Sunriver Resort welcomes top young golfers for PGA Junior Series event

Some of the competitors in the PGA Junior Series might be small in stature. Others might be sporting a yet-to-be-shaven baby face. Make no mistake, though, some of the young golfers here at Sunriver Resort this week for the PGA of America junior tournament are among the most talented around. 

On Friday and Saturday, Crosswater Club will host the third event of the 2016 PGA Junior Series, a cross-country tour of events for boys and girls age 12 to 18. The Boys 15-18 champion and Girls Overall champion at Crosswater will earn a position in the 2016 PGA Junior Championship in August at Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, Rhode Island. 

In addition, the PGA Junior Series events are recognized within the United States Junior Ryder Cup Team points system. 

“The PGA Junior Series might not be a household name for golf fans, but these talented young golfers can play well here and use the tournament as a springboard for their budding careers,” said Josh Willis, director of golf at Sunriver Resort. “We are honored to host such high-caliber young players.”

Conditions update: Sunriver Resort ready for the peak golf season

For Ryan Wulff, Sunriver Resort’s director of agronomy, this time of year can be make or break. 

If all goes well, Caldera Links, Crosswater, Meadows and Woodlands will be in perfect condition to handle the busiest time of year, setting up a golf season that will have golfers smiling all summer long. Fall behind schedule, and it could mean a summer of scrambling for the maintenance staff at Sunriver. 

Let’s just say that grins are coming a bit easier than normal these days for Wulff. 

“The courses are phenomenal right now,” Wulff said. “The conditions have been good all year and they are only getting better. In fact, I don’t think they could be any better this time of year. They are as good as I’ve seen in June.”

Great golf at Sunriver Resort made even better by the opening of beer garden at the turn

Great beer, fantastic golf, beautiful weather and unlimited fun are a magical foursome. The frequency and quality of all four are sort of what made Central Oregon and Sunriver Resort so popular to begin with. 

Some even argue that beer and golf could even be the secret to a long life. … Who are we to argue? 

Most know about Sunriver Resort’s golf, weather and fun. But this Memorial Day Weekend, Sunriver Resort will also open the largest outdoor bar in Central Oregon. Named The Backyard, Sunriver Resort’s new outdoor bar offers 16 taps, 15 of which are devoted to locally made craft beer by breweries such as Cascade Lakes, Crux, Deschutes, Silver Moon and Worthy. (Coors Light, long a golfer’s favorite, rounds out the selection.) 

The Backyard sits on the backside of Sunriver’s Main Lodge, next to the Meadows Golf Course pro shop and perfectly situated at the turn. Yes, The Backyard beckons golfers in a way no clubhouse hot dog can match.

L to L drill a relatively easy way to sharpen swing skills

So many amateur golfers are afflicted with a similar swing flaw: We bend our elbow of our top hand (the left hand for right-handed golf swings), creating a “chicken wing” effect. 

And the worst part for many of us, is the destabilizing swing flaw affects our swings without us being any the wiser. 

Every golfer who is serious about improvement has at one time or another been overwhelmed with the sheer amount of golf advice available at just about every turn. But sometimes the path to a better golf swing is made through the most simplest of drills.
