I live in Salem Oregon and get to Bend/Sisters regularly and I always love finding the time to play Aspen. It is by far one of the most beautiful courses in the northwest, great mountain holes and the beautiful red lava rock traps offset this courses beauty. I do not agree with Simon it is the most overated course in Oregon, it is a touch spendy but for what you are getting I think they are fair. I look for coupons to play there or specials and they have them. As far as the traps ruining clubs, how many traps are people hitting in to ruin there wedges? I have hit rocks in basic traps that are worse. If you have never played here, wait till late spring-fall and decide for yourself, I think you will be talking about it for years to come and most will really want to come back.
