Sunriver Resort Golf Season Opens with Full Tourney Schedule
Resort’s Diverse Portfolio of Courses to Open In April, May 2013
(Sunriver, Ore.) — After a mild winter and unseasonably warm spring in Central Oregon, Sunriver Resort will open each of its four courses in time for the Memorial Day Weekend, the Resort announced today. Course opening dates for 2013 begin with the prestigious Crosswater course on April 12, followed by the Resort’s signature Meadows and private 9-hole, par 3 Caldera Links courses on April 20, and the north-end Sunriver Woodlands course on May 24.
As one of the country's most scenic golf destinations, the Resort welcomes more golf tournaments than its Pacific Northwest colleagues on any given year. On the heels of a comprehensive greens renovation at Crosswater in 2011, this 2013 schedule is abundant with first class tournaments.
Sunriver Resort’s first major tournament of the season is the 46th Annual PGA Professional National Championship June 23 – 26 at Crosswater and Meadows, the third nationally televised tournament in the last decade. Spectators are welcome to come watch the 312 PGA pros as they compete in four rounds of tournament play.
Other pivotal tournaments of the season include:
The Ghost Tree Invitational on August 23 hosts 50 teams with celebrities, guests and a special dinner created by local renowned chefs.
The AJGA, scheduled for August 26 – 29 where the best junior golfers in the world will play the Meadows and Woodlands courses for the annual American Junior Golf Association’s Sunriver Junior Open.
The Pacific Northwest Golf Association Team Championships for men and women will be played September 16 – 20 on the Meadows and Woodlands courses.
