Bucket List 2019 - BEND, Oregon, is now open for sign-up!!
The Dragons' biannual road trip to one of the great golf destinations of the world will be Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21, 2019. Thursday the 18th will be pretty much a travel day unless you take one of the earlier flights on United. I am planning to take an early flight out of SFO. For those of us who arrive early on Thursday, I have set up an optional round of golf at Brasada Ranch (https://brasada.com/bend-oregon-golf/) one of the premier private courses along the way to Sunriver.
Crosswater (www.crosswater.com/golf) is a top 100 course and home to 2017 PGA National Championship. Sunriver is a fabulous golf resort, with lots of restaurants , a beautiful spa, and spectacular weather in the prime summer months. The High Desert has an incredible variety of golf courses off property -- Brasada Ranch, Tetherow, Aspen Lakes, Pronghorn, etc. And unlike places like Bandon Dunes, there are tons of things to do before and after golf, and plenty of activities for family and friends, too.
We will be staying at the Sunriver Resort (www.destinationhotels.com/sunriver-resort/). We have room for twelve Dragons on this trip, with 4 double occupancy rooms, and 4 singles.
The price is $299 per night double occupancy (subject to resort taxes and charges at approx. 26%) The cost per person for this trip is approximately $1165.00 per person which includes 3 nights in a shared room plus the 4 rounds of golf.
Airfare and/or ground transportation, food expenditures, and replay or bonus rounds of golf, are not included.
The current golf itinerary has been expanded to 4 rounds of Golf which will include skins game and a Chicago format for scoring

FLIGHTS AND GROUND TRANSPORTATION
The closest airport to Sunriver is Redmond, Oregon and there are approx 4 United Airline nonstops per day averaging $450-$500 round trip. My tentative plan is to fly into Redmond early in order to play a bonus round at Brasada Ranch. I will share my flights as soon as I book them, and if there are enough people following my plan I’ll make arrangements for a shuttle (pricing based on qty of people). Sunriver offers shuttle service at $75 for the first person and $ 25 thereafter between the Redmond airport and the resort. If there are 6 people then it’s $20 per person flat rate plus any tip.
