FAQs about Tetherow golf

David McLay Kidd. He also designed Bandon Dunes, Nanea Golf Club, Huntsman Springs, Gamble Sands, St. Andrews Links (Castle Course), Machrihanish Dunes and more.

No. 63 of “Best Courses you can Play” for 2017-2018.

A mixture of fine fescue and Colonial Bentgrass. Fine fescue includes Chewings fescue and Creeping Red fescue. Only a dozen or so clubs in the U.S. have such a unique grass mixture. Our bunker sand is from the coastal town of Florence, Oregon, not shipped in from Utah or Idaho.

Our snack shack is located between holes 9 and 10 and offers a delicious variety of fresh items and adult beverages. Tetherow does not have a beverage cart, but drinks can be ordered at the snack shack or delivered on course. Per OLCC rules, golfers cannot bring their own alcohol to the golf course.

The general timeline for course availability is April 1 to Nov. 1. When we close in November, we perform scheduled maintenance including a heavy topdressing and spraying fungicides. These practices allow for consistent playing conditions during the playing season as well as protect against vulnerability during the cold months. The amount of this sand topdressing disallows play in the early spring which additionally gives the fescue grasses a longer time of recuperation from the traffic and play the previous season. Unlike other courses in the area that may open earlier than us, we have a more consistent playing condition for the months we are open.

Caddies are required as course hosts and ambassadors to all non-member play at Tetherow. They provide insight into the challenges of playing the course (which often requires a totally different approach than people are generally accustomed to). Also, caddies are an integral part of maintaining an enjoyable experience for everyone on the golf course (even outside of their own assigned group). They do this by raking bunkers, fixing ball marks, replacing divots, maintaining the pace of play on the course and protecting the overall integrity of the condition of the golf course. In a way, the caddies are the protectors of the assets we have in our golf course.

With influences of David McLay Kidd and his usage of naturally rolling terrain, a genuine Scottish links-style course is very uncommon in the U.S., let alone in the high desert with Cascade views. All of these factors, with the addition of the fescue grass mixture, lead to a facility that is truly unlike any other. Playing links-style golf is traditionally done near seaside locations, but Kidd was able to have a vision that reminded him of a childhood dreamland. Most other courses in the area use either a Creeping Bentgrass or Kentucky Bluegrass grass mixture – which allows for softer playing conditions. With fescue, the grass doesn’t require as much water or fertilizer and can withstand a playing condition which is very firm and fast (ideal for links-style play).

It all depends. We have different rates for guests of our members, resort guests or locals (977xx zip codes). Tetherow is a private resort, but we do allow limited access to the general public based on availability. Green fees range from $90 to $175.

GolfBoards. They are essentially an electrically powered 4WD skateboard. They are speed controlled with a throttle accelerator which will also be the braking function when released. They go from 7-14 mph and are maneuvered similarly to a skateboard or snowboard (all about body weight). We were the FIRST facility to have a fleet of boards, and we still have the LARGEST fleet in the world. They are available with a $20 upcharge to your green fee. Anyone heavier than 85 pounds can ride them, although parental permission is required for minors.
