Tetherow Golf Club Ranked No. 67 in Golf Digest’s Annual “100 Greatest Public Courses,” 2011-2012

Hole 17 of the David McLay Kidd course at Tetherow

From day one, our goal has been to create a truly unique golf course that not only makes for a memorable golf experience in Bend, but also would rival many of the notable golf courses throughout the country.

Located in Bend, Oregon, Tetherow Golf Club made its debut on Golf Digest’s annual “100 Greatest Public Courses” list for 2011-2012, ranked at number 67 ahead of notable courses such as Pelican Hill Golf Club, The Greenbrier and Trump National – Los Angeles.

Tetherow Golf Club’s award-winning David McLay Kidd 18-hole, 72-par golf course provides one of Central Oregon’s most exceptional golf experiences. The architect of Oregon’s Bandon Dunes and the Castle Course in Scotland, Kidd created Tetherow’s 7,298-yard course to feature imaginative routing lined by fescue grasses flowing magnificently with the natural terrain. Tetherow offers a diverse mix of holes framed by ragged bunkers, knobs and knolls and is surrounded by panoramic views of Oregon’s high desert and Central Cascade Mountains.

Golf Digest rankings are based on evaluations from more than 1,000 Golf Digest rating panelists who score courses on seven criteria including shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, conditioning and ambiance. The scores are averaged, totaled and then reviewed by accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers.

“From day one, our goal has been to create a truly unique and different golf course that not only makes for a memorable golf experience in Bend, but also one that would rival many of the notable golf courses throughout the country,” said Chris van Der Velde, Tetherow managing partner. “It is personally rewarding to see Tetherow jump into Golf Digest’s ranking that includes so many other well-regarded golf facilities.”

In addition to receiving numerous industry awards and accolades, Tetherow’s David McLay Kidd course is the first course in Oregon recognized as a Certified Audubon International Signature Sanctuary by Audubon International. The award reflects Tetherow’s pledge to integrate environmentally-sound philosophies and practices into nearly every aspect of course development and on-going agronomic practices.
