Aspen Lakes - Sisters, OR
Aspen Lakes is one of the finer public courses in Oregon. Designed by William Overdorf, Aspen Lakes winds 7,302 yards through the Central Oregon Woods. The course's most notable feature, as evidenced in just about every photograph, is it's red cinder bunkers. It was explained to me that this was crushed lava rack. It was a little more dense than your typical bunker, but not that difficult to play out of.
Located in the quaint town of Sisters OR, the course has been featured on many "Best of" lists and is often regarded as a hidden gem in Central OR. I found the course to be a lot of fun and turned in a solid round of 76 with the highlight being a string of 3 birdies in a row. Yeah birdies!! 3 in a row!!
