Tetherow Golf Club in Bend, Oregon earns honors in Golf Digest

BEND, Ore. -- Tetherow Golf Club in Bend, Oregon has been honored with four respected golf rankings. Moving up the prestigious Golf Digest "Top 100 Greatest Public Courses" list to #66, this David McLay Kidd-designed course is on this list for the second year in a row. Tetherow was ahead of notables such as the Coeur d'Alene Resort, Wailea Golf Club and Pelican Hill Golf Club. Pebble Beach Golf Links topped the ranking and held its position as the #1 course for the third consecutive rating period. Within the same issue, Golf Digest also ranked Tetherow as one of the best courses in the state of Oregon.

Golf Digest rankings are based on evaluations from over 1000 Golf Digest rating panelists who score courses on seven criteria including shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, conditioning and ambiance. The scores are averaged, totaled and are reviewed by accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Golf Digest Travel Editors also placed Tetherow in their ranking of the "Top 40 U.S. Public Courses", and is one of only two Central Oregon courses on the list. In addition to the Golf Digest awards and accolades, Golfweek Magazine recently ranked Tetherow Golf Club #53 in their 2013 ranking of their Top 100 best residential courses in the country.

Tetherow's golf course opens for the 2013 season on March 30. 2013. The new Tetherow Golf Academy is currently open and available to anyone wanting to improve his or her skill and enjoyment of the game.

Located minutes from downtown Bend, Tetherow Golf Club boasts a visually striking par 72 layout that was designed by award winning architect David McLay Kidd. The routing takes full advantage of the stunning panoramic views of the Cascade peaks including Three Sisters and Broken Top as well as the rugged high desert terrain. In its short history, Tetherow has been honored by nearly every major golf publication. Upon opening, Tetherow was ranked #1 as the Best New Course You Can Play in The Country by Golf Magazine and has since then received numerous other "Best New" Rankings from Golf Digest, Links Magazine, Golfweek, T&L Golf and the Robb Report.
