SUNRIVER, Ore., 24, 2007 - Sunriver Resort, which in August hosts one of golf's major championships, continues to be held in the highest regard by the nation's leading golf course analysts:
1. Golf Digest. In its May issue, Golf Digest placed Sunriver Resort's Crosswater Course No. 32 in its ranking of "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf COurses, 2007-08." It is the fifth consecutive time Crosswater has earned the bi-annual recognition.
2. Golf for Women. In its May/June issue, Golf for Women ranked Sunriver Resort as one of "The 25 Best Family Golf Resorts." In its overview, Golf for Women wrote, "The wild Northwest presents its tamer side, with three courses and amazing kids' programs, but there's plenty of outdoor adventure for Type A families."
3. Golfweek. In its March 10 issue, Golfweek placed Crosswater No. 69 in its ranking of "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 2007. It is the third consecutive year that Crosswater has made the "Modern" list, symbolic of courses opened since 1960.
