David McLay Kidd-Designed Tetherow Golf Course to Open June 2008
BEND, Ore., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ — A 700-acre resort encompassing a luxury hotel/spa/restaurant, recreation center, conference center, David McLay Kidd-design golf course and 589 homes and townhomes is poised to offer the first luxury accommodations in Bend, central Oregon’s famed outdoor recreational playground. Tetherow will rise on the last of the city’s prized westside acreage, with sweeping views of the city and the Cascade Mountain.
Situated on a soaring lava ridge overlooking the golf course, Hotel Tetherow will offer 50 luxury rooms and suites in a main building that includes a full-service spa/wellness center and restaurant. The hotel can accommodate an additional 250 overnight guests in nearby lodge homes and cabins with more spacious rooms and private kitchens.
Global hospitality company Dolce International will manage the facility, with a goal of achieving a four-star rating. Arrowood, Tetherow’s development company, chose Dolce as its hotel partner because of its proven ability to deliver a luxury hotel resort and spa experience with a strong local character. Arrowood partner Don Bauhofer said, “Hotel Tetherow will be unlike anything else offered in Bend — a destination that will offer a unique experience for our guests and residents, as well as the community of Bend.” A conference center adjacent to the hotel, recreation center and golf clubhouse will offer flexible meeting space for groups as large as 300.
Living at Tetherow
Ownership opportunities include homesites, lodge homes, cabins, townhomes and custom homes. The first phase of homesites became available in July, 2007, and more than 80 sites have already been reserved, with an estimated value of $42 million. All homeowners will have access to the amenities at Hotel Tetherow, the Golf Club and Recreation Center.
Tetherow’s 18-hole private resort course, designed by famed Scottish golf architect David McLay Kidd, will open in June, 2008, with the clubhouse set for a fall, 2008 opening. Kidd recently completed the Castle Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. It is the first complete new course added to St. Andrews in the past 100 years, as well as the highly-regarded Bandon Dunes course on the coast of southern Oregon. Kidd recently purchased the first homesite at Tetherow and moved his world headquarters to Bend.
The private Tetherow Golf Club will offer both golf and social memberships for homeowners. Amenities planned for the 17,500-square-foot clubhouse include a pro shop, restaurant and lounge, meeting room and men’s and women’s locker rooms.
