Tetherow is completely unlike anything else in Central Oregon. Designed by world-renowned architect, David McLay Kidd, Tetherow’s links design is flat out hard. Locals call it Death Row. In fact, one of our writers, a scratch golfer, made five birdies and eagle the first time he played the track on his way to a smooth 77.
The point is, if you’re looking for a relaxing, enjoyable round of golf where you have a chance of shooting a good score, Tetherow shouldn’t be on your list. However, if you’re looking for a genuinely unique experience, and don’t mind the occasional tough break, Tetherow will give you everything you can handle and much more.
Aside from the golf course, Tetherow’s amenities are to die for. The new hotel and lodges are top-shelf and afford breathtaking views of those spectacular mountains we keep talking about.
The on-property dining options are killer.
The Row Pub is a great choice for a post-round pint and you won’t want to miss out on the award-winning Bleu Diamond Burger.
If a more formal setting and a wine list rivaling that of the best restaurants in Napa is more your flavor, Solomon’s is out of this world. Remember our writer that shot 77 his first go around Tetherow? That same idiot lost at credit card roulette at Solomon’s recently and is still paying the tab. He insists it was worth every penny though.
If you’re wanting to venture off-property, Tetherow offers complimentary shuttles for resort guests to the countless restaurants and beer taps that make up Downtown Bend.
It’s up to you whether you play the golf course or not. With that said, we recommend you do for the experience alone. Oh yeah, take a caddie. Forget about score.
However, if you choose not to play this links in the high desert, the other amenities are more than worth the price of admission.
