One of the most spectacular shots in Westchester golf history was actually struck at Sunriver. It was a 95-yard wedge that Rob Labritz, GlenArbor’s Director of Golf, holed out in 2013 during a playoff to earn a spot in the PGA Championship that year. The shot went viral on ESPN and marked the spot, the eleventh hole on the Crosswater Course at Sunriver, as a must-try for thousands of golfers.

For some extra family fun, Sunriver offers Caldera Links, a nine-hole course expressly designed to introduce your kids to the game—or to hone your short-game skills. Holes from 60 to 185 yards feature bent grass greens and bluegrass tees and are kept in pristine condition.
Sunriver Resort began as a second-home community, so you can choose from a variety of accommodation options including single-home vacation rentals, condos, and the hotel-style Sunriver Lodge. Nearby Sunriver Village offers a double handful of restaurants to complement the five excellent dining choices offered at the resort itself.
Non-golf activities at Sunriver are practically limitless. Topping the list has to be float trips of several kinds—canoe, kayak, rafts, tubes, individual or group—leaving from the Marina on the picture-perfect Deschutes River. Biking is another great way to experience the beauty along 35 miles of paved bike paths, or for the more adventuresome, on the rugged forest service roads nearby. Guides are available for volcano tours, rock climbing, fly fishing, and many other outdoor adventures.
