Crosswater is a heathland-style 7,683-yard golf course, which crosses the Little Deschutes River seven times. Five tees on each hole, however, helps balance the risks against the rewards.

Built in a wild mountain meadowland, this Bob Cupp design is situated in a perfect setting for a golf course-a rare combination of river, marsh and mountains-all located 4,100 feet above sea level. That high altitude (which makes the ball go farther) is helpful on holes such as the 480-yard 11th, the longest par 4 on the course.
