Thoughts on course conditions in Bend/SR/Pronghorn in Mid May (15-25)?


Yup. Just about optimal timing.

You now have me rethinking our late Sept / early Oct timing for this year... Things still hold up well (weather permitting) early Fall?

You should have decent weather.

We go to Bend during the first week of October (elbow season).  The courses are still in terrific shape.  The only thing you will have to worry about is frost delays in the morning.  The highs will be in the mid-80's or higher, but the lows get into the high 20's/low 30's.  It's always a shock to see frost on the windshield when you're used to lows being in the 60's on the other side of the mountains.

That's interesting - hadn't thoguht of that and appreciate the heads up. We have 36 hole days at Tetherow and Pronghorn at 830 and 855 am, so hopeful we're able to still make those work, but may be a craps shoot.

This year we are experiencing a “delayed” seasonal pattern. If it continues at all in the same manner, frost will not likely be an issue.

The weather turns every year at Halloween. I would try to get on Bend Golf CLub (best course in Bend) besides Fazio. I lived there for 25 years but finally had to get outta there.

We have 12 guys, tried getting onto Bend GC but weren't able. 4/12 are members at private courses, so may be able to spread the wealth, although I have heard great things about Faz (just will be the most expensive round of golf I've ever played)

Anyone know anything about the aerifaction schedules for Bend this year? Heading out in just over two weeks. We just punch at my home course outside of Seattle. This is the issue we run with the timing of your trip every year, so I know we're rolling the dice. We get into town on 9/29.

 

Juniper - I think they have the OR State Am (or another large OR event) the day after we play, so not worried there. 

Pronghorn - sounds like they're just punching fairways in late Sep / early Oct

Tetherow - ? 

Aspen Lakes - ?

Not sure about Bend, but the Portland area courses are punching right now. My guess would be before October they'll be punched.

Who has punched already in Portland?

 

Was told Columbia was going to punch after the LPGA event, Summerfield and King City have punched.

Sounds like a great trip, and you definitely hit the highlights of the Bend area courses (with the possible exception of the Sunriver courses).

 

Black Butte does not get the love it should, especially Glaze, since the renovation has grown in.  Hopefully, they'll do the same for the Big Meadow course, which will make BBR a premier golf trip target.

 

My feelings about Tetherow are pretty much in line with yours.  If you miss off the tee, you're dead.  Our last trip over, we agreed that it would be ok to play as the first round of the trip, just so everything after would look that much better.
