Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel, Scores A ‘Perfect Round’ with Reconstructed Bentgrass Greens

Sunriver, Ore. – Jan. 20, 2015 – Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel and home to four distinctive golf courses, announces a $425,000 investment to reconstruct the greens for its award-winning Meadows Golf Course. Slated for a mid-April completion date and to reopen on May 22, Meadows will feature new T-1 bentgrass greens for a pristine putting surface, which is the same turf used on Meadows’ sister courses – Woodlands Golf Course and the Top 100, championship Crosswater Golf Course.

“Sunriver Resort put tremendous care into the Meadows greens reconstruction with the goal of providing members and guests of all skill levels access to a premier golf experience,” said Josh Willis, director of golf operations for Sunriver Resort. “Come spring this year, Sunriver Resort will be one of the only resorts in the U.S. to offer multiple courses featuring bentgrass greens, furthering its strong reputation as a superior golf destination.”

Scheduled to reopen in time for golf season, the reconstruction project included removing the existing turf and soil for each of the 18 regulation greens, the practice putting and chipping greens, and the approaches. The greens and a portion of the approaches will be resodded with USGA recommended T-1 bentgrass and the intercut will be replaced with Kentucky bluegrass.

“We take golf seriously at Sunriver Resort and whether a first time golfer or a returning professional, we aim to deliver a world-class experience to everyone who plays our courses,” said Tom O’Shea, managing director of Sunriver Resort. “With the reopening of Meadows Golf Course in May, guests will now have access to four unique courses featuring immaculate bentgrass greens or pennlinks bentgrass.”

Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel, is the largest golf destination in Central Oregon and has been the hosting site for numerous USGA, PGA Tour, PGA of America, AJGA, and NCAA tournaments. To learn more about Sunriver Resort and its outstanding golf offerings, please visit
