There's little doubt in my mind Bend is one of the best summer locations in all of America. The centrally located Oregon has warm days and cool nights and the clarity of the sky come to life in a big time way when the stars illuminate at night. There's a range of outdoor activities with golf part of the offerings. Aspen Lakes is a fine choice for those wanting to get some golf in without spending a fortune to do so.
There's nothing compelling that really stands apart in a meaningful way. The outward half is fairly ordinary, however, the inward half really picks up the pace with a much greater variety of holes and a better routing provided. From the 14th hole to the concluding 18th -- be sure to have your game ready. The ending clearly provides a worthy climax.
