What to Expect: Sunriver is a 63 hole facility featuring the championship Crosswater course, the resort Meadows and Woodlands courses, and the par three Caldera course. The RTJ Jr. designed Woodlands course sits on higher ground than the neighboring Meadows course and thus features more changes in elevation and more trees to contend with. The course has more interesting design elements than the Meadows course that at times will borderline on gimmicky with features like rock outcroppings and a tree in a bunker; can you say double hazard? The views aren't bad but pale in comparison to the grand Crosswater course. In the end, the Woodlands course is a higher risk, higher reward style of course while the Meadows is a more conventional layout.
