Applegate River Golf Club, Grants Pass, OR

You can’t get there from here! That’s how we felt as we tried to travel from Gold Beach, Oregon to Crater Lake National Park. The most dependable route to get there was to drive down Highway 101 into California, then back up to Oregon via Highway 199 into Grants Pass, then on to Crater Lake. You can also take a wagon train through the wilderness of Siskiyou National Forest, which is the more direct and adventurous route.

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

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.
