Emerald Woods Golf Course

Hole #9 – Par 3, 130 Yards

Emerald Woods Golf Course (or as the entrance sign read, “merald wood“) is a 45-hole golf facility with five nines. The Pine Valley & St. Andrews courses are grouped together and are the most challenging. Both are tree-lined and have numerous creeks to navigate. A perfect combo for the experienced player. The Audrey’s & Heatherstone nines combine for a less demanding eighteen. This layout still offers a challenge with tree-lined fairways, bunkers, and water hazards, including the “island hole” on #16. Today, I played  Read more →

Sinclair GC Entrance

The Gateway to the course – more inviting the second time around!

“Sinclair Oil Co., no trespassing”. This sign greeted me on my first visit to the course along with a locked gate and armed guards. Okay so the armed guards may be stretching the truth, but it was not very inviting. I thought it best not to jump the fence and explore – I’ll wait for another day. Read more →

The Frontier Roadhouse and Golf Club

The power of advertising led me to this unique executive 9-hole course. I have not included many executive 9’s, but I was intrigued by their website. The restaurant and golf course at this “resort” was built by PGA Pro, Peter LeDonne and is now part of the Frontier family restaurants based in Seattle. Read more →

Jaycee Memorial #1

Train running down the left side of Hole #1

Gun shots greeted us as we pulled into the parking lot. No screams; no blood; no problem – let’s play some golf! Incoming…the train came out of nowhere and buzzed by as I addressed my first shot of the day. Can there be any more racket at this course? FYI…train tracks are out of bounds on #1 and #2.

Chatham Seaside Links

This is a funky course that starts with a funky first hole. Sorry to be redundant, but it is funky. It starts with a red/green light that tells you when it is safe to attempt your first drive of the day. Be careful when teeing off on each hole – there are many blind tee shots.  Read more →
