Drink For a Cause!

Helping the Wildfire Relief One Beer At a Time by Yoko Minoura Like many Bendites, patrons of The Row are beer aficionados. But when a keg runs out less than 48 hours after being tapped? It’s more than just good beer. That something more is the pub’s ongoing “Drink for a Cause” initiative, according to Tetherow Front of House Manager, Brian Garza. Beginning in September, he approached local breweries to see if they would be willing to donate a keg or two to raise money for wildfire recovery efforts in Oregon – specifically, non‑profits that help those displaced from their homes and support firefighters and first responders. Because the beer is donated, 100 percent of the sales go directly to… Read More

If you want to hold your party at the clubhouse or in the Event Pavilion this winter you’ll have to be flexible, and think creatively. Although the property can hold a total of five small parties – or one large party and two to three smaller ones – every Friday and Saturday in December is booked, DiTullio said.

Your dream is closer than you think at Tetherow!

2017 seemed like the distant future to Bend’s Tim Williams and his family. When they planned out their future, it looked like 2017 was the year they could fulfill their desire of living in Tetherow, a growing community on Bend’s Westside. Patiently waiting, they spent three seasons as guests of the Tetherow Golf Club, enjoying the Scottish links style golf, outstanding dining and a variety of social and family events. As the young family grew, so did their eagerness to live in such a convenient, growing area. In 2011, the Williams family learned about Tetherow’s Jr. Executive Membership, which is available to those under 46 and includes a family membership to the Athletic Club of Bend for just $390 a… Read More

Member’s in the News: Chris and Jeremy Cox of 10 Barrel!

10 Barrel has quickly become a beloved Bend trademark, and Tetherow is delighted to be the golf club home of its business partners, Chris and Jeremy Cox. The brothers were recently featured in Cascade Business News to share about their revolutionary business practices.

Tetherow’s Members Shine

Did you make it to Cat Call Production’s  “Chicago” in September? If so, you saw one of our very own members, Erin Felder, dancing her heart out as the Hungarian character, Hunyak. Felder started ballet when she was in the 2nd grade. Her part in Chicago was actually the first time she has danced since high school. Erin’s motivation to audition is inspiring. “I try to do something that scares me every year. Last year I tried out for ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ but did not get cast. The audition process was more anxiety producing than I had anticipated.” Yet Felder is not one to be defeated. When she heard that this year’s production was “Chicago”, one of her favorite… Read More
