SUNRIVER, Oregon -- Sunriver Resort will open Meadows golf course for the season on Saturday, April 7.

Meadows features tremendous variety within its 18 holes, seven of which border the meandering Sunriver.  Acclaimed architect John Fought’s design pays tribute to the great American courses from the 1920s and 1930s with its aesthetic grace, while its dramatic use of directional and fore-bunkers serve up ample challenges for golfers of all skill levels. 

About Meadows golf course:

  • Yardage & Par:  7012 yards, par 71

  • Course Rating & Slope: 72.8 and 128

Sunriver Resort’s Woodlands golf course underwent a $1.5 million irrigation renovation in the fall 2006 and is scheduled to open on June 15.  This Robert Trent Jones Jr. design is set among dense forest of ponderosa and lodge pole pine. With its abundance of water and numerous outcroppings of lava rock, Woodlands places a premium on shot accuracy.
