Hole #8 – view of the bridge from #8 tee box.

Driving on Cedar Valley Road all we saw were hills and mountains jam-packed with trees. Where could they have possibly built a golf course on this landscape? As we drove farther and farther up the hill and around the bend, here is what we found Read more →

Old Back Nine, Bend, OR. Now I understand!

Sometimes you need a woman to set things straight. Wait, let me rephrase that. All the time, you need a good woman to explain the obvious to you. At the first tee, I noticed the marker stating it was Hole #10. “Hello, Hello, anybody home? Hey, think McFly, think”. Karen had to explain to me… Read more →

Hole #1 – Par 5, 464 yards. Course was a little rough. It had just been open for a week.

Northwood Golf Club – Greeted by Redwoods

Out of the fog and the clouds of San Francisco and into the sunshine between the giant Redwoods at Northwood Golf Course.

Trees, fences, signs…if they are present Woody (thus the nickname) will find them. As we stepped to the first tee, the GIANT Redwoods loomed before us. The bets started to fly as to whether Woody would play pinball through this mammoth forest. My guess, 2nd shot; Dave, 2nd shot; and Ed, 1st shot. And the winner is  Read more →

Hole #4 – Par 5, 500 yards. Tree trouble right but play the slope.

Character and Characters – that is how the members of the Men’s Club described themselves and their course. I had a chance to interact with these characters after my round and you know what? Read more →
