As previous members to a nearby golf club, I cannot tell how vastly different the two clubs are. We truly feel like our family just grew, as every person at the club has made us feel welcome and like we are part of a family. I know we have only been members for 2 weeks now, but I feel like joining Tetherow is the best choice we could have made when it comes to being a club member in Bend, and that is ultimately a testament to the great people and culture that IS Tetherow!

TETHEROW GOLF CLUB AMENDED MEMBERSHIP PLAN
TETHEROW GOLF CLUB MEMBERSHIP PLAN TETHEROW GOLF COURSE, LLC, an Oregon limited liability company (the “Club”), is the owner of an eighteen-hole championship golf course and practice facilities (the “Golf Course”), a clubhouse, pro shop and dining facilities (collectively with the Golf Course, the “Club Facilities”). The Club Facilities are part of an exclusive residential development and resort project that multiple developers have or will construct in Bend, Oregon (the “Community”). The residential portion of the Community is currently planned to include two hundred sixty (260) single family residences (the “Single Family Property”), one hundred nineteen (119) Crescent Lots (the “Crescent Lots”), two hundred ten (210) townhomes (the “Townhomes”), and approximately ninety (90) lodge homes and lodge cabins to be developed and operated as overnight lodging units available to the public (the “Rental Units”). A separate developer unrelated to the Club also plans to develop a resort hotel in the Community (the "Hotel") which will also be available to the public. The Single Family Property, the Crescent Lots, the Rental Units and Townhomes are referred to collectively as the “Property”. The Golf Course was designed by David McLay Kidd and opened for play in July, 2008.

Transfer in the Event of Death of a Member. In the event of the death of a member, the Golf Membership may be transferred through the Club as provided herein. The spouse of a deceased member (or previously designated spousal equivalent) may succeed to the membership without going through the application process and without payment of a new Membership Deposit. The surviving spouse shall be entitled to succeed to the membership by acknowledging to the Club (on a form provided by the Club) that the survivor desires and intends to retain the membership and agrees to be bound by the Club Rules and Regulations and this Membership Plan. A deceased member’s Golf Membership may be transferred to the son or daughter of a deceased member (“Generational Transfer”). A Generational Transfer shall occur on the same terms as a transfer during the lifetime of a member, with the exception that a Generational Transfer may be made without regard to any Resale List or payment of a Membership Deposit. The son or daughter of a deceased member who wishes to have the membership transferred to them may do so after approval of his or her membership application and payment of the Transfer Fee in effect at the time of the Generational Transfer. A Generational Transfer may be made without regard to the transferee's acquisition or ownership of Property within the Community provided, however, any such Generational Transfer shall not relieve the successor (or survivor) Property owner from the ongoing obligation to maintain a Social/Athletic Membership for the Property. The Membership Deposit paid by the deceased member will, in the case of a Generational Transfer, be refunded to the designated son or daughter thirty (30) years after the Generational Transfer. Priority of Transfer. Until December 31, 2013, the Club shall maintain four transfer lists for the resale of memberships (the "Resale Lists"). The first list shall be a Resale List of Resident Golf Members who were issued their membership at the time of their closing of Single Family Property who wish to resign their Golf Membership and transfer the membership to the next transferee on the waiting list or otherwise ("First Resale List"). The second list shall be Resident Golf Members who purchased and own other than Single Family Property in the Community who wish to resign their Golf Membership and transfer the membership to the next transferee on the waiting list or otherwise ("Second Resale List"). The third list shall be a Resale List of Non-Resident Golf Members who wish to resign their Golf Membership and transfer the membership to the next transferee on the waiting list or otherwise ("Third Resale List"). The fourth list shall be a Resale List of Business Golf Members who wish to resign their Business Membership and transfer the membership to the next applicant for Business Golf Membership Plan for Tetherow Golf Club
Membership ("Fourth Resale List"). During the period prior to December 31, 2013, each Resident Golf Member on the First Resale List who wishes to resign his or her Resident Golf Membership shall have priority over any Resident Golf Member on the Second Resale List, and any Non-Resident Golf Member on the Third Resale List in the transfer of the membership to an applicant for Golf Membership, and each Resident Golf Member on the Second Resale List who wishes to resign his or her Resident Golf Membership shall have priority over any Non-Resident Golf Member on the Third Resale List in the transfer of the membership to an applicant for Golf Membership. Business Golf Membership on the Fourth Resale List will be transferred to applicants for Business Golf Membership only. After January 1, 2014, only one Resale List shall be maintained for Golf Members who wish to resign and have their membership reissued, with the exception of Business Golf Members, for which there will be a separate Resale List. The priority for re-issuance or transfer shall be on a “first come, first serve” basis without regard to Resident or Non-Resident status. Transfer or issuance of memberships shall be made to Property owners who are Social/Athletic Members who wish to become Resident Golf Members before any transfer or issuance to applicants for Non-Resident Golf Memberships. The ratio of new sales by the Club to the re-issuance of resigned memberships shall be determined by the size of the First Resale List. If the First Resale List is less than 20, new membership sales may be made on a ratio of 1:1 with resigned and reissued memberships on the First Resale List (one new sale alternating with each resigned and reissued membership from the First Resale List). If the First Resale List is between 20 and 40 the ratio shall be 2:1 (two resigned and resissued alternating with one new sale). If the First Resale List is greater than 40, no new or outside sales of memberships shall be made by the Club until the First Resale List is 40 or fewer, all such sales to be made from the First Resale List. At any time that there are no resigned memberships on the First Resale List, or after January 1, 2014, every fourth membership issued by the Club will be a resigned membership from the Second or Third Resale List. Notwithstanding the above, all applicants for Business Golf Memberships shall be reissued a resigned Business Golf Membership or issued a new Business Golf Membership.

The 7,298-yard links-style course features imaginative routing lined by fescue grasses flowing magnificently with the natural terrain. Tetherow offers a diverse mix of holes framed by ragged bunkers, knobs and knolls, and is surrounded by panoramic views of Oregon’s high desert and Central Cascade Mountains.
Built at an elevation of nearly 4000 feet and located only seven minutes from downtown Bend, the golf course at Tetherow is open from April to November.
