Re: Rate The Central Oregon Courses For Me Post Rating (1 vote)


First,  have had the same problem with arthritic hands for several years now...   I've gotten TREMENDOUS results from taking weekly Enbrel injections, to the point where I feel like I can hold a club without too much trouble......  Now, if I could just get my back to cooperate so that my legs don't go numb........

I really like the ridge course at Eagle Crest, but am not a big fan of Aspen Lakes. For some reason that course just beings me to my knees. I am excited for the Glaze Meadow remodel to be wrapped up and see the results. With my arthritis in my hands now, it is a major task for me to get out, but I have promised myself that I will make at least a few rounds this year.

<strong>Brasada   </strong><span style="color: #008000;">easily my new favorite in Central Oregon</span>
<strong>Big Meadow (looking forward to June to play the remodeled Glaze Meadow)  <span style="color: #008000;">I LOVE Big Meadow, just sets up great for my game and fabulous views</span>
Widgi Creek <span style="color: #008000;">I love Widgi right behind how much I love big meadow.  My style of course</span>
Juniper  <span style="color: #008000;">This is the new Juniper, what a great job they did on this new course IMO</span>
Broken Top   <span style="color: #008000;">Probably played it 10 times, still a stupid 9th hole & 11th(yeah I know I don't like their sig. hole ) but the course itself has grown on me</span>
Bend CC  <span style="color: #008000;">Central Oregon version of Eugene CC.</span>
Aspen Lakes  <span style="color: #008000;">never been a huge fan of the red cinder.  And they've got a couple stupid holes</span>
Pronghorn-Nicklaus (in my opinion the toughest course in Oregon from the tips) 
Eagle Crest-Ridge course  <span style="color: #008000;">just a fun course to play</span>
Tetherow  <span style="color: #008000;">impossible to walk, which detracts for me.  4 miles on the course and 5 miles between green to next tees</span>
Awbrey Glen  </strong><span style="color: #008000;"><strong>I enjoy this course, how are they staying out of bankruptcy though?

</strong><span style="color: #000000;">after those top courses, I would probably go something like this

Crosswater
Sunriver Woodlands
Pronghorn-Fazio
Quail Run
Sunriver Meadows
Meadow Lakes
Eagle Crest
Crooked River
Kahneeta
Rivers Edge
Greens at Redmond
Eagle Crest Challenge course
Sunriver-Caldera
 Prineville CC
Desert Peaks
Mountain High
Lost Tracks---I seriously don't like this course  lol
Missing Links


I think I got them all?  Just ran through them off the top of my head so not sure if I missed one or not.

LOL. Paul has seen my swing, and has been very courteous at not laughing each time he sees it. I doubt that anyone here could top me for worst swing of the past two decades.
