Welcome Our New Members! Alan Krane and Melanie Ditton

Each month we plan on celebrating new members to the Tetherow community! New members Alan Krane and Melanie Ditton don’t live in Bend yet, but they can’t wait to further their adventures and move into their new Tetherow home in Summer 2019. Both new members are original Pacific-Northwesterners from Portland, but now spend their winters in warm La Quinta, California.   They both first visited Tetherow back in 2010 when they vacationed in Sunriver, drawn by the beautiful surroundings that Central Oregon has to offer, but especially by the unique architecture of the various mountain homes here in Bend. A few years later they visited Tetherow in 2014 and again in 2018 and realized how close Tetherow is to so… Read More

He worked his way up by training under top chefs in Memphis (his hometown) and other parts of the south, and then moved to the Oregon Coast in 2008 to continue to pursue his culinary dreams.

Tetherow’s Spring Job Fair

Preparing for the Busy Summer Season by Yoko Minoura   When everyone else starts dreaming about summer vacation, that’s when people in hospitality gear up for the peak season. Tetherow is looking to fill roughly 50 positions this spring, according to Human Resources Manager Kate Fritz, in preparation for the opening of the golf course and a busy summer season. That number does not include golf caddies, who are hired through local business High Desert Loopers; instead, the resort is looking to bring aboard additional restaurant staff, housekeepers, greenskeepers, and others. To that end, Tetherow will hold a job fair April 16th, 9 am – 1 pm, that will allow candidates to meet with department managers. Job seekers who cannot… Read More

Adding Massage into Your Healthy Lifestyle

Meet Our Massage Therapist Tim Monaco by Yoko Minoura Although he claims no expertise in psychological issues, Licensed Massage Therapist Tim Monaco said he often feels like a therapist in more ways than one. “It’s a sacred space, being in a massage room – people will tell you things they normally wouldn’t share with people,” he said. “(And) it’s a rare thing in this world, that you actually have someone’s undivided attention, let alone for an hour or an hour and half.” Yet perhaps the reason some people feel comfortable confiding in him is the wide range of skills he brings to the job. Monaco – who began accepting clients by appointment at Tetherow Sport in December – is also… Read More

Dine for a Cause

Monthly Giving Night to Give Back to Our Community by Yoko Minoura   Although Tetherow Restaurant Manager Daniel Withington has never had to rely on Ronald McDonald House Charities, it’s still had an impact on his life. When the daughter of a friend had to be rushed from Bend to Portland for a medical emergency, someone from the nonprofit met with the family almost as soon as they arrived at the hospital to offer a nearby place to stay, free of charge, and a supportive environment to help the entire family cope, he said. So when Food and Beverage Director Amanda Rose proposed a monthly “Giving Night” at Solomon’s, to raise money for worthwhile causes, Withington knew immediately who he… Read More

Golf Course Renovations Update

New Changes for the Upcoming Season by Chris Condon Every golf course must evolve to accommodate and challenge an extremely diverse player demographic. Tetherow is no exception.

We have a vast amount of experience to draw from in order to create a golf course that is enjoyable, yet challenging. Who makes the decisions on what… Read More

Coming Soon to Your Plate: Herbs Grown at Tetherow

Our New Herb Garden by Yoko Minoura By midsummer, diners at Tetherow may have the chance to sample dishes flavored with the freshest ingredients possible – herbs grown literally in the resort’s backyard. A roughly square-shaped raised bed, about 10 feet per side, has been built outside the Event Pavilion kitchen’s receiving door, on the south side of the building. Ringed with spray heads for watering and filled with soil intended for that use, the future herb garden occupies what was originally empty, leftover space. “The area seemed to fit, (with) the proximity to the kitchen,” Director of Agronomy Chris Condon said. “It was essentially a non‑usable space for anything but the herb garden.” The idea for the new garden originated… Read More

The Trailhead at Tetherow

Meet Our New Neighborhood by Yoko Minoura If you’ve ever wanted to chuck it all for a cabin in the woods so you can spend your days chasing powder or tearing up single track mountain bike trail, Tetherow might have a solution. Six vacation homes – located across Skyline Ranch Road, south of the clubhouse – are Tetherow’s newest addition. Part of a neighborhood dubbed the Trailhead, the homes are intentionally situated to give guests immediate access to the Phil’s Trail network and the national forest beyond. Upper‑story rooms and, in some homes, a second‑story deck boast views of Mt. Bachelor and other nearby peaks; each home also features an outdoor hot tub and patio with furniture. “You can jump… Read More

Brewery Months in The Row

by Yoko Minoura   For Justin Birtola, head chef at The Row, the closure of Tetherow’s golf course marks the beginning of the best time of year. It kicks off the start of featured breweries at The Row, where the restaurant devotes three taps to a selected brewery each month, and develops five new menu items roughly every week incorporating that brewery’s suds in the food. “It’s something we all look forward to,” Birtola said, explaining it allows his crew to reset after the hectic summer season and explore their creative side again. “It allows my cooks to experiment and think and practice. (And we) get motivated for the holiday season.” Now in its third year, some of the so‑called “Eat… Read More

Getting To Know the Tetherow Team

Please Welcome Our New Food and Beverage Director Amanda Rose by Yoko Minoura Once, many years ago, Tetherow Food and Beverage Director Amanda Rose worked as a dolphin and sea lion trainer at Magic Mountain in Santa Clarita, California, and was contemplating a career as a marine biologist. But when a position as a trainer at Sea Life Park in Hawaii fell through, she decided to return to restaurant hospitality – the industry she’d gotten her start in as a 15‑year‑old looking for her first real job. “I’m really passionate about the delivery of an experience at an establishment,” Rose said. “It really makes me happy when the energy in an establishment is lively and people are laughing and having a great… Read More
