The categories above don't reflect my disappointment in this course. Although very scenic, it was WAY to tricked-up in my opinion. Too many small hidden waste areas spread throughout many fairways caused good shots to be bad. Unfairly sloped greens and other strange / odd / unique hole layouts just made it way too difficult to enjoy the round. Imagination and forcing one to be creative with shots is one thing, but this course pushes it too far in my opinion. Tetherow just tries too hard to be a challenging Scottish Heathland course. I LOVE Bandon Dunes & Pacific Dunes because they are a bit more subtle - Tetherow is simply an 'in-your-face' links course (very few trees - they all burned about 10 years ago). Just not enough of the 'fun' factor I like to see in a course (although I did like the par 3's), and it doesn't match the other 2 in playability. Clubhouse is great, service was top notch, forecaddy was friendly & knowledgeable, and the course conditon was very good considering it's age. I just can't recommmend it for not only good players, but especially 18+ hdcp players. (I'm a 6 hdcp)

What an awesome track! It's not for new golfers, but if you are keen and love to see a genious in Kidd play with your mind for 18 holes, I'd recommend it. Carts are a plus. Walking is for the super fit as there is some terrain and distance between tee and green. This course is like visiting Scotland in Central Oregon. The staff was awesome and my group loved the forecaddie (Ryan??).

Go play it and bring your imagination with your shotmaking.

Magnificent Heathland Course design by David Kidd with panoramic views of the Cascades. At $175 it is an expensive round but worth it for the experience. You can probably count the number of fescue based inland courses in the US on one hand so if you want an "authentic" round then tee it up at Tetherow. There are many dramatic holes and the green complexes are fascinating. If you play during the summer think seriously about getting a cart - all in it is about an 8 mile walk and some of the green to tee transfers are a hike. Kidd designed another gem with Tetherow. He, along with Doak and Crenshaw/Coore are bringing the game back to its roots, and putting Oregon at the top of the list for golf destinations.
