Sunriver, Oregon, USA
Design Style: Parkland Course Type: Resort Residential
Setting: Desert

The Woodlands Golf Course at Sunriver Resort offers a serene trek through ponderosa pines in the fragrant air of sunny Central Oregon. The Woodlands helped propel this resort and residential community-and all of Central Oregon-- into a nationally renowned golf destination. The entire property is set amid high desert meadows and forests. Trout streams wind through the site, and a number of Cascade Mountain peaks are visible on the western horizon.

Knowing that resort golfers were among Sunriver's target audience, Robert Trent Jones II focused on strategic challenges, such as sharp doglegs and elevated greens rather than emphasizing length in our design. Playing 6,880 yards from the back tees (at an elevation of 4,500 feet), the Woodlands creates challenge through narrow fairways, sparkling lakes, and carefully placed bunkers. Tight chipping areas around the greens add to the shot-making requirements. The layout also encompasses old-growth trees (occasionally interloping onto a fairway, but typically sheltering surrounding homes from errant shots), volcanic rock outcroppings, and other elements of the natural environment that were preserved during design and construction.
