Looking for some courses to play in Bend, Oregon this summer.  I will be heading to Bandon but before we go there my group and I wanted to fit in 3/4 rounds in Bend.  I have heard Pronghorn and Tetherow are great. Are there any others in the area I should consider.  Any thoughts or recommendations are appreciated.

I see you've got Pronghorn and Tetherow covered, but you should add Brasada and Crosswater to the list too.

It was a good year for me playing golf last year.  Played a lot of nice courses and I will say that Tetherow was one of my favorite courses.  I guess cause it's the little brother of Bandon it doesn't get as much press but I was really impressed and am still kicking myself for not playing another round.  We stayed at Crossriver and the courses around there were enjoyable as well.

Top 5 from last year:
1. Sea Side at Sea Island
2. Ocean Forest
3. Tetherow
4. Harbor Town
5. Secession

Bend golf all depends on your pocketbook.

Tetherow is absolutely amazing. I got on the private side (Fazio) as well as the Nicklaus course last year and you will love either. Juniper is a good add for it's value.  Fun course and you'll hit every club in the bag. Aspen Lakes is a fun course too. Pronghorn is nice but combining it with Tetherow and you're looking at $550 or so in greens fees.

If you want a real fun course play Tok a tee on the way to Bandon from Bend

My folks live on Aspen Lakes so I've played it a number of times.  Very cool track.  Challenging, but very playable.  Usually in great condition.  Stay out of the traps.  They use crushed lava rock from the local volcanoes and it eats the crap out of the finish of your clubs.  As a side note, if you push slice it off of #6 tee, I'll likely end up with that ball as my Dad doesn't golf and sends me boxes of balls from his yard :)

I played Aspen, Juniper and Brasada on a trip there Fall 2011. Brasada was the best of the bunch, and I liked Juniper better than Aspen.

We just got back 2 weeks ago.  We did 1 day in Seattle (36 at Chambers), then 3 days at Bend.  Both Courses at Pronghorn, Crosswater, Brasada and Tetherow.

My Rankings:

Tetherow (Killer Experience)
Pronghorn Fazio (Pinnacle of Private Courses)
Brasada Ranch (Great Layout- never expected that from Jake)
Chambers Bay (Fun overall)
Pronghorn Nicklaus (Solid track, lots of Beauty, a better Nicklaus track)

Crosswater- I have no reason to go back- Too expensive, very little service, no yardage books/caddies/GPS.
