We mentioned Crosswater Club in our article about the Top Courses in Bend, Oregon (insert link) but it’s also one of the best courses in the state.
Located less than 15 miles south of Bend, Crosswater sits along the shores of the Little Deschutes River with views the Cascade Mountains to the west. In fact, the river crosses the course seven times and comes into play on a number of other holes.
Crosswater is the epitome of target golf. The straight-forward design makes it obvious where shots need to be placed. That doesn’t mean it’s easy though. In fact, quite the opposite.
Even though the fairways and landing areas are wide, errant shots almost guarantee a big number on the card.
The good news is that there’s six sets of tees to choose from so golfers of all abilities have a chance to score.
Playing Crosswater in the morning when steam comes off the Little Deschutes River is nothing short of magical. The same can be said for an evening round watching the sun set over the snow-covered peaks of the Cascade Mountains.
Whenever you choose to play Crosswater, we recommend bringing an extra sleeve of balls just in case.
