surroundings make it very special. You cross the Deschutes River on over half the holes with a backdrop of Mount Bachelor and Pulina Peak. The beauty of this course is spectacular, and the golf course design is as good as you will find. Dont be surprised to see wildlife around the course during your round!

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!
