Bend’s newest luxury resort logs 19 closings in one month
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Golf Architect David Mclay Kidd Purchases Tetherow’s First Homesite

BEND, Ore. – In late October, international golf course architect David McLay Kidd and his wife Jill closed on the sale of the first homesite at Tetherow, a new 700-acre golf resort community near Bend, Ore. They were quickly followed by 18 more buyers. The 19 lots have a combined value of close to $12 million.

Kidd, named “the hottest architect in golf ” by Golf World magazine, designed Tetherow’s private resort course. He recently completed “the No. 7” Castle Course at St. Andrews in Scotland, the first new course built there in nearly 100 years. Kidd’s courses include the celebrated Bandon Dunes on the Oregon coast, and others in Hawaii, California, England, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, Morocco, Canada, and a private island in Fiji.

The only contemporary golf-course architect whose work has been the subject of two books, Kidd can choose to live and work anywhere on the globe. In April he moved his company, DMK Golf Design, to Bend and is living there fulltime. His homesite, like many others at Tetherow, overlooks his course and has sweeping views of the city and the Cascade Mountains.

“My wife is an Oregonian and has deep ties here,” says Kidd. “Our choice of Bend was based mostly on where we would like to bring up our family. We are living a wonderful rural lifestyle here, with all types of outdoor sports right out the door and downtown Bend just a few minutes away. Tetherow has low density, great amenities and views and lots of open space.”

Since Kidd’s purchase, 18 more Tetherow homesite purchases have closed, with 65% of the buyers coming from Oregon and the balance from California, Washington and throughout the country. More than 80 sites have been reserved, with an estimated value of $42 million.

Ownership opportunities include homesites, lodge homes, cabins, townhomes and custom homes.

In the past 10 years, Bend, Ore. has become the most sought-after home and vacation spot in the Pacific Northwest. Situated on a high plateau 160 miles east of Portland, Bend has an irresistible combination of 300 days of sunshine a year, superb outdoor sports and sophisticated city amenities. Located in Oregon’s high desert a few minutes from downtown Bend, Tetherow’s 700 acres will also encompass a golf academy and clubhouse, luxury hotel, spa and wellness center, recreation center and conference center. Tetherow’s hotel guests and owners of the 589 homesites and townhomes will have access to all amenities. The golf course is scheduled to open in June, 2008, and the clubhouse will be complete in the fall of 2008.
