Score a Hole in One with Crosswater Golf Course Properties

When Scott and I first moved to Sunriver, joining Crosswater as members was really important to us. Scott played golf all over the world and Crosswater still ranks as one of his favorite courses. Crosswater Club continually comes in as one of the top-rated courses in the state of Oregon and for many golfers, one of the best courses in the world.

This beautiful, gated community centers on the community itself. As you cross through the gate at Crosswater, you’ll immediately notice the stunning mountain views and the peaceful meadows, which change color daily based on the way the light hits the area. The meadows shine a vibrant, fiery red in the fall. The Deschutes and Little Deschutes River meander through the Crosswater campus, providing a challenging water hazard for golfers and a serene ambiance for all visitors.

A Social Community

The people truly make Crosswater an incredible community. As a member of Crosswater, you benefit from a variety of social events. There’s always something going on at the Club throughout the year. Even if you’re not into golf, being a social member at Crosswater offers many advantages to residents in Three Rivers South. Events include wine tastings, golf events, PGA events and family activities for Christmas and Easter. Crosswater offers something for everyone.

The Crosswater community includes a number of second homeowners, many of which live reasonably close — Portland, Seattle or San Francisco. Even in the winter, on the weekends, Crosswater features a lot of activity and people around. As you get to know your neighbors, you’ll meet a variety of accomplished, unpretentious people who are very interesting. Homeowners and members at Crosswater meet friends new and old and benefit from an active lifestyle.
