Entrance to Homestead Golf Course

They way I played the 9, wine, and dine event at Homestead Golf Course it should be named the 9, wine before, wine during, wine after, and dine event. We started our round at #17 on the Mountain back nine. The day started with another senior moment, but I’m going to blame my young co-pilot, Greg, for my error. The young guys need to take care of us old fogeys! Here is what happened.

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.

Hurry, don’t be late
I can hardly

I said to myself now that we’re
old
We’ll go drinking at the bar, golfing while searching for par
And reminiscing

Hole #5 – Par 4, 292 yards. Shorty with tree trouble both sides, including the fallen “Woody” tree to the right!

One of the reviews about Gleneagles stated, “getting there, you need to venture through a sketchy neighborhood”. We didn’t think that much about it until we saw the crime scene tape wrapped around the area just behind the first tee box. We asked the pro what had happened at this spot. His answer was frightening! Read more →
